May 31: Read through the Holy Bible in a year.

Luke 23:26-56, . On the second most important day in the Christian calendar Jesus was sentenced to be crucified, was forced to carry his own cross but was too exhausted from the floggings. On the cross Jesus said the famous “Seven Last Words”, (taken from the four gospels), then he died and was buried before sundown.

2 Kings 12. The Temple had fallen in disrepair, so Jehoash repaired the Temple. Hazael, king of Aram threatened Jerusalem but withdrew after Joash paid the ransom. After forty years reign Joash died and was succeeded by Amaziah.

2 Kings 13. The Scripture gives us one more history chapter. Jehoahaz reigned in Judah, Jehoash reigned in Israel, Elisha died and Israel recaptured some cities from Syria.

Verse 63 was the verse that finally convinced me that Jesus is risen. The honesty in recording  what the chief priests and Pharisees said suddenly convinced me that the resurrection is true. They too wanted to make sure Jesus was dead for good, and by sealing the grave they wanted to be absolutely sure Jesus would cause no more trouble for them. God works in wonderful ways.

 

April 13, read through the Holy Bible in a year in Power-point, with comments.

Today’s chapter of Luke contains the Good Friday message, read it carefully and ponder. The chapter in Judges is a lesson in how not to behave.

April 13: Luke 23Judges 9 (click on the chapter to begin reading)

Luke 23. This is it, the second most important day in the Christian calendar. Jesus was on trial before Herod and Pilate. Pilate was trying to wiggle out of sentencing Jesus by setting one condemned prisoner free on Passover. The crowd chose Barabbas over Jesus, Pilate reluctantly gave in, so Jesus was sentenced to be crucified.   On the cross Jesus said the famous “Seven Last Words”, (taken from the four gospels), then he died and was buried before sundown.

Judges 9. The Bible tells it as it is, warts and all. So it is with the story of Abimelech’s Conspiracy and the parable of the trees. All the evil led to Abimelech’s Downfall. A take home from this chapter is his last words, after his skull was cracked by a millstone, dropped by a woman. “Draw thy sword, and slay me, that men say not of me, A woman slew him.

January 20, read through the Bible in a year.

Today there is only one chapters, but it deserves to be digested by itself

January 20: John 19 (click on the chapter to read it)

I took the liberty to incorporate all the seven words of Christ on the cross. This requires to take passages from the Gospel of Luke, as well as from the Gospel pf Matthew or Mark. It helped me a lot to get the time-order of events as well as the completeness of Christ substitutionary sacrifice on the Cross and the completeness of it.
