2017 Bible Reading Plan
This year’s Bible reading plan will have the purpose of recounting the Bible’s story line. The goal is not to read through the entire Bible. Instead, we’ll focus on tracing the events of God’s eternal plan from Creation all the way through to Christ, the church, and the ultimate hope of heaven.
We’ll use the framework of the twelve calendar months and the four weeks in each of those months as the basis for our schedule. The “extra” days in each month (that is, those beyond 28–each month will have 2 or 3, except February) we’ll use for additional readings related to that month’s portion of the story line.
The Bible reading schedule will also contain some explanatory notes, tying the story line together and telling some about each of the books and their role in the account. Again, we will not be reading the entire Bible (though we will be reading the entire New Testament) but at least a sample reading from each book will be included in the reading schedule.
The reading schedule will be published daily and made available online. At the beginning of each month a month’s overview will be provided as well as weekly overviews at the beginning of each week.
Also, readings will be scheduled for 6 days of each week. The seventh day can be used to get caught up or do additional readings if you may have chosen to read through the entire Bible in the year.
