April 7, read through the Bible in a year.

Today there are four chapters,  Read them and appreciate how honest and accurate Jesus describes what really matters and Joshua’s detailed description of the division of the land and the towns, mostly still standing.

April 7: Luke 17Joshua 20, Joshua 21, Joshua 22 (click on the chapter to begin reading)

Luke 17. Jesus begins with telling of the consequences of sin, the importance of faith and the call of duty. Then comes the story of ten lepers healed but only one came back and thanked Jesus, and he was a Samaritan! Finally Jesus tells of the Coming of the Kingdom of God and the end times.

Joshua 20 lists the cities of refuge, three West of Jordan and three East of Jordan.

Joshua 21 lists the 48 towns given to the Levites, they received no land, Finally God’s promise to Israel was fulfilled and the land had rest for a while.

Joshua 22. The Eastern tribes return to their lands. On their way they build an altar by the Jordan. The Western Tribes think they are abandoning the LORD, but not so, they are confirming that “it shall be a witness between us that the LORD is God.”
