Thank you – 42
Another week, so I finished another book of a minor prophet, Habakkuk. 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 less of the biblical books. So far, I have posted 7,220 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, 1 Maccabees, and 2 Maccabees. I have also finished the so-called wisdom literature books, the books of Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Solomon, the Book of Wisdom of Solomon, Ecclesiasticus or Sirach, and Daniel. I have finished the Major Prophets, Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Ezekiel, plus Lamentations and Baruch. Now I just finished the eighth of the Twelve Minor Prophets, Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, Micah, Nahum, and Habakkuk. This makes the first 42 books of the Bible that are now complete with a commentary for each paragraph. It has taken me over four years to get this done.
