The Bible program seeks to give our students a strong understanding of scriptural truths and applications that they will be able to take with them into life. Classes are divided by gender from seventh through eleventh grades.
Bible 9 & 10
Alternates yearly between Old Testament survey and New Testament survey. The Old Testament survey highlights key Old Testament themes (such as God’s sovereignty, faithfulness and love) as well as important historical, geographical and biographical information. The New Testament survey provides a study and overview of the Pauline Epistles, general Epistles and Revelation. An understanding of the cultural background and historical context also enables the student to gain a deeper understanding of Bible truths.
Includes study of both a biblical worldview and world religions. Students learn what a worldview is as well as the importance of seeing all of life through the lens of the biblical story line of Creation, Fall, and Redemption. Major world religions—including Judaism, Islam, Mormonism, Jehovah’s Witnesses and Roman Catholicism—are compared to the truth of Christianity.
Covers four major topics. A section on Bible study explores use of genre in Scripture as well as appropriate application to modern life. A personal evangelism and discipleship section includes study and hands-on training in these topics. A section on gender examines the institution of the family and gender roles in church and society. An apologetics study prepares students to defend their Christian beliefs against common objections to Christianity.
