Scripture Mastery-Old Testament


The past couple of weeks,I have shared that when my son started high school, I was most excited that he would be able to start attending Seminary. I knew that getting to have an hour of spiritual instruction each school day would help him to make correct choices and help him to stay close to his Father in Heaven.

I was not surprised to have him love attending each school day and love the whole Seminary experience. What did surprise me was that though they have Scripture Mastery, they don't have quite as many to master as I did back in the day. Where I had 40 scriptures to master and learn each year, the kids now have 25 to learn.

I am one of those people that likes to know exactly what is different and make comparisons. So I made myself a chart and compared the list from back when I was in Seminary to the new list that my son is learning. I thought perhaps you might enjoy seeing the difference in each year and maybe you'll want to take the personal challenge to learn ALL of the scriptures from each list.

I have already posted the scriptures for the Book of Mormon and the Doctrine and Covenants courses. You will find a link to those articles at the bottom of this one. This week, I am sharing the scriptures for the Old Testament course. For the Old Testament, I learned that there are 14 scriptures that are on both of the lists. That leaves 26 from the old scripture mastery list and then there are 11 new scriptures to learn on the new list. If you are now a bit lost, there are a total of 51 scriptures between the two lists that you can learn and study and master. There are a couple of the scriptures that overlap each other on the lists. I counted those as different as they are not exactly the same as before. And interestingly, there are two that are on the new list that used to be on the Doctrine and Covenants list.

Here is the NEW list of Scripture Mastery for the Doctrine and Covenants that the kids will be learning in Seminary:

Moses 1:39
Moses 7:18
Abraham 3:22–23
Genesis 1:26–27
Genesis 2:24
Genesis 39:9
Exodus 19:5–6
Exodus 20:3–17
Joshua 24:15
1 Samuel 16:7
Psalm 24:3–4
Psalm 119:105
Psalm 127:3
Proverbs 3:5–6
Isaiah 1:18
Isaiah 5:20
Isaiah 29:13–14
Isaiah 53:3–5
Isaiah 58:6–7
Isaiah 58:13–14
Jeremiah 1:4–5
Ezekiel 37:15–17
Amos 3:7
Malachi 3:8–10
Malachi 4:5–6

Now, if you want to compare and add in the older Scripture Mastery scriptures for the Old Testament, here is the list that I learned when we were learning 40 each year:

Genesis 1:26-27
Genesis 14:20
Genesis 17:4-7
Genesis 39:9
Genesis 49:22
Exodus 20:3-8, 12-17
Exodus 28:1
Exodus 33:11
Deuteronomy 4:2
Deuteronomy 7:3, 6-7
Deuteronomy 18:18-22
Joshua 24:15
Ruth 1:16-17
1 Samuel 15:22
1 Samuel 16:7
1 Kings 18:21
1 Chronicles 29:29
Job 19:25-26
Psalms 24:3-4
Proverbs 13:1
Proverbs 3:5-6
Isaiah 1:18
Isaiah 2:2-3
Isaiah 8:19-20
Isaiah 9:6
Isaiah 14:12-15
Isaiah 24:5-6
Isaiah 29:13-14
Isaiah 55:8-9
Isaiah 58:13-14
Jeremiah 1:4-5
Jeremiah 16:16-21
Ezekiel 37:15-17
Daniel 2:28, 44
Joel 2:28-32
Amos 3:7
Amos 8:11-12
Amos 9:8-9
Malachi 3:8-10
Malachi 4:5-6

Now, if you don't want to take the time to compare the two lists, and just want to know all 51 scriptures, I have that figured out for you too.

Here are the 14 scriptures that are on both lists:

Genesis 1:26–27
Genesis 39:9
Joshua 24:15
1 Samuel 16:7
Psalm 24:3–4
Proverbs 3:5–6
Isaiah 1:18
Isaiah 29:13–14
Isaiah 58:13–14
Jeremiah 1:4–5
Ezekiel 37:15–17
Amos 3:7
Malachi 3:8–10
Malachi 4:5–6

Here are the 26 from the old list that are not on the new list:

Genesis 14:20
Genesis 17:4-7
Genesis 49:22
Exodus 20:3-8, 12-17
Exodus 28:1
Exodus 33:11
Deuteronomy 4:2
Deuteronomy 7:3, 6-7
Deuteronomy 18:18-22
Ruth 1:16-17
1 Samuel 15:22
1 Kings 18:21
1 Chronicles 29:29
Job 19:25-26
Proverbs 13:1
Isaiah 2:2-3
Isaiah 8:19-20
Isaiah 9:6
Isaiah 14:12-15
Isaiah 24:5-6
Isaiah 55:8-9
Jeremiah 16:16-21
Daniel 2:28, 44
Joel 2:28-32
Amos 8:11-12
Amos 9:8-9

And finally, here are the 11 scriptures that are on the new list, but not the old list:

Moses 1:39
Moses 7:18
Abraham 3:22–23
Genesis 2:24
Exodus 19:5–6
Exodus 20:3–17
Psalm 119:105
Psalm 127:3
Isaiah 5:20
Isaiah 53:3–5
Isaiah 58:6–7

Just like the past couple of weeks, this doesn't get you much except for some extra blessings for learning more scriptures. And of course you still have more material for those "When I was your age" stories. It does make for some interesting conversation around the dinner table.
