Memory Project #2: Ephesians
Since moving 1000 miles, I have temporarily set aside the memorization of Romans [but only temporarily] and have substituted a more manageable and timely goal: Ephesians.
It is more manageable because, unlike the mammoth 433 verses/9,495 words of Romans, Paul's letter to the Saints at Ephesus is a trim 155; 3,012 words in NKJV, or 3,014 in the ESV [~2,422 in Greek]. It can be read aloud or recited in under twenty minutes.
It is more timely because I have returned to teaching and am heading up a Sr Elective Bible class on Ephesians and Ethics at Rocky Bayou Christian School here in Niceville, FL. The whole class [16 students + me] are going to be memorizing it this year. The sooner I get to it the better. I'll try to provide updates as I go.
