>I found out yesterday that a new class has been added to my load at WCS: Senior Bible. See, all of the other classes have actual biblical titles like Old Testament Survey or Acts and the Pauline Epistles. Senior Bible is special…its the stuff we couldn’t figure out any place to put it, like Hebrews or James or 1 and 2 Peter, as well as an emphasis on the parables of Christ.
I’m actually excited about this assignment. Granted, its more work and another prep to do for each day, but it also fills in the story. I was amazed last year how my biblical knowledge increased over the verses I covered in class, but found myself lacking in two main areas: the Gospels and the stuff no one understands. Conveniently, a lot of that is what Senior Bible is! So at this time next year I will have literally studied and taught every book of the Bible.
There isn’t any big insight from this, other than its of course important to read God’s Word. I’m just pumped I get to do it with some students who need to hear what God has to say to us.
Here’s to an excellent year!
