Bible Plan provides a one year Bible reading plan that integrates five major kinds of Biblical literature into each day’s readings. The partial-chapter readings are divided up along historical lectionary textual divisions thus making them desirable for short thoughtful readings. The full chapter readings are arranged in a rough chronological order of the readings of the Law and Prophets amidst the historical books of the Old Testament Writings.
This Bible Plan allows for individual application or guided readings in the context of the church and its leadership. Not only does it integrate the Old and New Testament but it also allows for the readings to be integrated in morning and evening vespers (devotions as David and Paul would pray twice a day); or five times a day as in the temple worship times of 6am, 9am, 12 noon, 3pm and 6pm as the apostles did); some may chose to divide the readings into three periods as Daniel would pray. The great thing about this plan is its flexibility.
This Bible Plan could be used to enhance traditional worship services by adding the Old Testament readings to the services that are often focusing on the New Testament readings. Please see the 52 Weeks of Worship Resources.
The Five kinds of biblical literature are categorized:
The Wisdom Writings (Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Solomon);
The Old Testament Writings in approximate chronological order (the law and prophets writings are placed amidst the historical books);
The New Testament Parallel Writings with the Book of Acts for ordering events.
