If you’re following the schedule, you should read these chapters today: Exodus 11:1–12:21, Luke 14, Job 29, 1 Corinthians 15. Click on any of those references to see all the passages in one long page on BibleGateway. If you can't do all the readings today, read Exodus 12:1-21.
It is interesting, in the providence of God, how our readings today were bookended by the Plague of the Firstborn & Passover in Exodus and the discussion of Christ’s resurrection in 1 Corinthians 15. The Passover pointed forward to Christ. The blood of the Passover lamb applied to the doorway of one’s home caused the plague of death to miss that home; likewise, Christ’s blood, applied by faith to us, exempts us from the wrath of God. It was just after Passover when Christ was betrayed and crucified. In fact, Christ took the “bread made without yeast” (Ex 12:8) and said of it, “This is my body which is for you.” Since we are gathering this evening to observe the Lord’s Supper, we can be grateful for saving grace of Christ that caused God’s wrath to pass over us.
