October 18, read through the Bible in a year.

Today we read the seventh chapter of the letter to the Hebrews and four chapters of Ezekiel.

October 18: Hebrews 7, Ezekiel 5, Ezekiel 6, Ezekiel 7, Ezekiel 8 (click on the chapter to begin reading).

Hebrews 7 tells of Jesus, the high priest, after the order of Melchizedek. Thanks to this, animal sacrifices according to the Law are done away with, and “ For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens;  Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people’s: for this he did once, when he offered up himself.  For the law maketh men high priests which have infirmity; but the word of the oath, which was since the law, maketh the Son, who is consecrated for evermore.

Ezekiel 5. There will be a sword against Jerusalem.

Ezekiel 6, God proclaims judgment on idolatrous Israel.

Ezekiel 7. And this judgment on Israel is near.

Ezekiel 8 Because there are abominations in the Temple.
