January 20, read through the Holy Bible in a year in Power-point, with comments.

The chapter chosen for today is so gigantic, and the consequences of reading and  the potential life changing results of understanding the message, it deserves to be digested by itself.

January 20: John 19 (click on the chapter to read it)

I took the liberty to incorporate all the seven words of Christ on the cross. This requires to take passages from the Gospel of Luke, as well as from the Gospel pf Matthew or Mark. It helped me a lot to get the time-order of events as well as the completeness of Christ substitutionary sacrifice on the Cross and the completeness of it. It is finished!

Matthew 27, Judas hangs himself, Jesus trial, the mocking, the Crucifixion, Jesus death, burial and securing the tomb.

Matthew 27

 

Verse 63 was the verse that finally convinced me that Jesus is risen. The honesty in recording  what the chief priests and Pharisees said suddenly convinced me that the resurrection is true. They too wanted to make sure Jesus was dead for good, and by sealing the grave they wanted to be absolutely sure Jesus would cause no more trouble for them. God works in wonderful ways.
