Bible Reading Update 5.19.11

May 19, 2011

I began this year with the intention of reading through the entire Bible in Greek this year. I hope also to finish reading again through the KJV this year.

Here is the progress (chapters read/total chapters) that God has allowed me to make so far!


Section Greek English
OT 412/920 196/920
NT 1/269 269/269
Bible 413/1189 465/1189


As God directs, I would strongly encourage any of you who know Greek to consider reading extensively in the Septaguint. Having read nearly half of it this year, I can attest to the tremendous value of such immersion in biblical Greek.

My hope is that when I read the NT in Greek later this year, Lord willing, the growing familiarity with biblical Greek that I am developing from my reading the LXX will provide me with numerous valuable insights into the Greek NT. I have experienced that many times in the past, and I look forward to what God will give me this year through such study!

  1. Hey Rajesh,

    Do you recommend any particular print editions of the LXX, or do you do your LXX readings on the computer? I have not yet taken to devotional reading on screen, I struggle to keep from distraction by tasks when I do that.

    • Hi Duncan,

      I’m reading Brenton’s parallel Greek and English printed edition of the LXX. This is my second time through the LXX with his translations, which have been very helpful. I’m with you about not reading on screen; I just have never gotten used to reading much that way.
