Each Week on Saturday, I’ll be asking a “Question of the Week.” I’d love your input and discussion! Ask a good question in the comments and it may show up as the next week’s question! I may answer the questions in the comments myself.
Least-Read Bible Book
Recently, I asked what your favorite book of the Bible is. But we all know there are some books of the Bible with which we have little familiarity beyond their names. Over at The Overview Bible, there is this fascinating post on the 10 least-read books of the Bible (at least according to Bible Gateway). In light of that:
What’s your least-read book of the Bible? Why do you think you haven’t read it as much? Was it on the linked list? How might you dedicate some time to getting into God’s Word more? How might you encourage others to read some of the least-accessible books?
I think these are all questions we should tackle as Christians. We should try to dive into God’s Word as much as possible. Each word is there for a reason, inspired by God. Thus, let’s share some confessions here and then seek to get into the Word more.

Question of the Week– Check out other questions and give me some answers!
As a whole, my least read book of the Bible is Leviticus. Why? Probably because it is so focused on the law, or maybe because it also focuses on the sacrificial system under the Law. Since Jesus is our perfect sacrifice, and we no longer have a need for the blood bulls, lambs, or doves, I guess Leviticus loses some significance for me. Now, having said that, I have read Leviticus a number of times, but I confess that I have only read chapter 1-9 of 1 Chronicles once in my life, and that was just to prove I had done it. The endless genealogy bores me out of my skull.
