Many people like to act as if they know the Bible because they can quote single verses which seemingly back up their idea. However, many times they really don't. The verses just seem to because they're taken out of context or the background is not understood or discussed. If you want to learn and memorize the Bible AND keep everything in context, you can try something which was recently recommended to me at my own Bible study class. It's simply, although not so easy: read each book of the Bible twenty times. Choose one, then read it each day until you have read it twenty times. You will remember the verses, you will understand the overall context of the book, and you will see how you will learn things and gain fresh ideas every time you read it. You can journal your discoveries or just bask in the Word.
