Teacher’s Manual for the Junior Level (Ages: 9-11)
Topics: Character of God – Joseph
Bible Characters Book 1 explains God’s attributes, how He dealt with mankind, and how He carried out His plans through people. Seven dispensations identify how God’s dealings with people have changed: Innocence, Conscience, Human Government, Promise, Law, Grace, and Kingdom. Four dispensations are explained in this book: Innocence, Conscience, Human Government, and Promise. A timeline of people and dispensations is included, which continues throughout Bible Characters Books 2 and 3. The teaching emphasizes God’s two-fold purpose and applying principles from the Word of God, as it is rightly divided.
Every lesson devotes time for Bible reading and memorization for students, object lessons, review games, and practical application of Biblical truth. Every lesson ends with a presentation of the Gospel and encouragement for students to study and apply the instruction they’ve received from God’s Word.
Each of the thirteen lessons contains:
