Don't read the Bible for information. Read it for relationship. What you need to know and what you need to learn the Holy Spirit will make clear to you and teach you, whether swiftly and in the moment, or slowly and over time. But make sure you come to the Bible to meet God and love him and worship him - don't come for data or statistical analysis or argument fodder or a printout of God's schematic for your life and the future of the planet. Come for him and everything else you need will fall into place at the proper time.
