NL-Day023 Genesis 38-39; Job 23; Mark 14:43-72
In yesterday's reading, we heard of Joseph's dreams, his brothers' jealousy, and Joseph being sold into slavery in Egypt.
Yesterday Eliphaz said:
GNT 4 It is not because you stand in awe of God
that he reprimands you and brings you to trial.
5 No, it's because you have sinned so much;
it's because of all the evil you do.
And he also said,
21 Now, Job, make peace with God
and stop treating him like an enemy;
if you do, then he will bless you.
22 Accept the teaching he gives;
keep his words in your heart.
23 Yes, you must humbly return to God
and put an end to all the evil
that is done in your house.
24 Throw away your gold;
dump your finest gold in the dry stream bed.
25 Let Almighty God be your gold,
and let him be silver, piled high for you.
28 You will succeed in all you do,
and light will shine on your path.
Beware that some teachers of prosperity in our age say things just like that, and quote such verses without understanding the message of this book.
Yesterday we heard the story of the Last Supper, the prophecy that Peter would deny Jesus three times, and the prayers at Gethsemane.
GNT Translation note:
Gen. 38:6 For his first son Er, Judah [arranged a marriage with a woman named//got a wife whose name was] Tamar.
Mrk. 14:62 “I am,” answered Jesus, “and you will all see [me—] the Son of Man[,] seated at the right side of the Almighty and coming with the clouds of heaven!”
64 You heard his blasphemy. What is your decision?”
They all voted against him: [He was judged guilty and sentenced to death.//he was guilty and should be put to death.]
