Lesson 61: Ezekiel
We read portions of the book of Ezekiel, the MOH lesson, and then watched the two Bible Project videos. These are so helpful with the prophetic books!
We read about the dry bones in Ezekiel chapter 37. I even did the “edible scroll” activity in the Companion Guide, with flattned bread and honey. We opened up Then and Now Bible Maps and looked at the Babylonian world again. This lesson ended with the kids adding Daniel and Ezekiel to the “Kings and Prophets of Judah” page, under Post-Exile prophets.
Lesson 62: Shadrach, Meschach, and Abed-Nego
I don’t know about you, but the Veggie Tales song from Rack, Shack, and Benny always plays in my head when I think of this story. But it’s another great story like Daniel’s, of young men of God who would not compromise. They were rewarded. We read the MOH lesson as well as Daniel chapter 3.
Lesson 63: Buddha (Siddhartha Guatama)
As we study other religions, I like to make sure we are coming from a biblical worldview. So we read the MOH lesson, and then read John 10:9, 31 and 14:6. We also read Chapter 1 of “Don’t All Religions Lead to God?” I have the Kingfisher book of World Religions, so we looked at the Buddhism pages in that.
To finish up, we added these events to our timelines, did the mapwork in the Companion Guide, my 9 & 12 year olds added the corresponding sections to their labpooks (folder books), and everyone did the Week 21 review quiz.
