Sunday Series Update: The Story of the Bible (May 25-June 22)


How many of us really know the story of the bible? I mean the real story...from Genesis to Revelation. Ya, ya, ya...all of us know about Noah and his huge boat, Moses and the burning bush, and Jesus saving the world. Why is it significant that we know the story of the Bible? Answer=Because we are in the story. And if we don't know where we are in the story, we won't know what part to play or how critical our part is. Sundays between May 25 and June 22, we will be discussing and studying the story of the Bible. 
  1. May 25- Beginning: Genesis: The beginning of human history and Israel, God's chosen nation
  2. June 1-Chosen: Exodus-Ruth: Israel's journey to the promised land
  3. June 8-Nation: 1 Samuel-Malachi: Settling in to the land of promise
  4. June 15-Savior: Matthew-John: The life of Jesus
  5. June 22-Kingdom: Acts-Revelation: The spread of God's Kingdom
My challenge for all our students is to memorize the "The Bible in 50 Words." It goes like this...

GOD MADE
ADAM BIT
NOAH ARKED
ABRAHAM SPLIT
JOSEPH RULED
JACOB FOOLED
BUSH TALKED
MOSES BALKED
PHARAOH PLAGUED
PEOPLE WALKED
SEA DIVIDED
TABLETS GUIDED
PROMISE LANDED
SAUL FREAKED
PAVID PEEKED
PROPHETS WARNED
JESUS BORN
GOD WALKED
LOVE TALKED
ANGER CRUCIFIED
HOPE DIED
LOVE ROSE
SPIRIT FLAMED
WORD SPREAD
GOD REMAINED

So that's our challenge out there for our middle schoolers...i thought it might be a cool competition between student and parent...whoever memorizes it first has to buy jamba juice or starbucks. If nothing else, it's fun and moments with your kid. love you...and good luck on your challenge!!
