Bible Study and Teaching

Bible and Worldview

“All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.” (2 Tim 3:16-17) Christian teens today want to understand the Bible. They also want to discuss it with friends, including Christian and non-Christian. With social media, youth are more connected and interactive today than ever before, but they also have less opportunity to study and learn their Bible (current trends in church youth ministry are also not oriented toward Bible study). As a result, our kids don’t feel like they know their Bible well enough to be confident in their own understanding or in knowledgeable discussion. This course meets two profound spiritual needs and heartfelt desires for your student: learn how to study the Bible for lifelong spiritual strength and growth, and become comfortable and confident in discussing the Bible with others. This course builds on the foundation of TPS Bible Survey. The first part of the course gives students tools and skills and experience for reading the Bible as it was intended to be understood by the original writer and audience. The second part of the course gives students tools and skills and experience for discussing, explaining, teaching, or even defending the Bible with others. In all the “courses” your student takes in his or her school years, this one may be the most useful and impacting for life.

Grade Levels*:
