    I created this mnemonic for my kids. I hope you don't mind my posting this but I thought it might help some people concerned with an easy method of memorizing the new testament order.

    Although right correction gives every person concerned the time to pray, Herod jailed penitent John judiciously reversed.

    :confused:

    I don't even see an M for Matthew. What am I missing here?

    I thnk he left out the gospels. It works if you start with Acts.

    I thought they were kidding, simply if you see the letter 'a' you should have thought to look for a book that starts with 'a'.

    I'm sorry, I should have been more clear. I hope it helps out somebody, please let me know if it does. That mnemonic took me close to 3 hours to finish and ironically the last word to fix was the first, "although."

    I might do one for the Old Testament also, in some near future.

    The assumption is that everybody remembers Matthew, Mark, Luke, John. Well, Mnemonic Method, that takes care of the first 2 M's ... now if I could only come up with L something, J something then we could put a colon : and follow it with Frank's sentence......................................... oh well I thought I had an idea ...

    Doh! I'm usually quick to catch on but the title does say it was a mnemonic for the new testament Bible.

    Believe it or not, I often think of Luke as the last Gospel because Acts comes right after the Gospels and I know he wrote both. Maybe the added mnemonic will help.
