33rd annual National Bible Reading Marathon begins

Organisers at this year's National Bible Reading Marathon

The 33rd annual National Bible Reading Marathon has begun. Volunteers are expected to read the Bible from beginning till the end throughout the four days of the event. The 2022 edition of the event which is being organized by Seedline International, began on Saturday, April 30.

The event is holding at the Faith and Liberty headquarters in Washington, D.C., United States of America. The event is expected to round up on Wednesday with the reading from the book of Revelation.

Director of Seedline International, Keith Davidson, told The Christian Post that the National Bible Reading Marathon is usually held at the West Terrace of the U.S. Capitol. However, in the last two years, there was a change in venue. The reason was due to the COVID-19 pandemic and concerns raised over the safety of participants after the Capitol riot on January 6, 2021.

Some people will participate in the event virtually around the Capitol. Davidson said that he is expecting that the same number of people that attended the event last year will also attend this year’s event. The restrictions on COVID-19 have been lifted. This means that there may be an increase in the number of attendees.


In 2021, Davidson said that he expected about 25 or 50 persons present at the Faith and Liberty Headquarters. This year, he has predicted that there will be a great turn out in the coming days.

Besides, he said that the purpose of the Bible Reading Marathon is to enable Americans realize the impact of “the words of the Bible in our history and the founding of our country and to get them back to making it part of their lives and seeing how important it is. In addition, the event is an opportunity to openly express our faith and our beliefs in what the Bible stands for."
