I make pieces of paper with illustrations of what I learning. With facts condensed, lots of pictures highlighters, silly things to make me remember, changing fonts and colour for emphasis. I also do lots of practice questions and send them to my teacher to mark. The more you do the more likely you are to have the same one appear in your exam. I also write flashcards with 3 mark questions on the front and possible answers on the back. I also make flashcards with bible verses on. (I do this for Islam also). I am a strict Christian from birth so I understand the Bible very well if you would like me to explain/need help with anything.

I use revision cards to just learn the basic knowledge and teachings e.g. Ascension - Jesus rose to heaven and lifted man's sin with him 'Love thy neighbour' and then I also before a unit assessment I do a 2 page mind map on the whole unit and make detailed notes e.g. the theme religion and life I did 4 mind maps with exam questions, teaching and 3 different beliefs about each concept

That is similar to what I do but instead of making
Mindmaps I write a4 pages notes is that still as efficient- pls let me know?

The word is basically an alternate name for Jesus. It is almost only used in John Chapter 1 where Jesus was referred to as the word in creation. ‘In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and the word was God’ = ‘In the beginning was Jesus, Jesus was with God (the father) and was God’ I guess it’s used as imagery for Jesus being part of creation. For a 3 mark question such as ‘Describe the role of the word in creation’ I would write:
In the creation story in John Chapter 1 the word was a referral to Jesus and how he was present at the beginning of time and through him God created the world. It shows him as fully God by the fact he was not created but in existence before creation. The use of the word ‘word’ shows how he was present maybe creating the earth from instructions God gave him.

Thank you soooo much that clears my confusion. So Jesus is believed to be in existence before actually becoming Human right?
