7th Grade – Bible

Philosophy
God is a relational god and has chosen to reveal himself largely through the revelation of Scripture.. Students will study scripture and become more familiar with their God to bring them into a closer relationship with Him. As they learn more about scripture they will become equipped to “always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.” 1 Peter 3:15 As they struggle for the answers they will become more “sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.” Hebrews 11:1

Course Objectives
Students will study an overview of all four gospels focusing on the life of Jesus Christ. They will learn about the similarities and differences between the gospels as well as see the whole picture of the life of Christ (from birth, to death, to resurrection, to ascension).
