Podcasts exist for almost any niche, and Scripture memory is no exception.
If you’re the kind of person who love to memorize the Bible, there’s good news and bad news. The good news is that there are a few Bible memory podcasts out there, but the choices are limited. Why?
- Just as we might start out strong in our determination to memorize scripture, many podcasts on scripture memory started out strong during the pandemic year, and then quickly ﬁzzled out.
- There are some individual episodes within podcasts that are very encouraging on the subject of scripture memory, but that is not the main subject of the podcast.
- Many scripture memory podcasts focus on rote learning–on the theory that hearing the verse(s) over and over will aid in the memory of the verses. So instead of focusing on Bible memory per se, they’re actually just saying a passage over and over again.
Let’s take a look at some of the best Scripture memory podcasts (and podcast episodes) that are available for you to listen to.
The Best Scripture Memory Podcasts
The following are the only two active podcasts worth adding to your listening rotation. They both offer great resources, interviews and plenty of actionable tips for your Scripture memory journey.
