I Am Reading the Bible

The Word of God 238 People

    No Grumbling????? Be Serious!

    OK..so  now, I'm in my third week of studying the Bible and I'm already being tested! The thanksgiving lesson was a reminder and I was able to apply it fairly easily. And then, Paul hits me with the whammy. You are to serve God without 'grumbling or questioning'. The...

    The Patriarchs

    Ok..so I've now completed reading Genesis and have learnt some really interesting trivia. Jacob was 70 when he ran from Esau! Joseph was in prison 13 years or more and he still never lost hope. Sarah laughed sceptically when told of Isaac's birth, Abraham laughed with joy and...

    But It's Frustrating

    I have read most of the bible ALL the New Testament and 90% of the Old Testament already. I've done a couple of bible study courses and been going to bible study / home groups for decades. These days, however, reading the bible is a bit of a struggle for me. This is because I...

    A Hopeful Beginning

    I'm embarrassed to say that I lack the discipline to stick to reading the Bible. So, over the years, I have had MANY false starts. I've finally realised that I need some external force to keep me on the track. With that in mind, I've joined my church Bible study.  My first...

    The Bible Is A Great Book

    Habakkuk

    I just finished Habakkuk, I never realized this was a book in the bible or the few previous books before it. Maybe because the authors were prophets my church didnt really teach from them? I  have 5 more books to go till I get to the New testament.

    Currently In New Testament

    I'm in the middle of the acts chapter. As a Christian I'm probably biased but this doesn't seem like a work of fiction to me. Sorry. Atleast when I'm finished reading, I'll be knowledgeable in this section.

    How To Start?

    I have started a few times before, but I seemed to do the 'skimming' technique, so nothing that I read actually stays in my head. What book should I start at, when should I read the bible, and how can I understand it to the best of my ability? Thanks!
