This being the last day of the year, it is time to I decide my reading plans for 2018. Below is my plan for 2018 but I'm open to other ideas that you folks are considering.

  1. Christian Standard Bible (each year I choose one English text that I have not read yet)
  2. Tanakh (to read alongside CSB and the Hebrew Text)
  3. The New Testament in Modern English (J.B. Phillips paraphrase to read alongside the CSB and the Greek Text)
  4. Continue to read the Great Books of the Western World (BGWW) which a number of us started last year. I'd be interested if any of you are still reading. I'm just starting volume 10.

What are your reading plan(s) for 2018?

I'm still open for a 365 day plan and hope something turns up before tomorrow. I used "Footsteps Through the Bible" last year. I'm looking at Professor Horner's ten chapters a day plan, or possibly a Logos generated plan. I hope to use the NET version with notes this time

I'll be doing the KJV in 6 months AGAIN. Smile

I'm also thinking of doing another translation in a 1 year plan, but not sure which one I will do.

I'm watching your thread for suggestions also.

Hebrews in Greek over the year.

Mark in Greek in six months

Is there any plans that make use of the deuterocanonicals in their layout?

I'm going to read through the Greek Gospels in 2018 (God willing)--three months per Gospel, even though this means more reading some quarters than others, since they vary in lengths. I'll also work through Rod Decker's Reading Koine Greek grammar at the same time.

The plan also includes possible devotional ways to interact with the text. If you want to read more (or join me), I wrote it up here, which also includes a link to the most up-to-date PDF of the plan. I've invited my congregation to join me in English, which I'll also be doing! Looking forward to it, and to hearing what others are doing.

Hebrews in Greek over the year.

I'm also doing this! The number of verses in Hebrews are such that I plan to do one a day, six days a week, and have a few days of wiggle room.

What are your reading plan(s) for 2018?

I am continuing the following: Listening to the Hebrew audio (aoal site) and Greek audio (Logos) about one chapter a day and using the WBC as commentary if I want to go to some detail.

(In the summer time I'll read Vulgate in the my log cabin. It has only a very limited Internet connection and the life is quite primitive there anyway Big Smile)

Then I try to finish reading some books about the reformation and start reading about Jews and the early church

Gold package, and original language material and ancient text material, SIL and UBS books, discourse Hebrew OT and Greek NT. PC with Windows 8.1

3 chapters from the Old Testament and 3 from the New Testament daily will get me through the O.T. once this year and the N.T. 4 times this year.  If I had the time, I would read 9 chapters from the N.T. daily  so I could read the N.T. 12 times this year 👍😁👌 Who knows I might give up the Old Testament to focus on the New Testament. I still have time to think about it before I go to bed tonight.

In case anyone is interested here is how I have set up my reading plans for this year.

  1. Reading the CSB Old Testament chronologically with the Tanakh and Hebrew.
  2. Reading the CSB New Testament harmony with the NA28 Greek and J.B. Phillips' paraphrase.
  3. I'm continuing to read the Great Books of the Western World, currently on volume 10.
  4. I'm also reading the Bible Knowledge Commentary alongside.

This is my standard daily reading for 2018 but I hope to read much more on the side. Finding more time is always the challenge.

Bruce, since I first stumbled upon it, I've been following your idea to select a new translation for Bible reading every year, and so far I did the LEB in 2015 and the NIV in 2017. I didn't read the whole Bible in 2016.

For 2018, I'm using the MEV with the M'Cheyne plan along with D A Carson's For the Love of God (Vol 1). I haven't decided on my other reading yet.

I try to read a different translation of the Scriptures every year. This year it will be THE NEW JERUSALEM BIBLE. I have the Hardback Copy in Print Form, since it is not in Logos. 

Am currently finishing up reading the NIV ARCHAEOLOGICAL STUDY BIBLE, which I also have in print Form; and which is also not in Logos.

Well done Yasmin. One reason why I spend time on the forums is to be motivated from ideas I get here from so many people.

I've not read either of these but the New Jerusalem Bible has been on my list for a while now.

How have you found the NIV Archaeological Study Bible? I've read some study Bibles in the past and found it more like reading a Bible with a concise commentary but I like the idea of focusing my Bible reading on archaeology.

I find the NIV ARCHAEOLOGICAL STUDY BIBLE to be very interesting, intriguing and wonderful Bruce Dunning 

I love archaeology, and I thought that that the Archaeological Bible Study Notes would have been in Logos a long time ago. Although I am reading the Print form, I bought the ebook on Amazon Kindle.

