Today, June 1 Matt. 1:1-12:50
This is the first day in the challenge to read the New Testament in the month of June. Thanks for coming along.
I’m curious how your reading went today. How long did it take you to read accomplish the daily segment? I did it in about 40 minutes. Did you do it in one sitting, or break it into a number of sessions?
You may find this pace of reading may not be conducive to deep study, but I’m trusting that we’ll gain a “big picture” perspective that will be helpful.
What stood out to you in our reading in Matthew today? I was struck by how so many did not get who Jesus was, or what he was about.
I also intrigued the “prophet’s reward” mentioned in Matthew 10. Spent a few minutes in a commentary looking into this passage and saw how people were blessed when they honored prophets like Elijah and Elisha. How much more are we blessed when we recognize and embrace the one who is “greater than Moses.”
By the by, was I the only one whose brain was a little foggy this morning?
Any way, let me here from you. I’d love to see some robust interaction via the comments!
Tomorrow, June 2 Matt. 13:1-22:32
