Wisdom or money can get you almost anything, but it's important to know that only wisdom can save your life. Notice the way God does things; then fall into line. Don't fight the ways of God, for who can straighten out what he has made crooked?
Enjoy prosperity while you can. But when hard times strike, realize that both come from God. That way you will realize that nothing is certain in this life. (Ecclesiastes 7:12-14)

A New Year that brings with it a New Beginning. Today we set out to begin the daunting task of reading through the entire Bible. For some this will be the first time and will bring with it tons of questions and probably comments like, “What does this all mean?” Some stories will be exciting and better than the entire series of The Godfather or more spectacular than Star Wars. There will also be plenty when you will think of giving up with a statement saying, “God, this is boring and besides, this makes no sense.”

From a veteran Read through the Bible Reader, may I encourage you to stay focused and read even when it seems like you are chewing wood. I began reading through the Word in 1987 and some of the “What in the world does this mean?” have just begun to be answered. Each and every time I go through I get a deeper understanding of the things I grasped at first and at each succeeding reading though and an a simple understanding of things I just had no clue about.

Genesis is the Book of Beginnings so let us come to this book leaving behind our preconceived understandings and ideas, our denominational glasses suspending our disbelief and unbelief believing that God’s Word will explain itself to us in the daylight of His Word.

Whom will he teach knowledge?
And whom will he make to understand the message?
Those just weaned from milk?
Those just drawn from the breasts?
For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept,
Line upon line, line upon line,
Here a little, there a little.”
For with stammering lips and another tongue
He will speak to this people
(Isaiah 28:9-11-NKJV)

In the Beginning is our chance to study God’s Principals and Patterns so that we can apply those patterns and principals to our lives.

Notice the way God does things; then fall into line. Don't fight the ways of God

Grace and peace to all in the New Year,
Ramona

Rollcall!

Kimberly from sunny Florida.

1. Have you read the entire Bible before? Yes, I just finished 2009 One Year Bible Blog. What a blessing it has been!

2. What are you looking forward to about reading the entire Bible in 2010? To hear God speak through his word again and this time, reading through with my husband.

3. What's your favorite book or verse in the Bible? Romans 8:38-39.

Thank you for this blog, we are looking forward to this year!

Jo from New Mexico

Yes, I have read the entire Bible before, but it has been a while.

I am looking forward to learning what God wants to teach me through His word, and with the Holy Spirits help applying it to my life.

My favorite verse in the Bible is Romans 8:28 "For all things work together for the good of those who love God who are the called according to His purpose."


I really appreciate your work on this blog! Have a wonderful day!

Woohoo!
Time for another spin with the One Year Bible!

Thanks for this blog! I appreciate your hard work.
------------------

"In the beginning God..."
Right from the start, Scripture just states the fact that God exists. It shows us that He is the one God, all-powerful and the creator of the entire Universe, including humankind.

Scripture never tries to convince us that God exists, it only declares the fact that God exists! The created Universe itself declares His existence and glory!

"O LORD...when I look at the night sky and see the work of your fingers--the moon and the stars you have set in place--
what are mortals that you should think of us, mere humans that you should care for us?" (Psalm 8:3-4)

I am so thankful to know that God is God and I am not!
Praised be the LORD!
peace,
Jeff

Matthew (Difficulties)

Mat 1:16 And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ.

Luk 3:23 ....He was the son, so it was thought, of Joseph, the son of Heli,

Was Joseph the son of Jacob or Heli? Is this a contradiction in the Bible?

Matthew is Joseph's genealogy and Luke's list is for Mary. Jacob is Joseph's father. Heli is Joseph's father-in-law.

Genealogies were important to the Jews and were meticulously kept. At the least these lists are meant to show we are talking about real people here in the gospels.

If Mary had no brothers (we know she had at least one sister), then according to Numbers 27 and 36 Mary would gain the inheritance of Heli. To keep the heritage Mary must marry in the same tribe. Both Joseph and Mary are from the tribe of Judah.

Joseph would be listed in Mary's genealogy because they run through males and Heli's line would run through his daughter's husband.

Jew or Gentile was determined by the mother. Jesus was Jewish. Tribe was determined by father. Through adoption (Jews thought of it as bringing one into the family) - Jesus was of the tribe of Judah.

Joseph's line contained Jeconiah and his curse by God (Jer 22). No descendant of the "seed" of Jeconiah would ever sit on the thorne of David. Is the curse circumvented because Jesus is not of the "seed" of Joseph? Perhaps. Or maybe because of Mary's inheritance by Numbers 27,36 the kingship passes through Mary because her genealogy changes at David (Nathan rather than Solomon).

