Act like eyewitnesses to Jesus’ story, the greatest story ever told. Word By Heart helps you know Jesus personally and share him in an unique way by using the exact words of the Gospels. You’ll experience Him through your own imagination… as if you literally walked with him and saw the withered hand made whole.


Can you imagine Paul under house arrest in Rome, dictating his famous letter to the Philippians? What did it sound like? How would he have said it? How would you say it to people you care about? We will use the tools of an actor and exegete to explore Paul’s words in order to speak them with the same passion and conviction, with the same joy and love he had for his brothers and sisters. Students will not “play” Paul like an actor. However, we will communicate his ideas—word for word from memory—as we ourselves would in his place. We will imaginatively experience his circumstances and make sensible guesses at his reasoning and feelings. Speaking only the words of Philippians, we will give our listeners a deeper understanding of the richness of God’s Word. In just a few weeks, you can remember Philippians word for word—without memorizing. It’s true. We don’t memorize verses; we understand the ideas, in the exact words of the author.
