Bible in a Year

I’ve read straight through the Bible more than a dozen times. As it’s been a while, I decided to read through it again in 2022. It’s not a huge task, a few chapters a day, unless you get behind. It’s important to read the Scriptures as a whole because being familiar with the Old Testament and its prophecies gives you a more complete understanding of the significance of Jesus’ life, death and resurrection recorded in the New Testament. Without being familiar with God’s promises to Abraham, Jacob, David and many others, we may not be aware they were fulfilled in Christ. And, how could we understand the need for Christ’s sacrifice without knowing the limitations of the sacrificial system of the Old Covenant. “For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope” (Romans 15:4, NIV).
