Bible 8

Description:

This class helps the student to establish a solid and personal biblical worldview foundation by revealing, from the Word of God, the nature, character, and attributes of God so as to give teens a better grasp of who God is. It is based on the premise that the more we know and understand God through a careful study of His Word, the greater will be our personal challenge to maintain a right relationship with Him. More than simply a body of information, the course translates knowledge into personal applications by which students discover how an attribute of God applies to daily life.

FROM THE TEACHER

There are many answers given to the question “What is the Bible?” You may have heard it called God’s Rulebook for Life or God’s Love Letter to You or even The Instruction Manual for Joy. Some answers to this question are surely better than others. But the truest and best answer to this all-important question is: The Bible is God’s Revelation of Himself.

That is, the Bible is the written record of God telling mankind who He is and the important things we must know about Him as those created in His image. If there is an all-powerful being who created everything there is and we don’t know anything about him, we are in big trouble. Thankfully, however, God has gracefully revealed to us in Scripture everything we need to know in order to live rightly in His Kingdom.

What is God like? Who does He allow into His presence? What is the Trinity, exactly? Does God care about the tough stuff going on in my life? To investigate these and many other questions, join us in Bible 8 as we dive deep into God’s Word to discover who He is and what He demands of the world.

Student Feedback

This is an excellent course which you should take. Through BB8, I've felt myself draw closer to the Lord and I also learned lots of new things through it.

I learned so much in this class, from God's attributes, to the Trinity, to incorporating God in our daily lives. If anyone wants to learn about the Bible, I would highly recommend this Bible 8 course.

The course was organized and had excellent content that I was able to learn from.
