Read the bible in a year
The Discipleship Journal Bible Reading Plan (shown below) offers special features that will aid you in your journey through the Bible:
1. By reading from four separate places in the Scripture every day you should be able to better grasp the unity of the Scriptures, as well as enjoy the variety of seeing four different viewpoints.
2. To prevent the frustration of falling behind, which most of us tend to do when following a Bible reading plan, each month of this plan gives you only twenty-five readings’. Since you'll have several "free days" each month, you could set aside Sunday to either not read at all or to catch up on any readings you may have missed in the past week.
3. If you finish the month's readings ty the twenty-fifth, you could use the final days of the month to study passages that challenged or intrigued you.
4. If reading through the entire Bible in one year looms as too large of task, you can alter the plan to meet you needs.
A. Read all four columns to read the entire Bible in one year.
B. Read only the 1st column to read the Gospels in one year.
C. Read only the 2nd column to read through the New Testament Epistles in one year.
D. Read only the 1st & 2nd column to read the New Testament in one year.
E. Read only the 3rd column to read the Old Testament Wisdom books in one year.
F. Read only the 4th column to read the Old Testament history books in one year.
G. Read only the 3rd & 4th column to read the Old Testament in one year.
5. As you read the Bible, ask God each day to speak directly to you from the Scripture potions you read. Be expectant, and let your continual exposure to God’s Word reshape your attitudes and behavior as you gain a better understanding of every part of His written testimony to us. Choose a reading partner and hold each other accountable.
