The much anticipated Bible Reading Marathon begins today in Washington DC and will run until September 16.
The event will take place at the Faith & Liberty headquarters where speakers will begin reading from Genesis 1:1 at 2:00 p.m. EST.
After 90 continuous hours of reading, the marathon is set to conclude Wednesday morning at 10:00 a.m. with the reading of Revelation 22.
Due to COVID-19, the 5-day marathon was postponed from its usual springtime reading to late summer.
Seedline International, a Bible distribution ministry in Brazil, Indiana, began facilitating the event in 2019. Keith Davidson, director of Seedline, said the purpose of the event is to “exhort our nation to return to Biblical principles.”
Hundreds of people from around the world will have an opportunity to read the Scriptures during the event either in person or online. Seedline will also provide Bibles in over 100 languages, allowing guests from other countries to participate in the marathon by using their native language.Continue reading on CBNNEWS
