In late February 2013, I took on The Bible in 90 Days challenge. As I mentioned in my post on the Old Testament, it took me more than 3 months to finish reading the entire Bible.

The New Testament (NT) is made up of 4 narratives of the life, teaching, death and resurrection of Jesus, called “gospels” (or “good news” accounts) (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John); a narrative of the Apostles’ ministries in the early church (Acts of the Apostles); twenty-one letters, often called “epistles” in the biblical context, written by various authors, and consisting of Christian doctrine, counsel, instruction, and conflict resolution; and an Apocalypse, Revelation, which is a book of prophecy, containing some instructions to seven local congregations of Asia Minor, but mostly containing prophetical symbology, about the end times. (New Testament | Wikipedia)

I’ve always been partial to the Gospels. However, this was the first time I was so moved by The Gospel According to John. This particular telling of the Good News of Christ’s return greatly differs from the synoptic gospels. Lately, one of my favorite verses, John 14:27 comes from this book.

I am glad I took on this challenge. I hope to do it again – maybe I can finish it within those 90 days!

As I mentioned late February 2013, I have taken on The Bible in 90 Days challenge. Thankfully, I decided only that I’d just read the whole Bible rather than try to do this in 90 days.

I am pleased to announce that I’ve read the Old Testament (OT)! I’ve even finished 2 gospels in the New Testament so I can see the finish line! Woot!

I’ve been impressed by the cast reading the books of the Bible to me these past few months. Also, I’ve been clued in as to how to pronounce many names and words. A huge bonus was hearing a talking donkey!

The OT is composed of 39 books and is often divided into 5  sections:  the Pentateuch, the Former Prophets (or Historical Books), the Writings, and the Latter Prophets.  They relate the devotion of God to His chosen people, the nation of Israel.

What impressed me most was His devotion. I also liked the numerous references to stars. This helped me realize God’s love, like those stellar beauties, endures.
