READ THE ENTIRE BIBLE
Two Year Plan
We recommend following this plan after reading through the
entire Bible at least once (See our
Reading Plan #3 for a couple of good first time reading plans).
After you’ve read thru the entire Bible and have a good working
knowledge, we recommend shifting the emphasis of your reading to the New
Testament. The Old Testament was primarily written to Israel while
the NT was written to the Church (Christians). This is not to say
that the OT is not as important as the NT. You must have a working knowledge
of the OT to properly understand the NT. As St Augustine said,
"The New Testament is concealed in the Old, and the Old Testament is
revealed in the New".
This plan is similar to our 365
Day Plan except, over a two year period, you’ll cover the entire Old
Testament once, and the New Testament plus the OT books of Psalms and
Proverbs twice. Since this takes less time per day as the one year
plan, we suggest that you supplement your readings with
a few selections from our Advanced
Reading Plans. Another option is to complete two readings a
day, in which case you’d finish the plan in one year.
