In part 1: THE OLD TESTAMENT, (13 lessons) we’ll look at the overarching story of the Bible, and walk through the Old Testament where God spoke to His people through prophets and priests and Kings, and sometimes directly. This unit ends at the beginning of the New Testament, where we see things being put in place for God to speak again, and where we get a hint of how God was coming into the world.

In part 2: THE NEW TESTAMENT, (14 lessons) kids will walk through the life of Christ, the birth of the church and the spread of the gospel, before looking forward to the written of Christ at the end of the age.
