Logos Reading Plan

I wanted to share with you one of my favorite features in Logos. At the beginning of this month, I discovered the SBLGNT reading plan. The reading plan breaks down all the passages in the NT into manageable chunks to provide you with a no fuss approach to reading through your Greek New Testament in a year.

When I load up the program at the bottom left of my screen is the reading plan with the reading for the day:

When I click on the passage, it pulls up the passage, and I can get to reading immediately:

As you see, there is a “Start Reading” and a “Stop Reading” bar that appears in the text. After you get to the end of the reading, you simply check the “Mark Read” box, and the program updates to your current position. The great thing is that it updates across all your devices.

There are a number of other really nice features. If you want a daily update to remind you to read for the day, just click on the “Export to iCal” option, and a list of options appears:

Also, you can get an overview of the plan for the year or even edit it as you see fit:

Finally, and this is the best part, it is all free. You can just go over to Logos, download the program, download the SBLGNT for free, and get to brushing up on your Greek. I’ve already cut into Luke 6!

[Edit: To create this reading plan if you cannot find it in the program, follow these simple steps:

1) Go to Documents:
2) Select Reading Plan
3) Chose “The Greek New Testament: SBL Edition
4) Select “All Passages”
5) Select “Starting Today”
6) Select “Finishing in one year”

    Hi Jacob! Where can I download this plan from Logos? I have looked quite a bit but cannot find anything.

    5) Select “Starting Today”
    6) Select “Finishing in one year”

    The plan should be generated according to those parameters. Sorry about the confusion.

      Thank you! That helped! Do you think I can join a group with you as accountability? I know that there is a group method. I am happy to jump ahead. I have been working through matthew and have gotten to ch. 15. But I can jump to Luke if you are open to that. I totally understand if that is not a possibility.

        I wouldn’t mind that. I am doing multiple readings per day, so I don’t know if that works for you. That may slow down a bit as I am diving into my thesis work again. So long as you are okay with it being a bit erratic, then I’ll try and sync up with you a bit later.

      • Sam Choi says:

        So does that mean you are doing it quicker than a year?

      • jacobcerone says:

        Yeah. I started Matthew 1:1 on August 1 and am in Luke 6 now, which would be the reading for October 31st. I read when I have a bit of down time or when I’m watching Elijah play.

    Ok, NVM I don’t want to hold you back. I am doing this just supplementally on top of my MDiv studies, so I don’t think I can try to keep up with you. Grace to you in your studies!
