Every day should be a celebration of the Bible! How? Easy as pie! Reading it, of course! I can’t think of a better way.
I’m putting together materials for a Sunday Bible Celebration and one of the pieces is about how much time it will take to read the Bible. There are different opinions, all from 70 to 77 hours. I guess it depends on if you’re a fast or a slow reader. I have not timed myself, but it could be an interesting activity.
Here is an interesting breakdown:
If you read one verse a day (using 10 seconds daily),
you will read it in 85 years.
If you read one chapter each Sunday (using 4 minutes a week),
you will read it in 22 years.
If you read one chapter every day (using 4 minutes daily),
you will read it in 3 years.
If you read 3 chapters every week day and 5 on Sundays
(using 12 & 20 minutes respectively),
you will read it in one year.
If you read 7 chapters every day (using 30 minutes daily),
you will read it in 6 months, that is twice a year.
If you read 20 chapters every day (using 1 hour & 20 minutes daily),
you will read it in 2 months, that is 6 times a year.
