For many years, Stephen has taught courses in theology and church history at Faith Builders, and as anyone who has taken his Historical Theology course knows, the intersection of history and theology awakens deep passion in Stephen’s teaching. This is a seminar on historical theology that combines the history of the church with the development of ways of thinking about important doctrines.

Systematic and regular Bible reading of God’s Word is a good way of developing and deepening our relationship with Jesus Christ. Be honest with yourself and set an attainable goal… If you have never read the the entire Bible, don’t start with a goal of reading the Bible in a year. Instead, set a goal of reading the New Testament in a year, or something similar. Regardless of your plan, read with an attentive attitude and ask the Holy Spirit to lead you and teach you as you read.
Here are some plan to help you get started. I have collected these from a variety of sources and have listed them (roughly) in order of the amount of time/commitment required.
A survey the Bible in one year, reading only 15 verses a day!
Read through the New Testament in a year, reading Monday to Friday. Weekends are set aside for reflection and other reading. Especially beneficial if you’re new to a daily discipline of Bible reading.
Read straight through the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation.
Read through the Bible in a year, with each day of the week dedicated to a different genre: Epistles, The Law, History, Psalms, Poetry, Prophecy, and Gospels.
Read through the Bible in the order the events occurred chronologically.
The Old Testament readings are similar to Israel’s Hebrew Bible, and the New Testament readings are an attempt to follow the order in which the books were authored.
Read the entire New Testament in 90 days.
Read the Bible cover to cover by investing as little as thirty minutes a day. In 90 days, you will see the big picture of God’s great story unfolding before you.
Read the Old and New Testaments once, and Psalms & Proverbs four times
Read through the Bible one chapter at a time. Readings alternate between the Old and New Testaments.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. (Luke 2:11)
Jesus came to earth in the form of a helpless baby… so that he could redeem us from the clutches of sin and death! Without compromising His deity, He became fully human – an incomprehensible act of love and sacrifice.
John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word [Jesus] was God.
John 1:14 And the Word [Jesus] became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.
Colossians 2:9 For in him [Jesus] the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily…
Jesus is coming again – and soon – for His disciples (followers) who believe Jesus is their Savior, Redeemer, Lord, and King… living lives of obedience, submission, and self-denial in the kingdom because of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Many living in Palestine 2,000 years failed recognize Jesus for who He was… the promised Messiah. Many today are unwilling to surrender their own desires to the will of the King. Let’s not be among those!
