Daily Bible Reading:  Matthew 3 – 4

Chapters 1 and 2 include five Old Testament prophecies about Jesus. Today’s reading includes yet another. They originated from multiple prophets: Isaiah, Micah, Jeremiah, and Moses, who lived during a time period spanning 800 years! Every single one proved spot-on in describing Jesus! Why do you suppose the vast number of Jews during His lifetime on earth failed to recognize Him as the Messiah? Even more significant –why do non-believers do so today when the evidence is overwhelming?

Matthew 3 records the baptism of Jesus by John the Baptist. Talk about awkward! Jesus, God incarnate on earth, appeared at the River Jordon and asked a mere mortal to baptize Him! Why do you think He did this? What lesson did He teach us by this example?

Think about the four questions asked. I predict they’ll cause you to think more deeply about what is presented in today’s Bible reading.
