Bible Reading Coach, Week 38 (Daniel & Hosea) A Furnace, a Floating Hand, a Lion’s Den, a Prophet, and a Prostitute

Daniel’s faith is one of the Bible’s great stories. Hosea’s obedience is one of its most heartbreaking – for him, for God, and for anyone who reads it.

What a week of reading this is! As you can tell from the title, there’s a lot going on.

First, we’ll read the last of the Minor Prophets, then we’ll read the first of the Major Prophets. We’ll also read two stories that are as well-known as any in the Bible – the fiery furnace and the lion’s den. Then we’ll read two equally compelling, but lesser-known stories – the handwriting on the wall in Daniel, followed by the prophet (Hosea) who’s asked by God to marry a prostitute, then to buy her back to remarry her!

Everything about this week’s reading is compelling, engaging and has so much to teach us.

The Bible Reading Coach podcast is designed to help anyone read through the Bible in a year. In 10-15 minutes each Friday, I’ll introduce you to the passage for the following week, including:

  • What it’s about
  • How to deal with challenging passages
  • How the original readers saw it
  • How it applies today
  • And much more

After listening, take the next week to read the passage on your own. This time you’ll have a clearer understanding of it.
