Lesson 1Introducing the Bible The primary focus of the first lesson is to acquaint the reader with the Bible, while at the same time establishing it as our highest authority. Topics include the Bible's Divine Authorship, the preservation of the Bible, an introduction to manuscript evidence, and a basic overview of the Old and New Testaments. Another major theme is that the Bible was written to be read by all, that we might come to know its Author. Lesson 2Who is God? This lesson introduces the reader to God from a Biblical perspective. Topics include the primary attributes of God, such as justice, love, and omnipotence. Also covered is doctrine of the Trinity, including an introduction to Jesus Christ not only as the Son of God, but as God Himself, the Creator of the universe. Lesson 3God Created the Spirit Beings The third lesson takes readers through a study of spirit beings, which are encountered in the Bible's narrative as early as Genesis 3. Angels, seraphim, and cherubim are all examined in addition to evil spirits such as devils, princes of darkness, and Satan himself. The emphasis of the lesson is on the fact that, although spirit beings possess great power, God remains supreme. He created spirit beings and they answer to Him.
