KEY CONCEPTS WHAT’S INCLUDED
Why Answers Bible Curriculum?
Research shows two-thirds of young people walk away from the church. That usually means they are walking away from the beliefs of their parents, too. Could Sunday school be part of the problem? Curriculum specialist Bryan Osborne dives into why kids are turning away and how ABC can help.

The Bible Is Trustworthy:
We can trust all of God’s Word beginning in Genesis! While showing that Scripture is absolutely true, ABC emphasizes the importance of carefully and accurately interpreting the Bible.
We must be ready to give an answer for what we believe. ABC equips young and old with facts from culture, history, and science to defend the Bible against common skeptical questions.
The Bible presents true history, not made-up “stories.” Chronological teaching through the whole Bible gives your students a powerful, worldview-shaping overview of God’s Word.
God’s attributes are displayed throughout the Bible! As students discover the character of God, they are encouraged to grow more conformed to the image of Christ.
God’s Redemptive Plan (Salvation):
God’s plan of redemption is woven throughout Scripture. From Genesis to Revelation, Answers Bible Curriculum traces the “scarlet thread” of the gospel to reveal this unified theme in the Bible.
We are to live in light of what the Bible teaches. ABC brings the Bible’s teaching to bear on everyday life, impacting all ages with easy, practical applications.
Every age level learns the same topic at the same time. Lessons adjust the content for different ages.

Large wall posters remind your students of the important themes. Year 1 posters include the Attributes of God, the Books of the Bible, Genesis Timeline, and the Seven C’s of History.
