I have enjoyed reading a Bible that doesn’t have the traditional chapter and verse numbering system. It does have a draw back in that it makes it harder to refer to the passages that you are reading – though on the bottom of each page it does give the chapter and verse ranges.
Through my reading, I have become convinced that the traditional chapter breakdowns are wrong. I have written elsewhere about Luke 16 and believe that Luke 15:1 – 17:10 should be considered as one chapter and not two and a bit.
In my preparation for preaching on Romans 13 – I have concluded that the traditional chapter breakdowns are wrong. I believe that Romans 9 – 12 and 12:1 – 15:21 are considered to be complete chapters instead of being 5 separate chapters.
The plot thickens…
