Every year from grades 6 through 12, our students will benefit from a thorough and engaging sequence of Bible courses. These courses will be aimed at increasing our students’ understanding of, love for, and trust in God’s inspired, inerrant, authoritative, and sufficient Word, all that they might more faithfully mature in Christ, edify His body, and evangelize His world. Courses will be academic in nature but never divorced from the devotional meditation and faithful application of Scripture.
Bible courses will meet twice weekly for an extended period of time on either Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday which will allow for greater focus and depth of learning, as well as engagement in a wider variety of learning activities.
Tentative Bible course offerings are likely to include:
Survey of Biblical Narrative (6th grade)- Students will increase their familiarity with the narrative portions of Scripture and their understanding of how each of them fit together within God’s overarching redemptive plan.
Systematic Theology (7th grade)- Students will be introduced to the core doctrines of the Christian faith and build a thoroughly biblical understanding of foundational theological concepts. This course in particular will build students’ critical thinking skills and spiritual discernment.
Hermeneutics (8th grade)- Students will learn and practice simple, reliable methods for accurately studying individual passages of Scripture according to a literal, historical-grammatical interpretation that is faithful to context and authorial intent while guarding against erroneous conclusions and applications.
Bible I, II, III, & IV (9th-12th grades)- Students will study book by book through the entirety of the Bible. Each course will consist of a purposeful and cohesive combination of OT and NT books of various genres including study of historical and literary backgrounds, important themes, major events, key passages, and applications.
