Bible Reading Plan (Day 32)

DAY THIRTY-TWO — Genesis 33, Mark 4

Gen 33

Is this the same Jacob? He seems to have no trick up his sleeve. He seems to have no ulterior motive.

Jacob shares his blessing with his brother. And says he will meet his brother eventually in Sier.

Looks like the same Jacob. Instead of going to his brother’s town, he goes to Canaan.

Mk 4

Jesus teaches, as is his primary activity.

Parables are given as coded messages from God to His people. To understand them is a sign of God’s favor, to be confounded by them is a sign of God’s judgement.

We see again the miracle of Him calming the storm. And the miracle of the apostles STILL not getting it.

Questions to Ponder:

* Explain why Jacob would again deceive his brother.

* What parable gives you pause and why?
