Reading Plans in ScripturePlus were released today on iOS (Android to follow soon), in time for Holy Week and Good Friday. Reading Plans have been a long anticipated feature in ScripturePlus, that will allow students of the scriptures to engage with the Holy Word of God in new ways.

Reading Plans are structured, step-by-step guides to scripture study. These plans are split up into easy-to-digest sections with specific assignments. An assignment may have passages of scripture to read, short videos, questions to ponder, and commentary on that section’s topic. These Reading Plans are designed to help you have meaningful and productive scripture study by providing you with readily accessible ideas and resources for a particular topic of study.

Reading Plans currently available in ScripturePlus include

  • The Events of Holy Week
  • The Birth of Christ
  • Prophecies of the Birth of Christ

Many more plans are anticipated to populate ScripturePlus soon, including

  • Understanding the Restoration
  • Doctrinal Mastery
  • The Covenant Path in the Bible and the Book of Mormon
  • Women in the Genealogy of Jesus
  • Preach My Gospel study guide

How to Use Reading Plans

Users can access Reading Plans in ScripturePlus through the left-hand menu, as illustrated below. Users can browse new plans for their personal study, or keep track of their progress on plans they’re currently studying.

Once you select a plan to study, you can read information about the plan and the plan’s author. Upon starting the plan, you are presented with your plan’s home page, where you can keep track of your progress and browse all the reading assignments in that plan.

Future Development

ScripturePlus has big plans for the Reading Plans feature. While only a few plans are available now, we anticipate adding many, many more plans as we innovate and collaborate with top students of the scriptures.

In addition to these “Topical” Reading Plans, ScripturePlus is developing “Calendrical” Reading Plans, that will allow you to study assignments in conjunction with a calendar or day-by-day sequence. For example, Book of Mormon Central’s Resource Guides for Come, Follow Me 2020 will be fashioned into a 365-day Reading Plan for studying 2020’s Come, Follow Me curriculum.
