Read the Bible Through. . .Chronologically

If you’re like me, sometimes reading the Bible through from Genesis to Revelation can be a bit confusing. . . if you try to follow it the way it happened historically. There are instances that we read about in the prophets that we read way back in 1 Kings. Or, there are events King David writes about in the Psalms that we read about in 2 Samuel. Historically, things are a bit out of order. This is intentional of course, but can be a bit frustrating if you are wanting to follow things historically, as they happened, according to the dates in which they happened. Make sense?

If you are interested in reading the Bible chronologically, there is a plan to read through the entire Bible – as it occurred historically (by date) in a year.

The ESV Study Bible has a plan you can link to and/or print here.

In addition, as a compliment to George Guthrie’s Read the Bible for Life (this is the book men in ‘The League’ are reading through on Thursday morning’s at WBC), Guthrie has also published a work/Bible to help one walk through the Bible chronologically. It is called Reading God’s Story: A Chronological Daily Bible.
