    Bible 8 Educational Materials

    Student Edition

    In the student edition, students will explore the fulfillment of Old Testament prophecies and promises as demonstrated in the life of Christ. They will continue to build their biblical worldview and their understanding of the big story of scripture. The student edition functions as a brief commentary on an age-appropriate level in order to help students use their skills of observation and interpretation in the student activities.

    Teacher Edition

    The teacher edition provides teachers with multiple teaching strategies to engage students. It is packed with rich content clearly aligned with scaffolded objectives, focusing on interpretation while also indicating appropriate applications.


    As an integral part of the course, students will use the student activities to build basic observation skills and interpretation skills as they complete their Scripture reading assignments. The student activities introduce students to a simple Bible study method: observe, interpret, and apply. Students will see what the text says, learn how to determine what it means, and then apply that meaning to their lives. A prayer journal guides them to pray scripturally and specifically.
