READING - red'-ing (miqra'; anagnosis): As a noun occurs once in the Old Testament (Neh 3:8) and 3 times in the New Testament (Acts 13:15; 2 Cor 3:14; 1 Tim 4:13), each time with reference to the public reading of the Divine Law. The verb "to read" (qara'; anaginosko) occurs frequently both in the Old Testament and in the New Testament: (1) often in the sense of reading aloud to others, especially of the public reading of God's Law or of prophecy, as by Moses (Ex 24:7), Ezra (Neh 8:3,18), Jesus in the synagogue at Nazareth (Lk 4:16), of the regular reading of the Law and the Prophets in the synagogues (Acts 13:27; 15:21), and of the reading of apostolic epistles in the Christian church (Col 4:16; 1 Thess 5:27); (2) also in the sense of reading to one's self, whether the divine word in Law or prophecy (Dt 17:19; Acts 8:28-30, etc.), or such things as private letters (2 Ki 5:7; 19:14; Acts 23:34, etc.).
