We were taught in ‘cemetery’ by the experts to begin a new Christian on Bible reading in the gospel of John–supposedly because beginning in Genesis and working through all the Bible in its order was too hard. The result of this, in my opinion, is that many never read the entire Bible and miss the continuing threads that connect the entire revelation, or they start their spiritual growth doctrinally stunted and ignorant of foundations in the Old Testament. The Book says “In the beginning God…” and that’s where we should begin.
