April 2: Read through the Holy Bible in a year

Mark4:21-41. Jesus spoke in parables 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 while in a boat on lake Genesareth, and chastised the disciples for their lack of faith.

Joshua 14 describes the land west of the Jordan river, and that Caleb, still in his strength at the age of 85 wanted to inherit the hilly land of Hebron.

Joshua 15 defines geographical borders: The land of Judah, Caleb occupies Hebron and Debir and a listing of the cities of Judah.

Joshua 16 describes the land that belongs to the half tribe of Manasseh, west of Jordan, and also the land of Ephraim.

Psalm 28, of David. As so often with David, he began with a petition, asking for deliverance, then turned to praise.

Psalm 29, of David. A song of praise. This Psalm gives us a vivid description of a storm, and how the voice of God speaks through it.

May 18, read through the Holy Bible in a year in Power-point, with comments.

While taking a pause between reading the Acts of the Apostles and Paul’s epistle to the Romans we read today two Psalms  and three chapters in 1 Kings.

May 18: Psalm 29, Psalm 30, 1 Kings 9, 1 Kings 10, 1 Kings 11 (click on the chapter to begin reading)

Psalm 29, of David. A song of praise.  This Psalm gives us a vivid description of a storm, and how the voice of God speaks through it.

Psalm 30, for the dedication of the Temple. Of David. ( An alternate translation : For the dedication of the House of David.) It was written for the dedication of David’s palace, but Charles Spurgeon thought that it was actually written prophetically for the dedication of the Temple – which David prepared for, but Solomon built. You decide.

1 Kings 9 tells of God’s Second Appearance to Solomon, this time with a promise and a warning. Solomon and Hiram exchanged gifts and it records more of Solomon’s achievements.

In 1 Kings 10 the Queen of Sheba visited Solomon and praised him “The half had not been told”; of Solomon’s great wisdom and wealth, that is.

1 Kings 11 Solomon’s heart turned from the LORD, ( blame the foreign women with their idolatry). It records Solomon’s adversaries, Jeroboam’s rebellion, and Solomon’s death.
