“Indeed, all who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted” – 2 Timothy 3:12
Today, most of us never know real persecution for our Christianity (although I assure you that even in this land that claims to be the hallmark of freedom, people and even entire organizations are persecuted every day for speaking the truth). But the reminder for this day is that we are incredibly blessed by the many means available to us to read the Bible – in print, on the Internet, and even on our phones!
It hasn’t always been that way. There were times not so long ago that people even had to meet secretly to hear someone read from a portion of God’s word. Do some search engine look-ups on persecution for Bible translation and publishing, and stories of people like John Wycliffe and many others will tell you much.
We need to thank the Lord every day for the privilege we have today of having His word so easily ready for us to learn from!
Each weekend, I am now posting a small PDF of one week of chapter summaries (on the website’s “Summaries” page), current to the beginning of the previous week. I have posted the summary for Week 10 (March Week 1) of the schedule I am following. This short PDF document contains condensed comments about Exodus chapters 8, 9, 10, 11-12, and 13:17-14:31, with hyperlinks to the ESV version of each chapter for listening or reading, and joins the summaries for other weeks already posted there.

When reading ANY commentary, you should ALWAYS refer first to the scripture, which is God’s unchanging and unfailing word. Reading schedules, as well as a link to the site where you can get the reading plan that I’m currently following for yourself can be found on the “Bible Reading Schedules” page of my website at http://graceofourlord.com.
