Trending: Child Recites Alphabet in Bible Verses
By M. Grace, February 21, 2018 00:02 AM
Just this month, a Facebook user Helene K H Yap posted a video of a boy who is reciting alphabet with the use of Bible verses.
She took to social media and captioned it, "Prince George, Prince William's Son" The Grandson of Princess Diana? See how they teach a,b,c,d. Not A for apple."
The video was already shared more than 600,000 as of writing. However, the video does not feature Prince George of Cambridge but rather a three-year-old child named Tanner Hemness from Tyler in East Texas.
The video was originally posted by the child's father on Facebook last October 2016 and wrote, "I am so very proud of this kid. We've been working on this all summer, one letter a week, and every time I thought a verse was too long or complicated, he'd prove me wrong. Now the hard part...being the kind of Dad who helps him live these words. "
The original video garnered almost 7 million views and another 32 million views when it was reposted by KLTV. The trending video made Tanner and his dad score an appearance on "Steve Harvey" talk show.
"Last spring, our youth minister at Glenwood Church of Christ in Tyler, Texas, challenged families to learn a Bible verse for every letter of the alphabet. At the time, Tanner was 3-and-a-half, so I started to tune out. But the minister encouraged parents of young children to try it too, because "we'd be amazed by what they're able to retain," Taylor Hemness shared about the video.
