Each year, when we start talking about Lent and Easter, we hear a familiar question from some Bible Gateway visitors: “What is Lent?” Is it an official Christian holiday? Was it instituted in the Bible? What does it mean to observe Lent, and are Christians “required” to do so? For the interested, we’ll try to answer those questions here.
Our Lent reading plan walks you through each of the four Gospels during the Lent season in preparation for Easter. If you’ve been thinking about spending more time in Scripture during Lent, this is a great way to do it.
Today is Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent—and it’s also the first day of our Lent reading plan! The Lent reading plan walks you through each of the four Gospels during the Lent season in preparation for Easter. Here’s how to access the Lent reading plan.
Beginning on Ash Wednesday (Wednesday, February 25), the Bible Gateway will kick off a Lent reading plan that covers all four Gospels in 40 days. Please consider joining us in reading through the Gospels during Lent!
