- Let's get started!!
Read Zechariah 9-14, then Pray Psalm 62. Palm Sunday is predicted in Zechariah 9:9, but take note of the following passages as well. Note how Palm Sunday is followed by the reign of the King! That is NOW…and it is also NOT YET. When Jesus returns, He will complete every aspect of these words (especially chapter 14!).
Read Malachi 1-2, then Pray Psalm 63. Take note that all of this is ultimately about the hearts of people!
Read Malachi 3-4, then Pray Psalm 64. Always read Malachi 3 together with 2 Corinthians 9:6-11.
CHAPTER 13 – THE STORY SO FAR
Skim 1 Chronicles 1-10, then Pray Psalm 65. As you skim the names, take of how Matthew and Luke begin their writings. They knew Chronicles were the final books of the Old Testament, and by the power of the Spirit, they are very much on purpose hoping that Bible readers would see them as continuing the story!
Skim 1 Chronicles 11-17, then Pray Psalm 66. Chapter 16 contains several Psalms, including passages from 105, 96, and 106. This chapter is a special moment when we get to see the people Praising God in the Assembly! (Remember, Assembly = Church).
Skim 1 Chronicles 18-24, then Pray Psalm 67. In chapter 22, the preparations are made for the temple. But even here the focus is on “a son who will be a man of peace and rest” which is a strong reminder of the Messiah.
Skim 1 Chronicles 25-29, then Pray Psalm 68. Remember that chapter 29 is not the “end” of the first book, but rather where they ran out of scroll. The story continues the relentless push to remind the reader that David is the “type” which points to the archetype, namely Jesus. The chronicler wants us to know that those other sons of David were not THE SON, who is yet to come from his perspective.
