  • Introduction To Education In Bible Times

    $17.99

    A Burkhart Books Title

    A thought-provoking study of education in Bible times and its pivotal role in the spiritual formation of God’s people.An Introduction to Education in Bible Times takes the reader on a fascinating journey through biblical history. Using a meticulous analysis of biblical texts, Chris Reeves demonstrates the central role of education for the Jewish people, as he traces the theme of teaching and learning from the creation of man through the creation of Israel, to the teaching ministry of Jesus and the apostolic church.Historically, education was not isolated to a classroom; it was holistic and transformational and lived out in real-life experiences. Understanding the Jewish background of religious education both before and during Jesus’s time helps us to more clearly understand the relational concept of teaching and learning, the centrality of God’s Word, and of “making disciples.”An Introduction to Education in Bible Times challenges the reader to follow God’s purpose and intent for education as seen in Scripture. This book can serve as an effective resource for students, educators, counselors, and pastors who desire to examine the multifaceted topic of education in the biblical era in a way that is relevant to modern times.
