One thing that I’ve been working on lately is a list of suggested Old Testament Lessons with References . Ignorance of Bible content is not a problem limited to third world countries, such as where we currently live. It is an increasingly world-wide challenge, as worldly pleasures compete more and more for our time. This isn’t just a challenge for children and youth, but it affects all ages. So, I would like to challenge you to make Bible knowledge a priority in your family. Help your children become students of the Word.
If there is one thing I’d like to stress, it is that we should not underestimate the minds of little children! They are FAR MORE capable than we often realize. Most two and three year old children are capable of learning all of the books of the Bible, from memory! You may find that you have some catching up to do, and that’s okay, as long as you recognize the need and you are willing to do something about it. Learn together with your children.
So far I have the list finished for the Old Testament. Please know that this list is just a starting place! It is in no way a complete list of all relevant events in the Old Testament. Keep in mind that one of the reasons I am compiling these lists is so that I can have them translated into Swahili so that they can be shared with parents who absolutely do not know how to go about teaching their children, as well as people who are “starting from scratch” in their Bible knowledge, such as new converts.
