The Old Testament

This year in Sunday School we are studying the Old Testament. I'm a little bit sad that I can't be in there because I'm in primary, because I don't know the Old Testament well at all. In fact, there have been times when a scripture has been mentioned and I can't remember if that book is in the Old Testament or the New Testament. But it is really hard for me to study the Old Testament alone, I just really struggle with it.

So now I am setting a goal to do the assigned readings every week and keep up with it so that I can have it finished by the end of the year. I realize that it's not the same as reading it cover to cover, but if I do the readings and use the study guide, maybe I will gain a little bit of understanding.

I just had to share my goal. If I share it, I will be more likely to do it.

I set a goal a few years ago to really read the bible. It took me over 2 years to get through the old testament. I read it along with the Institute manual. Aaron found one at the DI for cheap. It made all the difference! It doesn't do an explanation of every chapter, but goes over specific verses. It really helped me understand things. Isaiah became a new favorite because I actually understood what was being said. It took a long time because the manual adds some reading to the scripture reading, but it was totally worth it!
