Teacher’s Manual for the Junior Level (Ages: 9-11)
Topics: Wandering in the Wilderness – Stoning of Stephen
In this book, students will learn how God’s chosen nation Israel experienced the blessings of obedience, the consequences of their disobedience in the times of the judges, kings, and prophets, and the offer and rejection of their Messiah, our Lord Jesus Christ. The lessons show how God dealt with people under the Law and how He now offers His grace to all mankind, without distinction and based on the finished work of Christ. 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:
