Starting today my wife has begun to read the bible with more depth. Today she read the first chapter of Luke and gave me her feedback on what she read – which I find totally awesome of her. She has never read the bible for herself – so for her this is a major step in formulating opinions about the stuff she reads. So what does it all mean?
How should she read the bible? What do you suggest she do in reading the bible? Which book is a good place to start – and then where to next? Just some questions – but basically – how should she read the bible?
I suggested she start at Luke and read a bit at a time. Why Luke? Well it’s a gospel coated in really colorful language and has many a parable to learn from. Also my perspective is the gospels are of great importance and reading them (or even one of them) is a good introduction to this faith. I also feel Luke was a great writer and tried to encapsulate the whole story of Jesus’ life – originally to Theophilus – but I told my wife ‘imagine he wrote this to you to read’. I think that makes some sense.
