Reading the Bible

While I do not recommend to anyone a multi-year hiatus from reading the Bible for yourself, I will say that the lack of familiarity when I came back to it has been eye-opening. Many things I remember and knew already and yet other things I see as if I had never seen them before.

I notice, in reading four chapters at a time and each day, that some things repeat (in the 4 chapters or within a book or within the two books) and others I see and say, “Wow. I didn’t know that.”

While it is not that important, I did not know that Barnabas (son of encouragement) was a Levite from Cyprus named Joseph. But according to Acts 4:36, that is exactly who he was.
