MS Biblical Literacy and Interpretation

Sevenstar

Course Description:
In this middle school Bible course, students will increase their biblical literacy by reading key stories and other passages from the Bible. As students progress through this course, they will not only identify the setting, characterization, plot, and theme(s) of these passages; they will also identify how each passage aligns with the biblical themes of creation, fall, and redemption. In addition, students will analyze what each passage says (observation), what it means (interpretation), and how they should respond as a result of understanding its message (application). Finally, students will demonstrate an understanding of the Bible by selecting, observing, interpreting, and applying a passage of their choice.
