Freshman Bible/Bible I
The students will demonstrate an understanding of the bible through a complete biblical narrative, in chronological order. The course will cover the narratives and significant characters of the Old Testament in the first half of the school year. The second half of the year will cover the New Testament and its main characters. The overall theme of the class will be for students to demonstrate knowledge of Jesus Christ being the main character of the entire bible from Genesis to Revelation.
This class is very relevant to each student. We are going to explore the Bible and its influence on society. To do this we will be doing studies on various religions vs. Christianity, learning differences between the Old and New Testaments, and doing a study on the Reformation and the spread of Missionaries. We will be doing some outside reading from C.S. Lewis to strengthen our faith. The books we will read will be The Great Divorce and Screwtape Letters. The first book deals with the relationship between Heaven and Hell and how people cannot get to Heaven. The Screwtape Letters is a conversation between two demons who are strategizing how to take the focus of their patient (a human) away from God.
