New Testament Reading Plan Printable

This one-year plan is designed for a reading of the entire New Testament in one year. And it’s set up for five days per week of scripture reading. You can pick the five days per week to do your daily readings, so it’s a bit flexible to fit your daily schedule. But the printable shows reading days as Monday-Friday, each work day of the week. Adjust if you wish.

What Will We Read in this Bible Reading Plan?

This specific Bible plan is created to cover the whole New Testament over the course of a year. We will start at the beginning of Matthew, read the entire book, and move on to the next reading. The books in the New Testament cover a few different genre, and we will be reading these specific books of the Bible:

  • The Gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John
  • Church History: Acts
  • Letters: Romans, 1 Corinthians, 2 Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, 1 Thessalonians, 2 Thessalonians, 1 Timothy, 2 Timothy, Titus, Philemon, Hebrews, James, 1 Peter, 2 Peter, 1 John, 2 John, 3 John, and Jude
  • Prophecy: Revelation

Why Not Start at the Beginning?

Why should you not start at the very beginning and read through the whole bible? It’s a valid question. And there are chronological bible reading plan downloads out there. If you want to read through in chronological order, Genesis is the place to start. But, personal opinion here, if you start on page 1, you will first read every book of law in order.

I tried this early on as a believer. And I will admit it — with the Old Testament history first, I ended up losing steam and not reading more than a few books. (Multiple times, unfortunately.)

Especially if you’re new to the bible, read the Gospels first. It’s the best option, and the one in this New Testament reading plan printable. This way you’re reading about the life of Jesus, His miracles, His teachings, and His love for us first. That will provide you with a firm foundation and perspective through which to see and understand the rest of the Bible afterward.

There’s no better time to start reading the Bible than when you’re new to the faith! New believers need to read about the good news of Jesus and the start of the Church as a beginner. Then go back and get the history in the Old Testament readings. I believe it makes more sense that way, and then you’ll have read the entire Bible.

Why is Daily Bible Reading Important?

The daily discipline of Bible reading is key to a Christian faith. It’s one of the ways we can hear from God as the Holy Spirit is at work through the Word of God as we read.

It wasn’t until I was doing an online Bible reading plan with my husband and his sister last year that the idea for this entire website and my book came to me. This shifted my view of diabetes entirely. It’s a wonderful God-led story, and you can read about it in my blog post: I Never Planned to Write a Diabetes Book.

My Personal Experience with Daily Bible Reading

The real kicker is that I had read the verses that changed my perspective several times before in past years. I knew Jesus healed a blind man. And I knew His disciples questioned things. It was a familiar story, after all. But this specific time was different. And that’s the best part! My eyes were opened to something new during my reading that day. And I can’t tell you how many times that has happened since I have started reading scripture repeatedly.

My point is this: we need to make ourselves available to hear from God. And His Word, His love letter to His children, is one main way we can do that when we read each day.

The Bible also shows us God’s unfailing love for us. Plus, we must know the truths of God and His design for life in order to live in a God-honoring way. It gives us the courage we need to live in this fallen world. The Bible is simply our foundation.

In other words, I can’t say enough about how important daily bible reading is!

HOW CAN I USE THIS Free Reading Plan Printable?

There are several ways to use this unique plan. Here are a few ideas:

You can join together as a family in reading each of the days’ scripture passages together. Feel free to invite the kids to join you, or to read parts of the scriptures and discuss it with you.

Are you involved in a life group or small group? Reading this plan as a group can keep you connected while you’re apart during the week until you meet again for your Bible study. Consider texting thoughts with each other as you go along. Just share this post with your group to invite them to join you.

This is a great reading plan to follow in your daily quiet time. If you’re flying solo, then consider reading through each passage in multiple translations or consulting a trusted commentary. (I often turn to Enduring Word.)

Do I Have to Print This New Testament Reading Plan Printable?

You most certainly don’t have to print this New Testament reading plan printable — even though it is designed as a printable. This download lists the month, date, and scripture to read for each day all within the design. So you could easily open the download on your phone and take pictures of each of the pages for your reference as you read through the year.
