A NEW WAY TO DO DAILY DEVOTIONALS AND BECOME CLOSER TO JESUS THAN EVER BEFORE.
After the destruction of the first Temple in Jerusalem, the
Jews were exiled to Babylon. Not only was there no longer
a physical place to pray, the Torah scrolls were lost or
destroyed leaving the Jews of exile without their teachings.
Out of this predicament came a systematic cycle of
reading the Scriptures that is still in existence today. The
rabbis divided up the biblical texts into weekly reading
portions and distributed them among the families of Israel.
Each and every week, as people gathered in the synagogue,
the family in charge of that week’s portion of the Scripture
would get up, recite the passage, and then teach the people.
This system of reading is the basis for the story found in Luke 4:16-17:
“He went to
Nazareth, where He had been brought up, and on the Sabbath day He went into the
synagogue, as was His custom. And He stood up to read. The scroll of the prophet Isaiah
was handed to Him.”