What i do is, I read 3 chapters a day, as well as the commentary and the archaeological notes, while highlighting as i go along; and then also highlight in the Kindle version. I started in Genesis, and am now at the end of the Book of Acts.

I love the NIV ARCHAEOLOGICAL STUDY BIBLE. It has tons of Archaeological Notes and pictures, which really brings the Scriptures alive. Am having the time of my life reading it; and God is just thrilling me through the pages of His Word.

This year I would love to spend time on The Life Of Christ. Any ideas for a reading plan that would help me read through the Gospels chronologically through the Life of Christ?

Ted. there are a number of ways this could be done. This year once again I'm reading the NT through chronologically but since you said you just want to study the life of Christ you can read a harmony of the gospels by copying and inserting the following passages into your reading plan. Choose the length of time and version and you are on your way.

Lk 1:1–4; Jn 1:1–18; Mt 1:1–17; Lk 3:23–38; 1:5–25, 26–56, 57–80; Mt 1:18–25; Lk 2:1–38; Mt 2; Lk 2:39–52; Mt 3:1; Mk 1:1–4; Lk 3:1–2; Jn 1:19–28; Mt 3:2–12; Mk 1:2–8; Lk 3:3–18; Jn 1:26–27; Mt 14:4–12; Lk 3:19–20; Mt 3:13–17; Mk 1:9–11; Lk 3:21–23; Jn 1:29–34; Mt 4:1–11; Mk 1:12–13; Lk 4:1–13; Jn 1:35–2:12, 13–25; 3:1–30; Mt 4:12; Mk 1:14; Lk 4:14; Jn 4:1–42; Mk 1:15; Lk 4:15; Jn 4:43–54; Lk 4:16–30; Mt 4:13–22; Mk 1:16–20; Lk 5:1–11; Mk 1:21–28; Lk 4:31–37; Mt 8:14–17; Mk 1:29–34; Lk 4:38–41; Mt 4:23–25; Mk 1:35–39; Lk 4:42–44; Mt 8:1–4; Mk 1:40–45; Lk 5:12–16; Mt 9:1–8; Mk 2:1–12; Lk 5:17–26; Mt 9:9–13; Mk 2:13–17; Lk 5:27–32; Mt 9:14–17; Mk 2:18–22; Lk 5:33–39; Jn 5:1–18, 19–47; Mt 12:1–8; Mk 2:23–28; Lk 6:1–5; Mt 12:9–14; Mk 3:1–6; Lk 6:6–11; Mt 12:15–21; Mk 3:7–12; Lk 6:17–19; Mk 3:13–19; Lk 6:12–16; Mt 5:1–16, 17–42, 43–6:18, 19–7:6, 7–29; Lk 6:20–49; Mt 8:5–13; Lk 7:1–17; Mt 11:2–19; Lk 7:18–35; Mt 11:20–30; Lk 7:36–8:3; Mt 12:22–37; Mk 3:20–30; Lk 11:14–23; Mt 12:38–45; Lk 11:24–26, 29–36; Mt 12:46–50; Mk 3:31–35; Lk 8:19–21; Mt 13:1–23, 24–52; Mk 4:1–34; Lk 8:4–18; Mt 8:23–27; Mk 4:35–41; Lk 8:22–25; Mt 8:28–34; Mk 5:1–20; Lk 8:26–39; Mt 9:18–26; Mk 5:21–43; Lk 8:40–56; Mt 9:27–34; 13:53–58; Mk 6:1–6; Mt 9:35–10:25, 26–11:1; Mk 6:6–13; Lk 9:1–6; Mt 14:1–12; Mk 6:14–29; Lk 9:7–9; Mt 14:13–21; Mk 6:30–44; Lk 9:10–17; Jn 6:1–14; Mt 14:22–33; Mk 6:45–52; Jn 6:15–21; Mt 14:34–36; Mk 6:53–56; Jn 6:22–59, 60–7:1; Mt 15:1–20; Mk 7:1–23; Mt 15:21–28; Mk 7:24–30; Mt 15:29–31; Mk 7:31–37; Mt 15:32–39; Mk 