In January of 2008, I started an outline for combining the parallel passages of the Old Testament using outlines from Zondervan’s NASB study Bible. I found it fascinating that different authors were writing about the same events and that the Bible was about actual history, but I left it unfinished for a long time. It is a rather large task. About a year later I wrote down the same sort of thing for the Gospel harmony, out of “The Life of Christ in Stereo” by Cheney. That’s just the sort of thing I enjoy doing.
I later returned to my outline and decided it was so cool, I should make it available to everyone, and the Bible Narrative Project was born New Years Day, 2011. The outline is available here (with a separate page collecting all the “blendings” together), and is in mostly chronological order. Eventually I’d love to hold the narrative in my hands. I haven’t attempted to print the entire Bible…and won’t until the project is complete. At least I have eternity :)
My testimony is here. Notice the bit about Jonah? It’s kind of ironic, but—once I got all done with the outline for the year, it just so happens that the book of Jonah falls right on my birthday! Cool, eh?
Here are my thoughts on Bible Study Methods and here are my Notes.
