The New International Lesson Annual is designed for teachers who seek a solid biblical basis for each session and a step-by-step teaching plan that will help them lead their classes. It can be used with any student curriculum based on the Uniform Lesson Series. In many classes, both the students and teacher rely on the Annual as their companion to the Bible. Includes the CEB and NRSV translations.
Over the four quarters of the 2016-2017 Sunday school year we will explore the themes of Gods sovereignty, creation, love, and call. During the fall quarter we examine Isaiah, Hebrews, and Revelation to see how these books reveal the Sovereignty of God. Lukes Gospel, selected psalms, and Galatians will help us understand Creation: A Divine Cycle, our study for the winter. In the spring we will survey both the Old and New Testaments to discover that God Loves Us. We conclude during the summer with Gods Urgent Call, a study of the way God spoke to certain judges, prophets, and people of the New Testament.
