Completing the 90-Day Horner Bible Reading Plan


I’m nearing the end of the modified Horner Bible Reading plan for 90 days, now down to 13 chapters per day — and after tomorrow (finishing Malachi) down to 12 chapters.  It’s been fun and interesting, similar to my standard plan in the amount of reading, but always different readings (no lists repeating again) — plus more concentration in the Old Testament.

Reading Nehemiah and Esther together has been interesting — two contrasting views of the same time period (after the Babylonian exile).  Recently I read Zechariah 12 and Revelation 1 together, a great combination since Rev. 1:7 directly references Zechariah 12:10.  Other great reading pairs have included Numbers 14 — where God swears by the truth that the glory of the Lord will fill the earth — a few days after Habakkuk 2:14, and Psalm 145:10-13 on the same day as Revelation 5, the time when Christ begins to take action — the arrival of the Kingdom is near!

Reading Deuteronomy always fits well with the later history, with the frequent reminders to the people of Israel to honor the Lord God and not follow the ways of the nations around them — and the sad result throughout chapters of OT history and prophets, that they did not follow God and that all the consequences that God warned them of indeed came to pass in their later history.

Psalm 119 has great wisdom, as in verse 36, so appropriate along with reading of Gehazi’s greed in 2 Kings 5:19-27.

Hebrews 13:13 (“Therefore let us go to him outside the camp and bear the reproach he endured”) on the same day as Luke 23 is also very fitting.
