8WTB 2010 Week 8

This week I finished my 8 week trek through the Bible on audio, covering 220 chapters which took about 14 hours and 10 minutes. I had attempted an 8 week challenge a few years ago, only to be thwarted a few weeks into it with a job change that had me working at home.

Was it worth it?  Absolutely.  The panorama of Scripture that this kind of exercise affords is marvelous.  And the unrelenting immersion, which can often be difficult, was worth the effort.

By the way, there’s nothing magical about 8 weeks (40 work days).  When I calculated my average commute time to the length of the audio recording, it just happened to match 40 days.

I hope to do this again before the year is over.

DAY 36
Mark 13 to John 1
From Jesus marveling at the unbelief in his home town to the widow’s offering.

DAY 37
John 2 to Acts 20
From the wedding at Cana to Paul bidding a final farewell to the Ephesus church.

DAY 38
Acts 21 to 1 Timothy 6
From Paul setting sail for Jerusalem to Paul admonishing Timothy to fight the good fight of faith.

DAY 39
2 Timothy 1 to Jude
From guarding the deposit entrusted to us to a call for Christians to persevere.

DAY 40
Revelation 1 to Revelation 22
From John’s vision of the risen Christ to Jesus saying “Surely I am coming soon.”
