Dear Father in heaven, grant that we may come into your presence as your children. Give to us all that we need each day, so that we are no longer caught in the turmoil of life but can receive your peace. For you care for us as your children, and we are allowed to go confidently through all the troubles of these times because our way leads to you, the eternal Father in heaven. Keep us from going astray and from spending our efforts on what is temporal and cannot last. Let your light strengthen us in what is of heaven, in what is eternally true for our lives. Amen.

By popular request, a printed book version of the full set of summaries is now available on Amazon:
All the summaries are here on the website, and you can get an edited selection of summaries along with lots more background information on each book of the Bible in my @BibleIntro book, but I still have regular emails asking for a hard copy book of all the summaries.
I put the book together using CreateSpace, and I'm really pleased with the end product. It's definitely useful having the whole project in book form on my desk.
Thanks, as always, for your interest in the project!

The Sanhedrin, the highest ruling authority in Rabbinic Judaism, have chosen Rabbi Baruch Kahane to be the next high priest in preparation for the soon rebuilding of the Jewish Temple. Kahane has played a prominent role in all of the various reenactments of Temple offerings to date, the latest of which was the wave offering (Omer) of the barley loaves. Other recent reenactments include the Passover offering and the water libation ceremony.
On Monday the 18th of April (10th of Nisan), the Temple Institute held a re-enactment of a paschal offering, in anticipation of the approaching feast of Passover. While the Temple Institute stress that this is being performed for educational purposes only, as the actual passover sacrifice can only be carried out on the Temple Mount itself, this was a full-dress rehearsal. Kohanim, descendants of the sons of Aaron, carried out the 'offering' on the Mount of Olives beside a make-shift 'altar' directly opposite the Temple Mount area. They were dressed in priestly garments and bearing silver trumpets, manufactured by the Temple Institute in preparation for the soon rebuilding of the Jewish Temple. The event was attended by around 700 people, including several members of the Knesset.
The Temple Institute has begun compiling a list of names of priests (kohanim) who are eligible for carrying out sacrificial offerings in preparation for the rebuilding of the Jewish Temple. Descendants of the sons of Aaron who have kept themselves ritually pure will be able to register. Their ancestry is usually determined by their surname, Levy, Levi or Cohen, but a genetic test was also developed in recent years. The priestly tribe has gathered on the Temple Mount on various occasions over the past few years to recite blessings. The Temple Institute also started a school to train priests on how to carry out various duties in the Temple. The compilation of the list forms the second stage of the Temple Institute's project to 'restore Biblical purity' to the world, the first stage being the commencement of a Red Heifer breeding programme in Israel which was announced last year. The organization hopes that this programme will produce the animals required for ritually cleansing the Temple area and artefacts according to the Old Testament sacrificial system.
Water has begun to emerge from between some of the stones on the Temple Mount. The water can be seen dripping down the stones and pooling on the concrete floor of the synagogue that is located beneath the archway at the Western Wall. A video of the phenomenon appears on the Facebook page of a group called 'News from the Western Wall'. According to the group's page, more than 100 litres has flowed out from between the stones in the last few days, and it appears to be fresh water. The source of the water has not yet been confirmed, but some think it could be a burst pipe, or a cistern behind the rocks within the mountain that is overflowing...
Israeli drilling company Afek has announced the discovery of a huge reservoir in the Golan Heights that contains enough oil to make Israel energy-independent for many years to come. Afek made the announcement after drilling its third well in the territory, and has applied for permission from the government to drill an additional ten wells. The company believes the oil reservoir in the Golan Heights is at least 350 metres thick, around ten times larger than the average oil find anywhere in the world. Afek believe it could yield billions of barrels of oil, but further drilling is required to see if extraction is commercially viable...
