Unit: 5.1 How and why do Christians read the Bible?


Christian Concepts
God – Creation – Fall – People of God – Incarnation – Gospel – Salvation – Kingdom of God

This unit doesn’t particularly emphasise any of the concepts in great depth. It will depend on discussions and questions that are raised by the pupils. There will more than likely be an opportunity to mention Gospel and Kingdom of God.

The aim of this unit is to:

  • deepen children’s understanding of the importance and impact of the contents of the Bible.

Key Questions 

  • How and why is the Bible used?
  • Do you need a Bible to be a Christian?
  • Why is the Bible holy?
  • Why is the Bible a best seller?
  • Why are there so many versions of the Bible?
