Scripture of the Day: Early Church and Bible Reading

Nehemiah 8:7-8 HCSB
Jeshua, Bani, Sherebiah, Jamin, Akkub, Shabbethai, Hodiah, Maaseiah, Kelita, Azariah, Jozabad, Hanan, and Pelaiah, who were Levites, explained the law to the people as they stood in their places. 8 They read the book of the law of God, translating and giving the meaning so that the people could understand what was read.

    Any significance to the fact that there are 12 Levites, plus Jeshua?

  2. 2 Scripture Zealot

    Hi Mike. Good question. I have no idea. Never even occurred to me. Maybe someone else will know, but I haven’t been getting many comments lately. Thanks for stopping by and replying.
