As I mentioned in the last post that it would be a good thing to have a reading plan utilizing the New English Translation of the Septuagint (or NETS), I spent some time last night and this morning putting that plan together and editing the various pages of reading plans that I’ve mentioned over the last few days. The results are potentially quite satisfying. I’m going to work my way through the NETS plan this year, and work on refining it. If anyone else wishes to do so and would like to send me any improvements, please do so. I think we all want something that works well, for our own edification as well as for that of others.
So, the basic plan is found on this page: One-year NETS Bible Reading Plan. This plan includes columns of dates for years beginning on 1 January and on 1 September (the beginning of the Orthodox ecclesiastical year).
I have also added the NETS plan to the full plan worked out for the civil year 2009, which I mentioned in the previous post. The Psalms column is one that will need readjustment for Julian Calendar users. This plan is based on the Revised Julian Calendar. (This addition, due to my persnickety preference for nice-looking tables, has made the file rather large, so it may take a few seconds to fully download. If it doesn’t look right, just hit the reload button.)
