March 30, read through the Holy Bible in a year in Power-point, with comments.

Today we read four chapters, one chapter of Luke, the Pentateuch is read and the historical writings begin, starting with Joshua. Enjoy!

March 30: Luke 9, Joshua 1, Joshua 2, Joshua 3 (click on the chapter to begin reading)

In Luke 9 Jesus sent out the twelve apostles, Herod tried to meet with Jesus because his fame was rising, at one time he fed the Five Thousand (besides women and children). Peter Confessed Jesus to be “The Christ of God”. A week later followed the Transfiguration and the next day a boy with an evil spirit was healed. The disciples argued about who would be the greatest.  Jesus spoke against sectarianism, and on their way to Jerusalem they met Samaritan opposition. Finally Jesus told the disciples there is a cost of following Him.

Joshua 1 tells of  God’s Commission to Joshua. The LORD gave the order to Cross the Jordan, “Only be strong and of a good courage”.

Joshua 2 tells the story of the innkeeper Rahab and the spies. From this story we get the idiom “a scarlet thread”.

In Joshua 3 the Israelites were finally crossing the Jordan.
