Just as one would not eat only meat, only veggies or only honey; one must use the scriptures wisely. A balance between the harder to digest meat and the quicker energy honey, offset by the break down of the fiber rich foods is healthiest.
Morning reading: New Testament. A good order for a new beginner would be John, then Paul’s writings (Romans through Philemon).A more knowledgeable student could begin with Paul. After completing Paul’s letters go to Acts, followed by Hebrews through Revelations. 20 minutes in the morning for this first reading (more is always allowed).Mid-morning: Proverbs or Psalms. 10 minutes of either or a mixture.Lunch: This is a good time to read the gospels. 10 minutes.Evening: Old Testament. Start at Genesis- 2 Kings. After that the major prophets. Next the Chronicles through Job. Lastly the minor prophets. 20 minutes.
About Buen Consejo
Buen Consejo. This name is Spanish for “Good Counsel”. I got this nick-name while doing a prison ministry, since I speak Spanish fluently. I am however, not Latino, but a Jew from the tribe of Levi, raised in Judaism. In 1980 I was brought by the old testament scriptures to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. My stand is simple: The scriptures are correct, let’s study them. Acts 24:14 “But this I confess unto thee, that after the way which they call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets:” Facebook: Buen Consejo Email: [email protected]
