January 13: Read through the Holy Bible in a year.

In John 9 Jesus opened the eyes of a man blind from birth, Since this was done on a Sabbath trouble arose from the Pharisees. In the arguments that followed Jesus again claimed his divinity.

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

Genesis 24 tells the beautiful story of Isaac and Rebekah.

 

January 11, read through the Holy Bible in a year in Power-point, with comments.

The three chapters chosen for today are

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

In John 10 Jesus told he is the good shepherd and claimed to be one with his Father. This is of course blasphemy (unless it is true), so for that the Jews want to stone him.

In Genesis 22 Abraham was told by God to offer up his son Isaac to be sacrificed on Mount Moriah, the same mountain that Jesus was crucified on. Obeying God he did what he was told, but at the last moment God provided a substitute sacrifice in the form of a ram.

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