This week's readings will conclude Ezekiel's prophecy in the Old Testament and will continue going through the Psalms sequentially. The New Testament readings in Acts will cover the period from Stephen's stoning and the dispersal of the church in Jerusalem to the eve of the First Missionary Journey. Included in this period is conversion of Paul on the road to Damascus in chapter 9 and the "Pentecost of the Gentiles" in chapter 10.
The New Testament readings will begin in Acts. Acts is essentially volume 2 of the two-part history of the church that was started with Luke's Gospel. Luke, a close ministry associate of the Apostle Paul, wrote to give an individual names Theophilus a comprehensive account of the Christian faith.
This week's readings continue in Ezekiel and conclude Luke's Gospel. The Psalm readings this week will transition to going through the Psalms sequentially.
