Unofficial Pathfinder Bible Experience for 2024-2025
Romans, 1 Corinthians, and 2 Corinthians Memorization Guides

Welcome to the Ready Answers Bible Memorization Curriculum. Unofficial Study Guides for the PBE 2024-2025 year.

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 Biblical books of Romans, 1 Corinthians, and 2 Corinthians. This should be helpful for tests such as the 2025 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.

We supply unofficial study guides. For the official rules and instructions to register a team, please go the the official PBE site: https://nadpbe.org/

Study Guides in English, Spanish, and French

If the hyperlinks in these study guides don't work, please try using Acrobat reader. This is often necessary on phones.

The "initials" study guides provide the initial letter of each word to help students confirm they are correctly recalling the verses. Once students have mastered reciting the verses using this, they will want to advance to using the "blanks". These study guides have a blank for each word of the verses except for the most commonly used words. These very common words like "an", "the", "of" are provided as clues. We hope this will help students who have mastered reciting the verses using the Initials to speed their process in completely memorize the verses.

Team Organization

You will probably want to consider carefully who on the team should be responsible for which portions of this year’s material. Since some chapters are smaller than others and some books are smaller than others. This year there is very little similarity between verses, but if there are, they can be difficult for one person to be ready to answer questions on both. Assigning students to each learn the same number of chapters might not be the best strategy. The tables below show our recommended assignments. The goals we had were:

  • Each assignment should be about the same size as the other assignments. This is to help spread the effort equally across the team members.
  • To simplify remembering who is responsible for which verse, each student should generally be responsible for as few blocks of verses as possible. This is often in conflict with the other goals so a balance must be selected.
  • We consider if the content of two verses is similar. We try to assign these verses to different team members, because many people have difficulty memorizing two passages that are nearly identical. This year there aren't any good examples of this. They have almost the same message and use almost the same words, but they are not identical.
  • Each verse should be assigned to one student as a primary responsibility and to a second student as a secondary responsibility. This enables the students to consult with each other during the tests and help each other remember the details required to answer the questions. Also, if one student unexpectedly is not able to participate, the remaining team members are prepared to answer the questions.
  • Each student should have a study partner that leverages the primary and secondary responsibilities. This way, if the full team can't get together for every practice session, pairs of students can meet and study effectively.

Suppose the team members are Alex, Adam, Lexi, Jordan, Jeffrey, and Noah. Also suppose that Alex and Jeffrey will be partners, Adam and Jordan will be partners, and that Lexi and Noah will be partners. The table below shows that Alex has the primary responsibility for Romans 1-7, and Jeffrey has secondary responsibility for these same chapters.

The verse numbers on this page are using the verse number used in NKJV. Please note that the verse numbering for 2 Corinthians 13:12-14 is different in NKJV and RVR1995 than it is in LSG. The LSG translation includes verse 13 at the end of verse 12. As a result NKVJ verse 14 is LSG verse 13.

Fund Raising

Some teams plan for success by raising the funds early to ensure they will be able to go the the final NAD testing level. One very successful fund-raising idea is to have a 30-day verse memorizing event. Students can ask sponsors to contribute $1 per verse for 30 verses that they learn within those 30 days. Some people even pledge to give $2 per verse if they learn 60 verses. This not only funds the trips, it also can be a great incentive to get ready for the tests.
