Readings 8-16 from The Books of the Bible (TBoTB)

Remember, the Pentateuch (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy) was originally one book. So, in these days you might think in terms that you are reading Chapters 3-5 of that larger book, which is still often called the Pentateuch. This section may also be understood as the last section of the larger Exodus narrative God’s EPIC Adventure (141-147).


  • Reading 8: 135-154
  • Reading 9: 154-171

Thought To Contemplate

When failure in relationship with God happens, one should not lose sight that there is a way to return and continue to have relationship with God.


  • Reading 10: 173-189
  • Reading 11: 189-203
  • Reading 12: 203-219
  • Reading 13: 219-228

Thought To Contemplate

In the darkest situations, there is still hope. Stubbornness to do our own thing will be met by God with judgment and grace. He is faithful and committed to bringing us through our darkest hours.


  • Reading 14: 233-248
  • Reading 15: 248-263
  • Reading 16: 263-278

Thought To Contemplate

To successive generations, God is faithful to his Covenant / Kingdom Rule. BTW: Deuteronomy is one of the most frequently quoted books in the Second Testament. To know the story of this last chapter of the Pentateuch helps us in our attempt to understand the message of the Second Testament.

Reading Guide

You can read using the following guide and take your readings a bit slower:

  • To read at a 100 Day pace, read the page numbers in the 100 Day column.
  • To read at a 200 Day pace, read the page numbers in the 200 Day column.
  • To read at a 300 Day pace, read the page numbers in the 300 Day column.

You create the days of the week you want to read.

The days are color highlighted. As an example, if you are reading at the 100 Day level the first reading in Genesis would be pages 5-22 to read in one day. You read the same amount of text in the 200 Day reading, but you read it on two different days. The 300 Day reading offers pages to read in three days. Of course, the days you choose to read are up to you.

Look for white space separations on the ending pages in the charts for the end of the reading and the beginning of a new reading. The design of The Books of the Bible captures the style of the original authors in its presentation, offering you as a reader a presentation of the text that follows the natural flow of the text as a story rather than being seen as a reference book.

Reading Time

On average, the 100 Day column is about forty-five minutes to an hour of reading time. The 200 Day column is about thirty minutes for each reading section. The 300 Day column is about fifteen-twenty minutes for each reading section.

Remember, some folks read faster, and some folks read slower and the times above are built on an average of about 250-300 words a minute. Of course, this is real reading time, not reading and stop-to-think time, not meditating time, not reading and discussion time, and not reading and sharing in the comments section below time. It is just reading time!
