“God, who made the world and everything in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands. Nor is He worshiped with men’s hands, as though He needed anything, since He gives to all life, breath, and all things. And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; for in Him we live and move and have our being, as also some of your own poets have said, 'For we are also His offspring.' Acts 17:24-28
If you’re following along with the One Year Chronological Bible Reading Plan, you may already be aware of that. And I hope you look forward to watching these short videos by the Bible Project. I think they do such a great job of explaining the story within each book as well as how each book contributes to the story of the Bible as a whole. The Chronicles video linked below is only 6 minutes and 28 seconds long. Enjoy!
Sunday we read the book of Ruth and then Monday we start reading 1st Samuel. Enjoy the two videos linked below (each under 10 minutes long) before you open Ruth so you know where the story is headed. If you’re a subscriber, you’ve already received the posters and the outlines, so you can follow along with those as you watch the videos. Enjoy!
“I know to you I may look old, hope this statement ain’t too bold, but heyeah come de’ Judge, heyeah come de’ Judge!” That’s right! The book of Judges is up next and Judge Pigmeat Markham isn’t mentioned once! Haha!
What I see when I read the events in Judges is the US of A and nations all around the globe, all throughout time, replaying the same tragic tales over and over because of the original lie, “…you will be like God,…” Almost 3,000 years ago, King Solomon said (he hasn’t been born yet at this point in the story), “And there is nothing new under the sun.” If that was true waaaaay back then, imagine how much truer it is today? Watch the <8-minute video linked below and allow yourself to see stories of God’s unending, unfailing grace for His wretched people and let yourself understand that we’ve been granted EVEN MORE grace than they! WOW!
