When is the Best Time of Day to Read the Bible?

Bible FAQsQ: When is the best time of day to read the Bible?

A: There is no specific best time.

The best time for you to read the Bible is whenever you are going to be able to give it your full attention, focusing on it, blocking out distractions, and not being rushed to finish.

Many people like to read their Bible in the morning, before they begin their day. Others feel Bible reading is a great way to conclude their day and focus their thoughts before going to sleep. Some find that arriving at work early and reading before others arrive best prepares them for the workday. Other options include reading during your lunch hour or coffee break, on your morning commute (providing you’re not driving), while savoring a cup of coffee, or even enjoying a hot bath!

Ultimately, the best time to read the Bible is whenever you can get the most return out of your investment of time and energy.

Why Should I Read the Bible Every Day?

 

Q: Why should I read the Bible every day?

Bible FAQsA: Just as we eat regularly to maintain our physical health, regular Bible reading helps keep us on track and healthy in a spiritual sense.

Just as it would be ludicrous to eat a big meal on Sunday and expect it to hold us for a week, reading the Bible sporadically – or not at all – is equally unwise from a spiritual standpoint.

In addition to regular Bible reading, other components of spiritual health include regular prayer and meditation, along with periodic fasting.

I Know Very Little About the Bible; What Are the Basics?

Bible FAQsQ: I know very little about the Bible; what are the basics?

A: The Bible is actually a collection of books, written by various authors over a period of several hundred years. Think of the Bible as a diverse anthology of godly communication to us. It contains historic accounts, poetry, letters of instruction and encouragement, messages from God sent through his emissaries (prophets), and future prophecies.

Altogether, the Bible contains 66 books*. They are grouped into two sections. The Old Testament contains 39 books that precede and anticipate Jesus. The New Testament contains 27 books and cover Jesus’ life and the work of his followers.

Some Bibles, as well as the original King James Bible, include additional books that cover a gap in time between the Old and New Testaments.*

The Hebrew Bible includes the same writings of the 39 Old Testament books, but combines some books together, resulting in 24 books.
