"The Greatest Book" Club Begins
This week begins the New Testament reading Challenge. We will of course start with Matthew 1, and this week read up to and include Mark 1. Matthew seems to be chronicling (is that a word and is it spelled right) all of the events of Jesus’ birth along with the Prophesies in the Old Testament. It will be cool to read this all in order, especially the 4 Gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. We will be able to compare the four and learn more about the life of our Precious Savior.
I did pick a verse for us to Memorize this week if you would like.
Remember also that if you like to read online more than from a book, you can check out Blueletterbible.org and there are many others.
Here is the schedule for the whole reading:
Week 1- Matthew 1- Mark 1
Week 2- Mark 2- Luke 14
Week 3- Luke 15- John 19
Week 4- John 20-Acts 27
Week 5- Acts 28- I Corinthians 12
Week 6- I Corinthians 13-Philippians 1
Week 7- Philippians 2-Hebrews 1
Week 8- Hebrews 2- I John 1
Week 9- I John 2- Revelations 22
I pray that you are all able to get through this reading this Summer. There is even a promise in Revelation for those who read that entire book. See if you can find it and be blessed. Although, I know that just from reading daily you will be blessed. Also, if you just aren’t getting anything out of it for even a full week, press on, you will be rewarded for your perseverance.
