Growing Up In Grace: Bible Characters – Book 3


The reformatted and revised edition is available now!

Teacher’s Manual for the Junior Level (Ages: 9-11)

Topics: Herod – John

Bible Characters Book 3 explains God’s dealing with mankind, from Herod to John. Key individuals during the earthly ministry of Christ are highlighted, as well as Paul and other members of the Body of Christ which first received and proclaimed the message of grace. The book concludes with John, who foretold the terrible events of the Tribulation, when the prophetic clock resumes and Antichrist is revealed. The conclusion of the timeline of people and dispensations is included. 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.
