The Bible is a profound and beautiful book that tells one unified story from beginning to end, but it’s also a very long book.  For many people, it is intimidating and overwhelming.  This reading program has been created to help participants read through the entire Bible with greater understanding and to see the beauty and wisdom of this ancient story that points to Jesus.

The Reading Scripture Planbible-project

This plan takes you through the entire Bible in one year, starting on September 18, 2016.  The scriptures are divided up into 16 “chapters” and organized in semi-chronological order.  You’ll read two or three chapters a day, and sometimes skim through larger portions that contain genealogies, census information, etc.  The daily scripture “assignments” can be found by month on the menu at right.

Psalms of Prayer/Devotional

One Psalm is listed each day for you to slowly pray through, making its words your own.  By the end, you will have prayed through the book of Psalms 2.5 times.


Each day you come to a new biblical book, there will be a short animated video on The Bible Project website about that book’s design and message and what to look for as you read.  You can also sign up to have those videos emailed to your inbox.  In addition to videos regarding books of the Bible, you will find videos relating to several topics that appear throughout Scripture.
