Search Scripture daily!  (Acts 17:11).

This website has been set up to encourage personal Bible discovery by paying attention to the literary structure of Scripture and the flow of thought.  Look out for chiasms in  daily Bible reading – and after that compare with what others have proposed.

All proposals made here should be considered as provisional and may be subject to modification as we learn more. (Posts marked with an * make  some reference to an academic work directly or indirectly in the posts or comments).

The website also includes tables on  Bible Echoes.

This blog is supported by  Jered Bolton –

The contributions to this blog have come in the main from those of us who are following the Bible Companion bible reading planner – which covers the  Old Testament once and the New Testament twice in a year,  To a large extent this explains the sequence of scripture passages as they have appeared.
