Luke Daily Reading Plan


This reading plan groups stories, incidents, parables, and events from the book of Luke to supplement both the focus of the weekend Gatherings, and the weekly Group themes. These daily readings have intentionally arranged clusters of scriptures to stimulate conversation and sharing in Groups, and to encourage personal reflection and application during your quiet time with God. The headings for each group of verses are consistent with those found in the Luke Journal Bible available at the Resources@First area in the foyer. We hope you find these helpful and provocative.
