The Essential 100 Bible Verses

How are you going to take up the E100?

The E100 is an invitation to read 100 of the most essential texts of the Bible. Together, these scriptures tell the big picture of the Bible. St. Paul’s will spend 10 weeks this Fall reading through the Old Testament, and then 10 weeks on the New Testament being in January.

Read or listen to the E100. Follow the bookmark shared below as it outlines the reading schedule. You can also listen to it through the St. Paul’s website or through any podcast software (iTunes, Google Play, Spotify, or Podcast News). If you choose to listen through the St. Paul’s website, visit the sermons tab and filter by speaker. Set the speaker to E100 and the series will populate for you to begin listening.