8:1–9; Mt 16:1–4; Mk 8:10–13; Mt 16:5–12; Mk 8:14–26; Mt 16:13–20; Mk 8:27–30; Lk 9:18–21; Mt 16:21–26; Mk 8:31–37; Lk 9:22–25; Mt 16:27–28; Mk 9:1; Lk 9:26–27; Mt 17:1–13; Mk 9:2–13; Lk 9:28–36; Mt 17:14–20; Mk 9:14–29; Lk 9:37–42; Mt 17:22–23; Mk 9:30–32; Lk 9:43–45; Mt 17:24–18:14, 15–35; Mk 9:33–50; Lk 9:46–62; Jn 7:2–9; Mt 19:1; Lk 9:51–56; Jn 7:10; Mt 8:18–22; Lk 9:57–62; Jn 7:2, 11–36, 37–8:11, 12–30, 31–47, 48–59; Jn 9; 10:1–21; Lk 10:1–20, 21–42; 11:1–23, 24–54; 12:1–21, 22–34, 35–59; 13:1–21; Jn 10:22–42; Lk 13:22–35; 14:1–24, 25–15:10, 11–16:13, 14–17:10; Jn 11:1–16, 17–37, 38–57; Lk 17:11–37; 18:1–14; Mt 19:1–12; Mk 10:1–12; Mt 19:13–15; Mk 10:13–16; Lk 18:15–17; Mt 19:16–30; Mk 10:17–31; Lk 18:18–30; Mt 20:1–19; Mk 10:32–34; Lk 18:31–34; Mt 20:20–28; Mk 10:35–52; Lk 18:35–19:27; Jn 11:55–12:11; Mt 21:1–9; Mk 11:1–11; Lk 19:28–44; Jn 12:12–19; Mt 21:10–19; Mk 11:12–18; Lk 19:45–48; Jn 12:20–50; Mt 21:20–22; Mk 11:19–25; Mt 21:23–22:14; Mk 11:27–12:12; Lk 20:1–19; Mt 22:15–22; Mk 12:13–17; Lk 20:20–26; Mt 22:23–33; Mk 12:18–27; Lk 20:27–40; Mt 22:34–40; Mk 12:28–34; Mt 22:41–46; Mk 12:35–37; Lk 20:41–44; Mt 23:1–14, 15–39; Mk 12:38–40; Lk 20:45–47; Mk 12:41–44; Lk 21:1–4; Mt 24:1–28, 29–51; Mk 13; Lk 21:5–19, 20–36; Mt 25:1–30, 31–26:5; Mk 14:1–2; Lk 22:1–2; Mt 26:6–13; Mk 14:3–9; Jn 12:2–8; Mt 26:14–16; Mk 14:10–11; Lk 22:3–6; Mt 26:17–19; Mk 14:12–16; Lk 22:7–13; Mt 26:20; Mk 14:17; Lk 22:14–16, 24–30; Jn 13:1–20; Mt 26:21–25; Mk 14:18–21; Lk 22:21–23; Jn 13:21–30; Mt 26:31–35; Mk 14:27–31; Lk 22:31–38; Jn 13:31–38; Mt 26:26–29; Mk 14:22–25; Lk 22:17–20; Jn 14; 15:1–17, 18–16:15, 16–33; Jn 17; Mt 26:30, 36–46; Mk 14:32–42; Lk 22:39–46; Jn 18:1; Mt 26:47–56; Mk 14:43–52; Lk 22:47–53; Jn 18:2–14, 19–23; Mt 26:57–68; Mk 14:53–65; Lk 22:54, 63–65; Jn 18:24; Mt 26:58, 69–75; Mk 14:54, 66–72; Lk 22:54–62; Jn 18:15–18, 25–27; Mt 27:1; Mk 15:1; Lk 22:66–71; Mt 27:3–10, 2, 11–14; Mk 15:1–5; Lk 23:1–7; Jn 18:28–38; Lk 23:6–12; Mt 27:15–26; Mk 15:6–15; Lk 23:13–25; Jn 18:39–19:16; Mt 27:27–30; Mk 15:16–19; Mt 27:31–34; Mk 15:20–23; Lk 23:26–33; Jn 19:16–17; Mt 27:35–44; Mk 15:24–32; Lk 23:33–43; Jn 19:18–27; Mt 27:45–50; Mk 15:33–37; Lk 23:44–46; Jn 19:28–30; Mt 27:51–56; Mk 15:38–41; Lk 23:45–49; Mt 27:57–60; Mk 15:42–46; Lk 23:50–54; Jn 19:31–37; Mt 27:61–66; Lk 23:55–56; Mk 15:47; Mt 28:1–10; Mk 16:1–8; Lk 24:1–12; Jn 20:1–10; Mk 16:9–11; Jn 20:11–18; Mt 28:9–15; Mk 16:12–13; Lk 24:13–35; Mk 16:14; Lk 24:36–43; Jn 20:19–31; Jn 21; Mt 28:16–20; Mk 16:15–18; Lk 24:44–49; Mk 16:19–20; Lk 24:50–53
