Your KJV Bible has 1,187 scripture chapters. Whether you’re planning to read your Bible from cover to cover or just read various books or chapters, these Bible Reading Checklists will be valuable tracking and recording tools for you. The seven Bible Reading Checklists cover both the Old & New Testaments, with a place to mark for every one of those chapters when you read them.
The Bible is divided into two major divisions: the Old Testament, which records events for about 4,000 years prior to the birth of Jesus Christ, and the New Testament, which tells of his life and ministry and events for about a half century following his death and resurrection. This unique set of reading checklists contains eight valuable charts designed to record the completion of each chapter as it is read. Five are about the Old Testament: (1) The Pentateuch (5 books: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy), (2) the Historical books (12 books: Joshua, Judges, Ruth, 1 Samuel, 2 Samuel, 1 Kings, 2 Kings, 1 Chronicles, 2 Chronicles, Ezra, Nehemiah and Esther), (3) The Wisdom books (5 books: Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Solomon), the Major Prophets (5 books: Isaiah, Jeremiah, Lamentations, Ezekiel, Daniel), and the Minor Prophets (12 books: Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah, Malachi). Two more of the scripture reading checklist charts in this set are about the New Testament: (6) the Four Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John) and (7) Acts through Revelation (23 books: Acts, Romans, 1 Corinthians, 2 Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philipians, Colossians, 1 Thessalonians, 2 Thessalonians, 1 Timothy, 2 Timothy, Titus, Philemon, Hebrews, James, 1 Peter, 2 Peter, 1 John, 2 John, 3 John, Jude, Revelation). (8) The eighth chart is titled Scripture Reading-time Calculations. It tells how many chapters there are in the Old Testament (927) and the New Testament (260), and calculates how many days, and weeks, it will take to read those two books if you read 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6 chapters per day. With that information, your setting of realistic reading-completion goals can be made with little difficulty. Experience has shown that careful posting of the chapters read on a daily basis will really help you to stay focused and moving forward towards your personal goals. Along with the set of charts, an instruction sheet explains the few steps readers need to take to set up their reading program on a computer using an Excel (or equivalent) spreadsheet program, and the provided sheets are examples that can be easily followed.
