Getting Started with Into the Word

Into The Word is an audio Bible commentary walking you verse by verse and chapter by chapter through the whole counsel of God. We began in 2017 and as of December 2023 we have covered more than 500 chapters of the Bible (roughly 42% of the 1189 chapters total), plus a number of topical and overview episodes. We also have more than 150 Life 100.3 episodes, which are radio adaptations of the podcast featuring the regular program audio plus application conversation between myself and Chris “Woody” Woodland. 

The regular podcast program is designed to be used as an aid to your Bible reading and study. Many people listen to the podcast with their Bibles open in front of them. As the passage is read and explained, they make notes in the margin or in a journal. Other people listen while driving to work, walking the dog or doing the dishes. However you use the material, the goal is to get you more immersed and more delighted in the unchanging Word of God.

To find the entire archive of episodes either explore the audio episodes on our site or download the Into The Word app at the iTunes store or on Google Play (see links in page footer).

You can listen to the episodes in any order you choose, however, our new and rerelease schedule follows the reading schedule associated with the Robert Murray M’Cheyne, or RMM Bible Reading Plan. To access the standard 1-year version of the RMM Plan click here. To read an article describing and commending the plan click here.

However you end up making use of these materials, I hope and pray that reading the Word of God becomes a lifelong habit and delight. The words of God are a gift to humankind:

“More to be desired are they than gold, even much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and drippings of the honeycomb. Moreover, by them is your servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward.” (Psalms 19:10–11 ESV)

Blessed are all those who meditate upon them.

Thanks be to God!
