Today I’m happy to share with you a review of a new Bible Study my older boys started a few weeks ago called Grapevine Studies.
Specifically, it’s the Level 4 New Testament Survey. I wanted my boys to get an overview of the whole New Testament as they studied the Bible this year. Each week they read a portion of Scripture, take notes on it by drawing Stick Figures and other graphics to help them illustrate what happened, answer review questions, and study deeper by using specific resources such as a Bible Dictionary (Vine’s), a Concordance, and a Topical Bible (Nave’s). It’s been different from other Bible studies they have done in that they are doing a lot of the study on their own. It’s more open-ended rather than being completely laid out for them. I really like this aspect since it is stretching them more.
Here are a copy of pages the boys did:
The part that I don’t like as much is that there is supposed to be teacher instruction, especially in the area of application. I don’t have time to do that with them (wanted a self-study for their Bible study this year), so what I have done is have them look up the answers themselves in my teacher book. I also have them write ways to apply the Scripture at the end of each section.
I do recommend this Bible study and look forward to doing it myself when I finish the other one I’m doing right now. I’m sure my boys will really learn a lot this year!
Be sure go to the Grapevine Studies website to look at their free samples. They have Bible studies for all ages for use in all different settings! You’ll find what you’re looking for!
