The month of August has quite a few events. Lots of people to write about and read about, in particular many great people and events during the time of Jesus Christm on Earth in the New Testament. Here are the biblical people and events for August:
- Saturday, August 6th- The Transfiguration; Jesus revealed His full glory to Peter , James and John and many Old Testament people were present
- Sunday, August 14th- The anniversary of the Destruction of both the First and Second Temples (destroyed on the same day of different years)
- Monday, August 29th- Death of John the Baptist (by beheading)
- Wednesday, August 31st- Joseph of Arimathea , Nicodemus
There are several articles here that either do not exist or need great expansion. This would be a great opportunity to do that as it would be relevant around their holiday. Maybe you don't know about these people or events- their holiday is one of the best times to refresh and learn about their accounts and how they made an impact on history. Whether its reading, writing or both we hope you take this opportunity using our Liturgical Calendar to further immerse yourself in history, that provides so many examples to us today.
