Beginning a New Year with Scripture

Happy New Year and welcome 2021! The Northwest Ohio Synod of the ELCA is encouraging us to consider spending the year studying scripture together, just as we did a few years ago as we took on reading the entire Bible cover to cover. This time will be a little bit different, as we will be looking at the New Testament and doing so is chronological order.

What does that mean? Rather than starting with the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John we’ll be starting with the earliest letters and work our way through the New Testament in the order that most scholars believe they were written. Personally, I’ve never read the New Testament in this manner, so I’m looking forward to seeing how God’s Word speaks to us anew this year as we set off on another Year of Scripture together.
