ESV Study Bible in a Year (Jan 8)

Today's passage: Psalm 7, Genesis 8:1-9, I Chronicles 8, and Luke 4:1-44. You can read or listen to these passages by clicking here.

The verse I underlined today was from the Psalm. Verse 11 says, "God is a righteous judge, and a God who feels indignation every day."

I also found the Luke passage very interesting. It is Luke's account of the very beginning of Jesus' ministry. Jesus goes to a synagogue near his home and reads from a passage of Isaiah. After he reads it says that, "the eyes of all in the synagogue were fixed on him." He confronts them in their unbelief (because they knew he was Joseph's son) and then they try to kill him.

I mean, can you imagine someone in your church confronting the congregation to such an extent that the result was the congregation rising up and trying to throw the speaker off of a cliff?

Anyway, what did you read today? Are you trying to read through the Bible in a year?
