Welcome to the Ready Answers Bible Memorization Curriculum!
With this curriculum you can easily teach people ages 6 through adult
to be ready to answer questions about Biblical Christian doctrines as
understood by Seventh-day Adventists. We believe that people are most
eager to learn about our beliefs when they are curious enough to ask a
question. It is at these moments that your students can give the most
effective witness. Ideally, the answer will include a Bible passage,
its reference, and how it answers the
question. This requires having the verse and reference memorized, but this
is easier to do than you may think. Play the video to see how you can
easily memorize Psalm 91:11.
