Wonderful resource for Apostle Paul
March 25, 2016
The Life of the Apostle Paul PowerPoint is filled with information that could be a useful resource for many bible study lessons. My class will study 1 and 2 Corinthians next fall and I plan on using information on the slides from Pauls Second Missionary Journey to enhance my own PPT presentations. The Main Menu has a link to a variety of specific slides explaining who Paul was from the early years through his time as a missionary. There are links for each of his three missionary journeys, his final journey to Rome and well as 13 slides detailing his other trips. What I really enjoy about the slides on Pauls journeys are all the map slides with animated line tracing each step of the trip. A previous bible study I attended asked participants to mark out on our maps the routes he took it was very difficult. Each of his journeys starts with the city of origin and draws the line to the next location on the trip. This is one of the most creative and valuable teaching tools in the PPT show. Pauls first missionary journey uses 22 slides color coded with a helpful timeline across the top. There are 8 slides of the very colorful and detailed map, plotting the trip with a red line. Each trip has maps, photos, artwork, as well as informational slides for key events and notable people. The cool thing about the menu links is you do not have to wade through the 174 slides to research one specific trip or jump to the slide on each letter or key teaching.
There are slides for each 13 letters of Pauls in the bible providing an attractive multi-color chart detailing the key verse and theme of the letter, to whom and when and where it was written. This alone is a valuable resource for anyone teaching one of these books. Eight vocabulary slides highlight Pauls key teachings in concise manner.
