The mp3 recordings will hopefully help you to answer the question, \u201cwhat\u2019s going on\u201d, by giving you some background and explanation...but the second question is foryou to think and pray about - What\u2019s theon -goi ng truth and challenge that God is speaking to you through the passage? If you don\u2019t ever make time to ask yourself this second question, I promise that by week two you\u2019ll have lost interest! But if youdo make the time - if you set aside twenty to thirty minutes to think and pray about the passage, then I promise that you\u2019ll meet with God and hear Him speak.
Jesus.mp3 is a really simple challenge - to spend twenty to thirty minutes with God every day for eight weeks, reading through the story of Jesus as it\u2019s told in the Bible. Reading from Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, you can follow the story of Jesus\u2019 life through from beginning to end in just 48 short (ish) passages...meaning that if you read one a day Monday to Friday and then one each weekend, you can work through the whole story in eight weeks.
To make life a bit easier, all the passages are pre-recorded as mp3 files, which you can put on your computer or MP3 player. That means that you don\u2019t have to flick between books of the Bible to follow the readings through...and it means that you don\u2019t have to read them - you can just listen!
Him speak to you through it. Jesus was God on earth - God dressed as a man - and if you get to know His story, then you\u2019ll get to know God. So don\u2019t just focus on listening to the mp3s, instead focus on meeting with God. The whole \u201cjesus.mp3\u201d thing is just a gimmick - it\u2019s just a tool to help you connect with God. Because con- necting with God - meeting with Him and hearing His voice - is what it\u2019s really all about...because doing that will change your life.
Each mp3 file begins with an explanation of where you\u2019ve got to in the story, fol- lowed by the Bible readings for that day, read from the New Century Version. The NCV is published as the \u201cInternational Children\u2019s Bible\u201d, and as the \u201cYouth Bible\u201d, and it\u2019s really easy to read and understand. After reading through the passage, the reader will talk a bit about what\u2019s going on in the story, and then suggest you press \u201cpause\u201d and take some time out to read the passage for yourself (or re-play it from the mp3), and try to listen to what God might be saying to you through that particu- lar passage. Why not have a notebook handy to write down anything that jumps out at you, or that you feel challenged about, or that you feel God speaks to you about? Finally, the mp3 recording will end with a quick \u201cthought for the day\u201d type thing based on something from that day\u2019s readings.
When you\u2019re reading from the Bible, it\u2019s really helpful to thing through two ques- tions: Firstly, what\u2019s going on...and secondly, what\u2019s on-going? In other words, thing about what\u2019s being said in the passage - think about what\u2019s going on, the his- torical context, the background and why the passage was written. Then think about
