|The Bible in Chronological Event Time|
|January||[Finally finished every book of the Bible at least once!]|
|February-June||Genesis 1-11||Job||Genesis 12-50||Romans|
|July-August||Gospel of Mark||(Attributes of Jesus Christ)||(Principles)|
This time, I am going to attempt the Old Testament in chronological order, with some NT books thrown in for balance. There is a plan that sequences the Bible as such, and it is interesting to note the interspersed books of 1 & 2 Samuel, 1 & 2 Chronicles, and the Psalms, being about King David / written by King David. As you can see, that whole complex configuration will be added here at a later time. For now, it’s not too ambitious.
|May||Ezekiel||2 Cor||1 Thess|
The target is to finish the Old Testament books that I have yet to read plus Revelations; after this, I’ll have read the whole Bible (finally).
|Jan||Joshua||Psalms (cont.)||Revelation (sermon)|
This is a little more than the Fall plan, but not overly burdensome. I may change March/April. The target is to finish the New Testament and the books left over from the Summer Plan. (Revelation marks the last of the NT books I need to read to be sure I’ve read them all in their entirety, while Ezekiel marks the last of the Summer plan.) Fortunately, my church’s sermon series starting January 2011 is on Revelation! I don’t even need to read it as a puzzled citizen.
Here is the current series: http://wlachurch.org/index.cfm?i=11621&mid=18&g=25284
Here is the past Revelation series (which I have not heard): http://wlachurch.org/index.cfm?i=11621&mid=18&g=33680
|Oct||Jude||A Gospel (Luke)|
|Dec||Zephaniah||Thessalonians 1 & 2|
This is a more modest approach than the summer’s. Less quantity; more depth.
|June||30–5||1 Chronicles||2 Kings|
|11–17||Song of Solomon||Hebrews|
I have tried to pair old testament with new testament, short books with long, and prose/narrative with verse, while keeping some points of logical progression. (Note for example that 2 Chronicles, which contains the last ‘events’ of the OT times, is followed by Mark, which is a gospel of Jesus Christ, though not one with many pre-birth events.)
