BIBLE READING PLAN


ALL SCRIPTURE IS BREATHED OUT BY GOD AND PROFITABLE FOR TEACHING, FOR REPROOF, FOR CORRECTION, AND FOR TRAINING IN RIGHTEOUSNESS – 2 TIMOTHY 3:16

F260 BIBLE READING PLAN

"The F-260 is a 260-day reading plan that will take a reader through the entire metanarrative of Scripture in one year. We created this plan by examining each book of the Bible, the story it tells, the truths it tells about God, and the most streamlined way we as disciples can read all of it in a year’s time. We think it’s the best Bible reading plan for busy believers who want a complete overview of scripture.


It is divided up into five sections of Scripture a week (so that you have weekends off—or even so you can use the weekends to catch up on reading that you missed during the week), each week during the year. It begins in Genesis and works through each book of the Bible in turn, highlighting important moments and key passages in the story of God’s revelation to humanity. 

Each of the readings is no longer than two chapters, because the emphasis in this plan is not on taking in a massive amount of information at one time, but rather on digesting the information that you read. 


In addition to the reading, each week also provides memory verses—sometimes from the passages you read during the week, sometimes from a different place in Scripture that references them. Some may want to tackle both verses in a week, others will choose to just do one at a time, leaving the second for the next year when you begin reading again. There’s no right option; we simply want to encourage you to hide His Word in your heart." – excerpt taken from replicate.org

How to Read Effectively

No matter which plan you decide to read, we recommend an active reading method called H.E.A.R journaling. A H.E.A.R. journal is a short reflection on one verse that you read that day that encourages understanding, application, and response. 


The H.E.A.R. method looks like this: 

  • Highlight a verse that stuck out to you during your reading.
  • Explain what the verse means in its context. 
  • Apply the truth you discovered in Scripture to your life.
  • Respond to God with a prayer or an action step you can focus on. 

You can see a sample H.E.A.R. journal entry here


There’s nothing inherently special about this reading plan. When it comes down to it, the best reading plan is simply the one that will get you into the Word. But as we approach a new year, perhaps you will consider using one of these and encouraging your Home Group to do the same. Now is the perfect time to start getting into the Word until the Word gets into you.
