The goal for this week is to explain the different sections of the New Testament. It’s important to place the Bible in context of its layout, content, and how we use it in our daily life – both in our worship and in our own personal, daily reading.

Gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John
Book of History: Acts of the Apostles
Epistles of Saint Paul: Romans, 1 & 2 Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, 1 & 2 Thessalonians, 1 & 2 Timothy, Titus, Philemon, and Hebrews
Universal Epistles: James, 1 & 2 Peter, 1 – 3 John, and Jude
Book of Prophecy: Revelation

Week 6:

In addition to the outline, you will also need the following for this lesson:

I had my students make an accordion book (minus the canvas covers) to write down the answers to our review Q&A. Each student wrote the answers to the following questions on one page of their accordion book. (Watch the video above and see examples of the accordion book we made for class below)

Front cover of their accordion book: What is another name for the Bible? (Holy Scripture)
Next page: There are two main parts of the Bible. What is the first one called? (Old Testament)
What are the four main sections of the Old Testament and what Books of the Bible are in each section? (The Law, Books of History, Books of Wisdom, and the Prophets – See OT banner or teacher outline for the Books in each section)
There are two main parts of the Bible. What is the second one called? (New Testament)
What are the five main sections of the New Testament and what Books of the Bible are in each section? (Gospels, Book of History, Epistles of St. Paul, Universal Epistles, and Book of Prophecy – See NT banner or teacher outline for the Books in each section)
