Unofficial Bible Bowl Pathfinder 2019
Luke Memorization Guide


Welcome to the Ready Answers Bible Memorization Curriculum. Unofficial Study Guides for the PBE 2019 Book of Luke

The Ready Answers Bible Memorization Program is designed to help you memorize Bible passages easily and quickly. It is based on many well-proven strategies for memorizing. From this page you can get our material designed to help prepare for tests on the Gospel According to Luke. This should be helpful for tests such as the 2019 Pathfinder Bible Experience or Bible Bowl events. It is also helpful for any study of this book. On other web pages at this site, we also have memorization guides for other books of the Bible.

As the primary delivery method we selected ePub and Anki file formats because of the features these formats enable. We explain these features and how to use them on a variety of platforms below in the section ePub and Anki file formats.

Team Organization

To help you decide what portions of the material to assign to each student, please consider our analysis presented in the General Information section in all of the memorization guides or click Team Organization here.

The same information is in each of these formats; so, once you decide which column you want, just download all the chapters that you need from that column.

  • ePub - Select this if you want it to read the book to you so you can hear it. However, the ePub readers for mobile devices are slow when using hyperlinks and sometimes the picture you want to see is on a different page than the relevant text.
  • pdf with hyperlinks - Select this if you frequently want to follow the hyperlinks within the guide or if you want to be sure the right picture and text are seen together. However, I don't know of a PDF viewer that will read the book to you so you can listen while you concentrate on the pictures.
  • pdf for printing- Select this if you want to print the guides and study from paper copies. This format doesn't include the internal hyperlinks; however, it does have an index at the back of the book.

Electronic Flash Cards

This chart provides the flash cards for each section of Luke. When answering the questions, try saying the words from the verse as the answer. This will help you answers questions that request the actual words of the verse.

The answer side of the cards in Anki format includes: the picture, a description of where to look in the picture to remember the phrase that answers the question, and the additional information for the verse that we also have in the study guides. In this way, you can get the full benefits of the study guides at the time you are studying the questions. These decks can also be downloaded directly from within Anki using the "get shared decks" option and searching for "ReadyAnswers" (with no space between the words).

Using ePub and Anki Files

We are providing the study materials in formats designed for easy use on mobile devices. We hope this will enable you to find more time to study and optimize the use of your study time. The ePub files enable you to jump to other places in the memorization guides quickly.

The memorization guides are in NKJV, RVR95, and LSG translations; and the original language text is the Greek New Testament from LBS. These guides fully comply with the ePub standard, but we have found some ePub readers work better than others. A section below explains how to load them onto your smart phones and PCs.

Using Anki Files

We put the questions in Anki format, because Anki provides the review schedule needed to make remembering things easy. We have found that the Anki approach is a lot more efficient than traditional study methods, especially when combined with the memory handles that we describe in the Memorization Guides files. You can either greatly decrease your time spent studying, or greatly increase the amount you learn in a given time period.

  1. To use these files, you'll need to install the Anki application. Be aware that there are other flashcard programs that can also use the Anki *.apkg file format. Since Anki for iPhones is not free, I tried AnkiApp and was dissapointed with the review schedule it uses. I don't recommend it. On most platforms you will probably want to install Anki before downloading the files, but on some Android phones I recommend that you download the files first using Firefox or a similar browser that gives you access to the downloaded files. Then install the Anki App and open each file from the view of dowloaded files to load them into Anki. When I tried downloading Anki first, I was getting errors that the slide deck was corrupted.
  2. Download the Anki flash card files for the chapters you want by clicking on each of the related *.apkg files.
  3. Before starting your first Anki session, decide how much time you want to spend each day using it. Limit your first Anki session to 1/4 of that amount of time.
  4. In the options for the deck, set the "New cards/day" to be no more than the number of new cards that you learned in that session. This will help ensure that you don't get overwhelmed later with the number of cards that will need to be reviewed.
  5. If you do find later, that you have too many cards to review anyway, I suggest you set the "new cards/day" to zero. Then after several days, when you are no longer overwhelmed, increase it slowly.
  6. The Anki manual explains how you can create filtered decks and how to move cards from one deck to another. To facilitate this, we have applied several tags to each card. Each card is assigned
    • a language tag (en, es, fr, iw, de)
    • a chapter tag (Luk01, Luk02, Luk03...)


Using ePub Files

We are providing the study materials in ePub format to enable easier use on moble devices and what we hope will be a better studying experience. This format enables better support for the original Biblical languages, and enables you to jump to other places in the material quickly.

