NT Plan

Journey Through the New Testament--A reading plan

Journey Through the New Testament is a 2-semester reading plan, which begins on September 1, 2012, and ends on April 30, 2013.  By reading one chapter a day (and two on Sabbath during first semester only), we can  read the entire New Testament in one academic year.  


As we read each day’s chapter, we will ask the same two questions that Paul asked the risen Christ on the Road to Damascus:  “Who are you, Lord?” and “What do you want me to do?”  (Acts 22:6-10) 


Journey Through the New Testament Daily Reading Guide



And he opened their understanding that they might comprehend the Scriptures. Luke 24:25 


The first semester Journey Through the New Testament reading card is available on campus at Campus Ministries Office or the Office of the School of Graduate Studies.  It is a convenient 4 x 6 inch size.

Reading Order of the Books

The reading order of the books was designed to spread the four Gospels throughout the eight months. 


Mark was placed first because it is considered to have been the first Gospel to be written.  Scholars believe that Mark obtained most of his information from Peter, so the two epistles of Peter follow Mark.  Jude, which has much in common with 2 Peter, follows it.  James is next in order to place together the two books written by Jesus’ half-brothers (Jude and James). 


Then all of the writings of the beloved disciple John come grouped together:  the Gospel of John, the three epistles of John, and Revelation.  Hebrews follows Revelation because those two books reveal some of what is happening in heaven, and New Testament scholars suggest that they be studied together.


Luke’s two-volumes are next:  the Gospel of Luke and Acts.  Because Acts introduces us to Paul, all of the epistles of Paul follow in the order in which they are given in the New Testament. 

 

Finally, we end with Matthew’s Gospel.  So the plan begins and ends with one of the Gospels.
