ABOUT THE 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.
HOW TO USE THE PLAN
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.
