Reading the Bible Out Loud Together
Throughout our discussion of 1 John we’ll be spending a lot of time reading large chunks of the Bible out loud together. This straightforward practice has long been a part of the Jewish and Christian tradition.
To understand what this tradition is, and why it can be so potent, check out this video from the Bible project.
If you want to know more about this practice and where it came from, you can listen to their three-part podcast “How to Read the Bible.” Here’s how they describe the episode:
Tim and Jon discuss the differences in ancient and modern ways of reading scripture, including why the Hebrew people would read scripture together as a group. The guys also talk about how challenging it can be to read the Bible by yourself.
If you haven’t already, be sure you watch the introductory video to 1 John.
