The LDS church has modified the Seminary scripture mastery passages for this new school year. The scripture passages are meant to help prepare youth for future missionary and church service.

Leaders of the LDS Church have shown an undeniable interest in the youth of the Church lately. In early 2013, the new youth Sunday curriculum Come, Follow Me: Learning Resources for Youth was released. Then age requirements for missionary service were changed in October 2012, allowing many more young adults to serve as full-time missionaries.

This school year, seminary students will notice one more change to their religious education. Church leaders have taken a second look at Seminary scripture mastery passages, modifying the required lists to help prepare youth for future missionary and church service.

Scripture mastery passages are scriptures that youth are required to “master”— locate, understand, apply and memorize—while enrolled in Seminary. There are 25 passages for each year of study, totaling 100 passages to be memorized over the four-year Seminary course.

Some of the formerly required passages have been replaced with new, others have been modified, and many have remained the same. The Book of Mormon scripture mastery list, which students will study this school year, includes seven new passages and one modified passage. (The previously required Moroni 7:45 has been changed to Moroni 7:45, 47–48.)

The chart above details the revised scripture mastery passages.
