The Bible Teachings unit uses the Bible story included in Deuteronomy 6:4-5, Matthew 5:1-12, and Matthew 22:37-39. The Bible is the special book of our faith and contains God's teachings that help us know how God wants us to live.
By the end of this unit children will:
- Learn that, when we read the Bible, we can discover what God expects us to do and be;
- Explore the Shema (Deuteronomy 6:4-5) and its importance;
- Examine the Beatitudes and their meaning;
- Study Christ's commandment to "love our neighbor as ourselves";
- Be challenged to think about ways Jesus' teachings were very radical and new.
