[quote:348nj5d4]I have never heard this before. I was always told to start with Mark because it is the shortest Gospel and because it was the New Testament, which does not contain the difficulties of the Old Testament concerning the nature of God and His love.[/quote:348nj5d4]
I’ve heard the exact same thing as you. And that’s why I read the New Testament first and I am still working on the Old Testament. I immediately had a deeper love for God after reading the gospels first. Don’t get me wrong, the OT is great too.
