Hannah is a woman who wanted a son after having been thus far unable to bear a child. God granted her prayer.
We have a very special guest reader today. James Cooper, my co host on the Lifespring! Why Christmas Show, reads the book of Ruth.
Ruth is a short book that is a marvelous story of loyalty, devotion and love.
We conclude the book of Hebrews. Among other subjects, the apostle Paul lists what I call “The Faithful Hall of Fame”.
Paul explains how the old covenant required repeated sacrifices (that did not bring permanent forgiveness), but in the new covenant, Jesus’ sacrifice was “once for all”.
Paul compares the Levitical law and priesthood to the New Covenant and Christ’s priesthood of Melchizedek.
Today begins a new year in the reading of God’s Word. This is a repeat of last year’s show.
Today’s reading: John 1 chapters 1 and 2.
