In Titus, Paul gives advice on what a church leader’s character should be like, and in Joel we read more prophecy of the end times.
We conclude Revelation with a vision of what is in store for believers and non-believers, then begin Hosea, where we see God’s ultimate vision of forgiveness for Israel, even though she is often unfaithful.
A short trip back to the New Testament to read the entire book of 2 Thessalonians, in which Paul addresses a church that he is happy with, and then back to the Old Testament to begin the prophetic book of Jeremiah. In today’s reading, Jeremiah brings God’s message to Israel. It is a message of disappointment and jealousy.
Paul ends his letter by encouraging the saints. Lamentations is a book written about Israel after the people have turned away from God and He had allowed it to fall.
Paul finishes his letter to the Galatian church by telling them to not put themselves back into bondage to the law, but to be free in Christ and to serve one another in love.
The Book of Job ends today, and we begin the New Testament book of Galatians. The Apostle Paul asserts emphatically that is is faith that saves a person, not adhering to the law.
The crucifixion, the burial and the resurrection of Jesus.
Jesus and the disciples have their last supper together, Jesus is betrayed into the hands of his enemies, and Peter denies him three times.
Tension between Jesus and the religious leaders increases. Also, Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem takes place.
One of the highlights of today’s chapters is the fact that we are told to pray persistently, and that God hears and answers the one who prays in this manner.
