Connecting the Dots
Judith Kieff writes, “One of the most important functions of a teacher is to help students make important connections between the subject matters they study.”* The lesson this week offers an ideal opportunity to help students connect the following dots:
●Connecting David and Jesus
●Connecting the Old Testament and the New Testament
●Connecting scandalous women and God’s scandalous grace
●Connecting the story of David and the story of Christmas
●Connecting the ancient world and the modern world
Take advantage of this chance to help students get a wholistic perspective of the bigger story. By connecting the story of Tamar to David to Jesus to today the young people can gain a deeper appreciation for the story of salvation.