Regardless in Luke 1 Gabriel says God gives Jesus the throne of his ancestor David (Through both Mary and Joseph). God seems to know the rules of Law and is a God of great details so I am OK with Jesus' right to the throne.
======================================================
Immanuel or Jesus?

Which is it? Is it a contradiction?

Immanuel is one of the names of Jesus. Joseph was told by angel to name Him Jesus. Jesus has many names and titles - just google to see the list.

Immanuel means "God with us". Going through Bible from Joseph through Revelation - "God with us" means blessings and prosperity. In general Jesus' arrival meant blessings and prosperity for mankind. The specific nature of how this is carried out is in His given name: Jesus - "Jehovah is salvation". Salvation comes from God - not human (dead or alive), works, rituals, money, or bloodlines etc.
======================================================
Magi

Remember that Daniel was chief magi during the babylonian captivity. Daniel was a Godly man, and I like to think he converted some magi to belief in Jehovah. Perhaps these magi are descendants of believers.

Gifts symbolic?
Gold was a gift for kings.
Frankincense was used by priests of the temple.
Myrrh was used in embalming (For the savior's sacrifice).

King, High Priest, Redeemer. All the bases seem covered.

Genesis

Why two creation accounts?

Chapter one is about the creation and its order. the word for God is "Elohim" and its Hebrew root means strength or power. The God that created the Universe is a strong powerful God.

In Chapter 2 starting in verse 4 the name changes to Yahweh Elohim (Lord God). Yahweh is the personal name of God - so the powerful strong creator was becoming personal with His creation when He made man.

The God of the Bible is a personal God not a distant deity, and here in Genesis 2 that point is made.

So here's the roll-call questions: 1. Have you read the entire Bible before? I have read the HOLY BIBLE from cover to cover for the THIRD year in a row. 2. What are you looking forward to about reading the entire Bible in 2010? I READ the BIBLE daily for SPIRITUAL strength and guidance. I am now ATTEMPTING to memorize SCRIPTURE in order to grow in my understanding of the WORD!! 3. What's your favorite book or verse in the Bible? Luke, God be merciful to me a sinner. 4. What's a fun or interesting fact about yourself? My entire church is going to read the Bible this year. www.fpcinv.org I have read the NIV Adventure Bible for Kids, The King James version and the NIV Self Study Bible Concordia, my favorite version is the KJV, I love the language in this version. 5. City and country you live in? (if you're comfortable sharing this - you don't need to.) Inverness, FL 6. Do you have a blog or website link that you want to share with everyone? http://inblindschool.blogspot.com/ Thanks for participating in the roll-call! :) Also, what verses or insights stand out to you in today's readings? God created everything in the world, without God we would be nothing.

I have read through the Bible before and am looking forward to letting God speak to me through the reading again this year. My favorite verse is Psalm 16:11. I am a missionary to Niger, West Africa.My blog is http://hannatu.blogspot.com

I understand how Genesis 1 tells the story of creation and how Matthew 1 tells how Jesus's family tree fits in to the story of creation, the things that I do not understand is how Psalm 1 and Proverb 1 fit in to the story of creation. Can anyone help clarify this for me?

With God's help, I am reading the Bible through his year for the first time.

Since my father's passing in April, God has transformed me and given me peace. At midnight, I laid down the past and walked away into the light. No description for the feeling...it is awesome!

No real favorite books or verses yet, but there will be.

I live in Elkhart, USA.

I do not have a blog or website at this time.

2010-A new beginning and reformation!

This is my fourth year reading through the Bible. Every year God grants me further insight into his word and the promises he holds for me. I know he is the one thing in this world that is certain...My favorite verse: We love Him because He first loved us. I lead a small group, in-home bible study. It was pretty scary for me to start leading it (I am not a seminary student or anything) but it has become a wonderful time of fellowship and support. I am encouraging my group to read through the bible this year, as well. I live in Spring, Tx, a northern suburb of Houston.

I have read the bible before but on my own and sometimes found it confusing and lost interest. I am hoping by joining this group and reading together I will reconnect and strengthen my relationship with God. I really don't have a favourite book or verse but hopefully will by the end of 2010. I live in Canada about an hour west of Toronto in a small town called Fergus and attend a non denominational bible church in Geulph, Ontario.

