Scripture Mastery

Correction: The Scripture Mastery page is actually on the Church Educational System website. I got to it from the Church website by going to the "A-Z Index" and clicking on Scripture Mastery, but it takes you to the CES website. Just wanted to clear that up! Either way, you will find it.

The new church website has a page for Scripture Mastery. Having joined the church as an adult, I missed out on a lot of things that the young people study. This page has PDF files of the cards and also MP3 downloads. There is a link to a place to purchase the cards, as well. In addition, the Scripture Mastery verses are divided by which standard work they appear in.

The cards contain the featured verse, the historical setting, the doctrinal teaching, missionary application, and personal application. Very nice! I'm sure this is old hat to many of you, so pardon my pleasure in finding this!

Anything that can increase one's knowledge and understanding of the scriptures is a plus in my eyes.

From this same page, there are tabs for bookmarks, reading charts, study guides, and downloads. If you missed out on seminary, as I did, you might enjoy exploring this page for help with your scripture study.

These last two posts are great resources! I have a friend who spent hours preparing for each Seminary lesson for her students.

I joined the Church at 19 and out of high school. I am an Institute Graduate!

Good for you, Barb! I took an institute class or two when I was in singles ward, but the rest has just been to study on my own. Those manuals are great reference books, too.

I came across your blog on www.mormon-blogs.com. I'm a convert too. I joined when I was 22. I see that you are trying to learn the scripture mastery scriptures. I wanted to let you know about www.ldsscripturemastery.net. You can get a daily email of the scripture mastery scriptures. I thought it might be a useful tool for you.
