This is a quick update for those following – or interested in – the #BCaD project.

For those not familiar with it, it is the challenge of reading a chapter from the Bible each day (Bible Chapter a Day) and posting about it on social media – a summary, a thought it sparked, a key idea.

Dave introduced it in October 2015 and since then we have worked through the five books of Moses – Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers & Deuteronomy – as well as Matthew’s Gospel.

We’re not going straight through the Bible from beginning to end but alternating between the two Testaments and different genre.

I was speaking with Dave earlier this week and he asked me to take over BCaD scheduling – something I am very happy to do.

Bible Backgrounds Galatians

Our next book is Paul’s letter to the church at Galatia. This is the first of Paul’s letters we will have done and my plan is to work through them in the order they were written. Recognising that there is some disagreement over the order of the letters (and which were actually written by Paul himself) I’m going to follow the chronology from the revised edition of the International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (page 699) which has:

  1. Galatians
  2. 1 Thessalonians
  3. 2 Thessalonians
  4. 1 Corinthians
  5. Philippians (ISBE actually splits this into two but we’ll do it in all together!)
  6. 2 Corinthians
  7. Romans
  8. Colossians
  9. Philemon
  10. Ephesians
  11. Titus
  12. 1 Timothy
  13. 2 TimothyBible Backgrounds Job

After Galatians we’ll move on to the book of Job – which explores, among other things, the sovereignty of God and questions about suffering.
