September 16: Reading the Holy Bible in a year.

Philippians 2:1-11. The Apostle Paul urged the believers to imitate the humility of Christ. Verses 7-11 are in the form of a hymn and shows how Jesus, even though he always is God, emptied himself and became obedient to the cross, even unto death.

Isaiah 61. This is the year of the Lord’s favor. Jesus started his ministry finding this prophecy in the scroll of Isaiah and read it but stopped mid-sentence. It also gives “beauty for ashes” and proclaims the good news of salvation.

Isaiah 62. Zion’s new name will be called Hephzibah and the land will be called Beulah, salvation is coming.

Isaiah 61, the Year of the LORD’s favor, the Good News of Salvation.

This is the same Holy Spirit that is granted all who truly believe.

This was the passage Jesus read in the synagogue of Nazareth right after his temptation in the wilderness at the very beginning of his ministry.

We are still in the year of the LORD’s favor, but before the day of vengeance, the age of grace.

More exact translations:  1:6, A Kingdom, Priests. 5:10, A Kingdom and Priests.

According to Mosaic Law the firstborn receives a double portion.

The everlasting covenant between the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit existed before the beginning of time, before creation. The manifestation on Earth happened at the appointed time.
