Week 17: April 23 – April 29

Still more numbers in this Book of Numbers, but also some intriguing stories about life in ancient, tribal Israel.

When you read through these chapters in Luke this week, notice Jesus’ sermon. Compare and contrast Matthew‘s “sermon on the mount” with Luke‘s “sermon on the plain.”

Charlotte’s blog this week ponders connections between the story of Israel as told by the Hebrew writers and the story of the church as described by the New Testament theologians.

It’s alright to read quickly and get the highlights. Just hang in there and keep reading.
