Read, reread, and read again. I have made only a small accomplishment in reading the biblical canon straight through from Genesis to Revelation two times. It takes me about 1 year and nine months to do this. I am currently in the duration of reading it a third time. The reason I specify it is a small accomplishment is because the greater challenge is living by the faith of Jesus to allow the word to work in your life with conviction that sin exists in your life and you need to be redeemed by the blood of the lamb. Read, reread, and read again is nothing. memorization is helpful. Living for Christ with conviction is priceless!!
Go to the outline at the front of each book. Write down the stories that are listed. Then memorize the stories. Genesis : Creation---Adam & Eve---The flood--- The nations---Abraham--- Isaac---Jacob---Joseph---.. Stories are easier to remember.
