How do we want to read the Bible?

In an attempt to read the Bible in a year (little behind), we can read:

Beginning to End: Read the Bible from start to finish, from Genesis to Revelation.

Chronological: Read the Bible as its events occurred in real time. For example, Job lived sometime after the beginning of creation (Genesis 1) but before Abraham was born (Genesis 12). As a result, the Book of Job is integrated into the Book of Genesis.

Historical: Read the books of the Bible as they were written historically, according to the estimated date of their writing.

New then Old: Read through the New Testament first, then read through the Old Testament.

Old and New: Each day includes a passage from both the Old Testament and New Testament.

    I just found out you don’t need to buy a Bible- you can read it on line if you want. Go to “Read the Bible in One Year” It lists what to read each day and also let’s you click and read on line.

    I don’t know if we want to read that quickly but I like the idea of New than Old so I say let’s start with the 4 Gospels- Matthew first.
