Bible Study Notes (6-volume set)

This six-volume set contains a multi-year course of study with a uniquely Swedenborgian view of the Bible.

Originally written for Sunday school teachers, the course is divided into five age groups: primary (ages 6–8), junior (ages 9–11), intermediate (ages 12–14), senior (ages 15–17) and adult. The lessons from each Bible story are geared toward the life experience and level of understanding of that particular age group, and Dole gives practical advice in each lesson for helping children—and adults!—relate to the Bible. Each lesson contains an overview of the points to be discussed, notes for parents and teachers, text with discussion questions for each age group, related readings from Swedenborg, and questions that review and test students’ understanding.

Volume 1 begins with several lessons on the Creation story, and takes us through the Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve, Noah and the Ark, and the lives of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, ending with the life of Joseph.

Volume 2 begins with the birth of Moses and includes lessons about the ten plagues, crossing the Red Sea, the Ten Commandments, the golden calf, and other familiar stories. It ends with the story of Samson in the book of Judges.

Volume 3 begins with the birth of Samuel and covers the stories of Saul, David and Goliath, Solomon and his temple, and other stories of the Kings, ending with several lessons on the book of Psalms.

Volume 4 begins with a general discussion of the prophets and offers specific lessons on Ezekiel, Daniel, Joel, Amos, Jonah, and Micah. The second half of the book is a detailed series of lessons on the Gospel of Matthew.

Volume 5 focuses on well-known stories from the gospels of Mark and Luke.

Volume 6 includes stories from the Gospel of John and discusses the spiritual meaning behind some of the well-known imagery from the Book of Revelation, including the four horsemen, the seventh seal, and especially the Holy City.

This classic study tool is perfect for group study and individuals who want a structured approach to learning from the Bible.
