To read the Bible for a year or even less is quite realistic if you stick to a certain plan. But which plan to choose, will it suit you? There are several important points that will actually help you to master the Bible for 1 year (or less). From 365 days of reading you will get the best plans now.

We choose the method

There are several options for reading Bible for the year. The choice of one or the other depends on the goal. For example, newcomers are advised to read all the Scriptures in a row order to have a general idea. This approach is called canonical. At this stage, the main thing is to keep to the rhythm.

It will be easier for you to understand the historical and cultural background of the events of Bible if you read the Scripture in chronological order. For example, the book is read (of Job) after the 11th chapter of Genesis, that is, before the history of Abraham, because Job had lived prior to Abraham. The Psalms of David are intertwined with the 2nd book of Kings, and the Gospels in the New Testament are read in parallel.

The plan for reading Bible for 1 year in chronological orders can be taken

Reading the books of Scripture in a historical order means to take into account the sequence of their writing. In this respect, the order of the Old Testament books is very similar to the Israeli Jewish Bible, beginning with the Law and up to the Prophets. The sequence of the books of New Testament is compiled on the basis of recent historical studies and shows the order of their writing.
