Does your child know there is a God?
Do your children know that God loves them?
Do your children know that God has a covenant with them?
What is a covenant you might ask?
A covenant is a promise. In the bible, we read that God gave mankind several promises.
“I will be your God, and you will be my people.”
God promised mankind that He would send a Savior.
Why would mankind need a savior?
That is a good question. It is because of sin. Sin entered into the relationship between mankind and God, when Adam and Eve listened to the serpent (satan) in the garden, instead of obeying God. But God promised to send a savior who would make a sacrifice or payment to cover the sins of mankind and by us accepting the savior, it would make it possible for mankind to be restored and live eternally with God.
Here is a wonderful bible study curriculum to help you teach your children about God’s promises called God’s Great Covenant New Testament 1 by Classical Academic Press.
The student workbook is a large book of 350 pages. It is very easy to read with large bold lettering. There is a managible amount of information on each page. I really like the clarity of the print on each page. It does not feel overwhelming to my kids or to me. The student book also includes several large easy to read maps such as this one.
It also contains reviews, quizzes, crossword puzzles and more that enrich the learning of each chapter.
This book is broken down into 36 chapters divided into 4 Units that teach about God’s Great Covenant with man and teach who Jesus is.
Jesus, the Son of Man, Has Come ….To Live Among His People
Jesus, God’s Servant, Has Come…..To Proclaim the Good News
Jesus, the Messiah, Has Come…..To Teach About God’s Kingdom
Jesus, the Son of God, Has Come….To Conquer Sin and Death
It covers history, geography, politics, religion, prophecy, and culture. It has a glossary of vocabulary words, bibliography, and a full map section too.
A fun aspect about the curriculum is that your student meets a boy named Simon who shows them an inside view of his world. He lives in Jereth and your student learns about his daily life as he goes through his day. Each unit has a section dedicated to learning about Simon’s daily life.
Each unit also has a devotional to encourage further spiritual growth in your student. And parents can participate right along with them and grow in their spiritual walk together. It is designed for students in 4th grade and above, but is adaptable to younger students too.
The teachers edition is very large 352 pages. It contains the complete student edition and also includes answers to the student workbook materials and quizzes as well as margins for writing teachers notes and special teacher/parent instructions for each page.
This curriculum helps students personalize what they are learning in the bible. It helps them to dig deeper and connect the dots of the various stories they have learned. It explains who the savior is, why God sent him, and what it means for each of us personally.
