In 2022, we’re sharing a monthly Bible reading plan that will help us grow and understand how the genres in the Bible work together in the overarching narrative of the Bible. Each month, we will read the Bible together in genres, including Law, History, Poetry/Wisdom, Minor Prophets, Major Prophets, Gospels, Acts, Paul’s Letters to the Churches, General Letters, and Prophecy.
We decided to read the Bible in these divisions because we want to renew our biblical literacy—a term that simply means that we want to know more about the Bible as a whole. Sometimes when we read a verse here and a verse there out of its context, we forget the overarching narrative of the Bible. We forget how one verse fits into the themes of its chapter, its book, its testament, and God’s story as a whole. We’re confused by what the passage says. We apply a verse incorrectly because we fail to look at the context in which it was written.
On the third Friday of each month, we’ll post the reading plan for the upcoming month. To download the monthly reading plans, click below.
