Read the Bible in 90 Days – Week 3

Read the Bible in 90 Days – Week 3

Reading Tips

  • As you read the upcoming books, the following people will be encountered: Joshua, Rahab, Deborah, Gideon, Samson, Ruth, Naomi, Boaz, Samuel, Saul, David. Consider how these individuals interact with God.  In what ways are the faithful to God’s will?
  • In the Book of Joshua we will see Moses’ former assistant become the leader of Israel. Joshua celebrates many victories that God brings to the Israelites. At the same time, the failure of the people to completely follow God plants seeds for failure in the future.
  • In the Book of Judges, the impact of those leaders who follow God and those who do not are clearly delineated.
  • The Book of Ruth will feature the remarkable story of her faithfulness.
  • 1 Samuel shows Saul being anointed the first king of Israel after the people call for a king. Later, God directs Samuel to anoint David as Saul’s successor.  Be sure to read this for the conflicts to come between Saul and David.
