Today’s Old Testament chronological reading is in Jeremiah 43 and 44.
(Please see Chronological Notes Documentation to understand why the book of Jeremiah must be read out of order to read it chronologically.)
The Psalms/ Proverbs reading is in Proverbs 1.
The New Testament reading is in Revelation 1.
The Rev 1 Expanded Chiasm pdf is new for today. Let’s take this opportunity to debunk some theories I have heard circulating out there, which Rev 1 addresses.
The name of Yeshua. Have you heard it said that anyone who speaks the name, “Jesus Christ,” is speaking the name of a false idol? The translation of the Greek Scriptures (the New Testament) into English uses the name, “Jesus Christ.” Yeshua’s Hebrew name, translated into English, is “Yeshua haMashiach (the Messiah).” His Hebrew name, translated into Greek, is “Iesous Christos,” and then translated from Greek, into English, is “Jesus Christ.” That’s the whole controversy. “Yeshua” is a translation from Hebrew to English; “Jesus” is a translation from Hebrew to Greek to English, and that is why they are different. But the name has the same meaning, and designates the same Being. That the name “Jesus” is the name of a false idol, is itself, a false testimony; and we, above all people, must not bear false witness.
The deity of Yeshua. Have you heard it said that Yeshua is not the same as YHVH come in the flesh? This chapter makes clear that this assertion is likewise a false testimony. There are many other Scriptures that are just as clear that Yeshua is God, that the fact of Yeshua’s deity stands upon the testimony of two or more witnesses. How, you may ask, can Yeshua be both Son and Father? I maintain that He is Son for the purpose of His ministry, to come in the flesh and become the sacrifice for our sins. I maintain that God is smarter than we are, and some things we will not understand completely until we are freed from the finite limitations of the human mind.
