Read Through The Bible With The Barking Fox

Bible ReadingAre the people of God really the people of God if they don’t pay attention to what God says?  How do they even know what He says?  That should be an easy question to answer.  It’s right here in the Bible:

Your word I have hidden in my heart, that I might not sin against You.  (Psalm 119:11 NKJV)

Here is a tool that can help those who want to find out what God says.  Fair warning, though:  It takes some discipline!  This is a Bible reading plan that goes through the entire Bible in one year, but in a slightly different way.  This plan is a combination of the Jewish and Christian approaches toward the Scriptures.

The Jewish approach is to read through the Torah (the books of Moses:  Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy) in weekly portions, combined with selections from the Haftorah, which are selected readings from the Prophets and other books of the Tanakh (“Old Testament”).  The Torah cycle begins after the Fall Feasts of Rosh Hashanah (Head of the Year/Trumpets), Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement), and Sukkot (Tabernacles) and goes through the entire Hebrew year to the next occurrence of the Fall Feasts.  This year the cycle begins the week of October 12-18.  In this reading plan, the Torah cycle is broken down into daily portions as one would normally find in any Jewish or Messianic reading plan.  The weekly Haftorah portions are grouped together on the Shabbat (Sabbath) day readings, with additional Haftorah selections for the Feasts appearing on the reading plan at those special times during the year.

One Christian approach to reading the Bible is to go through all 66 books of the Tanakh and Apostolic Writings (“New Testament”) every year.  This plan does that also.  All of the Tanakh starting with Joshua and ending with Malachi, as well as the Apostolic Writings from Matthew to Revelation, appear as daily portions along with the daily Torah and weekly Haftorah readings.  There is no intentional connection of these daily readings with the Torah portions, just a straightforward presentation of each book in bite-sized portions in the order they appear in the Christian canon.

If you are in search of an organized approach to the Word of God, maybe this can help.  Whatever you do, please do get into the Word so that it can get into you!

    LOVE LOVE this reading plan!! Thank you for making it easy to print and use for the rest of us. My family and I will be joining you with this cyclical reading plan this year. 😊

    I’m also going to reblog this post as a suggestion for my readers to use as well. Perfect for this Shemitah year!

    Reblogged this on GRACE in TORAH and commented:
    Al, of The Barking Fox, has designed something that I believe is perfect for not only the Shemitah year, but for many cycles to come.

    For many years I’ve desired to read through the Bible in a year by following some of the common reading schedules. But, there is always a “problem” for me and my family. As followers of Yeshua and Torah (not to mention homeschooling which has its own Bible focuses), each plan lacks the foundational time we desire to devote to the weekly Torah cycle. Thus, we usually end up dropping the schedule to work through our own hodgepodge version. Enter my friend Al over at The Barking Fox…

    His comprehensive reading plan will take you through the entire Bible in a year while enabling you to stay on the traditional Torah and Haftarah cycle. I’m super excited that he has made this so easy for me and you. (: As a homeschooling mother, I end up restructuring more things than I’d like to admit. It’s time consuming and tedious. Thanks again, Al, for making my life easier!

    I hope you will join The Barking Fox and Grace in Torah this year and read through the Bible in a year. At the end of Sukkot next year, we will all have finished a complete reading of God’s awesome Word.

    P. S. Be sure to check out other articles on his blog; they are full of grace and truth!
