The idea of this Challenge reading schedule is simple. There are 260 chapters in the New Testament. If you read 2 chapters per day of the New Testament, you will complete the entire New Testament in 5 months.
It’s going to be a Spiritual Workout! Here are some ground rules:
5 months, 27 New Testament Books. Start by Sunday, December 16th and end April 30th, 2013.
Each month one book of the New Testament will be read out loud as a group on a Sunday afternoon. Join fellow Challenge participants for study and catch up:
Sunday, Jan. 20th – 2 Corinthians
Sunday, Feb. 17th – Letter to the Romans
Sunday, Mar. 10th – Letter to the Hebrews
Sunday, Apr. 14th – Book of Revelation 1-11
Sunday, Apr. 21st – Book of Revelation 12-22
It’s permissible to listen to books of the New Testament on CD as long as you give it reasonable attention! Campus Ministry has 3 sets of the New Testament CDs that can be checkout out.
You must stay up to date and cannot fall more than two sections behind to complete Mount 27.
There are over 75 Mount students, faculty, and staff taking up this Challenge! Find a friend and help keep each other on track and check the reading schedule. Read this blog to hear about the progress of the Challenge and find encouragement!
