Did you know?

To read the New Testament in one year seems daunting, but did you know…?

  • There are on average 260 week days in a year.
  • The New Testament has 260 chapters.

2014 has 261 week days. That’s 261 Monday through Fridays in this year. If you read just one chapter a day, you can read through the entire New Testament in a year. And you’ll have a day leftover in 2014.

Want to take it up a notch?

Read one chapter of the New Testament each week day with your kids. Then you and your kids have read the entire New Testament together.

Want to go a little faster?

  • There are 129 week days January – June of 2014.
  • It takes 130 days complete the New Testament if you read 2 chapters a day.

So, if you read 2 chapters a day (plus one day you’ll have to read 3 chapters), you can read through the New Testament by the end of June 2014.

  1. I am so thankful for this. As easy as this really is, for some reason, the breakdown of the 260 chapters in 261 days makes this so doable. The kids and I started today. We bought the journals to use. I’m praying that a year of this will not only build great habit and pattern in reading God’s Word daily, but also will build a great desire in my kids’ lives to read His Word.

    An added bonus, I’m the Director of Children’s Ministries at our church, and I have challenged all of the 3rd-6th graders to read through the New Testament this year. I pray that the families are blessed through it.

    Thanks again for the resource.

  2. Brilliant! We will be reading through the New Testament this year.

  1. […] This week we will finish reading¬†the New Testament straight through, so starting next week we will begin reading the Old Testament at the break-neck speed of 2 chapters per weekday. I’m planning to continue using the Picture-Smart Bible K-3 Old Testament at the beginning of each book to give them an overview of what we’re about to read. […]
