BIBLE Grade 8
Description: Eighth grade Bible covers three different aspects of Christian faith: with the goal to help (1)students take ownership of their relationship with Jesus Christ, (2) to know who He is to them personally, and (3) to live that out in their lives.
The year begins with a study of heaven. Students learn what believers have to look forward to by reading the books Heaven by Randy Alcorn and Heaven is for Real byTodd Burpo. After this, students read through the Biblical book of James, with the goal to help them examine how to live out their faith.
Finally, students read Crazy Love by Francis Chan, which helps the student examine who he or she is in Christ. Worksheets, activities, projects and assessments are utilized as we cover these books. Everything studied is viewed through what the Bible teaches, as it is the basis for truth by which all must be examined.
Students need a Bible, preferably New International Version; phones can be used for their Bibles. They also need a three ring binder to keep all their worksheets/notes in for each study. Students will do weekly memory verses and a Bible journal most days.
