Guide to Illumination – Scripture Reading

Daily Reading

Grow in faith and discover the joy that has been missing in your life by spending time each day in God’s Word. To overcome life’s difficulties, you need more than the few Scripture verses you’ve memorized.

Weekly Portions

Join with a growing number of Christians who have rediscovered the great spiritual value of the Old Testament. As you read, you will learn that it is the foundation of our faith and why it is so important to our belief in God, especially when sharing with others.

Together with New Testament portions, you will see the Word that was once written only on stone is the same one that is now written on our hearts!

Weekly Scripture Portions – One Year Cycle

The following are simplified readings by month. They DO NOT include special holiday readings, which you can find linked on our Resources page.

We’ve included readings from the Apostolic Scriptures to show that Jesus/Yeshua and His disciples were consistent in their belief and duty to the Hebrew Scriptures and teachings of the forefathers.
