April 28: Read through the Holy Bible in a year

Luke 4:1-21, Jesus ministry started with his Temptation in the wilderness, from which we get the 40 days of Lent. At every temptation initiated by Satan Jesus quoted scripture to show his total reliance on God and His word. Satan also used scripture, so watch out! Going to his hometown of Nazareth Jesus fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah 61.

In 1 Samuel 28 David was among the Philistines and Saul consulted a woman with a familiar spirit, the witch at En Dor. The medium did bring up Samuel!

1 Samuel 29. The Philistines rejected David.

Luke 4:1-21, the Temptation of Jesus, Isaiah 61 prophecy fulfilled.

Luke 4:1-21, the Temptation of Jesus,  Isaiah 61 prophecy fulfilled.

 

The devil is good at using scripture to tempt the believer!

The Dead Sea Scroll of Isaiah is 54 segments long. Jesus had to scroll down for quite some time before he found the passage, even though he knew where it was!

Notice, Jesus ended the reading of Scripture in the middle of the sentence. We now still live in the time between “the acceptable year of the LORD and the day of vengeance of our God”!
