100 Days

10 Apr

Cheers!  I am on track with a 2018 New Year’s Resolution (that I never considered until last year)…to read the entire Bible. Late last year Doreen Virtue introduced on Instagram two One Year Bibles formatted Chronologically as well as one with Old and New Testament, plus Psalm and Proverb selection for each day of the year.  Doreen posts a 30 minute video on Instagram daily for the respective readings.  Video archives are loaded on VIMEO.

Believe it or not, I find reading both versions of the One Year Bible helps retention.  Also, pairing the New Testament with the Old Testament readings illuminates

St Augustine’s quote “The New Testament lies concealed in the Old, the Old lies revealed in the New.”

The Old Testament is best known for laws…over 600 in Deuteronomy.  Many of the rules relate to matters of justice, public health, accuracy in weights and measures, land grants and subjects that we take for granted today.  Detailed building instructions were given for Noah’s Ark.  I was surprised with the detailed instructions for constructing the Ark of the Covenant, which according to Samuel 1 was eventually captured by the Philistines.

I found the Book of Job compelling…40 chapters long and in a manner of speaking, asks “Why does bad things happen to good people?”  Spoiler alert!  Sometimes it is a test.

I describe the One Year Bible with Old, New Testament, Psalms and Proverbs each day as a “matrix format” which the  helps with recognition of prophecy and foreshadowing.  I am surprised with the frequency that verses from Deuteronomy are quoted in the New Testament.

265 days to go…
