“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
Next week I’ll post Esther and Malachi which will finish off this month as well as what’s commonly known as the Old Testament. October’s reading schedule will be a separate post at the end of this month and it’ll be presented just like I’ve done in previous months. In the email subscribers get, I’ll have all the readings set up to flow smoothly, so if you’d like to get the daily emails, subscribe now.
We start reading Ezekiel tomorrow, so that video is linked below and, if you’re a subscriber, you got the outline and poster yesterday, so you’re set! September starts on Monday so, as you can see, that schedule follows the video link and you’re set there, too!
We start reading the gospels on October 1st! In reading the gospels chronologically, there’s so much flipping around which tends to distract you from the story. I want your daily readings to flow as smoothly as possible so that your understanding is optimized! Starting October 1st, I’ll send out a daily email to my subscribers which will have a link to that entire day’s reading at BibleGateway dot com where you can read it in your preferred translation. The email will also have the full text of that day’s reading in the World English Bible (WEB) translation because it’s not copyrighted. For instance, October 1st will look like this:
October 1: John 1:1-14, Luke 1:1-2:7. Click on that link (or copy and paste it into your browser/search bar and choose the BibleGateway result). Let me know if the link didn’t work, so I can get it fixed before I start emailing them daily, please. And following the link will be the full texts of each reading just as they’re listed in the link. Subscribe today so you can get your daily gospel reading email!
As I’ve read through the Bible, chronologically, every year since August 2008 I’ve suspected patterns and themes, but haven’t ever nailed them down with any certainty and when I found The Bible Project videos, I raised a hallelujah to God for their work. I love the way they show how the book of Daniel is designed. It makes so much sense to me and adds so much to the reading of it. It lays out the patterns I’ve long suspected and tells me that it wasn’t just my imagination seeing something that wasn’t there. It’s all intentional and brilliant! Just like God, right?
And they explain the book of Joel so clearly and simply.
That said, below are the links to the videos and I’ll be back next week with Ezekiel’s video and September’s reading schedule.
