readers and followers!
you been up to? Did you go to church today?
probably wondering why I'm sharing a post on a Sunday not Monday, RIghT? Though, I will still
share my Monday post tomorrow, however, I was directed by God to share my
Bible Plan with you. I am confident that, it will benefit at least one person.
Below is the
plan (You can re-use the plan over and over again):
4 month Bible Reading Plan - Characters
How to use this
Explain This Bible Reading
Plan: With this plan you will read the highlights about
major characters in the Bible from Adam to Zechariah. This plan makes it easy
to see the story of God's Word as you become acquainted with many important
Characters in the Bible.
What Translation should I use? We recommend reading the New King James Version. You can find it
online in our Bible Study Helps section.
Does the Translation really matter? We believe you can learn the truth of God's word from any legitimate
translation to read the Bible, but beware that some "translations"
are not really translations at all, but are rather Paraphrased. That means
someone read the Bible and wrote it in their own words. Now, at times that may
be helpful, but anywhere the author was mistaken about a passage, you will be
reading the authors opinion, not what the Bible actually says. These types of
"translations" often present themselves as "thought for
thought" translations instead of "word for word", and truly they
belong in the commentary section of your library instead of the translation
section. Some examples of these would be "The Living Bible",
"The Book", "The New World Translation", etc.
Can I print this study plan? Yes! At the bottom of this page are links to printable MS Word and
pdf document files which allow you to keep track of when you read each portion.
Do I need to start January 1st? No, you
need to start today. If you begin today, you will finish 121 days from now.
What if I fall behind? If you fall behind, don't worry -- just pick it back up right away
so as not to fall further behind. Most weeks the reading schedule is not so
rigorous that you couldn't catch up with a little extra reading.
Should I do this alone or with
someone? Many people find it helpful to choose a partner
to help hold them accountable and encourage them in their spiritual life. It
often helps for someone else to know what you are trying to do and ask you
about your progress.
When should I read? We have found it helpful to read the Bible as early in the day as
possible. This will give you the entire day to reflect on what you have read,
it also indicates its importance as we normally do our most important tasks
first. As one Evangelist commonly says, “No Bible, No Breakfast. No Read, No
How is this reading plan
organized? This plan is designed to have you reading some of both
the Old and New Testaments each day.
