God tells us in 2 Timothy 3:14-17:
“But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, and how from infancy you have known the holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.”
We will be memorizing verses from the Bible (ESV) and parts of Luther’s Small Catechism (originally written for parents to use to teach their children the basic teachings of the Bible). Verses will either be done orally, written, or fill in the blank. We will be reviewing many of the same verses throughout the year.
You are responsible for three new verses and one review verse per week most weeks of the school year. You may have choice upon the order in which you memorize the verses and the day in which you say them. I encourage you to say at least 1 a day. If memory work turned in by the time you are called to deliver, it is considered late. Oral memory will be said out loud to the teacher. Written memory is due on the last day of the week with a guardian signature.
