I Am Reading the Bible

The Word of God 256 People

    So, I got to Judges 19: 22-29.

    So this is literally Genesis 19 (AKA Sodom and Gomorrah) but worse because the mob actually rapes and kills the girl. Also kind of avoiding the obvious question which is what the **** is wrong the these people in this book O_O. That includes God as well.

    Every day and learning more all the time.

    Its such a mixture of history, myth, legend. philosophy and poetry. At the moment I am learning a great deal by reading a Jewish commentary on the New Testament which gives it all a fresh perspective.

    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!
