“I incline my heart to perform your statutes forever, to the end.”
Psalm 119:112 ESV

Welcome to Bible Reading Plan Recap – that time we do a quick summary of what we read in the Bible this week. It’s the 16th week of our daily Bible reading plan. Wow! We’ve come this far! Glory to God!

This week, we read from Mark 6-8, 1 Corinthians 11-13, Psalms 85-89, and Judges 8-18.

Judges 8-18 continues with stories of Israel’s back and forth idolatry and repentance. Even the judges God raised up did not follow His laws. Sometimes, they carried out heinous acts similar to those of the heathen nations surrounding them. This can be seen in Gideon’s carved ephod (Judges 8:27), Jephthah’s offering his daughter as a sacrifice (Judges 11), Samson’s disregard for the Nazirite Law (Judges 13:7, 14:9, 13:5, 16:19), to mention a few. In those days, everyone did whatever was right in his eyes (Judges 17-18).

We read from Psalms 85-89 this week. Psalms 85, 87 and 88 are psalms by the sons of Korah. They speak of God restoring glory to Israel after their exile from their land. Psalm 86 is a prayer of David while Psalm 89 is a contemplation of Ethan the Ezrahite.

In Mark 6-8, we read about the feeding of the five thousand and four thousand, the hypocrisy of the Pharisees traditions and various healing and miracles performed by Jesus.

Finally, we read from 1 Corinthians 11-13. Here, Apostle Paul explained the significance of the Passover, also known as the Lord’s Supper. He also did a thorough explanation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit, and the importance of love in Christian ministry.

This is all that we read this week. We still have more grounds to cover. Buckle up!
