I’m starting a project to read the whole Bible in one year. Here is the math:
- 5 days a week (Mon. through Fri.) for 52 weeks is 260 days.
- 1 chapter per day from the New Testament (260 chapters)
- 4 chapters/day from the Old Testament, except 5 chapters/day for Psalms and Wisdom (1074 chapters).
Why read only on weekdays? So that, if you fall behind in the readings, you can catch-up on the week-ends.
Read whichever version you prefer. Some versions have slightly different numbering of chapters and verses. All have 260 chapters in the NT. The OT numbering varies somewhat more.
I’ll be starting this reading program on Monday, March 16th, 2015. I’m not going to do any kind of daily or even weekly Scripture commentary. It’s a suggestion for each person’s own personal devotion.
