Chronologically Thematic Plan - Entire Bible in One Year
Download printable versions here: Start Jan 1, 2012 ~ Start anytime

Starting at Genesis 1, this plan moves chronologically through the Bible, but when a weighty person, place or theme is mentioned, other parts of scripture are read alongside to go more in depth with the person, place or theme. Thus there are both Old Testament and New Testament passages all year, but they relate to each other thematically. For example, you will find the introduction to Adam at the beginning of Genesis, then follow mentions of Adam through select chapters from Romans, Hosea, 1 Timothy, etc. before continuing with Genesis.
Four chapters per day, six days per week (schedule about 30 minutes per day for reading).
Occasionally there are only three chapters per day, and from November 14th onwards, it tapers to 3, then 1-2.
One day off every week all year to review and share favorite parts with someone or a group. Or to catch up :-)

There are also some special readings (highlighted in blue) that are timed to go with calendar events, which interrupt the regular flow of passages. These are listed on the pdf of the plan.

Every chapter of the Bible appears on the schedule once during the year. Sometimes the chapter you would think would be next is temporarily skipped and then appears later on, to go with a special calendar event or theme.
