Walk Through Scripture

 

Week of May 20-26

Bible Reading

This week we enter the reign of Solomon in the Bible’s grand story as we approach the end of Act 2, Scene 5. Read this section in light of both God’s role as the main actor and his faithfulness to his covenant with David. Note again the transitional elements in the story, observing how they establish Solomon’s rule as king. Notice especially the key role wisdom plays in the narrative. We will also read poetic literature on four of six days this week. Psalms 111-119 are somewhat unique, so pick up on the special place these psalms had in ancient Judaism. Song of Songs should be read as love poetry; be sure to note the keys to reading it. […] The song should be read for what it is: a celebration of God’s gift of romantic love.1

Monday: Psalms 111-118

Tuesday: 1 Kings 1-2, Psalms 37; 71; 94

Wednesday: Psalms 119:1-88

Thursday: 1 Kings 3-4, 2 Chronicles 1, Psalm 72
