Day 150: Mark 14 – Luke 3

Today in Mark the plot to capture Jesus unfolds.  The last Passover and the Lord’s Supper are carried out.  Jesus goes to Gethsemane to pray and await His capture.  The account of Jesus’ capture, torture, crucifixion and death occur today.  The wonder of the resurrection! Jesus gives the disciples the Great Commission. 


Luke was compelled to investigate the stories of Jesus life and death in order to give us a complete and accurate retelling of events.  We read about John the Baptist birth and life and the birth of Jesus through the start of His ministry.

Day 147: Matthew 23-28

Just three days ago we read of the miraculous birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  We have walked along with Matthew recounting Jesus life.  Today we read the sad story of Jesus’ betrayal and crucifixion.  Then we enjoy the glory of His resurrection! At the end of the book of Matthew, Jesus gives us the great commission.  “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

Day 146: Matthew 16-22

Today we continue to learn about Jesus through the words of Matthew.  Jesus continues to teach us very valuable lessons.  He uses parables and stories to make it easier for us to understand.  “Truly I say to you, unless you are converted and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.”  “Whoever then humbles himself as this child, he is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.”  You should forgive seventy times seven.  “Again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”  The donkey is a fulfillment of prophecy.  “YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND.”  “YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.”
