Why is a Bible-based, Christ-centered
The modern Christian education movement is of recent origin and development. Much work has already been done to write beautifully illustrated, Christ-honoring textbooks. What is still needed, however, is a curriculum that is totally Bible-based and Christ-centered. Such a curriculum would base every lesson on a passage of Scripture and bring all thoughts to Jesus Christ.
Dr. David Bedell
A Scriptural mandate for Christ-centered lessons is
found in II Corinthians 10:5
"Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ..."
The Bedell Curriculum is being written to accomplish this goal as well!
Every lesson is Bible-based and Christ-centered.
What are the benefits of using this curriculum?
Students will be in awe of God and the Book He has written! Their knowledge of the Bible will be dramatically enhanced. Their interest in the subject matter will increase as they view illustrations from fascinating Bible stories. Because a variety of textbooks has been consulted in writing this curriculum, these Bible-based courses are very comprehensive.
The teacher will be thrilled at the opportunity to uplift students spiritually as well as academically. Brighter students will be challenged to think independently. Slower students will find more interest in their academic subjects than ever before.
A Scriptural mandate for Bible-based lessons is
found in Deuteronomy 6:6,7
"And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou riseth up."
