My 2018 Bible Reading Plan

I have already started my 2018 reading plan.

The Cornerstone Plan

I'm building on habits I formed previously by continuing to follow the Cornerstone Reading Plan. I'm starting in John and reading portions of chapters of the Gospels each day rather than whole chapters, so I can take more extensive notes. I'm starting the Apostles section in Romans and the Prophets section in Ezekiel before cycling back around to Genesis. I'm starting in Ezekiel because of an extensive study of Isaiah and the Minor Prophets this year.

Gospels: One section (10-20 verses) starting in John 1
Apostles (Epistles): One chapter starting in Romans
Prophets (OT): Two chapters starting in Ezekiel

The Edition

Last year I received an Interleaved ESV Journaling Bible in leather for Christmas. I was stunned by how nice it is. Almost too nice to write in. Almost.

I am taking notes on the blank pages in this edition during my reading through the Gospels.

My notes have a simple structure: Date, Reference, notes. I'm left with plenty of space to add notes later and see what I learn over the years.

The Notebook

I'm taking notes on the rest of my reading in my notebook. I have similar format:
At least one note on what I read (even if it's obvious).
A summary of simple applications from all of my readings in a What is God Saying? section.

I Memorized First John this Year

I finished my 2017 memorization goal! I used the 5 x 5 method to memorize First John. I wouldn't be able to rattle off the whole thing in order right now, but I could probably do chapters 4 and 5. My goal for 2018 will be to review each chapter and make sure I have them rock solid for the rest of my life. 

I will follow a 5 x 5 schedule of review.

Monday: 1 John 1
Tuesday: 1 John 2
Wednesday: 1 John 3
Thursday: 1 John 4
Friday: 1 John 5

1 John 1 and 2

1 John 3

1 John 4

1 John 5

Back on Pace!

Got back on pace for memorization. I hope to get through the book by the end of the year. I'm using the 5 x 5 Method to memorize 1 John. I will be reviewing these ten verses 5 times per day for the next week.

Commentary Sale!

My favorite commentary set right now is the Expositor's Bible Commentary. While, I can't vouch for all the content I own the New Testament volumes and some of the Prophets as well. I consistently find it clear and readable with important information on history, background, and textual issues but an emphasis on exegesis and the meaning and interpretation of Scripture. These commentaries contain the full text of Scripture as well as the notes and are written in a more popular style. This makes them great for reading as well as reference.

Right now a number of volumes of the Expositor's Bible Commentary are on sale for $4.99 on Kindle, including my favorite commentary on Jeremiah by Dr. Michael Brown. I highly recommend the commentary and purchased a second copy on Kindle (I already own a hardcover). I also grabbed the Isaiah commentary.

You can check out what volumes are on sale at Amazon.
