chronological day 267 :)

WE MADE IT TO THE NEW TESTAMENT!  Is anyone else ready for some Jesus up in here?Mark 1:1, Luke 1:1-4, John 1:1-18, Matthew 1:1-17, Luke 3:23-38, Matthew 1:1-17, Luke 3:23-38, Luke 1:5-38.  As the Gospels share many histories (four disciples sharing many of the same events from their unique perspectives), there will seem like lots of repetition here.  Hang in there – remember, when there was repetition in the Old Testament, we reminded ourselves often that it was good for us.  What’s your highlight today? 

267

The good news of Jesus Christ—the Message!—begins here, following to the letter the scroll of the prophet Isaiah.

Watch closely: I’m sending my preacher ahead of you;
He’ll make the road smooth for you.
Thunder in the desert!
Prepare for God’s arrival!
Make the road smooth and straight!

(Mark 1:1-3 MSG)

Yay! I’m ready for some NT and some Jesus! Some 400 years have passed Malachi and Joel – God has been silent these 400 years and now He comes with the Word became flesh! It’s hard not to highlight everything – one more before we close today:

The Word became flesh and blood, and moved into the neighborhood.
We saw the glory with our own eyes, the one-of-a-kind glory,
    like Father, like Son, Generous inside and out,
    true from start to finish” (John 1:14 MSG)

And now God, in the flesh, coming to us!

    John 1:17 For the law was given through Moses, but God’s unfailing love and faithfulness came through Jesus Christ.
    It was a sight to read how many generations went by until Jesus was born. I think it’s the first I read in the Bible going through Jesus’ geneolgy and it read, Adam was the son of GOD. So much I want to write about and can’t wait until tomorrows reading! New Testament just gives me a different feel while reading the Bible.
