The Stories

 

There is one God and He loves us very much, but there is a problem in our lives. We have rebelliously disobeyed His commandments, and so we are separated from God. This is the story of what the Bible teaches God has done to bring us back to Him.

Teaching Note

 

Please note:   All of the stories contain numerous Scripture references so that you may review them to prepare and to be ready to answer questions.   However, you should not include the Scripture references when actually “telling” the stories.

For example, in Story 1, one of the points reads: “Sin manifests itself in terrible crimes (Genesis 4), in immorality and violence (Genesis 6, 19), but most of all in pride and rebellion against God” (Genesis 11).

However, when “telling” story one you would say: “Sin manifests itself in terrible crimes, in immorality and violence, but most of all in pride and rebellion against God.”

As you do this story by story, the result will be a better “Story Telling” method in communicating the wonderful plan God had from the beginning to send the Savior.   So that the chronological and progressive revelation of God’s plan to send the Savior from the beginning is realized, the first time you present the story it should be brief summaries of all 42 stories together. When you go into a more detailed explanation of the stories, you will want to refer your students to the Scriptures listed.



Begin your stories with the following opening Paragraph…

“There is one God and He loves us very much, but there is a problem in our lives.  We have rebelliously disobeyed His commandments, and so we are separated from God.  This is the story of what the Bible teaches God has done to bring us back to Him.”
