How do I read the Bible?

New Testament scholar N.T. Wright offers some helpful advice, starting on a nerdy tangent:


In short:

  • Read frequently and thoroughly
  • Read in more than 10-verse chunks
  • See the parts in light of the whole (e.g. how a book fits into the Bible, or how an individual psalm fits in with all the rest)
  • See a book as a symphony and as a window into the rest of Scripture.
