NOTE: In one sense, it is scarcely necessary to write a NOTE. The Reason is - that the “outline” inserted into the Interlinear text is almost self-explanatory. The idea for these outlines came to me first in 1945, after I ordered and received the 20 books or so either “by” or “on” Ivan Panin. When I read his introduction to his Greek Bible Numeric text, I found that Bible Numerics not only establishes what was the “original” Greek Text from among 7 quite complete NT Greek Manuscript copies, plus thousands of fragments - but also it establishes what are truesentences, sub-divisions, paragraphs and sections (chapter equivalents). I like to summarize, and thought - What if I summarize each sentence; gather these summaries into the sub-divisions; the sub-divisions into paragraphs; the paragraphs into section, and the sections into Books - What would I discover? What might be for me the first of the 27 NT books to put to this test? Why not Ephesians?
I was so amazed at the result, that I was “hooked”. I typed up the entire Numeric English NT, and hand-wrote the complete Greek text underneath clause by clause. Then I summarized the entire NT
I used Roman Numerals - for the Sections, or chapter equivalents.
Capital Letters - for Paragraphs
Arabic numbers - for Sub-divisions
Lower Case letters for Sentences
This produced an entirely different flavorfor each book of the NT! Check this out with the section above. It does notfollow the regular Chapter and Verse division as found in our King James and other translations.
To confirm the great importanceof this discovery by Panin through Bible Numerics - I received help in University summaries in 1946 through Jock Davidson, a fellow student at St. Andrews College of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. He was amused at my “grousing” because I wasn't receiving the grades in University subjects I felt I was capable of. He offered: “Come up to my room, give me an hour of your time - and I'll show you how to lift all your present grades by a full point. If you have a “C” - it will become a “B”; if a “B” - an “A”; if an “A”, and “A+”. I could scarcely believe him, but I thought, “I can afford an hour to give it a trial.”
“First of all”, he said, “when you take notes on class subjects, leave the upper ¼ of the right hand page blank. At the end of the day, summarize the left and right page into that corner. Two weeks before the exam, summarize the summary, and memorize it.
“When the exam comes up, and it says, Choose any 5 of the following 7 question, and answer fully in essay type answer, Don'tstart answering immediately. Instead, outlineeach of the 5 question you choose, leaving a space for the fuller answer later on. When all 5 are summarized, then go back to question one and start answering in essay style. If you don't finish this stage, not to worry. The professor will see by your summaries and the two or three answers you complete, that you know what you are doing. He'll be so glad that he doesn't have to read all 5 short essays, that he'll in gratitude give you and “A”!
“Summarize text books in the same manner as the lecture notes.
“For term papers, make a careful outline of the development you plan to use. Then write it up according to the outline at the top.”
Then he said “Of course, I myself don't follow this plan rigidly.” His room-mate piped up, “O yes he does! He's like a slave to the above!”
I followed Jock's above 4 suggestions, won 3 scholarship the next semester, and graduated “cum laude” (with honor). I could hardly believe it! I have taught over 1000 students the above, and many of them can testify of similar results.
“But” - and this is a bigbut - when you carefully follow Panin's Bible Numerics method of outlining the 27 books of the NT - you will be awarded by God a “summa cum laude” - a graduation withgreathonor! Then you won't need a NOTEto give understanding of difficult passages. This Outline Method of summarizing the 27 NT Books - will be its own reward!
As you can see, I leave a space above my summaries. By all means cross out any of mine that don't sit well with you, and substitute them with your own! You will never be the same again. We together will start to think God's thoughts after Him, and indeed enter into the mind of Christ. Especially when we take God's challenge to Joshua in 1:8, and read aloudthese sentences and summaries, and meditate over them - even kneeling before God as we do so. George Muller did this. George Whitefield too. I do also.
Blessings on you as you take this challenge. May we allend up in God's sight “summa cum laude” - graduates with greatHonor! - J.A.W.
