My mom challenged me to join her in a read through the Bible in a Year plan that her church is doing, and I *meant* to get caught up and join her... but...
Well, I’m hopelessly behind now, but I did go ahead and print out the schedule. I checked off the Bible readings I’m doing with Sonlight 5 (Matthew, I and II Corinthians, Hebrews, James, I & II Kings, and Daniel), and I went ahead and started then with what I’m *not* already reading for school.
So, for my Bible reading today, I read Mark 1-3. Having recently completed Matthew, I was struck again by how different the Gospel writers are in their style and emphasis. And maybe reading it the day before Easter had something to do with my interpretations, but I was struck by how, even in the first couple chapters, Mark emphasizes how Jesus came to forgive sinners. He didn’t come to die for me when I’m being all self-righteous.
Oh, and if anyone else wants to see what I’m up to... or to join Mom & I... Hope Lutheran Bible Reading Challenge
