The Story of the Old Testament

The Story of the Old Testament teaches students to study and recognize the big story of Creation, Fall, and Redemption in the Old Testament through individual narratives. Students will develop an understanding of the Old Testament’s application to the New Testament. Ultimately, students will learn to conduct their independent Bible study as they understand the principles of hermeneutics and biblical theology. The course materials work together to present the Bible as the true story of what God is doing to glorify Himself by redeeming His fallen creation.

    How We Teach Bible 7

    The Story of the Old Testament is the first essential piece in the secondary Bible program. This course shapes future secondary Bible courses as follows.

    • This course presents the Creation, Fall, Redemption framework for viewing the big story of Scripture as a single story. Future courses will expand on this and other ingredients of a biblical worldview.
    • This course effectively teaches the Creation, Fall, Redemption approach by correlating the Teacher’s Edition with the Student Text.
    • This course stresses an inductive approach to Bible study, in contrast to a moralistic approach. Students will explore the Bible with a focus on the first step of inductive Bible study: observation.
    • This course expands assessments to encourage students to internalize what they learn from Scripture. Rather than just simple fill-in-the-blank and short answer assessments, the Student Activities include a prayer journal and assessments that guide them as they observe Scripture.

    Bible 7 Educational Materials

    Student Edition

    The Teacher’s Edition engages students with multiple teaching strategies. It is packed full of rich content clearly aligned with scaffolded objectives as it focuses on interpretation and appropriate application. It correlates with the Student Text so that teachers have a guide for teaching the inductive approach of Creation, Fall, Redemption in contrast to teaching the Bible from a moralistic or allegorical approach.

    Teacher Edition

    Building off the Student Activities’ emphasis on observation, the Student Text guides students to take the next step in Bible study: connecting their observations to proper interpretation. Appropriate applications can’t be made without proper interpretation. And proper interpretation cannot be done without good observation. The Student Text emphasizes the need for understanding how the Old Testament fits into the unfolding story of Scripture without making the study daunting. As students study the unfolding story of Scripture, they can understand clearly how the Old Testament applies to modern believers.

    Activities

    Students will be introduced to a simple Bible study method: Observe (what the text says), Interpret (what the text means), and Apply (what the text means for life). This integral part of the course will guide students to practice some basic observation skills as they complete their Scripture reading assignments. A prayer journal will guide them to pray scripturally and specifically as memory verses reinforce the lessons they have learned.
