Where to begin
How do I know where to begin reading my Bible? There is no right or wrong answer to this, but there are good and better suggestions from those who have successfully tackled reading the Bible as a whole and also from those who have just started and are enthusiastic about what they are reading.
Generally speaking each book should really be read as a whole from beginning to end and so to begin with you might want to start with something short and manageable or something particularly interesting. How about for Bible reading you start with something interestng and for Bible Study you do something short and manageable. (See the Bible Study tab where I will assist you with an easy step by step approach to Bible Study).
Something Interesting to Read
Most would know that the central figure of the Bible is Jesus and with this in mind, reading an account of his life would make for an interesting read. There are four books or accounts in the Bible specifically about Jesus and His life on earth. These books are called Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, simply named after the authors of the books. These four books are commonly called the Gospels (gospel meaning good news) as they herald the good news of Jesus' life, death and resurrection to bring us to believe in Him.
Mark is the shortest of the four accounts and in that sense it might be the easiest to approach first, if a quick account of Jesus' life is what you would like to read. The gospel of John takes a deeper look into the spiritual significance of Jesus' life, while Matthew and Luke have more extensive accounts with Matthew writing to a Jewish audience proving that Jesus is the promised Messiah. Choose one and enjoy! I personally suggest Mark or John to begin with.
