December 23, read through the Bible in a year.

Today we read one chapter of Revelation and two chapters of Zechariah

December 23: Revelation 14, Zechariah 10, Zechariah 11 (click on the chapter to begin reading).

Revelation 14. The apostle John again saw the vision of the lamb and the 144000 Jewish male virgins. Then he saw and heard three angels making their proclamation. And then came time to proclaim the reaping the earth’s harvest, the Grapes of Wrath. This vision is later portrayed in the Battle Hymn of the Republic.

Zechariah 10. The LORD promised future restoration of Judah and restoration of Israel.

Zechariah 11. The LORD  proclaimed judgement on Israel, but then comes the prophecy of the shepherds. The chapter also contains the famous quote: “I said unto them, If ye think good, give me my price; and if not, forbear. So they weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver. And the Lord said unto me, Cast it unto the potter: a goodly price that I was prised at of them. And I took the thirty pieces of silver, and cast them to the potter in the house of the Lord.
