Christmas Bible Reading Plan

Whether you traditionally do "advent" or not, I encourage you to take a few minutes each day and spend time in the Word. As Christmas approaches, it would be wonderful to reflect on what - exactly - we are celebrating.

Here is a four-week Bible reading plan that Paul Franklyn, associate publisher of the Common English Bible, has put together. The readings each day are fairly short so this could even be added to whatever Bible study you are already doing.

[Note: Sunday, December 4 is "three weeks before Christmas" on this plan. However, you could combine a couple in order to "catch up." Or you could just finish a week after Christmas - on New Year's Day, which wouldn't be bad either!]

Monday: Matthew 1:18-24 and Luke 1:26-33
