20x Bible Reading Method

After reading and writing about the 20x Bible reading method, I’ve decided–I think with a nudge from the Holy Spirit while reviewing memorized verses from it–to read James multiple times. I’m not going to commit to a certain number of times, but knowing me I’ll probably feel like a wimp if I don’t do 20. Plus I’ll probably miss out on God speaking more from it.

Since I’m studying Proverbs, I’ve been making parallels to James, the ‘wisdom book of the New Testament’. (I plan on posting that.) It makes a perfect book to read in this way because of the subject matter for me right now and its length.

I think I’d like to read it multiple times in my primary and secondary translations and then use all the Bibles I have for the last 6-7 times. Or is it 8-9? I’ve lost count. Maybe I’ll put the ISV on my eBook reader too. (David Black bait.) The Lattimore NT, with its lack of headings, verse and chapter numbers, might be good for this type of thing too.

Now that I’m writing about it, I’m really looking forward to it.

It will also make me feel superior and make God like me better. The real reason for writing this post is to see if anyone else has done this and to report back with anything I may have learned that might encourage others to try it, like so many older and wiser people who have gone before and encouraged me. God showing His love for what He did on the cross is what’s indicative, not how many times we read the Bible or anything we do.

Romans 9:16 HCSB
So then it does not depend on human will or effort, but on God who shows mercy.

2 Timothy 4:13
When you come, bring the cloak I left in Troas with Carpus, as well as the scrolls, especially the parchments.

    You should write a commentary on one entire book for beginners. Before you start that you should read, “The Living God Bible Writers.” These men are world famous — and they believe that, “God is alive today — on earth.” They begin with Revelation or Daniel, and Daniel dates the Rapture in AD 77 (Dan 2.41-42; Dan 7.9-10, Dan 12). 42 Months is Dan 7.25 and Fall of Babylon (1870) is Dan 26-27, and the “Mystery of God was finished”; Rev 10,7, 11.15. But the, “Second Dark Ages” (Satan Loosed a Little; Rev 20.3) has led men back to captivity to the Beast. But Daniel is the easiest.

    Has any one else done what….things that make them feel superior and things so that God will like them better…? YES! Though it does seem a bit silly later on….*; )

    However…the one that brought the cloak and the scrolls and parchments to Paul, they for sure were placed on Paul’s A-list of friends!

    Nancy your humor is sometimes like mine. It usually catches me off-guard at first.

    I never really thought about Paul not having his ‘library’ and someone else bringing it to him. I’d certainly be grateful for that.

    I’ve always thought about how he seems to have everything memorized, but he still wants them. But we don’t know exactly what all the scrolls and parchments were.
