Grade 6, Unit 3
Prophets and KingsDear Parents,
In Unit 3 of One in Christ, we continue our overview of the Bible. We want to see that Scripture is really one big story about God’s love and His plan to save humankind by sending a Savior. All of Scripture points to Jesus.
In Unit 3 (and extending into Unit 4), we will look at the kings of the Old Testament period. We will see that each king is associated with one or more prophets who were spokesmen carrying the word of God to His people. This unit will have two subthemes that intertwine with the Bible narratives. One is Thanksgiving, as we see God faithfully blessing His people in bad times and in good. The other theme relates to the petitions of the Lord’s Prayer. Though the prayer is from the New Testament, it is addressed to one and the same God. We can again see the many connections throughout Scripture—and to our lives today!
Our school is your partner in the Christian education of your child. Your active role in this partnership is vital. Lead your child to see that Christian is not just a name. It is not just about time spent in school or church or reading the Bible. It is who we are by faith in Jesus. It is a way of life that is empowered by the Holy Spirit working in us daily. And it is an eternal hope and certainty we have because of the cross and empty tomb of Jesus.
May God bless your family in the name of Christ Jesus!
