“Who has believed what we have heard? And who has the arm of the Lord been revealed to? But He was pierced because of our transgressions, crushed because of our iniquities; punishment for our peace was on Him, and we are healed by His wounds.”
Isaiah 53:1, 5 HCSB
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 38th week of our daily Bible reading plan.
This week, we read from Luke 23-24, Hebrews 10-12, Proverbs 27-29, and Isaiah 46-61.
In Proverbs 27-29, we read wise sayings like:
“Faithful are the wounds of a friend, But the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.” – Proverbs 27:6 NKJV
“A prudent man foresees evil and hides himself; The simple pass on and are punished.” – Proverbs 27:12 NKJV
“The wicked flee when no one pursues, But the righteous are bold as a lion.” – Proverbs 28:1 NKJV
Isaiah 46-61 contains a number of prophecies and proclamation concerning the fultility of worshipping idols, the blessedness of salvation through the Messiah for Israelites and the Gentiles, as well as the redemption of Jerusalem.
In Luke 23-24, we continue with the story about the arrest of Jesus. Chapter 23 narrates His trial before Pilate, Herod and how He was condemned to be crucified rather than Barabbas. Without further ado, He was crucified, died and buried. And by the power of God, He arose!
In Chapter 24, we read the famous road to Emmaus event, where Jesus revealed Himself through Scriptures rather than through self display. After several appearances, the disciples got convinced of His resurrection. Consequently, Jesus committed the Gospel, and its preaching in their hands, before ascending to heaven.
Finally, in Hebrews 10-12, the writer of Hebrews explained to us how the sacrifice of animals cannot take away sins. In fact, the sacrifices in themselves is a reminder of sins. Only the sacrifice of Christ can take away sins, which makes it a perfect sacrifice.
After this, the subject matter of faith was dealt with in detail. If we read it closely, we will see it has nothing to do with believing God for things, rather faith in Christ’s sacrifice is the central focus.
And that’s all we read in our Bible reading plan this week, family. Have a beautiful weekend.
