Another Bible Reading Plan:

 This plan takes you through the entire  Bible in one year. The scriptures are  divided up into sixteen “chapters” and  organized in semi-chronological order. You’ll read two or three chapters a  day, and sometimes skim through  larger portions that contain genealogies, census information, etc.

 One Psalm is listed each day for you  to slowly pray through, making its  words your own. By the end you’ll have prayed through the book of  Psalms 2.5 times.

John MacArthur’s  Simple Steps to Solid Study — John MacArthur created his own plan early in his ministry. It focuses more on one book of the Bible at a time. Here is what he recommends:

Read through the Old Testament at least once a year. As you read, note in the margins any truths you particularly want to remember, and write down separately anything you do not immediately understand. Often as you read you will find that many questions are answered by the text itself. The questions to which you cannot find answers become the starting points for more in-depth study using commentaries or other reference tools.

Follow a different plan for reading the New Testament. Read one book at a time repetitiously for a month or more. That will help you retain the New Testament so you will not always have to depend on a concordance to find things.

If you want to try that, begin with a short book, such as 1 John, and read it through in one sitting every day for thirty days. At the end of that time, you will know the book. Write on index cards the major theme of each chapter. By referring to the cards as you do your daily reading, you will begin to remember the content of each chapter. In fact, you will develop a perception of the book with your mind’s eye.

When you come to longer books, divide them into short sections and read each section daily for thirty days. For example, the gospel of John contains twenty-one chapters. Divide it into three sections of seven chapters. At the end of ninety days, you will finish John. For variety, alternate short and long books, and in less than three years you will have finished the entire New Testament–and you will really know it!….Continue HERE!
