Our Bible reading in the book of Numbers will end with chapter 32 on Tuesday, as the tribes of Reuben, Gad, and the half-tribe of Manasseh take possession of important land east of the Jordan. This schedule will skip the book of Deuteronomy altogether in our daily reading. This is not to minimize the importance of that book (and this blog will certainly cover much of it in the future) as the New Testament – and Jesus himself – quoted from it often. But this ambitious reading schedule is intended to help give a better understand of the Bible (in a years reading) as a complete story – one that has a beginning, a middle, and an ending.
So, with that in mind, we will sadly say farewell to Moses as we read of God’s charge to Joshua on Wednesday and close out this month with the first three chapters of that book in God’s word. Joshua is a very easy book of the Bible to read and love – and, more importantly, much 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 11 (March Week 2) of the schedule I am following. This short PDF document contains condensed comments about Exodus chapters 16, 17, 19, 20 and 24, 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.
