Today’s Scripture Reading And A Little Note

Today’s Scripture readings are:

Isaiah 4:2-5:7
Genesis 3:21-4:7
Proverbs 3:34-4:22

It hit me last night as I was falling asleep, as things will sometimes do, that I hadn’t explained why the readings are mostly from the Old Testament for a good portion of Lent.  The reason is actually quite simple:  Because the readings show how the knowledge of Christ’s coming was foretold in the Tanakh, which is the collection of the Hebrew writings used prior to Christ’s ascension and the collection of the writings we now call the New Testament of the Church.