The memorization guides are in NKJV, RVR95, and LSG translations; and the original language text is the Greek New Testament from LBS. These guides fully comply with the ePub standard, but we have found some ePub readers work better than others. In a subsequent section we explain what we have found to work well on several different platforms:

  • Android Devices (most phones that are not from Apple)
    • We are recommending either Google Play Books or Gitden, because we know they support the navigation buttons in the books, and they support reading the book out loud to the student. Gitden is slower when turning pages, but does not require a Google account.
    • The following video shows how to get the book into Google Play Books and explains the navigation buttons.
    • To use Google Play Books, the following steps are needed. This is all explained in the video above:
      1. From a laptop or PC, download the ePub files you want.
      2. Go to https://play.google.com/books. If you are asked to create a Google Account or to sign in to an existing Google Account, sign in and go to https://play.google.com/books again.
      3. Click the button "Upload files".
      4. Upload the files that you just downloaded from here.
      5. After the upload is complete, you might still need to wait a few hours for the cover pictures to be displayed in your Google Play "My Books".
      6. Install Google Play Books from the Play Store to your Android device.
      7. Next, open the Google Play Books app on your Android and open the book.
      8. We prefer the "Google Text-to-speech Engine". This can be set from Settings > Language & input > Text-to-speech output.

    • To use Gitden on Android devices:
      1. Install the Gitden Reader from the Play Store.
      2. Download the epub file(s) you desire. It doesn't matter which application you select to open the file by default, because Gitden won't open the file automatically, even if Gitden is selected as the default.
      3. Open the Gitden Reader.
      4. Tap on the triple-line icon in the upper left of the screen.
      5. Tap on "Import Books" and navigate to "/storage/emulated/0/Download".
      6. Tap on the epub files you want. A check-mark is placed on each one that you select.
      7. The import icon in the upper right of the screen shows the number of files selected. Tap it to import them.
      8. Tap on "<Import" to navigate back to your book shelves.
      9. Gitden provides instructions on how to use their reader, including read aloud or Text to Speech (TTS).
      10. We prefer the "Google Text-to-speech Engine". This can be set from Settings > Language & input > Text-to-speech output.
  • Apple iOS Devices (like iPhones and iPads)
    • The best we have found is Gitden. It supports all the navigation buttons and will read the book aloud to the student. Most iPhones have iBooks pre-installed. This supports the navigation buttons but does not read the book aloud to the student.
      1. From the App Store dowload and open Gitden
      2. Tap the triple-line button in the upper left of the screen and select Settings
      3. Since some Biblical phrases are in parentheses, you'll want to enable both "Read Aloud" and "Read Text in Parentheses"
      4. Using Safari, tap on the ePub file you want to use.
      5. If you are given an option to open in "iBooks" or "More..", choose "More..." Find and tap the icon for "Import with GitdenReader".
      6. You may need to wait 60 seconds for the book to appear in your Gitden book shelves.
      7. Gitden provides instructions on how to use their reader, including read aloud or Text to Speech (TTS).
      8. We have found that sometimes to get the read aloud feature to work, we need to start it on a page without buttons or pictures at the top of the page. Once it starts reading, stop it, then go to the page you really want it to read. Start the reading again.
  • MS Windows 10 (PCs and Desktops)
    • Windows 10 comes with Microsoft Edge as a web browser. It natively supports opening ePub files, including all the navigation buttons in our books. If you have Microsoft Edge version 40, it will even read the book aloud to you; however, it isn't perfect. Sometimes it displays the incorrect picture (the one for the next verse). It also dims the picture when it is reading. If you still want to try this and don't have Microsoft Edge version 10, first try to get it by updating Windows 10. If this doesn't work, get the Windows Creator's update. This will give you updates to Windows 10 that Microsoft is not yet ready to release to everyone. Then you can get into the Mirosoft Edge web browser and click on the ePub file you want to read on our web site. You will now be able to use all the navigation buttons, and can have Microsoft Edge read the book to you.
  • Other versions of Windows, Linux, and macOS
    • Try Calibre, but it doesn't support reading out loud. Please let us know if you find something better.



Verse Divisions

Some of the verses start in different phrases in the various translations in these memorization guides. Here are the ones we have found so far:

    The phrase "And John, Calling two of his disciples to him" is the last part of Luke 7:18 in RVR1995 but is the first part of Luke 7:19 in NKJV, LSG, and LBSGNT.
    The phrase "from Arimathea, a city of the Jews," is in Luke 23:50 in RVR1995 but in Luke 23:51 in NKJV, LSG, and LBSGNT.

Additional Information

Related to Luke 5:8, you might be surprised if you read An Estimate of the Value of Two Boatloads of Fish, As Recorded in Luke 5:1-11
