PEANUT GALLERY: On 28 March (1st Monday of Easter), we will begin a new weekday format including “The Essential One-Hundred Bible Reading Plan.” On weekends, we will revert back to the lectionary readings that relate to Easter and then Pentecost. God willing, we will complete this new Bible Reading Plan in 20 weeks, on Sunday, 14 August.
WHY THE CHANGE? The purpose is to give us an overview of God’s Word, both Old and New Testaments, without getting lost in the minutia. The E100 Reading Plan, designed by Scripture Union, is simple and achievable.
The Essential 100 (E100®) is a carefully selected list of short Bible passages — 50 from the Old Testament and 50 from the New Testament. Most are about 1-2 chapters in length, just the right amount for a busy person to read in a few minutes. The readings cover all major types of biblical writing, including the Historical Books, Poetry and Wisdom, the Prophets, the Gospels, Acts, the Epistles and Revelation. They’re organized into 20 sets of 5 readings each, so you can easily get the big picture of the Bible without getting bogged down.
