April 4: Read through the Holy Bible in a year

Mark 6:1-13, In Mark 6  Jesus proclaimed ”A Prophet is not without honor, but in his own hometown, and among his own kin.” Jesus sent out the Twelve, and they were amazed they could heal too.

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. God’s promise to Israel was Finally fulfilled and the land had rest for a while.

Joshua 22. The Eastern tribes returned to their lands. On their way they built an altar by the Jordan. The Western Tribes thought by doing so they were abandoning the LORD, not so, they were confirming  “it shall be a witness between us that the LORD is God.”

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

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.

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.
