Jesus and His Followers
This semester long student text introduces students to the Bible text before jumping into the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, as well as Jesus’ followers. Students will gain a working knowledge of what the Bible is, a brief but detailed history of the Biblical text, the difference in Bible translations (this study will utilize the KJV exclusively). Moving from the logistics of Biblical knowledge, the meat of the text is on the Gospel stories of Jesus. Each story is outlined according to how each gospel writer approached the Jesus encounter. Since each gospel writer presents different perspectives regarding Jesus: Messiah, Servant, Man, God, the encounter is going to highlight Christ in that specific view. Filled with vocab, maps, images, and contextual history students are provided a thorough understanding of who Christ was and what it means to be a follower of King Jesus. There is an index located in the back and some sections have discussion questions. 185 pgs, pb. ~Rebecca

The Grade 11 Abeka Bible program is focused on what it means to follow Christ. Each semester course is scripture based. One semester highlights Jesus and those who followed Him throughout the Gospel stories (Jesus and His Followers) (185 pgs., pb), the other semester is practical theology (Life Managements under God) (158 pgs., pb). Designed as a 4-day/week course, and featuring a spiral learning approach, lessons follow a structure of: prayer; verse memorization, teach, and review (scripture is in the KJV). Students will learn about who Jesus and the disciples were and then how to apply this Christ-like lifestyle in their own lives.
Each course comes with Teacher Editions of the text in full, with helpful teaching guidance’s, scope and sequences, study questions and answers, tips for quizzes, and daily plans (these daily plans are outlines, not scripted lessons). The full-color, non-consumable Student Text also has a corresponding Student Quizzes/Test booklet, and Teacher Quiz/Test Key booklet available. For music correlating with this course, you can utilize the Sing His Praises Hymns and Choruses hymnal and also visit the Abeka website to purchase audio CD’s for each course. ~Rebecca
