2016 Bible Reading Plan — Read the Gospels Deeply

It is about that time of the year when we are introduced to creative ways to read our Bible for the next calendar year. Did you do it this year?

This is my eighth year encouraging others to take each day of the year to read and reflect on a single unit in the Gospels. Did you know there are basically 365 units in the Gospels?

In the past, I cited five good reasons to own a Gospel Synopsis. The fifth reason is:

Read a synopsis in one year by reading one pericope [a gospel unit] every day. By coincidence, the synopsis contains 367 pericopes. That is, all four Gospels combined contain 367 units.

Get the following edition by the first of year so you are ready to go: Synopsis of the Four Gospels.

 

An Hour Long Discussion About What Matters: Freedom, Dividing Lines, Catholicity, the Lordship of Christ

Don’t even know how to describe today other than, “I’ve wanted to address these issues for a long, long time.  Let’s do it.”  Many will disagree, but hopefully, will think hard about why, and that’s the important issue for me.  Sounds a bit cryptic…just listen and you’ll figure it out!

Here is the YouTube link:

Dr. D.C. Martin of Grand Canyon College: A Teacher, A Mentor, A Friend, A Christian

I told some of my story about this great man in the description on the YouTube video, and I won’t repeat that here.  DC Martin was a great Christian man.  He truly had a heart of gold.  He passed away in December of 1995.  Shortly thereafter we had a memorial for him at the college.  I sat in the old gym and watched this video and cried like a little child.  I’ve wanted to get this video for years and, finally, I tracked it down on an old VHS cassette.  I am very, very happy to post it here.  I was privileged to have DC as a teacher many times.  He taught me much, and if you have learned from me over the years, well…here’s one of the main influences on me.  Listen to his words of wisdom.

2015 Bible Reading Plan – Read the Gospels Deeply

It is about that time of the year when we are introduced to creative ways to read our Bible for the next calender year (did you do it this year?).

This is my seventh year encouraging others to use my particular reading plan. I suggest you take each day of next year to read and reflect on a single unit in the Gospels. Did you know there are conveniently about 365 units in the Gospels?

In the past, I cited five good reasons to own a Gospel Synopsis. The fifth reason is:

Read a synopsis in one year by reading one pericope [a gospel unit] every day. By coincidence, the synopsis contains 367 pericopes (That is, all four Gospels combined contain 367 units.).

The edition I recommend for English is the Synopsis of the Four Gospels.
