Today´s reading:
OT: Genesis 28-29
NT: Matthew 9:18-38
Ps: Psalm 11
Pr: Proverbs 3:11-12

Gospel Thread - OT:

11 When he reached a certain place, he stopped for the night because the sun had set. Taking one of the stones there, he put it under his head and lay down to sleep. 12 He had a dream in which he saw a stairway resting on the earth, with its top reaching to heaven, and the angels of God were ascending and descending on it.

Genesis 28:11-12 (NIV)

This dream has messianic undertones. Bereans Online explains:

Y’shua is pictured in Jacob’s dream by the imagery of the Ladder and the anointed Stone. He is the Place. He is the means of descending and ascending. He descended, and has ascended. He will descend again that we might ascend into the Presence of HaShem.

Jacob then extends the imagery by setting up the stone upon a pillar, and anointing it with oil (Messiah or Christ come from Annointed One).

Gospel Thread - NT:

Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness.

Matthew 9:35 (NIV)

Today's passage represents more fulfillment of prophecy that the Messiah would heal the sick and blind (see Isaiah 53:4 and Isaiah 35:5).

Gospel Thread - Psalms/Proverbs:

No direct gospel/messianic references in today’s Psalms/Proverbs reading.
