I would also suggest this, in the order Sarath suggested. Good sequence.

Watch the video "A short introduction to Buddism" by Bhikkhu Bodhi
Read Buddhism course. (Take about 12 hours to read and give you a good idea about the teaching)
a) Listen to the ten lecture series by Bhikkhu Bodhi
https://bodhimonastery.org/the-buddhas- ... it-is.html
b)Print a copy of this Dhamma Chart and refer to it while studying Buddhism.
c) Read Buddha’s Teaching by Narada. Start from chapter 15.

d) While you reading texts please listen to the following Dhamma Talk by Joseph Goldstein.
e) Start reading Sutta.
Good starting point would be to read Bikkhu Bodhi’s “In the Buddha’s Word”
Link to the summary:
Then read Sutta or listen to Central. Start from Majjhima Nikaya. https://suttacentral.net/mn
f) Last but not least practice what you learn.
