Today’s scripture reading is Matthew 2:13-23


Just so that you are not confused, it’s important to know that there are a few Herods during, just before, and after the time of Jesus. You can read an overview of that here, here, and here.

Where previous did Joseph receive a message through a dream?

Read Hosea 11:1

Read Jeremiah 31:15

Nazareth was not known for wealth or people of high public stature.

Read Isaiah 11:1

What does a stem imply? What does a shoot growing from root stock imply?

Does this mean coming from an established house of wealth or poverty?

Read Isaiah 53:2

Does this imply the same?

Does this imply physical beauty?

Read Judges 13-16

Samson was a Nazarite from birth. How does his story foreshadow that of Jesus’?

How are they different?


We have paired today’s scripture with Sacred City‘s soulful version of God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen

This daily devotional is simple.

We post a scripture passage to read. We provide a link if you do not have a bible to read it on the web. If you are not fond of the version used, you can easily change to the version or translation you prefer.

We then post questions about the text you just read.

We do not have an answer key for the questions, the answer is found in your relationship with God.

With the scripture, we have a link to an independent Christian music artist and their song. Maybe the song is a cover of a well known worship song, maybe the song is an original, and sometimes the recording isn’t what you would find from a high end studio, but we believe there is something of value in the recording.

However you come about this devotional, we pray that your relationship is strengthened with God and that you grow in grace, love and truth.

Tell us why you like it!
