How much of the Bible have you read?
Most of it at one point or another, due mostly to rigorous Sunday School teachers.
I've read it all, at least once.
I've read both the Old Testament and the New Testament through three times. I've read the Psalms, Proverbs, Job and Revelations more often.
Most of it. Both Old and New Testaments. Living the message is more important than reading it, in my snooty opinion.
Maybe a line or two. I'm not religious.
as much as I should have. Catholics now have a three-year cycle of readings
for the Sunday Masses, so I've read everything in the three-year cycle
now. That's a reading from the Old Testament, a reading from either Acts
or an epistle, and a gospel reading from Matthew, Mark, Luke, or John,
every Sunday. When I was a sixth-grader, the priest who taught our religion
class let us pick a book of the Bible to study, and we did Revelation.
In college, I
I have read a lot of different parts of the Bible. Sometimes I will just open it and start reading wherever the page falls to. I do know, however, that I have read all of Genesis, Exodus, Ruth, and Matthew. I should read the Bible more often though, as I have been slacking in this category lately.
A verse here, a chapter there.
All of it. I also take bible study classes at my church that will study specific chapters or books of the Bible. I have listen to most of the new testament on CD spoken by Max McLean, who has an unusual accent and speaking voice, but who brings the bible alive - the Bible was originally an oral tradition passed down from generations.
Enough to be disgusted.
I read it cover-to-cover when I was 18 or 19. Prior to that one of the meetings I went to coverd 3 to 5 chapters every week. About 5 years ago I tried reading the Koran but only got about 3 books in.
Bits and pieces of the Old and New Testament with various Psalms thrown in. Typical for a young person raised Catholic.
very little. I'm not a christian
Not to sound pretentious, but i believe i have read most of it. but there is a major difference between reading it and understanding it. to understand it one must actively live out what it teaches, not just in part where it is easy to do so, but the difficult parts. the parts that seem to go against everything this world advocates (tolerance,passivity,etc) but to seek the heart of The One who inspired it and to hate what He hates and to love what He loves.
