EXPLORE THE BIBLE

My Sunday School class uses the Explore the Bible curriculum from Lifeway.  This curriculum goes through all 66 books of the Bible in one cycle.  The current cycle ends this quarter (at the end of August) and it has taken 11 years to complete.  In September a new cycle will begin and is scheduled to take 8 years to complete.  It will not be a true verse by verse study through the entire Bible but with a little reading and study on your own it could easily be turned into it. 

My class is only a year old…we formed in May of 2006 and we have used this curriculum for 3 or 4 quarters now.  It has been very positive.  Getting a feel for the whole book really makes a difference in comprehension and retention of the material.  What material does your class use?  Do you like it?  If not, don’t be afraid to suggest a change.  There is lots of good stuff out there so you should be able to find something that will work for your class.

    I found your comments about Explore the Bible while googling. I’ve only started using this series this quarter (just joined a new church and the Sunday School class I’m in uses ETB), and I’ve really enjoyed following the ‘background passage’ using the Holman Old Testament Commentary (this quarter, it is OT vol 20). I’ve not read all the way thru the Bible before (despite being a ‘born again’ Christian for years), although I’ve listened to thousands of hours of Christian sermons on the radio. It’s been real satisfying getting to cover the entire Bible verse-by-verse. This layman’s commentary has really helped to frame the text in it’s historical background and give a personal application that lines up very closely to the ETB series. I’m excited that I’m ‘onboard’ with this curriculum just before they begin their new 8 year series.

    Daniel,

    Welcome aboard. I really like the concept of this curriculum. I think the best way to learn the Bible is to know the context of the passage you are studying and going through an entire book allows for you to get the whole picture (context).

    Congrats on your new church. I hope that God uses you mightily there.
