Excerpt from The Catechism of the Methodist Episcopal Church: Numbers 1, 2, and 3, in One Volume, Designed for Consecutive Study in Sunday Schools and Families
These several Catechisms should be used in consecutive order. In the first, the task of the scholar is to learn by heart the answers to the several questions so as to repeat them ver batim, either in numerical order, or when asked at random. This having been done, the next step of the scholar will be to commit to memory the Scripture proofs of the several answers as furnished in No. 2. The instructions of N o. 3 will then be in place.
The Scripture references appended to the answers of the Catechism are merely illustrative, except when preceded by quotation marks, which indicate that the text is literally copied. It will not be necessary for pupils to pay attention to them, unless their curiosity is excited to examine the fountains of religious truth.
Continued perseverance is essential to success in catecheti cal instruction. It is therefore earnestly recommended to parents, teachers, and ministers to review their pupils in the Catechism with frequency and regularity.
