Man who memorized 20 Bible books to teach at Creation Museum
A man known for memorizing 20 books of the Bible has started volunteering at the Museum of Creation teaching visitors his methods of memorizing scriptures.
Tom Meyer, professor at Shasta Bible College from Redding, Calif., began volunteering at the museum in Petersburg, Kentucky, in early June, overseeing classes and workshops.
In an interview with The Christian Post, Meyer said he conducts “workshops to teach Saints across the country how to memorize the scriptures and the benefits that come from this ancient discipline.”
Meyer, who has volunteered at the museum in the past, said he and his family moved to Kentucky for the job, and he will continue to teach Shasta through online classes.
“After ministering in California for a decade dramatically speaking God’s Word from memory at a different local church each Sunday and teaching students how to memorize scripture at Shasta Bible College, our family of six was at crossroads,” he explained.
“After praying to know where God wanted us to go, He opened a door as clear as day for our family to move to northern Kentucky to volunteer full-time at the Creation Museum and Ark Encounter, the main ministry of the biblical creation to the world.”
One of the things Meyer will do at the museum for guests is to dramatically recite the Genesis account of Noah’s Flood from memory.
“I also teach guests from around the world in one of the daily discovery programs what I have learned about memorization in the Holy Land and inspire them to hide the Word of God in their hearts too,” said- he added.
Meyer told CP he hopes he can “use the gifts God has given me for His glory and with the greatest impact.”
“I will be able to encourage more believers on the importance of memorizing the scriptures here than anywhere else in the world due to the multitude of guests visiting,” Meyer said.
The Creation Museum was founded in 2007 by Answers in Genesis, a Christian apologetics group that adheres to a Young Earth creationist view of the origins of life.
In early 2020, USA Today’s 10 Best Readers’ Choice Awards ranked the Creation Museum and its sister attraction, the Ark Encounter, as the the first two religious museums in the United States.
Ark Encounter, which features a life-size replica of Noah’s Ark, was ranked No. 1, while the museum was ranked No. 2. The Washington, DC-based Museum of the Bible ranked third.
