Being a Hebraic Christian basically means to me that I have my roots in the Old Testament and my branches in the New Testament.
I love the whole Bible and I enjoy doing Bible things in Bible ways which includes observing the Sabbath. On the Sabbath, it is tradition to read a predetermined section of the Torah (Old Testament) each week. Most Jewish, Hebrew, and Messianic believers read the same “portion” of the Bible on the same Sabbath. I find that very unifying to know everyone who believes as I do is on the “same page” literally, in one mind and one accord! To know that if I go to any congregation on the Sabbath, anywhere in the world, we all are reading the same section of the Holy Word helps make me feel a bit closer to my Hebraic family. I want the same kind of feeling with my Christians brothers and sisters.
If I go to any given Christian church on any given Sunday we would be studying any number of topics and I would never know what to expect. I fully understand many pastors have a plan set in place by their organization or there are the pastors that pray for each sermon to get inspired and I respect that! But wouldn’t it be pretty neat to be able to have a Bible plan each week for every Christian and the pastors pray over that specific plan to get divine inspiration on what to preach about out of that set text?
My plan is to start studying the New Testament in the same fashion I study the old, by having a specific set of chapters to read each week and to do this I will be using www.Bibleplan.org ‘s New Testament In a Year plan.
Each week, I will have five Chapters of the Bible to read. I plan to read those Chapters throughout the week and “glean” from it whatever the Lord lays on my heart and then blog about it! I will also try to include fun activities for the whole family that coincide with each week 5 chapter lesson! I always appreciate other peoples ideas and comments so feel free to send me your thoughts!
