In recent years, movie goers have been taken back to the beginnings of nearly every modern action hero - Batman, Spider-Man, James Bond and Iron Man (and company), just to name a few. Our fascination with these heroes' origins are a reflection of our longing to know where we came from and why we are the way we are. With The Old Testament, you can share with teens their own origin story and help them make sense of their world and themselves. These 12 sessions of youth-friendly Bible study will introduce your students to the God who keeps His promises, works miracles and forgives His people when they make terrible choices, and help them understand the physical and spiritual history of our human family. And when they meet Adam and Eve, Samuel, Job, Esther, Daniel and many more biblical characters, your students will get to know the real heroes of the faith.
Downloads for reproducible student handouts for every session are available.
