BJU Press’s new Bible curriculum is a tool to help you train your children to walk in truth. Many forces in our world want to capture the hearts and minds of your children. We want this curriculum to help you teach your children to know and love God’s Word. This program provides opportunities for you to teach your children a foundation of Biblical truths. It also emphasizes equipping your children to understand, analyze, and apply the Bible for themselves. Ultimately these materials seek to bridge the gap between head and heart knowledge in your children. All of these courses are available as parent-led subject kits.
The program begins by laying out the foundations in the Old Testament. The Pathway of Promise tells the whole story of the Old Testament emphasizing the fact that the Bible is God’s inspired authoritative word. Bible 4 tells the stories of the Old Testament in a way that teaches your kids to connect each piece to the bigger story of redemption. The stories in the Pentateuch, the histories, and prophets all show God’s continued faithfulness and look forward to the Savior who will redeem His creation. In addition to being available as a parent-led course, this course is now available as a video course taught by Mrs. Overly. You can learn more about the video course on our website.
This course continues from the foundations in Bible 4 and follows the major events of the New Testament. It also shows how the New Testament of the promises in the Old Testament. This textbook will help you equip your children with study skills for interpreting the different genres in the New Testament. This course walks through the major themes in the New Testament. It also provides opportunities for you to talk with your children about their personal need for a Savior.
Basics of a Biblical Worldview is a middle school level course that builds on the foundational knowledge from Bible 4 and 5 to help your kids begin formulating a biblical worldview. This textbook will help facilitate conversations with your child about major cultural and spiritual issues. You may feel uncomfortable talking about some of these topics with your children. However, these are the issues that twelve- to thirteen-year-olds are likely to encounter. We believe that carefully talking about difficult topics from a biblical worldview is one way to help children embrace truth. This book is an excellent tool for addressing these issues in an appropriate, direct, and God-honoring way and for preparing your kids to stand against sin, equipped with God’s Truth.
The Story of the Old Testament, intended for Grade 7, teaches children how the Old Testament unfolds God’s beautiful story of redemption. This course will prepare your children to tell this story to others and explain how all of history fits into this profound narrative. It also gives you Bible study tips to equip your children to observe, interpret, and apply the Old Testament texts.
Bible 8 builds on The Story of The Old Testament by revealing how Jesus fulfills all the promises of the Old Testament. It follows the life of Jesus presented in the Gospels, and how His life changed all of history. In addition, the course focuses on eight major worldview themes presented in the Gospels: Jesus, God and man, the atonement, the gift of the Spirit, and responses to Christ. It also gives opportunities for your children to practice the Bible study skill of interpretation.
Following the two earlier books in this series, The Triumph of Christ covers Acts, the Epistles, and Revelation, and is intended for Grade 9. The books of Acts and Revelation consist primarily of narratives and continue to unfold the story of Scripture. Through teaching the Epistles, this course transitions from the metanarrative of Scripture to specific beliefs and values and cultural engagement.
This course is a high-school-level discussion of a biblical worldview. Biblical Worldview examines science, the arts, government, gender, and history through the lens of Scripture. All courses prior to this textbook that teach Scripture are foundational to the biblical worldview presented in this book. Instead of critiquing false worldviews, this course aims to develop a faith-centered worldview in your children. This course is intended for either Grade 11 or 12.
This Bible curriculum begins with biblical theology and the study of Scriptural accounts in their context. As students grow in their understanding of Scripture, they are prepared to apply their knowledge to different areas of life. They will also be ready to understand Bible doctrines which require knowledge of the whole context of Scripture. We hope this Bible curriculum helps foster a deep relationship with Christ in your children and equips them to share the gospel with others.
