February 9

Matthew 26:14-46
Psalm 31:19-24
Proverbs 8:14-26

Exodus 29:12 – Blood is found 363 times in the Old Testament. We’ll read about blood sacrifices quite regularly. Hebrews 9:22 tells us “without shedding of blood is no remission.”

Exodus 30:9 – In a few days we’ll see how seriously God took a violation of this command (Leviticus 10:1).

Matthew 26:14 – Who is Judas? Chafer Theological Seminary published a helpful overview of the life of Judas Iscariot. (By the way, a good friend of mine did an interview with the new president of Chafer – keep our seminaries and Bible colleges in prayer that they hold faithful to the Word of God!)

The Last Supper, ca. 1520, by Giovanni Pietro Rizzoli,

Matthew 26:28 – As you read thru this passage, feel free to underline this verse. Jesus’ blood was shed for remission of our sins.

Psalm 31:24 – Sixteen times in the Old Testament we see “good courage.” What’s the conditions? Hope in the Lord (Psalm 31:24), Wait on the Lord (Psalm 27:14), Finish all the work for the Lord (I Chronics 28:20), fulfill the statutes of the LORD (I Chronicles 22:13),

Proverbs 8:22 – From John MacArthur: “As long as there has been God, there has been wisdom.” While Jehovah’s Witnesses claim this refers to Jesus, Stand to Reason shows why this doesn’t refer to Jesus but just a personification of wisdom.
