Why this Bible Study?

Have you ever tried to study the Bible and found no accountability or drive to continue forward?...

Or have you tried to read the Bible, but found that you were just going through the motions as you couldn't even remember what you just read?... 

Or maybe, you tried some of the Bible reading plans out there that bounce around the Scriptures both in the Old Testament and the New Testament every day never really gaining an overview of the Holy Scriptures?...

This is what we hope to help you with! We want to come along side you and show you a way to actually consume the Word of God and finally get to know the Lord personally. Our desire is to help you grow as a True Believer in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ who is the Word of God!  

 

How it works?

You will need to provide us an email address where you would like us to send the Bible Study.

Once we receive your email address, you will begin receiving an email from us on a daily basis. You can then open the email on your own time whenever you have the opportunity. You don't have to meet up or have a time set aside to study with others. You engage whenever you want. Some people like to study when they wake up in the morning while others prefer to read just before they go to bed.

The point is you set the time aside that meets your lifestyle and fits your schedule. The idea is to start to develop a habit that makes it easier for you.

To start receiving our Bible Bible Study on a daily basis, simply provide your email address on the right.

That's it!

No money is required for this service as we are trying to help our brothers and sisters in Christ grow closer to Christ before it is too late!

What is the value of THIS Bible Study over others?

The value in this Bible Study is we walk with you every day.

As iron sharpens iron, our hope is to help each other grow in our knowledge and relationship with Jesus Christ.

One of the things that we do that is different than any other Bible Study is we offer "thoughts" on the Scripture reading for that day. This information is much more informal and hopefully enriching. We will provide our thoughts ... and more importantly, you are given the opportunity to give your thoughts on the reading. 

Why would you want to do that?... The reason is... when you have to think about what you are reading, you actually have to engage your mind on what is being read. You focus much more while you LOOK for something to share. You become an active participant rather than taking a passive role. 

And the best thing is you don't have to come up with some relevation or write some book report. You can share what you want. You may just pick a Scripture verse that caught your eye, and say one sentence on the matter. The point is look for something to share and just reply to the email.

This exercise is really about helping you become an active participant in reading the Word of the Living God!

    

      

When does it take place?

It is EVERY DAY!... The object is to develop a habit so you begin to hold yourself accountable.

It will come to you every day directly to your email address. And everything will be there for you... IN THE EMAIL!

You simply open the email and begin to read or listen to the Bible reading for the day. As I said, we also provide you a button in the email for you to use the audio version. We want to make it as easy for you as possible.

The amazing revelation you will discover is you can do this in as little as 10 - 15 minutes every day! You will be stunned at how fast we actually go through the Holy Scriptures!

The Genealogy of Jesus

1 A record of the genealogy of Jesus Christ the son of David, the son of Abraham:

2 Abraham was the father of Isaac, Isaac the father of Jacob, Jacob the father of Judah and his brothers,3 Judah the father of Perez and Zerah, whose mother was Tamar, Perez the father of Hezron, Hezron the father of Ram,4 Ram the father of Amminadab, Amminadab the father of Nahshon, Nahshon the father of Salmon,5 Salmon the father of Boaz, whose mother was Rahab, Boaz the father of Obed, whose mother was Ruth, Obed the father of Jesse,6 and Jesse the father of King David.

David was the father of Solomon, whose mother had been Uriah's wife,

7 Solomon the father of Rehoboam, Rehoboam the father of Abijah, Abijah the father of Asa,8 Asa the father of Jehoshaphat, Jehoshaphat the father of Jehoram, Jehoram the father of Uzziah,9 Uzziah the father of Jotham, Jotham the father of Ahaz, Ahaz the father of Hezekiah,10 Hezekiah the father of Manasseh, Manasseh the father of Amon, Amon the father of Josiah,11 and Josiah the father of Jeconiah and his brothers at the time of the exile to Babylon.

12 After the exile to Babylon: Jeconiah was the father of Shealtiel, Shealtiel the father of Zerubbabel,

13 Zerubbabel the father of Abiud, Abiud the father of Eliakim, Eliakim the father of Azor,14 Azor the father of Zadok, Zadok the father of Akim, Akim the father of Eliud,15 Eliud the father of Eleazar, Eleazar the father of Matthan, Matthan the father of Jacob,16 and Jacob the father of Joseph, the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ.

17 Thus there were fourteen generations in all from Abraham to David, fourteen from David to the exile to Babylon, and fourteen from the exile to the Christ.

The Birth of Jesus Christ

18 This is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be with child through the Holy Spirit.19 Because Joseph her husband was a righteous man and did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly.

20 But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, "Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit.21 She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus,

22 All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet:23 "The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel"--which means, "God with us."

24 When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took Mary home as his wife.25 But he had no union with her until she gave birth to a son. And he gave him the name Jesus.

The Visit of the Magi

2 After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem2 and asked, "Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star in the east and have come to worship him."

