“Long ago God spoke to the fathers by the prophets at different times and in different ways. In these last days, He has spoken to us by His Son. God has appointed Him heir of all things and made the universe through Him.”
Hebrews 1:1‭-‬2 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 44th week of our daily Bible reading plan.

This week we read from John 8-9:1-25, II Peter 2-3, I John 1:5-10, Job 4-9:1-20, Ezekiel 13-26.

We continued our reading from the book of Job. This week we read Job 4-9:1-20. It’s important to note that the book of Job is considered the oldest book of the Bible. This is an indicator that the development of knowledge was still underway at that time. It means man was still largely unaware of the person of Satan.

In the above chapters, we see Job’s friends speculate about his misfortune. They are of the opinion that Job’s misfortune is self-caused because of his unrighteous dealings, and God is teaching him a lesson. They ask him to repent, instead he insists on his blamelessness and God’s unjust treatment of him.

In Ezekiel 13-26, we read a number of prophecies, proclamations, narratives and parables about foolish prophets, idolatry, God’s love for Jerusalem, the rebellion of Israel, and so on.

In John 8-9:1-25, we read about healings performed by Jesus on the Sabbath. We also read teachings by Him concerning His death, burial and resurrection. Not only this, He made an unequivocal statement that He is God. (See John 8:58)

In II Peter 2-3, we read about the destructiveness of false doctrines. After this, Apostle Peter painted a picture of the long-suffering of God – how He “is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.” (II Peter 3:9 NKJV)

In the light of this, he admonished us to remain steadfast in Christ and “grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory both now and forever. Amen.” (II Peter 3:18 NKJV)

We ended our reading of II Peter and started with I John. So far, we have read one chapter. An overview of the book will be done next week.

And that’s all we read in our Bible reading plan this week, family. Have a beautiful weekend. Also, remember to read your Bible and pray everyday.
