April 18 – Zacchaeus, and the other John Newton hymn! — VCY America

April 18
Joshua 16:1-18:28
Luke 19:1-27
Psalm 87:1-7
Proverbs 13:11

Joshua 17:16, 18 – Similar to Judges 1:19. Charles Spurgeon preached a great message on Chariots of Iron.

Modern Khirbet Seilun, a tell or archaeological mound, dubbed in Modern Hebrew Tel Shiloh

Joshua 18:1 – The tabernacle setup at Shiloh. In 1 Samuel 1:3, the tabernacle is still at Shiloh during the time of Samuel. Jeremiah tells that it was the first place where God set His name (Jeremiah 7:12).

Luke 19:10 – From Earl Martin

Luke 19:2 – Zacchaeus‘ story is only found in Luke.

Here’s a video of the story: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bkd-QFD7vMA

A pastor shared with me a simple outline for preaching on this passage:

  • Jesus sees me (Luke 19:5)
  • Jesus knows me (Luke 19:5)
  • Jesus saves me (Luke 19:9)

Luke 19:13 – Occupy till I come. How are you doing occupying? Or are you burying your talent?

Psalm 87:2,3,5 – If you have never been to Jerusalem or the Holy Land – make plans to go! You’ll never read the Bible the same way again! John Newton, author of the hymn Amazing Grace, used Psalm 87:3 to inspire the hymn Glorious Things of Thee are Spoken. Instead of an English rendition, here’s a Korean rendition so you can see the worldwide impact of Godly music.


Proverbs 13:11 – Diligence is a virtue. Proverbs 6:6-8, 10:4, 12:24, 13:4, and 21:5, emphasize this. As does Galatians 6:9, James 1:12, Ecclesiastes 9:10, and Philippians 3:14.
