About Into The Word
Into The Word is a daily podcast based on the 2 year version of the RMM Bible Reading plan. The "soft launch" for this podcast is scheduled for January 2017. During the first year the plan is to release two episodes per week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Our intention is to use 2017 to refine the format and to build up content. The hard launch is scheduled for January 1st 2018. In 2018, God willing, we plan on releasing 5 episodes per week.
The podcast will feature conversation and commentary around the text of the daily readings as facilitated by the host and Bible guide, Pastor Paul Carter. If you'd like to follow along you can find a copy of the 2 year RMM plan on our RMM Plan Page.
Given the intended time line, we will use the second year of the 2 year RMM Reading Plan for 2017. This will mean that on January 3rd 2017 we will be discussing Ezra 3 and Acts 3.
In the 2 year RMM plan the reader works through the entire New Testament and Psalms and half of the Old Testament each year. Over the course of 2 years you will read the New Testament twice, the Psalms twice and the Old Testament once.
As our tagline suggestions, Into The Word is committed to reading, loving and living the whole counsel of God. And may God alone be glorified.
