Read Through the Bible in a Year (with Commentary)

We will begin our plan to read through the Bible in a year with Genesis chapters one through five.

For the rest of this week:

Tuesday, Jan. 3: chapters 6 to 11
Wednesday, Jan. 4: chapters 12 to 15
Thursday, Jan. 5: chapters 16 to 20
Friday, Jan. 6: chapters 21 to 24:10 (ch. 24, v. 10)

The general plan, after that, is as follows. I’ll give you the exact chapters at the start of each week.

Jan. 9-13: Finish Genesis
Jan. 16-20: Read the whole Gospel of Matthew
Jan. 23-27: First half of Exodus
Jan. 30-Feb. 3: Finish Exodus
Feb. 6-10: Leviticus
Feb. 13-15: Mark (and probably another small book)
Feb. 20-24: Start Numbers
Feb. 27-Mar. 2: Finish Numbers
Mar. 5-9: Start Deuteronomy
Mar. 12-16: Finish Deuteronomy (and probably another small book)
Mar. 19-23: Luke
Mar. 26-30: Acts

I do have a goal of never leaving a book unfinished on a Friday. We want to treat these as individual books, the record of God’s people, not as one whole book. The Bible is not a book; it is a very small library.

About Paul Pavao

I am married, the father of six, and currently the grandfather of two. I run a business, live in a Christian community, teach, and I am learning to disciple others better than I have ever been able to before. I believe God has gifted me to restore proper foundations to the Christian faith. In order to ensure that I do not become a heretic, I read the early church fathers from the second and third centuries. They were around when all the churches founded by the apostles were in unity. I also try to stay honest and open. I argue and discuss these foundational doctrines with others to make sure my teaching really lines up with Scripture. I am encouraged by the fact that the several missionaries and pastors that I know well and admire as holy men love the things I teach. I hope you will be encouraged too. I am indeed tearing up old foundations created by tradition in order to re-establish the foundations found in Scripture and lived on by the churches during their 300 years of unity.
