Introduction

The annual cycle of these meditations about Jesus begins with about three weeks of reflection on the inspired Jewish scriptures, summarizing very briefly God’s dealings with men before the time of Jesus.

Then, there are the meditations about Jesus himself, beginning with an introduction based on that written by his beloved friend, John.  The daily meditations on the life & ministry ofJesus continue for about seven months; they are presented as a paraphrased chronological harmony of the four gospels.

Next, for about four months, is a paraphrased chronological history of the early church, harmonized with summaries of letters written by early Christian leaders.

The annual cycle concludes with about two weeks of meditations on the church of Jesus since the events described in the inspired scriptures.  Thereafter, the cycle repeats annually.

The central message of Jesus is simply this: Love & serve God by loving & serving people, even your enemies.  Insofar as they convey that message, these meditations may be helpful as an introduction to the complete texts of the Bible, or for daily devotional reading.

Meditations related to special seasons of the Christian year may be found by using the following links:

  • Birth of Jesus: Meditations begin here and continue for 9 days.
  • Crucifixion of Jesus: Meditations begin here and continue for 14 days
  • Resurrection of Jesus: Meditations begin here and continue for 6 days.
  • Ascension of Jesus: Meditations begin here and continue for 5 days.
  • Coming of the Holy Spirit: Meditations begin here and continue for 4 days.

You can start this annual cycle of daily meditations on any day you choose,  The readings take about 2-4 minutes every day.  If you like, you can listen to a 2-4 minute audio narration of each reading.

Then, it usually helps to think or pray about what you’ve read, as you have time during your day.
