We are currently on Week 3 of the Beginnings reading plan.
The Student Ministry at Pathway is currently engaging in the Immerse Bible Reading resource. We are on volume 1: Messiah. Here is what you need to know about Immerse:
*Immerse is a Bible. It contains the entirety of the Old and New Testaments.
*Immerse is published in 6 volumes. Follow the link above to see the six volumes.
*Immerse has removed the chapter and verse denominations from the text. There are
a few benefits to this. First, this is how the Bible was originally written -- without any
verse or chapter markings. The Hebrew Old Testament had a system to demarcate
longer sections within books but it did not follow anything close to the verse/chapter
distinction we have today. Second, this helps the Bible feel more like a story (which it
is!) when reading it. Third, and finally, this helps with engaging in the Bible in a new
way. You would be surprised at how much more engaged you feel when the pages
aren't unimaginably thin and you're reading from 4 columns of text.
*Immerse is a way that we are reading the Bible in community -- again which is how
the Bible was meant to be read. Every week, no matter where we are, we are talking
about the prior week's reading with one another. Sharpening one another.
Get Immersed with us!
