The Bible Reading Plan for 2019 seeks to emphasize the Person of Jesus Christ and the instruction given by His apostles as to the important doctrines of Christianity and the practical application of those doctrines to daily life. The Bible tells us in 2 Timothy 3:16,17, "All Scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, and for instruction in righteousness that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly equipped unto all good works." God's desire is that His children would be knowledgeable of His Word and how to apply it to their lives.
The Bible Reading Plan (BRP) divides the New Testament into three sections: Matthew through Acts; Romans through Jude; and the Book of Revelation. The reader is instructed to read a chapter a day from each section. Doing so will bring the reader through Matthew to Acts and Romans to Jude three times in one year. This will keep the reader well acquainted with Jesus Christ, the activities of the early Church, and the doctrinal and practical instruction the apostles sought to teach the believers of Christ. Reading Revelation one chapter a day will bring the reader through that book at least twelve times in a year! The reason for this continuous reading is because Revelation speaks about "What's Coming" and God places a special blessing on those who read this prophecy, note Revelation 1:3.
Not to overlook the Old Testament, the reader is encouraged to read two chapters a day from it. Doing so will bring the reader through the O.T. at least once every two years.
