We discussed how the Bible includes poetry, legal documents, songs, letters, eyewitness accounts, biography, historical documents and advice literature.
We then completed an activity to help the children handle their Bibles more easily. We discussed that when you want to read a particular text in the Bible, you would use a reference.
The children then completed their main activity for the lesson. They looked up the following references: Isaiah 44: 2, Proverbs 24: 13-14, Luke 22: 54-57, Psalms 5: 1-3. They made a note of which book of the Bible it comes from, what genre of writing it is, a note of the main content of the passage and the religious belief that comes from the scripture.
