September 1, read through the Holy Bible in a year in Power-point, with comments.

Today we read the fourth chapter of the Apostle Paul’s first letter to the Thessalonians and two chapter of Isaiah.

September 1: 1 Thessalonians 4, Isaiah 51, Isaiah 52 (click on the chapter to begin reading).

1 Thessalonians 4. Believers live to please God and were called to purity and godliness, brotherly love and orderly life.  There is comfort in knowing of Christ’s coming for his own.

Isaiah 51 speaks of everlasting salvation out of Zion, via “the rock”. Wake up!

Isaiah 52. God prophetically redeems Jerusalem. “ How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!” Verse 13 and forward is the beginning of the prophecy of the suffering servant.

From Handel’s Messiah this aria is sung all over the world. This is from Oslo, Norway.

Chapter 53, the Suffering servant really begins here. The passage on suffering Servant is never read in Jewish Synagogues, not in the triennial reading, nor at Holy days.

The Bible is nearly void of any description of Jesus. Here is a glimpse.