Rollcall from Stafford in snowy Virginia:

1. Have you read the entire Bible before? Yes, twice before on my own but I am looking forward to reading it this year as a member of this group

2. What are you looking forward to about reading the entire Bible in 2010? Continued growth and understanding of God's Word so that may more effectively apply it to my life and have a positive impact on others and help lead them to Christ

3. What's your favorite book or verse in the Bible? John 1:1

4. What's a fun or interesting fact about yourself? I am retired but it seems that I stay busier now than when I was working...

5. City and country you live in? (if you're comfortable sharing this - you don't need to.) Troutville, Virginia

6. Do you have a blog or website link that you want to share with everyone? No, I do not have a blog or website at this time

Roll-call! :D

1. Have you read the entire Bible before? - Not yet, although I have really tried before. Being a teenager, a lot of things really keep me back from finishing the Bible in a year, so it is my prayer that this year will the year that I finish reading the Bible. :)

2. What are you looking forward to about reading the entire Bible in 2010? - I look forward to reading about all the promises that He has for me, esp. with me growing up and being steps closer to establishing my place in this world.

3. What's your favorite book or verse in the Bible? - My Lifevere, Jeremiah 29:11. :)

4. What's a fun or interesting fact about yourself? - I study in a Christian college! :D

5. City and country you live in? (if you're comfortable sharing this - you don't need to.) - I live in Quezon City, located in the Philippines. :D

6. Do you have a blog or website link that you want to share with everyone? - sadly, no. XD

Raeann,

Like you said, I too have seen connections between different readings from the same day. However, I do not recall there ever being a connection between all four sections in one day.

On the other hand -

In Psalm 1
1 Blessed is the man...

Actually is written "ashri -eaish" with no verb. This is a Jewish idiom for "Oh the happiness of man" or "oh Happy man". Being blessed is being in a state of happiness. A stretch but perhaps a picture of Adam and Eve's state initially in the garden.

In te same vein, Proverbs 1 is perhaps a picture of what the two already had in their initial perfect state, but what we now have to attain and grow into through Jesus Christ.


Mike: I am writing about this site in my column in Atlanta Faith and Family to encourage people to start the new year off right by beginning to understand the Word of God so that they will know and understand God. Never before has our nation needed God so much. You can just Google Atlanta Faith and Family Examiner; also I have another column called Atlanta Woman to Woman Examiner. Or you can follow these URL's

http://www.examiner.com/x-7462-Atlanta-Faith--Family-Examiner

I have been linking this site on mine for the past 8 months - you can find it in the bottom right hand corner of Atlanta Faith and Family.

The second one I have only been writing for a few months; but the response has been great.

God bless you and your continued efforts to make Bible reading easy for everyone. Love, Patricia

My E-mail address is [email protected]; but it says it is not a good one. I am going to use an alternate one.

I have been reading the Bible in a year several times and several versions on my own. I did this exact version last year on my own and was looking desperatly for a deeper study of the Bible. On December thirty first I found this on the internet and I'm all excited about doing this as a group this year.

Forest Falls, CA
I've had the One Year Bible for several years.... the first year I read very inconsistently picking up days here and there. The next year I didn't skip days and in the years time read as far as March (very inconsistent). 2009 I found the One year Bible Blog in late March and read my Bible consistently through the rest of the year. I'm looking forward to 2010 learning more about our LORD and having HIm grow me in my faith and knowledge of Him. It's great to have other believers that you know all reading the same scriptures and growing together.
Mike I appreciate your faithfulness to the blog, your knowledge of the word, practical insights, thought provoking questions, encouragement to be more Christlike, and the praise music that closes our quiet time in the Word. Thank You!

Roll-call! :D

1. Have you read the entire Bible before? - Yes, but I was only about 12 or 13 when I finished and I had only done it to finish a program I was in, now I would like to do it for a better understanding and spiritual growth. :)

2. What are you looking forward to about reading the entire Bible in 2010? - I am looking forward to my growing relationship with Jesus and all he wants me to learn.

3. What's your favorite book or verse in the Bible? - Psalm 139. God always brings me back to this chapter. First as a young girl, then when I was pregnant with all my children, each time giving me new and different insight.

4. What's a fun or interesting fact about yourself? - About 7 months ago I had my third child, after 6 years of prayers and doctor saying I couldn't have anymore children...:)

I think it is interesting that the question of "time" was brought up. As a child I was alway taught that the Creation did not take place in six, 24 hour periods, but rather over an extended period of time. When scripture says "Evening came, and morning followed...." I always took it to mean that "evening" referred to the ending of an era and that "morning" was the beginning of a new age in time. Either way it is still a breathtaking glimpse at the power of GOD.

