January 5, read through the Bible in a year.

Today there are only 3 chapters, but they are significant.

January 5: John 4, Genesis 9, Genesis 10, (click on the chapter to begin reading).

John 4 speaks about the first real evangelist, the woman at the well, scorn and rejected by her many husbands, yet used by God to tell the good news.

Genesis 9 speaks about Noah’s sin and “the curse of ham” in reality the curse of Canaan, ponder that!

Genesis 10 tells how the earth was repopulated.

John 4, the woman at the well, healing of the official’s son at Capernaum.

It would have been much easier to follow the Jordan River up to Galilee.There are two possible routes, both cumbersome.

Nobody draws water in the middle of the day unless they have to.

Jesus spoke in Aramaic, which makes the statement “I am” even stronger. Jesus claimed he is God.

The last word is “cosmos”. Jesus really is the savior of the universe.
