Read the Bible In a Year

Ever thought about reading the entire Bible? It’s difficult to do if you attempt it in one sitting, but easy to do if you spread it out over a year. The 1,189 chapters of the Bible can be read in a year at a rate of 3¼ chapters per day. This Bible study plan uses the English translations made available at Bible Gateway.com.

The organization of this Plan:

There are 929 chapters from the Old Testament and 260 chapters from the New Testament, so please expect to read more from the Old Testament than the New. The first month is devoted to Genesis and Exodus. The last month is largely devoted to the prophetic books of Daniel and Revelation. You will read from the Psalms every tenth day. The New Testament starts in the second month, and generally there will be one NT chapter per day.

Read the Bible In a Year — 10 Comments

  1. “There is nothing more calculated to strengthen the intellect than the study of the Scriptures. No other book is so potent to elevate the thoughts, to give vigor to the faculties, as the broad, ennobling truths of the Bible. If God's word were studied as it should be, men would have a breadth of mind, a nobility of character, and a stability of purpose rarely seen in these times. But there is but little benefit derived from a hasty reading of the Scriptures. One may read the whole Bible through and yet fail to see its beauty or comprehend its deep and hidden meaning. One passage studied until its significance is clear to the mind and its relation to the plan of salvation is evident, is of more value than the perusal of many chapters with no definite purpose in view and no positive instruction gained. Keep your Bible with you. As you have opportunity, read it; fix the texts in your memory. Even while you are walking the streets you may read a passage and meditate upon it, thus fixing it in the mind.” (Steps to Christ 90.2)

    • Thanks for this quote. I have been reading Psalms for years. It seems to be what I need to maintain equilibrium but sometimes I feel like I'm neglecting the rest of the bible. Thanks again for this quote.

    • Yes this may be true, but by reading the bible you find scriptures that you may have missed if you did not read the whole bible. You need to read and study not just read. You need to sit at the table and make a meal of it, not fast food.

  2. Indeed I am one of those who is being blessed by the Daily Bible Reading program. I don't believe that if one seriously and meditatorily open the bible in the right frame of mind, sincerely willing to understand, inviting the Holy Spirit who inspired its writing,jotting down important revealed points,can fail to understand. It is true that if it is opened just like any other text book, hurriedly and when the mind is not ready,without a heartfelt prayer, no understanding. Students set themselves targets to complete text books that matter to their exam. If heaven matters to me, seriously I can set myself a target to complete the ONLY "BOOK" that can reveal God's will for me in preparation for that.
    Through this program, I can summarise important events in ALL the books I have covered. At our Church, we take turns to summarise each book covered, and the whole church makes inputs.It is working wonders.

    • You can read the Bible in a year by following the plan we have provided.

      However, Bible reading will do you no good without asking the Holy Spirit to give you understanding.

      So, before you begin reading, ask the Holy Spirit to give you understanding and insight.

      It is better to stop and meditate on a passage that is meaningful to you than to read the Bible through in a year. If it takes three years to read through the Bible, that's fine too
