Bible Reading And Tips With Michael Furlonger
This year I decided that I’m going to read the Bible in one year. I’ve done this before with different devotional Bibles and “plans” sent to me through social media.
Let me start out with explaining how I am aiming to read the bible in one year. I aim to read 5 chapters a day in order (Genesis 1-5, 6-10, etc) and one Psalm (Psalm 1, 2, etc) and one chapter of Solomon’s book (Proverbs 1,2,3 all the way up to Songs of Solomon). I started on January 1 and, although I missed a couple of days, I’m now in 2 Kings.
What I’m trying to do this year is go through it with a highlighter (I hate highlighting my Bible though) and try to highlight key portions, verses, God speaking directly to people, etc. It’s great as I feel like I’m learning and understanding so much.
In Comes The Books Of The Kings.
So I’m reading about one king of Israel, who was the king during this king of Judah. But because this king of Judah lived longer, there is another king of Israel. Then the king of Judah dies while this king of Israel is still king. Then, a prophecy from Jeremiah or Jonah pops its head up and now I have to go over to that book and make a note.
It’s so hard. But, if you’re looking to get a better understanding of God and his work, I’d highly encourage this process.
I also have my Old Testament Surveys book out from college to give me an overview of what is going on.
If you are looking to do some reading, perhaps go through the whole Bible in a year, I’m putting some Chronological Bibles below. One is an NIV translation (New International Version), one is an NLT (New Living Translation) and the other an NKJV (New King James Version).
