Lenten Challenge 2013

Reading the New Testament

With the help of http://biblicaeurope.com/shop you can listen to the New Testament on your MP3 player while commuting or read it on your E-book reader for just £1.50. Alternatively, you can buy a hard copy of this special edition for reading the New Testament cover to cover at church for £4. The programme below largely follows the scheme suggested by Biblica but with “chapter and verse” for those who want to use their copy of the Diamond Jubilee New Testament or indeed any another Bible to hand.

Ash Wednesday (13 Feb) until the first Sunday in Lent (17 Feb) are days to get ready or to give yourself a head start. (If you have the special edition, there is introductory material which you may want to read or listen to in those days.) The schedule gives readings for Mon-Fri which means that you get time on Sat-Sun to catch up, if need be.

If you're reading the New Testament in the special edition referred to above, the reading plan is at NT - Books of the Bible. You can also print out a reading plan from the Documents and Forms section - one sheet of A4 to be folded in half.
