Land of Law
This is a visual Bible Memory Tool. Your first stop is the Land of Law. There are five towns here. You will recognize their names. They are Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy.
The Land of History has 12 towns. They are Joshua, Judges, Ruth, 1 Samuel, 2 Samuel, 1 Kings, 2 Kings, 1 Chronicles, 2 Chronicles, Ezra, Nehemiah, and Esther.
There's only one street in Joshua. It's called Zero Street. Every town has Zero Street. Streets refer to the hundred's place in the chapter of the Book you're trying to remember. Joshua has only 24 chapters, so it's hundred's place is Zero.
If we were looking up Psalms 150, we'd to to the Town of Psalms and go to 100th Street. Houses are represented by the tens place in the Chapter reference. We'd visualize going to the 5th house on 100 street since we're looking up Psalm 150.
The Land of Prophets is complicated. It's divided into the North and South. The north holds 5 towns (major prophets), and the south holds 12 towns (minor prophets). I think by now, you're beginning to understand how this works. If I'm looking something up in Malachi, I'd visualize going to the South in the Land of Prophets to the Town of Malachi. It's a small town with 1 street ("Zero Street") with only 1 house. That 1 house has 4 floors. The singles digits in Chapters represents floors on the house. Malachi has 4 chapters, so it has 4 floors. To look up Malachi 4:1, you'd go to the 4th floor.
The Land of the Gospels has 5 towns: Matthew, Mark, Luke, John and Acts. If I were trying to look up Acts 5:1, I'd go to the town of Acts, to Zero Street, to the 1st house, and up to the 5th floor. There are 42 doors on that floor. In the first bedroom lives greedy Ananias, and his wimpy wife lives in the 2nd bedroom.
"(1) But a man named Ananias, with his wife Sapphira, sold a piece of property, (2) and kept back some of the price for himself, with his wife’s full knowledge, and bringing a portion of it, he laid it at the apostles’ feet."
I bet now you'll always know what Acts 5:1-2 are about!
This is how some amazing memory moguls remember massive bodies of information. Now you can too.
The Land of Letters has 21 towns. In the East are 13 Gentile towns. In the West are 8 Jewish towns. The Easterners and Westerners love each other, and they are penpals. But since there are so many more in the East, the penpals in the West have to write almost twice as often to keep up with all their Eastern friends!
I hope you'll test this and try this on your own now. If you were to teach your visual children always using this memory device, and have them always visualize what Land they are going to (what major division of the Bible), they will remember their divisions of the Bible, and what towns are there (Books), how many streets, houses, and floors are there (chapters), and how many bedrooms are on each floor (verses). Help them imagine whose behind each door, and this will help them remember the theme to that verse.
This memory tools will blow your mind. Oh, and the Land of Prophesy is so important, there's only 1 town: Revelation!
