July 20: Read through the Holy Bible in a year.

Romans 8:1-27. This is my favorite chapter in all the Bible, and is far too important for my feeble comments. Read it together with all the Old Testament references, let them serve as the commentary; then read it again. Let it sink in, then pray with thanksgiving.

Esther 8. With Haman out of the way, the Jews were still in peril, since the edict of the king could not be changed, so Esther pleaded again to the king and a new edict was proclaimed, the the Jews had every right to defend themselves and strike back, and so Esther saved the Jews.

Esther9. The Jews triumphed, and the first Purim was celebrated.

Esther 10. Epilogue about the greatness of Mordecai.
