If you missed my post in early January, you may be wondering what’s going on when you check in and find that each day there’s a post on a different book of the Bible. Why am I skipping around? As I read through the Bible in 2011, the plan I’m using designed by Michael Coley (see the right sidebar) varies the daily readings.
Here’s an overview of the plan:
Sunday: Epistles ◊ Romans–Jude
Monday: The Law ◊ Genesis–Deuteronomy
Tuesday: History ◊ Joshua–Esther
Thursday: Poetry ◊ Job–Song of Solomon
Friday: Prophecy ◊ Isaiah–Malachi, Revelation
Saturday: Gospels ◊ Matthew–John, Acts
The beautiful image gives you a visual overview of the Bible: the number of books in the Bible, the length of each book and each chapter, and the thousands of cross reference connections between the books. I want to encourage you to read through the Bible this year so you can have an overview of the content of the Bible, the Word of God.
In Paul’s farewell to the elders at Ephesus, he said,
You cannot know God’s whole counsel if you have only read part of it. Your eyes can delight in this visual overview of the Bible; this year let your mind and heart delight in a word for word overview of the Bible.
