Reading through history, it is often surprising how well messages, reports, stories, news and general information circulated before modern means of communication we take for granted today. I find it equally remarkable pondering the distances covered by travelers long before modern modes of transportation. We read about the travels of people in biblical times and can only wonder at vast lengths of distances covered when their only options were riding plodding animals, not even horses, by sail, or on foot. As we read Exodus and Deuteronomy, it marvels me to consider how Moses led the Israelites in their long journey through difficult unmapped wilderness and uncertain conditions. I’m sure we will certainly consider the challenges of long-distance travel and communication over land and sea when we later read about the missionary journeys and letters of the Apostle Paul.

I am excited to read the Bible with you, not only for the knowledge and ability to say, "I've read the whole thing," but for the wonderful things that occur when Scripture is read intentionally each day.
