Reading the Old Testament – Part 3

{Part One}
{Part Two}

old testamentIn my last couple posts I talked about things to do and not to do when reading the Old Testament. Since we are now ready to get started, lets go over some Bible reading plans that can help us focus our readings for a successful outcome.

Here are some of the most common:

  • Old and New Testament in 365 days – daily readings from both the OT and the NT
  • Chronological in 365 days
  • The Bible in 90 Days

  • Book Order – reading from Genesis 1 to Revelation 22 in the order in which the books of the Bible are arranged.
  • Chronological – read the Bible in the order that the events happened.
  • Classic – read 3 passages each day, starting with Genesis, Psalms, and Luke
  • Ninety-Day Challenge – Read the Bible all the way through in only 90 days)
  • Stay-on-track Plan – Specifically designed to help readers stay on track. There are readings only scheduled on week days, with weekends left free to catch up or get ahead.
  • Thematic – the goal here is to make as many associations as possible between the different parts of Scripture while still reading individual books for the Bible from start to finish.
  • Prof. Horner’s Reading System  – A unique system where you read 10 chapters a day
    • This is actually the plan on which my current plan is based!

I got these lists by googling “Bible Reading Plans” and clicking on the first two results, which took about thirty seconds. There are many other plans available so if none of these sound good to you, take time to do some research. Look online or talk with your friends and find out what works for them.  Finding a plan you enjoy is key to faithful and complete Bible reading.

Are you using a plan? If yes, what is it? What do you like/dislike about it?
