Developed for Curriculum Framework Course 1: The Revelation of Jesus Christ in Scripture.
Provides an introduction to the Sacred Scriptures and to the unfolding of salvation history, with a particular focus on Jesus Christ as the fulfillment of salvation history. Revelation, both Divine and natural, is explored, as are inspiration, interpretation and exegesis. The course guides the student in coming to know the people of salvation history, including the early leaders of Israel, the judges, kings and prophets, and the history of salvation as revealed in the New Testament. Students also learn about the role of the Scriptures in the life of faith for the individual as well as for the life of the church.
Student books provide all the catechetical content needed for the course and explain Catholic theology in a clear and engaging manner. The learning experience and student understanding are enhanced through a variety of supplemental sidebars. The “Pray It!” sidebars help the students to explore and deepen their prayer lives, the “Live It!” sidebars help the students to connect the teaching to their daily lives, and the “Catholic Wisdom” sidebars provide insight into our Catholic faith, often presented in the words of important Catholic figures from the past and the present. Additional sidebars expand on the content, addressing the Scriptures, doctrine, the liturgy, and more.
