Last month I began releasing my first audio recordings of me reading the New Testament. I started in modest fashion with some of the shortest chapters in the Bible. Today I am sharing my second set of readings, this time with nine more chapters available for download.
These include all of the New Testament books that are three chapters in length,
- 2 Thessalonians
- 2 Peter
These come out to 21 minutes and 19 seconds of audio and contain some great teachings in each book. The first chapter of 2 Thessalonians presents the apostle Paul’s strong warning for those who do not know God, and do not obey the Gospel. Titus chapter 2 has the great instructions on the expectations for older and younger men and women. Finally, 2 Peter includes similar teachings to those that are found in the letter of Jude, but also comments on growing in godliness and love. All of these are important to heed and worthy of acceptance.
As in my prior recordings, I announce the name of each book prior to reading them. However, one difference about my readings than most others is that I don’t actually say the chapter number that a listener is on. This is intentional. Although chapter divisions are a helpful aid, most earlier copies of the Scriptures do not contain them. They were devised at a later date. I prefer to allow chapters to flow from one another without interruption. As such, these books only say what you are listening to at the beginning of each. There are no explicit statements for chapters two or three. I intend to continue this practice with followup releases as well.
The next audio recordings will be of the four-chapter books, such as Philippians and Colossians.
Note: These audio recordings were updated on March 28, 2021. Several months after doing these, I decided to increase the amount of time between pauses in the text. This made it so that these 9 chapters increased in length from 20 minutes and 58 seconds to 21 minutes and 19 seconds. The information listed below has been updated to reflect this change, along with the link to the new zip file. The old zip file is no longer available on this website. The sample linked below is from the old version of these files.
