February 21, read through the Bible in a year.

Today there are only two chapters to read, but when you do you’ll understand why.

February 21: Matthew 26Leviticus 27 (click on the chapter to begin reading)

Matthew 26 is enormous. It begins with the plot against Jesus, continuing with his anointing at Bethany, then Judas agrees 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, Jesus praying in the garden of Gethsemane where he predicts Peter’s denial, and continues in prayer: “Not my will, but yours be done.” Jesus prayed three times and then came the betrayal and arrest of Jesus and he is 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.

Matthew 26, the plot against Jesus, Jesus anointed at Bethany, Judas betrayal, the Lord’s supper, Gethsemane, Jesus arrested, Peter’s denial.
