2013 Advent Guide and Reading Schedule

November 21, 2013

UPDATED FOR 2015: Check out the 2015 Advent Guide here!

Advent is a term originally derived from the Latin word adventus, meaning "coming" or "arrival". During Advent, the Christian church remembers Jesus' first coming and joyfully anticipates His second. From His lowly birth in a feed trough to His humble life among the people of Israel, Advent is a focused time to remember God's humility and faithfulness and to “fan the flame” of expectation for Jesus’ return to gloriously rule the earth from Jerusalem and to be worshipped as LORD by every living creature.

This year, Advent runs from Sunday, December 1st through Tuesday, December 24th.

I've put together a brief guide that provides a schedule of Scripture readings from the Gospels and from the Old Testament as well as several recommended short videos from my Opening Up the Gospels series. I hope it helps you to keep Jesus as your supreme treasure this holiday season.
