Luke 13

For the text of Luke 13, click here. The chapter opens with people coming to give Jesus news. The way they go about it and His response took a little digging into because it didn't make sense right away. They tell Him about some Galileans who had died while they were worshipping and they make it... Continue Reading →

Luke 12

For the text of Luke 12, click here. We began with a warning about the "leaven of the Pharisees". In the previous mentions in Mark 8 and Matthew 16, it had been a little confusing but this one is much more straightforward. Jesus warns them and adds that people will know everything that's been going on.... Continue Reading →

Luke 11

For the text of Luke 11, click here. There is a shortened version of the Lord's prayer in this chapter. It is requested that Jesus teach them to pray and His response is for them to pray: “Father, hallowed be your name.Your kingdom come.3Give us each day our daily bread,b4and forgive us our sins,for we...

Luke 10

For the text of Luke 10, click here. This chapter opens with Jesus "sending out the seventy-two". It states "the Lord" sent them, but then has Jesus talking to them before they leave, so it was a touch confusing that way. But also, He gives them roughly the same speech as He had given the...

Luke 9

For the text of Luke 9, click here. The chapter opens with Jesus sending out the twelve apostles with "power and authority" as was recounted in Matthew 10 and Mark 6. Jesus is mostly quoted the same, though Matthew is a little more wordy as usual and some of the intention does get a little... Continue Reading →

Luke 8

As National Poetry Month has ended, we return to the Book of Luke for our look at the Bible. As mentioned before, this is a study that I'm doing for two reasons. First, I've never read through the whole Bible before and figure it's a good idea as a Christian in general to understand it... Continue Reading →

Psalm 71: Forsake Me Not When My Strength is Spent

Psalm 71 is a psalm of praise for everything God has done for the psalmist while also being a request for His continued support. It swings between the idea that God has always been there for him and that he needs the continued supports a few times and is almost pleading in the feel. Also,... Continue Reading →

A study of yoga and Christianity

I'm currently The Yoga of Jesus and though I'm not far into it, the idea of Christianity and yoga not being complimentary has been something that has always bothered me. Some Christians think of it as being a part of Hinduism or Buddhism, which would detract from practicing Christianity or faith in Christ. Some think... Continue Reading →

Psalm 70: O Lord, Do Not Delay

Psalm 70 is yet another psalm of David, this one listed as a memorial offering. I went back to find what that meant, and it is a part of the offering left for God to remember the psalmist in a good way. I think that means it should be said along with giving a memorial... Continue Reading →

Psalm 69: Save Me, O God

Psalm 69 is a beautiful lament where the author asks God to save them. As I read it, I thought of a person who was in over their heads in life and judged for it by their contemporaries, someone who is trying to make up for past transgressions but failing at it and turning to... Continue Reading →