3 When King Herod heard this he was disturbed, and all Jerusalem with him.4 When he had called together all the people's chief priests and teachers of the law, he asked them where the Christ was to be born.5 "In Bethlehem in Judea," they replied, "for this is what the prophet has written:

6 "'But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah,
    are by no means least among the rulers of Judah;
for out of you will come a ruler
    who will be the shepherd of my people Israel.'"

7 Then Herod called the Magi secretly and found out from them the exact time the star had appeared.8 He sent them to Bethlehem and said, "Go and make a careful search for the child. As soon as you find him, report to me, so that I too may go and worship him."

9 After they had heard the king, they went on their way, and the star they had seen in the east went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was.10 When they saw the star, they were overjoyed.11 On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold and of incense and of myrrh.12 And having been warned in a dream not to go back to Herod, they returned to their country by another route.

The Escape to Egypt

13 When they had gone, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream. "Get up," he said, "take the child and his mother and escape to Egypt. Stay there until I tell you, for Herod is going to search for the child to kill him."

14 So he got up, took the child and his mother during the night and left for Egypt,15 where he stayed until the death of Herod. And so was fulfilled what the Lord had said through the prophet: "Out of Egypt I called my son."

16 When Herod realized that he had been outwitted by the Magi, he was furious, and he gave orders to kill all the boys in Bethlehem and its vicinity who were two years old and under, in accordance with the time he had learned from the Magi.17 Then what was said through the prophet Jeremiah was fulfilled:

18 "A voice is heard in Ramah,
    weeping and great mourning,
Rachel weeping for her children
    and refusing to be comforted,
because they are no more."

The Return to Nazareth

19 After Herod died, an angel of the Lord appeared in a dream to Joseph in Egypt20 and said, "Get up, take the child and his mother and go to the land of Israel, for those who were trying to take the child's life are dead."

21 So he got up, took the child and his mother and went to the land of Israel.22 But when he heard that Archelaus was reigning in Judea in place of his father Herod, he was afraid to go there. Having been warned in a dream, he withdrew to the district of Galilee,23 and he went and lived in a town called Nazareth. So was fulfilled what was said through the prophets: "He will be called a Nazarene."

John the Baptist Prepares the Way

3 In those days John the Baptist came, preaching in the Desert of Judea2 and saying, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near."3 This is he who was spoken of through the prophet Isaiah:

"A voice of one calling in the desert,
    'Prepare the way for the Lord,
    make straight paths for him.'"

4 John's clothes were made of camel's hair, and he had a leather belt around his waist. His food was locusts and wild honey.5 People went out to him from Jerusalem and all Judea and the whole region of the Jordan.6 Confessing their sins, they were baptized by him in the Jordan River.

7 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to where he was baptizing, he said to them: "You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the coming wrath?8 Produce fruit in keeping with repentance.9 And do not think you can say to yourselves, 'We have Abraham as our father.' I tell you that out of these stones God can raise up children for Abraham.10 The ax is already at the root of the trees, and every tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire.

11 "I baptize you with water for repentance. But after me will come one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not fit to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire.12 His winnowing fork is in his hand, and he will clear his threshing floor, gathering his wheat into the barn and burning up the chaff with unquenchable fire."

The Baptism of Jesus

13 Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptized by John.14 But John tried to deter him, saying, "I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?"

15 Jesus replied, "Let it be so now; it is proper for us to do this to fulfill all righteousness." Then John consented.

16 As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and lighting on him.17 And a voice from heaven said, "This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased."

        

        

 

NOTES

 



Matthew 1-3,

The genealogy provided in the book of Matthew is so often overlooked and briefly skimmed over. Yet, there are so many insights in this account if you actually study it with more detail. This account in Matthew is the *legal* genealogical record of Jesus through Joseph. The angel of the Lord confirms this account shown in Matthew 1:20, “an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit.” Joseph is confirmed by the angel as a direct descendent to David. As you will notice, this lineage comes through David’s son, Solomon while the genealogical record provided in the book of Luke goes through David’s son Nathan to Mary the mother of Jesus. 
     
Another interesting note in the Matthew account are the women named in the lineage of Christ namely Tamar, Rahab, Ruth, Bathsheba, and Mary. All of which shows the incredible GRACE OF GOD. Each of these women have very interesting stories that God provides details about in the Holy Word of God. God’s grace manifests itself through their inclusion. It is not a whitewashed account at all. Their addition to the genealogy only provides more assurance that the Word of God is truly HIS WORD and not merely man’s account.
     
Additonally, God said that the Messiah would come from the line of David. When you actually read the genealogical record and study it intently, you find out so much information especially with some background into the OT and the prophets. Remember Jeconiah was the King of Judah when they were exiled to Babylon. He was taken to Babylon as well. Unlike his uncle, Zedekiah, who was killed, Jeconiah was protected by the King of Babylon. He and his family continued to live in Babylon. He would be the Grandfather of Zerubbabel who was given the charge to bring the people back to rebuild the temple from Babylon. To have some OT insight into the genealogy of Christ is fascinating to see how it played out. God saved the lineage of Jesus even when they were not necessarily good people.
