It was a memory exercise.
That is how they did it.
Keep my commands and you will live; guard my teachings as the apple of your eye.Bind them on your fingers; write them on the tablet of your heart. Proverbs 7:2-3 New International Version
In the days of Jesus, they didnít have the internet or mobile phones. In the early days before Jesus the people taught their children to memorize the scripture. Before a child could take his Bar Mizoh he had to know the first five books of the Old Testament by heart. That practice is still done today.
So when they disciples were sharing with the people they had sharp minds and could remember almost everything. This was carried on for many centuries until they were written down.
If you are old enough maybe you can remember the first man landing on the moon. You can remember where you were when you watched it and everybody that was there.
If we can remember that after a few decades donít you think people would remember something even more important as the things they saw and heard Jesus say?
That is why it is important to memorize Bible verses to carry with you though out the day. I personally have about five that not only are they recited but are written down and carried with me.
Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit Rabbi (Holy Spirit our teacher) for teaching me to memorize important words of wisdom from God holy book of guidance, the Bible and carrying them with me throughout the day. I give thanks in the name of the greatest teacher Jesus Christ. Amen
May the sweet sunshine of Jesus' precious love bless you today and every day.
