Chronological

This past week, I started leading a women's discipleship group that is part of Tara Leigh Cobble's network of groups. We are reading through the Gospels chronologically, which I have never done before, but I am loving! It is such a great way to study the Bible.

If you are someone new to reading God's word, I highly recommend starting here and reading this way. Here's the daily reading list (it takes 6 weeks):

Week 1
Day 1 - Luke 1, John 1
Day 2 - Matthew 1, Luke 2
Day 3 - Matthew 2
Day 4 - Matthew 3, Mark 1, Luke 3
Day 5 - Matthew 4, Luke 4, Luke 5
Day 6 - John 2, John 3, John 4
Day 7 - Matthew 8, Mark 2, John 5

Week 2
Day 1 - Matthew 12, Mark 3, Luke 6
Day 2 - Matthew 5, Matthew 6, Matthew 7
Day 3 - Matthew 9, Luke 7
Day 4 - Matthew 11, Luke 11
Day 5 - Matthew 13, Luke 8
Day 6 - Mark 4, Mark 5
Day 7 - Matthew 10

Week 3
Day 1 - Matthew 14, Mark 6, Luke 9
Day 2 - John 6
Day 3 - Matthew 15, Mark 7
Day 4 - Matthew 16, Mark 8
Day 5 - Matthew 17, Mark 9
Day 6 - Matthew 18
Day 7 - John 7, John 8

Week 4
Day 1 - John 9, John 10
Day 2 - Luke 10
Day 3 - Luke 12, Luke 13
Day 4 - Luke 14, Luke 15
Day 5 - Luke 16, Luke 17
Day 6 - John 11, Luke 18
Day 7 - Matthew 19, Mark 10

Week 5
Day 1 - Matthew 20, Matthew 21
Day 2 - Luke 19
Day 3 - Mark 11, John 12
Day 4 - Matthew 22, Mark 12
Day 5 - Matthew 23, Luke 20, Luke 21
Day 6 - Mark 13
Day 7 - Matthew 24, Matthew 25

Week 6
Day 1 - Matthew 26, Mark 14
Day 2 - Luke 22, John 13
Day 3 - John 14, John 15, John 16, John 17
Day 4 - Matthew 27, Mark 15
Day 5 - Luke 23, John 18, John 19
Day 6 - Matthew 28, Mark 16
Day 7 - Luke 24, John 20, John 21

I also highly recommend journaling through this as well and writing down observations, questions, and what the application of each day's passages are. That's what we're doing in group and it's so helpful. It's helped me see things and realize things (and ponder things) I've never noticed before.

  1. Howard had a chronological Bible and raved about it. I have read the Bible chronologically and it really makes a lot of things more understandable.
