Old Testament: Books 1 & 2

Teach your students the biblical narrative from Genesis to Ruth (including Job). Written at a second-grade level, The Old Testament presents an unfolding narrative of God's faithfulness to his people, while the overarching Old Testament themes are presented in simple weekly stories. Students will also learn how the Old Testament stories begin to point us to the coming Savior, Jesus Christ.

The text contains thirty two chapters (one per week) and divided into five themed units. Before the week's story, each chapter opens with a Memory Page that includes a weekly memory verse, a Key Facts chart, and vocabulary to remember. A thought-provoking "Who is God?" question will encourage children to consider what they are learning about Him and how to relate to Him in their own lives. Each chapter also contains a worksheet and a quiz. A review chapter at the end of each unit summarizes the material and provides extra puzzles and activities. 238 pages, softcover. Grades 2-6. Pages are consumable and not reproducible.

  • I: In the Beginning -God's Power.

  • Unit II: By the Patriarchs - God's Promises
  • Unit III: Out of Egypt
