The  objective  for  this  course  will  be  for  eleventh  and  twelfth  grade  students  of   Christian  Community  School  to  enhance  their  understanding  of  the  biblical  text  and  how  it   is  properly  applied  to  practical  morality.  This  objective  will  be  met  through  a  variety  of   means.  We  will  be  reading  and  reflecting  upon  a  variety  of  biblical  as  well  as  extra-­‐biblical   texts.  Students  will  be  asked  to  think  critically  about  the  texts  we  read  as  well  as  the   lectures/discussions  occurring  during  the  class  period.  Although  this  is  not  one  of  the  core   classes  each  student  will  be  asked  to  pay  attention,  work  hard  and  apply  themselves  to  all   the  work  performed  during  this  school  year.  Students  will  be  required  to  bring  their  Bibles   to  class  as  well  as  any  other  required  readings  as  these  will  guide  the  lectures.  They  will   receive  grades  for  all  activities:  tests,  quizzes,  homework,  essays  and  participation.     Although  this  course  is  meant  to  provide  students  of  the  Bible  with  a  better   understanding  of  the  biblical  text  this  course  will  be  structured  in  order  to  allow  students   the  opportunity  to  grow  in  their  faith  and  pursue  that  faith  in  a  more  devotional  manner.  I   hope  that  each  student  will  learn  healthy  ways  to  integrate  their  faith  with  a  scholarly   understanding  and  love  of  the  Bible  that  in  turn  increases  that  faith.     2  Timothy  3:14-­‐17     14  You,  however,  continue  in  the  things  you  have  learned  and  become  convinced  of,   knowing  from  whom  you  have  learned  them,       15  and  that  from  childhood  you  have  known  the  sacred  writings  which  are  able  to  give  you   the  wisdom  that  leads  to  salvation  through  faith  which  is  in  Christ  Jesus.       16  All  Scripture  is  inspired  by  God  and  profitable  for  teaching,  for  reproof,  for  correction,  for   training  in  righteousness;       17  so  that  the  man  of  God  may  be  adequate,  equipped  for  every  good  work.
