On this program I try introducing you to a variety of Bible study methods to help you get the message in God’s Word. The Psalmist wrote about hiding God’s Word in his heart in Psalm 119:11. He talked about meditating on God’s Word day and night in Psalm 1:2. 

How does one best hide God’s Word in his heart so he can meditate on it day and night? The quick answer is to memorize it. If in our reading we are stimulated to look into a subject or portion more thoroughly we should use a study method to do so. 
If after we study it we want to remember more than the outline or application, we should memorize the material on which the outline and application is based. To start, memorize key verses that capture the truth you learned. 
For example, in reading and studying Mark 12:1-12, you could remember the material quite well by memorizing verses 10&11: “The stone the builders rejected has become the capstone; the Lord has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes.” This is from Psalm 118:22&23.   Peter refers to it in 1 Peter 2. Elements of this verse are found sprinkled throughout the Bible. It obviously presents an important truth. 
Jesus Christ is God’s precious Son, sent to be the Savior of men. He was rejected and killed just like the son in the parable in this portion. In the parable the Father or owner of the vineyard gives the vineyard to others, but the Son of God was raised from among the dead and became the capstone. It’s the Lord who did this and if you know him “It is marvelous in our eyes.” Right? Memorize that verse. It’s important.
