Reading the Bible for Lent has been so good for me. For the most part it hasn't even been a huge burden, it just eliminates any questions of what to read on the subway. It has also been so interesting reading so much Bible all at once, because things stand out to me more - repetition or allusions that I might miss if they were spread out over a month or five jump out because I am reading Deuteronomy only a few days after reading Leviticus. Allow me to share an example:
- Leviticus 19:14 - You shall not curse the deaf or put a stumbling block before the blind.
- Deuteronomy 27:18 - Cursed be anyone who misleads a blind man on the road.
