Unofficial Bible Bowl Pathfinder 2019
Luke Memorization Guide


Welcome to the Ready Answers Bible Memorization Curriculum for the PBE 2019 Book of the Bible!

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 these books. 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.

Electronic Flash Cards

This chart provides the Anki flash cards for each student's primary and secondary assignment. The cards start with questions about the vererses. The later cards use the pictures for the verses to help you learn the verse references and the entire content of the verses. When answering the questions, try say words from the verse as the answer. This will help you answers questions that request the actual words of the verse.

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.
