I was recently asked to share what I think would be a "good" way to read thru the Bible, so here's my prayed thru thoughts:
Follow the chronological reading of Scripture, using "the Voice" (and/or ESV) translation(s). As you read thru the OT ask God what it is He wants you to know about Him (since that's why He gave us every story in the OT); listen for verses that begin to point to/reveal Jesus, since Jesus is the fulfillment of all God was doing & saying in the OT.
As a break from the chronological reading, I'd also (maybe one day a wk for each) alternate between the Psalms - the song book that Jesus used, and Proverbs (the wisdom literature - since God promises to give wisdom generously to all who ask Him for it). If it's a Psalm day, I'd use Timothy Keller's approach & read the same Psalm thru twice slowly, asking God what it is He wants you to know about Him (giving Him thanks & praise), what He wants you to change about yourself based on what He's showing u about Him (repenting - leaving that old way behind) and finally, what did you learn about life that He wants you to act on, ask for, or aspire to (beginning to live this new way w/His help).
I'd also incorporate the NT into your reading so that you begin to simultaneously hear all about who Jesus is, all He's done as the final fulfillment or completion of what God was doing in the OT, and how that means hope, rescue, freedom for you (aka God's Good News in Jesus is great news for you). You'll also hear how God planned to continue Jesus' work of spreading His kingdom "on earth as it is in heaven" thru His church & in the power of His free gift of the Holy Spirit.
So maybe a week of reading would look like this:
Sunday - OT (chronologically)
Monday - NT (I can't decide which Gospel is my favorite - maybe start w/Mathew since it points to Jesus thruout as the fulfillment of the OT scriptures u r reading)
Tuesday - a Psalm
Wednesday - a Proverb (switch tues & wed around if u prefer to read a chapter of wisdom followed by a chapter from Jesus's songbook)
Thursday - return to OT
Friday - NT
Saturday - OT
Praying for joy-filled, life-changing, hope-giving reading that leads you to the greatest treasure ❤️
