Reading through the Bible

Greetings, since we have been at this a month and a half, I thought I would change how I have been commenting.  Up until now I have sort of been doing whatever I wanted each day.  However now I would like a more systematic approach, because there are many ways to study the scriptures—and all can be helpful.  So I would like to model some of the ways you can read the Bible each week.  My idea is to have a different type of Bible study technique used each day, you than both know what to expect and what can think about these types of Bible study techniques even when I am not using it on that day.

Please go ahead and read the blogpost about it for full details but here is the brief schedule.

Sunday: Questions

Monday: Salvation History

Tuesday: Historical Criticism

Wednesday: Reader Response

Thursday: Law and Gospel

Friday: Textual Criticism

Saturday:  Sabbath—just read and pray
