February 1: Read through the Holy Bible in a year.

John 21 tells of the eighth miracle of Jesus. This miracle of a great catch of fish happened after Jesus resurrection and was a sign of new beginnings. Jesus reinstated Peter and told him: “Feed my sheep.”

Exodus 12 tells of how God instituted the Passover. The name comes from the action that night, when the angel of death came to kill every firstborn in Egypt, if he saw the blood of the pascal lamb om the doorposts and the lentil of the house, he would pass over that house. The chapter is fantastic, read it and marvel!

In Exodus 13 the feast of unleavened bread is defined and the consecrating of the firstborn to the LORD. The Hebrews have escaped from Egypt, and a proposed route is suggested.

John 21 tells of the eighth miracle of Jesus. This miracle of a great catch of fish happened after Jesus resurrection and was a sign of new beginnings. Jesus reinstated Peter and told him: “Feed my sheep.”

Genesis 44 tells how Joseph tested his brothers by having Joseph’s own silver cup placed in Benjamin’s sack as the brothers returned back to Canaan. They all passed the test and returned to Joseph to await his judgment.

In Genesis 45 Joseph revealed himself to his brothers, and all rejoiced. It contains the phrase “But God” and shows clearly that God was in control all the time.

In genesis 46 Jacob joined his brothers in going to resettle in Egypt, and is a retelling of the names of all that went, sixty-six total – not counting women and children.

John 21, another catch of fish, Jesus reinstates Peter.

That makes it eight miracles of Jesus, seven before his resurrection and one after.

 

Knowing John mentioned only seven miracles my rendition of the NIV study bible omits the man born blind, washing in the pool of Siloam.

The Ryrie NIV study bible mentions John mentions seven miracles, then goes ahead and lists all eight.

The first two times Jesus asks “Do you love me” he uses the word agappe, which means godly love, and Peter answers that he loves Jesus (fileo) with a brotherly love. The third time Jesus too uses the word fileo. Peter was hurt. He realized how far short of godly love he still was
