Title: 15. How to Memorise Scripture
A page that explains a variety of approaches to Studying the Bible
This page introduces the subject of memorising Scripture, shows the value of doing it, and ways of going about doing it.
In a day when memorising things is fairly uncommon (unless you are an actor memorising a script), this practice may be quite difficult for many.
2. Why Memorise Scripture
Memorising Scripture has two particular benefits:
1. Short term
2. Long term
3. Going about Memorising Scripture
There are 3 stages in memorising Scripture:
1. Choosing the verse
2. Repeat the verse
3. Revisit the verses
Add a verse a day but repeat all previous verses. It is probable that you will have spells when you focus on memorising Scriptures.
Some people find they have a particularly good memory and can memorise entire chapters and even books.
Other people find it more difficult and so it that is you, simply chose memorable and meaningful specific verses from around the Bible.
Do what suits you.
