March 4, read through the Holy Bible in a year in Power-point, with comments.

The four chapter chose for today are one chapter of Mark dealing with Jesus’ parables and three chapters in Numbers dealing with Balaam’s oracles and Balaam’s error.

March 4: Mark 4, Numbers 23, Numbers 24, Numbers 25, (click on the chapter to begin reading)

Mark 4 starts out with the parable of the sower, and Jesus provided the explanation of it, and with that the key to the parables. Then He told the parable of the lamp on a stand, not under a bushel, and the parable of the seed in the ground, followed by the parable of the faith of a mustard seed, all parables relating to the Kingdom of God. Finally Jesus calmed the storm and chastised the disciples for their lack of faith.

Numbers 23 tells of Balaam’s first oracle, his second oracle, and the beginning of his third oracle.

Numbers 24 continues with Balaam’s third oracle, his fourth, and his final oracle.

Numbers 25 finally tells how Israel went astray in Moab.

Question:  Why were they still terrified? Why was the sight of Jesus more terrifying than the waves?
