The Book of John in 31 Days + Four More October Reading Challenges
For Martin Luther, who ignited the Protestant Reformation by nailing his 95 theses on the doors of a church in Wittenberg, Germany, over 500 years ago, the gospel of John was one of the most important books in the Bible for Christians to read.
“If I had to do without one or the other, either the works or the preaching of Christ, I would rather do without the works than without his preaching. For the works do not help me, but his words give life, as he himself says [John 6:63],” Luther wrote in Preface to the New Testament in 1522. “Now John writes very little about the works of Christ, but very much about his preaching, while the other evangelists write much about his works and little about his preaching.”
For an October reading challenge, use this 31-day reading plan to read the gospel of John with your homeschool family this month and color in each number or block after you complete your reading for the day.
