At this point, my Bible reading wil be the Bible in 120 days. But, seriously, how bad can reading through the Bible in 120 days be? I generally read through it over the course of the entire year, but am finding this to be more helpful in getting me to read more. Even reading through the Bible 2 or 3 times a year has got to be very beneficial.
This weeks reading schedule:
- Day 57 Jeremiah 33:23 – Jeremiah 47:7
- Day 58 Jeremiah 48:1 – Lamentations 1:22
- Day 59 Lamentations 2:1 – Ezekiel 12:20
- Day 60 Ezekiel 12:21 – Ezekiel 23:39
- Day 61 Ezekiel 23:39 – Ezekiel 35:15
- Day 62 Ezekiel 36:1 – Ezekiel 47:12
- Day 63 Ezekiel 47:13 – Daniel 8:27
Biblical prophecy is not just about predicting future events. Much of it serves a distinctly different purpose. It provides an inspired perspective on current events. Keep this in mind and as you think about the following 2 questions.
1. Use a word or brief phrase to capture Jeremiah’s description of godly people in the following verses:
Do you agree with this list? What would you add or subtract from it?
2. What attributes of God are found in the following passages from Jeremiah?
- 31: 34b
Add in 2 other attributes of God not described in the passages above.
Isaiah 58 describes “fsting”. Many Christians have never fasted. Have you ever fasted? If so, what was it like? What kind of fast did you do? If not, would you consider fasting? Is the sacrifice worth the effort?
Books you’ll encounter this week:
Lamentations: Poetic laments concerning the destruction of Jerusalem.
Ezekiel: Initial prophecies warn of fall of Jerusalem. After the fall, he offers oracles of hope.
Daniel: Daniel and his 3 friends are exemplary representatives of God while in exile in Babylon. While there Daniel pens a number of long-range prophecies.
Are you behind in your reading? If so, keep moving. The main thing is to finish. It doesn’t matter how long it takes you, just keep reading, enjoying, learning and soaking up God’s wonderful word.

Please listen the lessons. I have the dvd’s but can’t post them here…copyright rules. We can discuss what you heard here as well. Listen while you cook, clean or are just taking time to enjoy this journey. I hope you’ll take advantage of this free resource. Listen towards the end of the 7 day time frame, as THIS would be what we would be watching/discussing if we were to be meeting weekly.
