A Yearly Bible Reading Plan - Daily Blog 072

2년 전


Reading the Bible is a year is a popular method to get through its entirety. However, the readings can be short, and as a follower of Jesus, the reader needs more time in this fantastic book. At the time of writing, I read the Bible through twice.

The first time took about eight months, and I used no specific plan. I just started in the New Testament and then moved into the Old Testament covering about five chapters a day. The second time it took me about five months which pins the daily reading to about twelve chapters each day.

Each time I go back to reread the Bible I refine how I go about doing so. As I said, the first time was straight through starting at the New Testament. This past reading was the Old, and New Testaments mixed together. Reading them together was great because the reader gets to see both sides of the history of salvation.

This year is the same but with the New Testament getting read once every quarter year (or four times a year). I chose to do this because most Bible plans that take the reader through the entire book in a year-end up only giving us one chapter each day in the New Testament. We need more than one chapter a day and something as small as three chapters a day will get us rereading the New Testament about four times each year.

I need to get back into reading Scripture on a regular basis.

Some of the best commentary I've read is by Scott Hahn and Jeff Cavins. Both do a tremendous job of showing how the Old Testament and the New Testament complement one another.
