Reading from the Modern English Version
Today we are cruising through two chapters of the book of Matthew. Last week we read through the genealogy of Abraham to Jesus, through His birth, and ended with His baptism.
We are reading from the Modern English Version this week.
Today’s voyage will take us to the book of Daniel in the Exile stream. Last week Daniel and his friends, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego ate their vegetable diet instead of the meat and wine at the king’s table. Daniel and his friends are living out the prophecy that we have been reading in Isaiah. They are in the land of the Babylonians. But God is not done with Israel. He is still looking for hearts and minds who are willing to listen to Him. And that is what Daniel does.
We are actually starting in Isaiah 3:18 so that we can start today’s reading in context. We are continuing down the Prophetic Stream in the Modern English Version.
