January 11, read through the Bible in a year.

Today there are three chapters.

January 11: John 10, Genesis 22, Genesis 23 (click on the chapter to begin reading)

In John 10 Jesus is the good shepherd and claims to be one with his Father, for which blasphemy (unless it is true) the Jews want to stone him.

In Genesis 22 Abraham offers up his son Isaac to be sacrificed on Mount Moriah, the same mountain that Jesus was crucified on, but at the last moment God provides a substitute sacrifice in the form of a ram.

In Genesis 23 Abraham’s wife Sarah dies and Abraham purchases a grave in Mamre, where Abraham, Isaac and Ishmael buried her.
