Congratulations on your discovery of the World Wide Web version of my Bible Reading Schedule and Summary Outline Charts. This unique format will take you through the entire Bible in a year in paced readings, harmoniously divided according to subject matter. You will read a section from both the Old and New Testaments each day.
Several exciting enhancements have been added to make the online edition even more usable. Clicking on the underlined "OT" & "NT" links in the "OT & NT Scriptures" column, for example, will bring up each day's Old and New Testament readings.
The readings are arranged in chronological order. In the Old Testament, the chronological arrangement is based on the sequence of events. Prophecies are included about the time they are believed to have been given. The books of I & II Samuel, I & II Kings, I & II Chronicles, the Psalms, the Major Prophets, the Minor Prophets, Ezra, Nehemiah, and Esther are all harmonized, with parallel passages clearly marked.
From the beginning of the Divided Kingdom Era and forward, the Schedule generally follows the outline of I & II Kings. Beginning with the readings for August 28, a unique color coding system quickly identifies which passages deal with the Southern Kingdom, the Northern Kingdom, and the Prophets.
In the New Testament, the chronological arrangement is based on the order in which the books are believed to have been written. The Gospels appear in their biblical order. The Pauline Epistles are harmonized with the book of Acts.
Also included are two Summary Outline Charts. These Charts, available for the readings from August 28 on, are designed to help you easily gain a historical overview from the beginning of the Divided Kingdom Era to the time of Malachi. The first Chart covers from the beginning of the Divided Kingdom Era to the time of the Captivities. The second Chart covers from the time of the Captivities to the time of Malachi. By clicking on the "OT Charts" link, you may jump directly to the spot in the appropriate Chart where each day's reading appears.
You will note that the Bible Reading Schedule and the Summary Outline Charts follow the same chronological sequence and use the same color-coding. As you work through the Divided Kingdom Era and forward, you will want to refer frequently to the Summary Outline Charts to see the historical context of the passage you are reading.
I dedicate this Bible Reading Schedule and these Summary Outline Charts only to the Glory of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. It is my earnest hope and prayer that they will be used to the salvation of souls and to the building up of believers in their "most holy faith" (Jude 20-21).
