I took a close look at these chapters recently, so this will be a high-level brief look back at these events....continue reading "I Kings: All Things Elijah, Ahab, and Jehoshaphat (Chs. 17-22)"
Continued refresher, as I am going back through some of I Kings and II Chronicles that I've already reviewed before resuming my attempt at chronologically reading the Old Testament....continue reading "More Goin’ Back to Go Forward"
This is listed next in the Blue Letter Bible Chronological listing after I Kings Chapter 11....continue reading "Proverbs 30-31"
I have been on a very long journey to read the Old Testament in chronological order, which (once passed the first few books) is much more difficult than I would have guessed. Once I got passed the divided kingdom and it was going to take a few different books at once to move forward, I made a decision to go back and read more of the end of the united kingdom before it got too far away. So I read some Psalms, Ecclesiastes, and Song of Solomon.
Now, I am heading back to the narrative; but as a refresher, I am going to read through some I Kings and II Chronicles that I've already reviewed....continue reading "Goin’ Back to Go Forward"
Solomon decides that anything can happen to anyone. There is no formula for making God do what you want. And everyone is going to die....continue reading "Ecclesiastes 9-12"

He vacillates between seeing the real purpose we have in the Lord and no purpose as he walks in his own strength trying to use God's wisdom without obidience to the Lord....continue reading "Ecclesiastes 5"
I admit...I stole this title from Wiersbe's commentary on these chapters> I'll have to see if I change it once I read the content; but I'm guessing it's perfect because I think we're about to hit a string of kings and many of them will fly by as they did not glorify God.
Let's check 'em out....continue reading "I Kings 15-16 and II Chronicles 13-16: Kings on Parade"
I'm back into the narrative portion of the story of Israel and it's final days as a united kingdom. Or more precisely, it's first days divided. There are now two parallel story lines running. Today I'm going to be following Jeroboam after his decidedly evil tour into idolatry- taking his tribes with him....continue reading "I Kings 13: God Warns Jeroboam"
I have two posts in which I comment on each stanza as I read Psalm 119, now I'll take a second look via the NIV Chronological Bible side notes and my Wiersbe Commentary....continue reading "Wisdom Psalms: Psalm 119 Deeper Dive"
Next up in the wisdom psalms is Psalm 119, the longest Pslam, by far. This post will cover the first 72 verses, the first 9 stanzas....continue reading "Wisdom Psalms: Psalm 119: 1-72"
