Old Testament Overview Bible Lessons for Youth Grades 7-8
Teaching the Old Testament Overview to youth is a big job and can feel overwhelming. Do I have the knowledge? Do I have a plan? Will the young teens like it? If you have asked these questions, you are not alone! We believe every child can learn the Bible at their level, and we provide teachers an effective framework and method to teach them.
Let me share how it works! You will stick figure the Old Testament timeline, introducing your children to the major characters and events. With each following Bible lesson, you will take your students on a journey into all of these stories. Periodic reviews ensure your students retain the information.
