I have a coworker who is very knowledgeable on the Bible, and he told me right around the time I finished reading Mark, “Just skip Luke and go straight to John.” The reason for this is that John introduces a lot of new material per my understanding, but I’m anal retentive about this. If I’m gonna read & blog/review the Bible, I gotta read the whole thing. In order. So I went ahead with Luke, which throughout its 24 chapters demonstrated to me over and over again why my coworker had suggested to just skip it. I like to make things as difficult as possible for myself.
