How the Bible Came to Be
How the Bible Came to Be Rotation Unit by PowerXpress
Main Idea: The Bible, written by many different people over a long period of time, has been preserved and translated into many languages so it is now available to people around the world.
Scripture: Joshua 1:8; Isaiah 40:8; Psalm 119:105; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; Deuteronomy 6:4-9; Hebrews 4:12
The objectives of this unit are for the students to learn:
1. the books of the Bible were written over a long period by people of different backgrounds,
2. the decision of what books go into the Old and New Testaments, the canon, was made many years ago. These books have been accepted by Christians as inspired by God,
3. the Old Testament is the "Bible" that Jesus knew and quoted. The New Testament contains the story of Jesus, his disciples, and the beginning of the Christian church,
4. all of the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, helps us know how God acts in relationship to people and to know how we should relate to God,
5. we need to know what the Bible says and apply it to our daily lives.
6. we do not have any of the original manuscripts of the books of the Bible, but we do have some very old copies.
7. the Bible has been saved from destruction and made available in many languages over the years; some people involved took great risks to assist in this.
