I have been thinking about how I have never read the whole bible, and how difficult it becomes when it gets to certain books, where I always gave up.
A priest I follow on YouTube plans to read it in a year, chronologically, rather than in book order, and explain each reading. I think I am going to try to follow the podcast, and see what benefit I gain from it.
Perhaps I was too quick to judge people who show off about reading their whole bible as a reading feat.
It is an ancient book full of wisdom, not just the New Testament (which I have read, along with snippets throughout the book, over the years).
I hope to learn from it.
