Bible Reading Plans 2021

I was planning to compile a list of plans, with lots of links, but the following link on the Ligonier site is so robust that I don’t need to include so many links after all. Most of the major Bible reading plans are here, including a tool to generate your own reading plan.

For something a little different, Religious Affections ministry offers a Bible Narratives Plan.

An assortment of Bibles are available at a friend’s shop, including One Year Bible’s that are already set up for a daily reading schedule. Browse the selection or call to request a specific Bible at Truth N Treasures.

Finally, if you are able to do a Bible binge reading challenge, why not try a swift reading through the whole Bible in a month or less? I did this last year and recommend everyone do it at least once! Here’s a link to some condensed reading plans that I shared in the past.

Hymn title: O Come, O Come Emmanuel

9th Century Latin hymn, translated by John Mason Neale, 1851

Please read the article at Religious Affections Ministries for more insight on this Advent hymn http://:https://religiousaffections.org/articles/hymnody/hoping-through-the-darkness-before-dawn-o-come-o-come-emmanuel/

O come, O come, Emmanuel,
and ransom captive Israel,
that mourns in lonely exile here,
until the Son of God appear.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
shall come to Thee, O Israel.

O come, Thou Rod of Jesse, free
Thine own from Satan’s tyranny;
from depths of hell Thy people save,
and give them vict’ry o’er the grave.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
shall come to Thee, O Israel.

O come, Thou Dayspring, come and cheer
our spirits by Thine advent here;
disperse the gloomy clouds of night,
and death’s dark shadows put to flight.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
shall come to Thee, O Israel.

O come, Thou Key of David, come,
and open wide our heav’nly home;
make safe the way that leads on high,
and close the path to misery.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
shall come to Thee, O Israel.
