Read Through the New Testament in a Year- Chronologically

Join us in reading and studying through the entire New Testament in 2023

 

There are many Bible reading plans out there that encourage you to read through your entire Bible in a year, and they are wonderful. I highly encourage you to read through your entire Bible – in a year, if possible, or in a longer timeframe. It is well worth your time and consistency. I even have a Bible in 90 Days Reading Plan here for you, if you are feeling motivated!

 

If you have your own reading plan and just need a checklist to keep you on track, you can download this 75 Days In Your Bible Checklist.

 

However, reading through the entire Bible can be intimidating for some. I believe in being realistic for the current season you are in. I know that this next year is likely to be filled with unknowns for my family. My 11 year old daughter will be finishing up treatment for leukemia, Lord willing. We are still trying to find something that will help my little guy’s rare form of epilepsy. I also have a feeling that there will be a substantial amount of time and energy devoted to emotional and mental health in our family, after a few years of trauma.

 

With that said, I know that I want to work on being consistent in many areas of my life, including in my Bible study. However, because of the season of life I am in, I don’t feel comfortable committing to reading my Bible in a year. I don’t want to set myself up to feel as if I have failed when I am not able to keep up with my daily reading, because life happened. I also enjoy studying the passages I am reading, verses just reading them.

 

This is where the New Testament in a Year Bible Reading Plan came in. I will be reading (and studying) just one chapter of the New Testament each weekday in 2023. I have left the weekends free to be used as a break or catch up. It may also be nice to read one Psalm each weekend. This is a chronological New Testament reading plan, which is a little bit different. We will be hopping around a bit as we go through this reading plan, but still starting the year in the Gospels and ending in Revelation.

 

The checklist for each month is undated and just labeled 1 through 12, so you are able to start or pick up this reading plan any month of the year. You can complete this by yourself or grab a group of ladies who want to encourage one another together.

 

I will be updating this page as a resource to be used throughout the year as we read the New Testament. There will be resources linked for you for each book in the New Testament, so you can easily use what you need and leave the rest. Do not feel like you need to use all the references listed here – they are just options for you as you read through the New Testament. If you simply want to read one chapter a day, go for it! If you want to take a deeper dive into what you are reading, you will have the ability to do so right here. Make sure to pin or bookmark this page to refer back to it!

 

I also encourage you to join our Deeply Rooted community on Facebook and follow along on Instagram, as we will be sharing resources and overviews of what we are studying in both places.

NEED A SIMPLE JOURNAL TO HELP YOU DIG DEEP

IN YOUR BIBLE STUDY?

 

NEW TESTAMENT RESOURCES

All you really need for this reading plan is your Bible…truly. You may want to grab a journal or a simple notebook if you want to take notes. But that’s it! However, if you are like me and want a little more to add to your Bible study routine, here are some things I will be using throughout the year.

 

My main Bible for 2023 is the She Reads Truth Bible. I also am using the NIV Life Application Study Bible. You can see plenty of flipthroughs on my Instagram highlights.

 

I really enjoy this Bible Study Handbook each time I begin a new book in the Bible. It gives me introductions, genres and themes, background and contextual info and more for each book I am studying.

 

Search The Word is a great tool for learning how to dive deeper in the Word. It gives you practical Bible study skills so you can better apply and interpret Scripture. You’ll also learn about symbolism, highlighting, themes, the overarching narrative of Scripture, and how to see Christ throughout the entire Bible.

 

The book 30 Days To Understanding The Bible is a simple, straightforward guide to help you learn the Bible’s key people, events, and doctrines to get more out of God’s Word. Grasping God’s Word is a textbook that is an incredible tool for those new to the Bible and those who have been in the Word for many years.

 

I am using the Rooted Scripture Journal as I go through my daily reading this year. Writing things down helps you retain up to 40% more information. I love having a journal I can look back on and reference whenever I want to.

 

A good commentary is always a helpful tool to have when studying. I have a few commentaries, like the Moody Bible Commentary, but I also love using the Blue Letter Bible App, Enduring Word, and more.

 

There are also numerous podcasts that are wonderful tools for your studying. I use Google podcasts, but I know many use Apple. I have a highlight on Instagram on my favorite podcasts that you can check out.
