Old Testament Studies

Below you will find a huge amount of information on weekly Old Testament Bible studies called “portions”. This will continue to grow.

The following chart will show the weekly readings from wikipedia. It’s an example of Jewish studies before the New Testament scriptures. In the Weekly Bible Studies we add the relevant New Testament Scriptures to form a “Bible-in-a-year” study.
