I am still having trouble when I read the Old Testament as seeing Jesus instead of myself. While some stories are easy like David and Goliath I wonder how Samson’s story points to Jesus.
I know maybe not every detail of every story needs to point directly to Christ but perhaps the whole age of the Judges point to the coming King who would lead his people perfectly.
Anyway as for my reading schedule we have almost lost the month’s head start we had. The time change is really kicking our butts this year for some reason and it is making it hard to get out of bed any earlier than we absolutely have to. I have still greatly enjoyed the scriptures this year, especially since this is the first time I have read them through with my wife. That is a wonderful treat.
Have you ever read the scriptures through with your spouse all the way? If not I would be curious how you study with your spouse if you do.
