    New Testament Scripture Challenge

    Weekly reading suggestions for the New Testament scripture challenge.

    Jesus told a story about a shepherd who loved his sheep and searched for one that was lost. This year you can learn more about Jesus’s teachings in the New Testament. Each time you do the weekly reading, color in the space for that number. If you read every week, you’ll finish by the end of the year!