Georgetown Texas
still working on finishing last years readings - that is/was my first time to read it through and what a blessing! (that is why I am not letting the calendar date stop me from finishing!)

comments from Genesis:
"created in His image" leads me to these significant points - created to *be in relation to Him *to seek and serve Him * to honor and glorify Him * to let HIS light reflect and shine through me (only by His grace) to show Him to others

comments from Mattew:
God led w/ a star in 2:9 and will lead again w/ a pillar of clouds/fire coming up soon, then later He is in the whisper - He still guides us today - we just have to listen!

Relating to the fact that 5 women, some gentiles, and some w/ 'sorted' pasts are mentioned in the genealogy - even sin and war are no surprise to God and certainly will not thwart God's perfect plan for salvation b/c of His great love for us! (think Rom 8:28)

Roll call

I have tried also really hard to do the entire bible with you guys for a couple of years. I do good for a while and slide a little, I am really going to stay focused and always seek God first and keep up the journey with you guys. I have really enjoyed this link when I stumbled on it I believe in 2008. Your readings and comments are awesome.:-) I live in Georgia and also want to encourage all that either have a good church or need an uplifting worship and word of faith preacher heard please check out our church sometime. www.lcci.us, we have free archives all the time and will send out our cds free by request. Have a great one and be blessed and not stressed in 2010!!! woohoo, its going to be a great year.

1. Have you read the entire Bible before? I have read it on my own but not in a systimatic way with commentaries.

2. What are you looking forward to about reading the entire Bible in 2010? A
deeper understanding of the Bible and deepening of my faith

3. What's your favorite book or verse in the Bible? After a rather hard year (2009) I am claiming Jer.29:11.

4. City and country you live in? Birmingham, AL

5. No Blog or website.

I do look forward to this challenge and will do my best to finish. This is not my New Year's Resolution but a commentment to myself.

I am in my fourth year of reading the entire Bible - I followed your posts last year, but previously followed D A Carson;s For the Love of God. What I love is that every time I read through the Bible I find something I have never noticed before and it feels to me that God is bringing to my attention things I need to know.

I live in Sydney Australia.

I'm Barbara, of Sacramento CA. The first time I read the Bible through quickly it was to get to know God for myself, rather than basing my beliefs on what I heard other people say. I saw throughout the whole Bible, God's love. That led me back into relationship with Him after a lapse of about 15 years. I always mean to read through the Bible again, but usually allow busyness to squeeze out my daily Bible reading time. This year, with the inspirational help of OYB and prayers of all, I believe I can look forward to daily Bible reading because by doing so, I will (and we will) experience God's presence. We will look forward to it because God's Word will be like our very BREATH for renewal each day.

In todays reading I ponder what it means to be created in the image of God with the authority to rule and reign over my life's circumstances with God and my helpmeet counseling, leading, guiding, etc. in mutually supportive roles.

P.S. I'm encouraging my husband and Bible study home group members to join me in this OYB reading plan. I think it would be beneficial for us to be able to support each other in it with our discussion and prayers.

RR/bajo.

Fifth time through, reading just the OT this year (2006 the whole bible, 2007 OT only, 2008 NT only, 2009 Psalms/Proverbs only)

Chance to focus on the OT, especially in contrast to a NT class I will be doing in Jan/Feb. In'07 I read the OT and did an OT class, and it was too anticlimactic to finish the OT after the class ended.

In the OT, I'm looking forward to reading Joshua and Hosea.

Actually knowing that I've read everything at least once, something about not knowing if I've read certain passages before bothers me.

1. Have you read the entire Bible before? Yes but it was a long time ago

2. What are you looking forward to about reading the entire Bible in 2010?

I want to read the entire bible this year with a hunger in my soul and a longing in my heart for the word of God. This may or may not be true but I heard last night a preacher said that when a Jewish woman has a baby when it is first born she puts a drop of honey on it's tongue.... later she will put a little honey in it's milk.... when that child becomes old enough to start reading she puts a drop of honey on the word of God. Think about it.... I want to be hungry for the word of the Lord

3. What's your favorite book or verse in the Bible? The book of psalms is definitely one of my favorties but it's very hard to choose because different verses will be my comfort and joy on different days.

4. What's a fun or interesting fact about yourself?

I can't really think of anything to put here.... I just love the Lord although I hope we all do here! :)

5. City and country you live in? (if you're comfortable sharing this - you don't need to.)
