The Bible in All of Life


The Bible in All of Life


The Bible is one book, made up of many books. It is by one Author (God) using many writers. The Bible is one story of creation, fall, redemption, restoration. To write this story God’s Book is divided into Old Testament and New Testament. The writing is complete but applying that writing is ongoing, generation after generation, through all of the ages. This is how you and I fit into God’s Story. We have been given all of the writings and we are taught to believe it, respond to it, teach it, live it. What is “it?” The whole Word of God.

Now in reference to school: Everything that we teach must fit into (flow from) the Word of God. As Christian teachers we want our children to see each academic area, each sport, all of the arts, household chores, employment, investments, free time activities, and the answers to any questions related to God’s Story and placed into our application of His Word.


A good first step in seeing the Bible as one story is to gain understanding of the New Testament by what you have learned from the Old Testament. For example, The Lamb of Exodus became the Redeemer of the New Testament.
