October 14, read through the Bible in a year.

Today we read the third chapter of the letter to the Hebrews and the first two chapters of Lamentations.

October 14: Hebrews 3, Lamentations 1, Lamentations 2 (click on the chapter to begin reading).

Hebrews 3 hammers down the truth about today. “Exhort one another daily, while it is called “Today,” lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.” With God, every day is “today” and so should we also live.  More about that tomorrow. Other than that it also mentions that Jesus is far superior to Moses.

Lamentations 1. It is written as dirge poetry at the time when Jerusalem is afflicted and captured. It is a true acrostic, which means the twenty-two letters of the Hebrew alphabet are used in succession to begin the lines and sections of those songs.

Lamentations 2 It too is dirge poetry written in an acrostic form emphasizing God’s anger over Jerusalem.
