I love creating 40-Day Reading Plans. I feel that 40 days are within anyone’s reach. Today’s plan is for the Gospel of John. This is the fourth gospel in chronological order and also the fourth one written. By trying to keep these reading plans to only a few minutes a day, you will be able to find time each day to do the reading. Have you used any of our other reading plans? I’d love to know in the comments below.
Gospel of John
The gospel of John is deep. It is rich in symbolism and theology. Did you know that it is the last gospel actually written? It is the book of the seven signs and the seven “I AM”. I’m actually going thru this gospel for the second time during my Bible in a Year reading plan. In this bible study reading plan, the gospel of John has been divided to be read in 40 days.
With this reading plan, we have now covered all four gospels. If you missed our bible study on the gospel of Matthew, here is the reading plan to follow. If you missed our prior bible study reading plan for the gospels of Mark and Luke, click on this link.
How To Use the Reading Plan
Below is the actual plan. Each day will require a few minutes for reading Scripture, reflection, and prayer. I try to keep these reading schedules to no more than 10 minutes of reading a day so that it easily fits into your daily routine. I would recommend you start with a short prayer asking the Holy Spirit to guide your reading. Then I would read the assigned reading for the day. Reflection afterward can be done mentally or by journaling.
What stood out in the reading today?
Who am I in this reading? Pharisee? A disciple? A person in the crowd?
What bit of today’s reading can I apply to my life?

Why not share this with friends and follow it together to do your bible study? I have Bible Reading Plans for Exodus, Paul’s Letters, and more. I am hoping to create theme ones as well. For example, I want to create one for women in the bible, another for the married couple, etc. so stay tuned.
I’ve found in my time in the Word that God reveals Himself to me in Scripture. There is so much about Him that I hadn’t known before.
The Gospel of John is available online if you don’t have a bible handy. I hope you enjoy your time in the Word. He’s there. He’s waiting for you.
