Bible Challenge 11/03 - 11/09

Greetings All!

We will be over almost 75% of the way through the Gospels after this week, with Mark done and all but four chapters read in Luke.

The Gospel of Luke is the first part of a two-part book written by the same author. The first part is an account of Jesus' life; the second part, the book of Acts, is an account of the early life of the church. The author Luke was a physician who was a traveling companion of Paul on some of his missionary journeys. He addresses the books of Luke and Acts to Theophilus, probably a Gentile that was either a new believer or someone who wanted to know more about Jesus. Luke elaborates on a lot of the information from Matthew and Mark, including more parables and more stories about Jesus' interactions with people which show his interest in the non-Jewish world and the poor.

Here is the schedule:

03, Sunday: Mark 9-12

04, Monday: Mark 13-16

05, Tuesday: Luke 1-4

06, Wednesday: Luke 5-8

07, Thursday: Luke 9-12

08, Friday: Luke 13-16

09, Saturday: Luke 17-20

May God add His richest blessings to the reading, the hearing, the understanding and most importantly the living out of His Holy Word. Amen.
