Family Bible Reading with McCheyne

With the beginning of another new year it was time to print a clean copy of a Bible reading reading plan. Last year I went through a chronological plan, but this year I’ve decided to return to a trusty old friend: the McCheyne reading plan. For several years I went through a 2x McCheyne plan that would get me through the New Testament and Psalms four times and the Old Testament twice in a year. It’s been a helpful way for me to get to those lesser-known portions of Scripture regularly.

This year I was looking for something to incorporate into family worship. The McCheyne plan is great for this as well since two of his chapters are meant to be read as a family. This is a great way to provide structure to your family Bible reading. Print a PDF of the plan and start working through it with your family. I trust you will be richly blessed (yes, even as you get to explain all those “difficult” stories as well as read through Numbers and Chronicles!).

@Camden – I started the M’Cheyne plan this year and it has rejuvenated me. You mentioned having to explain difficult passages – I think it would be fantastic if you would continue to post casually in this thread with explanations or other beneficial comments on the readings come up.

In Genesis 32:1 “malak” is translated as angels, in 32:3 the same word is translated “messengers”.
I wonder if being called an angel/messenger of God might have more to do with function than “species”, and what variety of angels their might be.

Great idea, Steve !!!
I think the difference there is between angels (messengers) of God in the first instance and messengers of Jacob in the second.

Weird word for the day: Strong’s says that “barak” can mean “to bless” by implication or “to curse” as a euphemism.
(i.e. Job 2:9 when his wife tells him to “curse God, and die”).

Yes, Steve !! See also 1: 5, 11; 2: 5 (2:9, as you reference) and 1 Kings 21: 10 and 13).

Good chapters tonight. Joseph’s character is in such stark contrast to his father and brothers!
This morning I was thinking about the moral failings (especially with women!) of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Judah, etc. in the past couple of chapters, and how God’s grace really is unmerited favor, even to these “great” men. Our reading tonight of Romans 9 tied neatly in to that as well.

Romans 14:17 “For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking but of righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.” Amen!

“called to be saints together with all those who in every place call upon the name of our Lord Jesus Christ”
