June 25: Reading the Holy Bible in a year.

Acts 17:16-34. Paul was escorted to Athens. Waiting for Timothy and Silas to arrive Paul reasoned with the Greeks about Jesus and the resurrection. Being Greeks they thought the resurrection was the female counterpart to Jesus, so they took him to Areopagus (or Mars Hill), where Paul gave his famous “Athens discourse”. Read it and reflect.

2 Chronicles 9. The Queen of Sheba praised Solomon,” the one half of the greatness of thy wisdom was not told me: for thou exceedest the fame that I heard.” The chapter continues listing Solomon’s wealth and splendor, ending with a record of his death.

2 Chronicles 10. Israel rebelled against Rehoboam, and nothing good came out of that.

May 18: Read through the Holy Bible in a year.

Luke 15 is deceptively simple. Just three parables, the lost sheep, the lost coin, and finally the lost son, the most famous story of redemption of them all. 

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 and their idolatry). It records Solomon’s adversaries, Jeroboam’s rebellion, and Solomon’s death.

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.
