Thank you – 20

Thank you – 20


I just finished blogging the book of 1 Maccabees. Every time I finish a book of the Bible, I send a thank you blog. I usually post five blogs a day covering about a chapter or two of one of the biblical books. So far I have posted 2,570 blogs about the individual paragraphs of the first five books of the Torah, Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy, as well as the so-called historical books of Joshua, Judges, Ruth, 1 Samuel and 2 Samuel, 1 Kings and 2 Kings, 1 Chronicles and 2 Chronicles, Ezra and Nehemiah, Tobit, Judith, Esther, and now 1 Maccabees. This makes the first 20 books of the Bible that are now complete with a commentary for each paragraph. It has taken me nearly two years to get this done.


About a couple of hundred people have emailed me that they are following this project in some form or another. I do not think that I know any of you personally. 96 people receive an email subscription every day. About 10-20 people look at this site every day, but it has reached as high as 363 people on January 19, 2015, which was also the best week with 554 people that week. The best month was February, 2015 with 1,364 people. Last month, April 2015, only 248 people visited this site. There have been over 6,351 hits on this blog since its inception. I just want to thank all of you.


I realized that 168 of you have left comments, but I have not responded to them. There have been over 6,138 spam comments. Some of you might want to moderate my comments, which is fine with me. If you want to contact me directly, my email is
