Reading the Bible Chronologically

Did you know that the material in the Bible is not arranged in strict chronological order?

Have you read the entire Bible, cover to cover? I have. But now I want to read it chronologically—in the order the historical events occurred. The following plan from Blue Letter Bible will enable you to read the whole of Scripture chronologically in a calendar year:

Here’s another plan that lets you read from the Old Testament, Psalms or Proverbs, and the New Testament each day: https://www.biblica.com/resources/reading-plans/

What version or translation should you read? There are many. But the five most popular are listed here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bible_translations_into_English#Popularity. I prefer the New International Version (NIV).

To access many Bible versions online, I go to https://www.biblegateway.com.

Many blessings on your reading adventure!

The entrance of Your words gives light; It gives understanding to the simple.
–Psalm 119:130 NKJV
