Honor 'father and mother' with lectionary historical--Get out your Ussher and...


It's a new year, or rather Celebration Of Resurrection Anno Mundi! (CORAM--word play intended).

This is an outline of a way to learn history.

When we take Ussher's Annals of the World (free online at Preterist Archive), and divide it by 49 (books in JBJ's 'Rethinking the Order of the Old Testament,' we get @ 81 years per week.

We don't do it for holiday weeks, such as Public Vindication--only ordinary weeks.

[There are 31 extra years in Week 25, for Father Abraham, and JBJ has indicated a delay of 80 years might be near the end].

GO FORWARD AND BACKWARD. In other words, this week we do both the first 81 years, and the last 81 + 80 years.

Second part is the use of something such as 'The 100 Most Important Events in Church History'.

One could do @ 40 years per week. 2013 minus 70 is 1943 years, divided by 49.  Put the extras in with Week 25, as was done above?

Do a couple a week, forwards and backwards, for each of the 49 weeks.  That's 98.  Give Father Abraham 2 more, making 100.

This week, then, it's The Fire in Rome, A. D. 64 and Titus Destroys Jerusalem, A. D. 70 going forward. Going backward in's '1966-1976 Chinese Church Grows Despite Cultural Revolution, and 1963 Martin Luther King, Jr. Leads March on Washington.

You see that this book needs updating.  Wat are imortan events since 1976, one could ask?

This Lectionary Historical is in obedience to the Fifth Word.  It's a way of honoring 'father and mother,' in this case 'history'.  There are many outshining of father and mother.

Love in King Jesus,
