Well, “Hello world” is pretty cliche for a beginning, but it still seems appropriate.
The goal here is essentially to be a companion for anyone desiring to study the Bible, especially those who have made a resolution to read the Bible through in one year. OK, I know that we’re already a few days into the new year, but we’ll start tomorrow, Jan. 13, and pretend it’s Jan. 1.
Now, this means that I’ll be touching on about three chapters or so per day, and consequently I’ll not be able to comment on every interesting thing to be found in three chapters. As a general rule I’ll be commenting on things that I find interesting or especially useful to practical Christian living. Doubtlessly, there may be things in the holy text that you have questions about that I didn’t comment on. You’re certainly welcome to submit your questions in the comment section here. Perhaps I pick the thread of your question in a subsequent post — or perhaps even a special post.
Since my interests include archaeology and biblical languages, I’ll occasionally bring in some of those pieces of data that might help bring out more clearly the meaning of Scripture. I’m hopeful that you’ll find it stimulating and that it will help you keep your Bible reading resolution.
Please let me know, if or when you find a post especially helpful. It will keep me encouraged and help me to know what approaches to my comments are most helpful to my readership. May the Lord bless and keep all of us in this trip through His inspired word.
See you tomorrow, Lord willing. 🙂
