Has Anyone Read The Entire Bible - Genesis To Revelation? by OmoAlata(f): 7:29pm On Aug 25, 2012
I started 'Search the Scriptures' this year. It's a 3-year bible study course by Alan M Stibbs (to complete the entire Bible). It's absolutely fantastic. It takes me about 20mins a day with the questions after you read the passage. I think it will take me less than 3 years to complete it as sometimes I get carried away with a certain subject and read 2 or 3 days worth in a day. The questions afterwards makes the passage really sink in grin

I have seen 'Read the Bible in a year' books but those ones are just to read entire chapters etc smiley

Here's an example:

Study 12
Luke 5: 1-11

1. Put yourself in the place of Simon. Trace the development of his attitude to Jesus in the successive phases of the story. In what ways is he an example to us?

2. Jesus needed fellow-workers. How and where did He find them? What marked out Simon and his colleagues as suitable? What were, for them, the conditions of being used?

The questions have made me search the scriptures a bit more in-depth and I sometimes have to google to get different perspectives grin

i do finish the bible in a month or 2. my secret, audio bible. while driving while working,while in the bathroom. i have it in my phone,ipad,wristwatch etc. im constantly listening to bible.

you can read the bible in a year by devotionals like rhapsody of realities. you will be, mandated to read at least 3chapters daily with that you would have finished the entire bible in one year. it has two programmes. one year plan and a two year plan. take the one that is, more convinient.

As much as I agree with you on the above. I don't see it as corresponding with what enhances "GOOD STUDY". Your method of going through the whole bible in a year or less or two years is good but, listening to the word everywhere and to reading are both different from STUDY. Do you know you can get stuck in one chapter for days/weeks when you are doing a good STUDY....because you really want to PROVE the text. It will involve checking every parameters surrounding a STUDY text.

I have read the entire Bible before but the problem is doing it again.

The way I'm doing it with the Study makes it very interesting. I'm reading about Joseph at the moment.

Study 33
Genesis 41: 14-57

1. What in Joseph so impressed Pharoah and his court that he was made ruler of Egypt? Compare your own character and consistency with his, and consider where you fall short.

2. If we have found in Christ the Bread of life, and men around us are perishing, what spiritual lesson may we draw from verses 54-57? smiley

You're right Goshen, i was misled by the title. i didnt really read the full content. So i assumed it was inly about bible reading . That's why I gave that response .

I do study but I may not have the time to study 3 chapters in a day. A verse as you said can take me off for the rest of the day . Most times I study by topic. But on e in a while I do Verse by verse study.

You Christians are so funny. You talk about how your faith is so important to you, yet most of you can't even be bothered to sit down and read your scriptures. And those of you that have act as if it's some great achievement or you've done something impossible.

I'm an atheist and I've read through the bible twice and put a major dent in the third read through before I got bored. And I didn't use any lame audiobooks or "bible in a year" guides to do it. This was something I was doing basically to pass the time, not that I felt it had any special significance other than the funny stories.

If you really thought your eternity depended on it, one would think you would quit your jobs and spend every waking moment studying it looking for ways to increase your chances of making heaven.

Your casual attitude to reading the bible says a lot about what you really believe.

First I want to commend you for this bold step. Its really good to see that with all the evil and corruption in the world, someone can actually devote her time to study God's word. I'm really happy for you.

Finally I would advise you to ask God for wisdom and understanding. Cos from experience, I've noticed that it takes less than 10 minutes to read a chapter but a life time to understand. Therefor endavour to ask for guidance from the holy spirit and I'm sure that you would have no regrets.

Good luck.
