February 21: Read through the Holy Bible in a year.

Matthew 11:20-30. Jesus despaired of the current generation, but promised: “Come to me…. my yoke is easy and my burden is light”.

Leviticus 25 defines the Sabbath year, a year of rest for the land,  and the year of the jubilee, the year when property is restored, rights redeemed, and slaves are set free. (As far as I know the year of the jubilee was never implemented)

Leviticus 26 tells of blessing for obedience and punishment for disobedience.

Leviticus 27 deals with redeeming people and property and what is to be dedicated to God.

February 21, read through the Holy Bible in a year in Power-point, with comments.

Today’s reading in the gospel of Matthew deals with the events the two days before Jesus was crucified. In addition we read the last chapter of Leviticus.

Matthew 26 is enormous. It begins with the plot against Jesus, continuing with his anointing at Bethany, then Judas agreeing to betray Jesus for thirty pieces of silver, continuing with the Lord’s supper being initiated, Jesus predicting who is going to betray him, moving on to the Mount of Olives, where Jesus prayed in the garden of Gethsemane, where he prayed “Not my will, but yours be done,”after which he predicted Peter’s denial.  Jesus prayed three times and then came the betrayal and arrest of Jesus and he wss taken to the Sanhedrin to be interrogated. The chapter ends with Peter’s denial.

Leviticus 27 deals with redeeming people and property and what is to be dedicated to God.
