Read the Bible in a Year 2022

5 day reading plan

According to the creator of this 5 day plan Bible Reading Plan, "the Old Testament is arranged chronologically, and there is a New Testament reading every day. I appreciated the way they grouped the New Testament readings. The gospels are not in chronological order, but spaced throughout the year, one for each season".
