April 25: Read through the Holy Bible in a year

Luke 2:1-20. The birth of Jesus is so well known that even Charles Schulz’ Peanuts tell of the Birth of Jesus, and the Shepherds and the Angels. Beginning in 2015 many school districts banned the play because of the biblical quotes. Some replaced it with Frosty the Snowman, something we all can believe in.

1 Samuel 20, . Jonathan and David vowed an oath of loyalty, saying: “The Lord be between me and thee, and between my seed and thy seed for ever.”

In 1 Samuel 21 David and his men ate from the Holy Showbread. After that David fled to the Philistine city-state of Gath and pretended to be insane to stay alive.

1 Samuel 22. David gathered four hundred men and went back into Judah. Because the LORD’s priests had helped David, Saul had Doeg the Edomite murder the priests, eighty-five in all.

1 Samuel 23. David Saved the City of Keilah, was pursued by Saul, spending most of the time in strongholds of the wilderness.

Luke 2 is so well known that even the Peanuts tell of the Birth of Jesus and the Shepherds and the Angels. Beginning in 2015 many school districts banned it because of the biblical quotes. Some replaced it with Frosty the Snowman, something we all can believe in. The chapter continues with telling of Jesus in the Temple, Simeon’s and Anna’s testimonies, and Jesus at age 12, also in the Temple. Read it and marvel.

Deuteronomy 24 tells of Divorce Laws and limitations for remarriage, Leprosy, Lending Laws, how to properly pay workmen, and after harvest please leave the gleanings.

Deuteronomy 25 tells of the marriage duty of a surviving brother, how to weigh with honest measures, and, totally unrelated, destroy the Amalekites.

Luke 2, the Birth of Jesus, the Shepherds and the Angels, Jesus in the Temple, Simeon’s and Anna’s testimonies, Jesus at age 12 in the Temple.
