The Master Reading Plan

The Master Reading Plan

Listed below is the master reading plan which goes through the entire Bible every 164 weeks. (3.3 years) Although it is downloadable by year, this may be useful for implementing a reading schedule for yourself or an organization. It follows a loose chronological order except in the New Testament where the Gospels are purposely separated and covers an average of 11 chapters a week through the Old Testament (15 through the Psalms) and 3-4 chapters a week through the New Testament. The following table is organized in "week" order but also shows the current Walk with the Word schedule.
