Preview of the #ReadTheBook Bible reading plan

#ReadTheBook is the Bible Reading plan we encourage everyone at Veritas to do together.

We want to be a people of the book. We want to make disciples who love God, love people, and advance the gospel, but that starts with us being disciples ourselves. Jesus said in Matthew 4:4, "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God’” We need God’s word more than we need food every day.

We've found that reading the Bible in community with others helps you to actually stick with Bible Reading. We want to encourage you to do this plan with someone (your spouse, your family, your Community Group, a friend, your neighbor, etc.). Read from the plan each day and then talk about what God is teaching you with someone in person, on the phone, through text…even on Facebook.

Let’s #ReadTheBook together.


Following this plan will take you through the New Testament once in a year and the Old Testament once every three years. Here’s how the plan works:

New Testament — Read one chapter every weekday (Mon-Fri), by doing this you will read the entire NT in a year.

Old Testament — Read one chapter every weekday and one Psalm each Saturday, by doing this you will read the entire OT in three years.

What if I miss a day? — Our encouragement: Don’t try to play catch up for the days you’ve missed, just join us in reading on the day you’re able to start…or start again. 






Genesis means "beginning" so it is appropriately located at the very beginning of the bible. It details creation, the fall of man, and the beginning of God's plan of salvation.



The overarching theme of Exodus is the fulfillment of God’s promises to the patriarchs. The success of the exodus must be credited to the power and purpose of God, who remembers his promises, punishes sin, and forgives the repentant.



The Psalms are a divinely inspired hymnbook written for the people of God so that they might sing in gathered worship of God. Because of Jesus' work we are now a part of God's family which means these songs and prayers are for us as well.



The book of Leviticus goes into deeper detail about the divine-human relationship put in place on Mount Sinai (Exodus 19–40). Leviticus assumes that Israel is sinful and impure, and it describes how to deal with sin and impurity so that the holy Lord can dwell among his people.





The gospel of Luke is Luke's account of God's plan of salvation through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus.



The Book of Acts is part two of a two-volume set (Luke/Acts), continuing the story of the gospel of Jesus advancing through his church, by the power of the Holy Spirit.



Paul wrote Romans to unite the Jewish and Gentile Christians in Rome in the gospel. Paul longs for the Gentiles to become obedient Christians for the sake of Christ’s name. In the cross of Christ, God judges sin and at the same time shows his saving mercy. The ultimate goal of preaching the gospel is the glory of God.



These are two of the four letters that Paul wrote to the Church in Corinth to address problems that were going on among them and refocus them on the gospel of Jesus.
