Can he recite it in Hebrew and Greek as well?

This is a pretty cool story:
A man with a photographic memory has memorized most of the Bible and uses his gift to preach as a traveling evangelist.
The Jackson Sun reported that Charles Matlock, 59, is known as the “Walking Bible of West Tennessee” and can recite entire books and chapters.
Matlock said he started to memorize the Scriptures when he was 12 years old. He recalled memorizing his homework one day and thinking to himself that he could also memorize Scripture. The first passage he memorized was John 1:1-5.
But I especially like this quote from Mr. Matlock:
Matlock emphasized, “I want a relationship with Jesus more than just reading and memorizing verses.”
I’ve always wanted to have a photographic memory. I think I would start with memorizing the Bible, then move to the Catechism, then perhaps the Summa Theologica, the Code of Canon Law, the collected works of Scott Hahn…(actually that last one would probably be too much to memorize even with a photographic memory).
