Thank you – 46
After less than a week, I have finished last book of the Old Testament, the minor prophet Malachi. 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 7,440 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 twelfth of the Twelve Minor Prophets, Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi. This makes 46 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.
