Capable of Sustaining Liberty

By

The Bible is our standard for living, not our brother or sister, not our friend or neighbor.  God’s Living Word is the center of our life, or at least it’s supposed to be the center.  Stray very far from the precepts of The Bible and it doesn’t take long for life to get out of kilter.

Judah Bible Curriculum supports The Bible, as The Master textbook.  Making The Bible the source of every aspect of education.

The author, Bill Burtness, uses the Principle Approach as the foundation for Judah Bible Curriculum.  I’m sorry to say, I wasn’t familiar with Principle Approach, as a philosophy or method, before my introduction to this curriculum.  On my own, I’ve implemented pieces and parts, but not the whole.  Principle Approach “is designed to build character in teacher and student capable of sustaining liberty.”   I’ve spent years focusing on and building Godly character, but not with one eye, so to speak, on the goal of sustaining our liberty.

This is what Mr. Burtness says, “As America has veered away from God, and increased in dependence on the state, while becoming more chaotic, the critical need is to educate a generation of Christians who are intelligent based in Truth, self-taught not media taught, and self-governed under God not dependent on state control.  With the Judah Bible Curriculum, your children will be studying The Bible, not just studying about The Bible.”  Personally, I can wholeheartedly embrace this.

Judah Bible Curriculum is time intensive.  It involves preparation for the parent/teacher, as student AND then as the teacher.  JBC gives you the tools, to learn to teach, on 8 MP3 downloads.  I was overwhelmed, at times.  I’ve taught Bible for years, and some days felt like I didn’t know anything.

Written for all students, K-12, the lessons, themselves, are not difficult.  Though, the program is set up for 5 days of study per week, it is flexible.  Following the design, you learn and teach The Old Testament the first semester, and The New Testament the second semester.  The Bible is divided into five, chronological, time periods –

  1. Creation
  2. The Plan of Redemption Begins
  3. Kingdom of Israel
  4. Kingdom of God
  5. Early Church

Throughout the study you’re asking:  Where do you see the hand of God?  Where do you see the character of God? and Where does the Key (individual, event, institution, or document) belong in His purpose? The student is taught to research, reason, and apply. It is a methodical, step by step, precept upon precept, process of study.

We use the Judah Bible Curriculum as a family Bible study.  We start each lesson with prayer, then read the selected verses from Scripture.  Discussion flows through note taking, utilizing the Key Notes that are supplied.  I might add drawing, map reading, coloring pages, dictionary or concordance work, and additional reading, as a supplement to the lesson, according to the needs of each of my children.  But, I also have the freedom to not add anything, and move on to the next lesson.

The design of the curriculum focuses repeatedly on the main themes, adding different details over the years and expanding with the age or knowledge of the student.  I set the pace for my family.

“The resulting character we are striving to produce in ourselves and our students will be capable of sustaining freedom without anarchy, order without tyranny, peace and prosperity.”  “We should be totally and internally governed by His Word.”
