Bible in a Year:
Week of August 10th

Many people have simply never read the Bible from cover to cover; and yet many people have many opinions about what is there. The first time I read it through the actual scope and flow of the Word became apparent - the underlying plan and its unfolding. If you haven't done, or want to do it again, or would just like to see what the stupid thing says - join me (us) for the next year.

Please bring your own resources, ideas, commentaries to the mix. This is intended as a daily reading; but also as a daily Bible study.

8/10: Isaiah 66:1-Jeremiah 3:5; D: Esther A (insert before Esther 1), Esther B (insert between Esther 3:13 and 14)

8/11: Jeremiah 3:6-5:31; D: Esther C (insert after Esther 4:17), Esther D (replaces Esther 5:1-2)

8/12: Jeremiah 6:1-8:3; D: Esther E (insert between Esther 8:12 and 13), Esther F (insert after Esther 10:3)

8/13: Jeremiah 8:4-11:17; D: 1 Maccabees 1

8/14: Jeremiah 11:18-15:21; D: 1 Maccabees 1

8/15: Jeremiah 16:1-19:15; D: 1 Maccabees 1

8/16: Jeremiah 20:1-23:32; D: 1 Maccabees 2

Things to look for each day:

  1. Lessons to be learned
  2. Examples to be followed
  3. Promises to be enjoyed
  4. Jesus to be revealed
A good journaling question: How will I be different today because of what I have just read?

Next Week: Week of August 17th
