May 9: Reading the Holy Bible in a year.

Luke 9:37-62. A day after the Transfigurationon the mount Jesus healed a boy with an evil spirit. The disciples argued about who would be the greatest, and as an object lesson Jesus picked up a little child and said: “He who is least among all, he is 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.

2 Samuel 21. David made a deal with the Gibeonites, and during a number of battles, some of the Philistine giants were killed, among them Goliath (not the one you think).

Mark 9:33-50. Jesus’ disciples argued among themselves who was the greatest. To give a perfect object lesson Jesus picked up a little child and explained what it means to be “a servant of all”. Jesus taught unity, not division, “whoever is not against us is for us,” and warned of of the dire consequences of offenses and told them to be “salt with savor” and to be at peace with each other.

Judges 12 records Jephthah’s conflict with Ephraim, where they killed people based on their accent. After that three more people, Ibzan, Elon and Abdon led Israel.

Judges 14. Samson started out great, but then he took a Philistine as his Wife.

Judges 15. Samson defeated the Philistines with the jawbone of an ass.
