We received this complimentary product through the Homeschool Review Crew.
In a world full of darkness it is crucial for us Christian parents to teach our children the Bible so that our children can learn how to be the salt and light of the world. As parents, teaching our kids the infallible Word of God can be intimidating, especially when you don’t know where to start. Using bible study tools is a great way to help navigate the Bible which makes Bible Breakdowns by Teach Sunday School a great resource.
What are Bible Breakdowns?
Bible Breakdowns is a set of bible study printables covering each book of the Bible for both the Old Testament and the New Testament. It then breaks down each book into subjects with a colorfully detailed synopsis.
The synopsis gives a birds-eye view of the book and includes the history, highlights, themes, how many chapters in the book, the type of book (ie history), when it was written, the time period covered, and the author. It then goes on to cover the most common accounts of the book along with a brief summary.
How We Used Bible Breakdowns
For this review, I received both the Old and New Testament Breakdowns. I used them almost like a thesaurus or encyclopedia when teaching Bible during homeschool, or if I couldn’t remember specifically where a subject was in a particular book of the Bible, I’d find the book in the Breakdown and then search for the subject.
We did not use it as a reading plan, because we’re currently going through another plan. However, it could work as an individual reading plan because it has boxes that you can check off as you go.
How Much Are Bible Breakdowns?
This is available individually or as a set. You can buy them individually for $7, or purchase the complete set for $11.99. They even offer a 100% money-back guarantee!
My Thoughts On Bible Breakdowns
This is a great tool to use to help with Bible literacy. One of the main reasons is that context is so important when reading the Bible because it can be so easy to read ourselves or modern situations into scripture. This simply is not how we ought to read the Bible because Scripture was written in a much different time, to a much different people.
Yes, the Scriptures are the inspired, infallible Word of God, and yes we can read the words of God and apply it to our life. But one huge problem today is the idea of Eisegesis, or reading ourselves or our own ideas into Scripture. For example, when we read the account of David and Goliath, we are not David slaying giants (our problems in our lives). Unfortunately, many people read scripture in this way. The account of David is a type and shadow of Jesus Christ, the Son of David, and Christ’s final victory over satan, death, and the grave.
When reading the Scriptures, it’s important to do proper Exegesis, which is reading and interpreting the texts of the Bible to discover its intended meaning. This is where context is key and Bible Breakdowns gives great context!
I would recommend Bible Breakdowns by Teach Sunday School! It is a great tool and resource to help keep the Bible in context which is very important.
