Scriptures 6 – 365 Day Read of the New Testament for Ages 8-11
(T) (P) ON
The course includes reading of the entire New Testament at an average of 22 verses a day.
The blessings of reading the New Testament include understanding more about Our Savior, Jesus Christ, His teachings, mission, and life, – and about the ministry of His Apostles.
As Elder Boyd K. Packer remarked: “True doctrine, understood, changes attitudes and behavior. The study of the doctrines of the gospel will improve behavior quicker than a study of behavior will improve behavior…That is why we stress so forcefully a study of the doctrines of the gospel.” Little Children, Ensign, Nov. 1986, 17.
This, compared to the Old Testament for ages 8-11 is a lot lighter load. If you find 22 verses a day a very easy assignment, we suggest adding “The Living Christ” course and taking a bit longer than the recommended 9-18 weeks.
