Teaching Statistics

Every May I evaluate the progress I've made toward my goal to teach through the entire Bible 3 times during my years in pastoral ministry. I'm making decent progress through phase 1. Here are the updated numbers:

32.4% of the Bible (+12.2%)

26.4% of the Old Testament (+10%)
26.8% of the Pentateuch (+4.3%)
26.5% of the Historical Books (+18.1%)
30.5% of the Poetical Books (+7.9%)
22.0% of the Prophets (+8.4%)

53.9% of the New Testament (+20.1%)
46.2% of the Gospels/Acts (+19%)
40.2% of the Pauline Epistles (+33.3%)
91.1% of the Non-Pauline Epistles (+1.8%)

*The numbers are slightly less than accurate in that not all my teaching is covered, some being 'topical'. Currently I am teaching through Acts, spiritual disciplines, essential christianity, post-exilic Israel (Ezra, Nehemiah, Esther, Haggai, Zechariah, Malachi), and Romans.
