The Gospel Project
Friday, March 16, 2012 Enclosure Comments (0)
I am very excited about the new Sunday School curriculum being released by Lifeway. It is called The Gospel Project and you can read more about it here. I have long believed what The Gospel Project proclaims:
Some people see the Bible as a collection of stories with morals for life application. But it is so much more than that. Sure, the Bible has some stories in it, but it is also full of poetry, history, codes of law and civilization, songs, prophecy, letters — even a love letter. When you tie it all together, something remarkable happens. A story is revealed. One story. The story of redemption through Jesus.
The Bible is about God saving and redeeming a people for himself. It is the grand story of redemption.
I have often been frustrated by reading Bible studies and different Sunday School curriculum. While doing my best to present Christ in all of the Scripture and tie every passage into the story of redemption in the pulpit, my efforts have been undermined by Bible studies and curriculum that try to make the Bible nothing more than a self-help book or a list of moralistic teachings. Not any more thanks to The Gospel Project.
I have reviewed this material and I am so impressed. Our church will begin using this curriculum in Fall 2012 quarter. I cannot wait. I am praying God will use this curriculum so that Bayview Baptist Church will “grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen” (2 Pet. 3:18).
