Chronological One-Year Reading Plan

1-Year Plan.

These readings are compiled by folks who take the scripture very seriously.  It purports to be according to recent historical research, taking into account "the order in which the recorded events actually occurred."  As you can read from my brief reflections on the passages in 2017 I don't think "actually occurred" in the modern historical sense applies--or was intended by the authors to apply--to many Biblical passages any more than Homer--whatever that means--and Homer's readers thought it was possible to know the goings on in Achilles' tent during the Trojan war.

Nonetheless, the story of Job is set in a time prior to the story of Jonah and I think this is a compelling way to move through the Bible.  (Think watching Episodes 1-3, Rogue 1, then Episodes 4-7 of Star Wars.)  And, I am grateful for the good, hard work that went into it by the Blue Letter Bible folks.
