Dave’s Bible Diary

BibleTux

In April of 2001 I started writing a personal Bible commentary. The continuing (since August, 2005) chain of Bible Diary posts are archived under the Bible and religion category.

What got me into this exercise, you ask? Well, since the Bible unarguably exists as a collection of real books, and since greater minds than mine and possibly yours have found it valuable to grapple with their content and some have found it life-changing, I decided to have a whack at it, too.

Dave’s Bible Diary Chronology

Tue, Apr 10, 2001 – From the back of the Book

As if I needed another “project,” I’m beginning here an experimental “Bible Diary.” I doubt whether it will have daily entries, but I feel the need for some better method of disciplined Bible study. I’m starting with James and going to the end of Revelation. So here we go.

I will be reading from The New English Translation, which is an online “beta” translation by a bunch of seminary professors. Who knows what other sources I will turn to. The commentary is mostly me winging it, so treat it with caution.

After completing my inane comments on Revelation (I should have known better), I will dive back in with Paul’s letter to the Romans and continue on through Hebrews.

Friday, March 7, 2008

It has regrettably been pretty hit or miss in recent years, but at least Lent always brings me back to this exercise. With the blessing, I’ll hit Titus through Hebrews and return to the gospels to complete the New Testament.
