The Bible

Unit: 2.1 The Bible. Why is it such a special book?

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


The Bible is the source of Christian belief and teaching therefore each one of the concepts can be found in the Bible.

The aim of this unit is to:

  • widen the children’s understanding of the Bible, its contents, presentation and importance to Christians.
  • Begin to develop children’s understanding of holy books from faiths other than Christianity and their significance in the lives of believers.
