Where do I start with Grapevine?

Choosing a Bible curriculum can feel overwhelming. There are so many choices and sometimes it is hard to know where to start. At Grapevine, take the stress out of choosing a study by giving you a simple and easy three-year plan.

We recommend starting with the Topical studies and then moving to the Overview Studies. Here is the 3 year cycle we recommend.

Year 1 –  Topical Studies

Year 2 Old Testament Overview

Year 3 New Testament Overview

Topical Studies at Grapevine

As you get started with Grapevine we recommend beginning with one of our shorter topical studies. We have a wide age range of individual studies to go through.

Depending on the time of year you begin, you will want to include the Birth of Jesus around beginning in November and the Resurrection beginning in late January.The topical studies go further in depth on the subjects than what is covered in the Overviews.

Overview Studies at Grapevine

After you do a few topical studies, you will be ready for the Old Testament or New Testament Overviews. In these studies you will cover the major characters and events of the Bible through a chronological overview. With each level we introduce new skills for students to learn to enable them to eventually be able to study the Bible on their own.
