The Bible is a powerful and exciting book. It is food for our soul. It is God’s message to us about our sin and His solution in sending His Son to be our redeemer and King. This profound message speaks to every area of our life… our home, our work, our hobbies, our hopes and our fears.

However, the Bible’s size can be a barrier to understanding its richness and importance for our life. To overcome this barrier, we have selected 366 key chapters (366 for the 2020 Leap Year) from the Bible that will help the believer see God’s unfolding plan in His Word. You can download a pdf of the list here, or click on "text" in the "Podcast Overview" below. 

No doubt, there are far more than 366 “key” chapters in the Bible, however, these have been selected to help us understand the God’s redemptive plan that unfolds in His Word.

When you start to reach, begin your time with prayer. Ask the Lord to help you understand what He is saying about Himself, mankind, redemption and you. Then, read and meditate on each passage, if possible, make notations and look into surrounding passages to see the context. Perhaps consult a good Study Bible. Finally, pray about what you have read and ask the Lord to help you understand, believe and live the truths of His Word.

We hope this study has an eternal impact on your knowledge of God and His plan, and the blessings His has given in His Word!
