WE WEREN’T quite finished after all! Marilyn Abbott, who spotted our oversight of Deuteronomy 9 about six weeks ago, informed us this week that we’d also skipped over three chapters of the Gospel of John. (Thank you again, Marilyn!)
So, today we discuss Jesus’ final meeting with his disciples just before his betrayal in the garden of Gethsemane. This included his promise of the coming of the Holy Spirit, a prophecy of his return from the grave, and his prayer that the Father protect his disciples (and us) from the attacks of those who are in service to the ruler of this world (i.e., Satan).
WE REACH the end of the Old Testament today, the Book of Malachi, and with that we have completed our first journey through the entire Bible.
We discuss God’s condemnation of faithless rituals and the priests that perform them, His anger at those who had “married the daughter of a foreign god,” and His promise to return on “the great and awesome day of the Lord.”
NEHEMIAH DISCOVERED what God had known for centuries (well, since the beginning of time, actually): His people were a stubborn lot.
After returning from a visit to the Persian king Artaxerxes to report on the work that had been done in Jerusalem, Nehemiah discovered that the reforms he and Ezra the priest had instituted, a return to the Law given to Moses, had already been forgotten. Jerusalem was open for business on the Sabbath, with people buying, selling, and working through their day of rest.
