Never think that you need to understand everything in the Bible. I do not think our minds are capable of understanding everything regarding the sacred.

The plan which I use can be downloaded for free (see below). This plan places the Bible readings in chronological order and this aids in understanding the Bible story. From Genesis through the prophets we have the story of the Israelites, through whom Jesus would come. Then the New Testament follows the story of Jesus Christ and the beginnings of the church.
The last readings in December were the book of Job, which I find fascinating. Job’s friends told Job he must be evil because he was suffering so much. Job protested that he had not sinned and was innocent and still suffering. At the end of the book, God speaks in a whirlwind, vindicating Job, but asking “How can man understand God?”
