Can a ten week Ancient Near Eastern Covenants curriculum change your life and your children's future? Tired of sending your kids out into the world with verses memorized and yet losing them to the faith before they finish college? Let's face it, Atheists, unbelieving Bible hobbyists and even some believing College Professors tell our kids that the Bible wasn't written when it says it was, or for that matter by who it says it was written. The last 150 years of archaeology have proven the critics wrong but this information is not making it into the hands of the most vulnerable of believers - young college students. What if, as a family, you could study - in depth - what the people of the Ancient Near East and First Century knew, how they looked at the world and how they thought and interacted with each other? What if the Bible characters could become real flesh and blood people in the eyes of your children? What if they went out into the world armed with the kind of knowledge generally reserved for serious Bible scholars? What if I told you that I could do that hard research for you and then present it to your entire family in an easy to understand manner? Covenants tell us more about the promises of God and the lives we are commanded to lead than any other theme of the Bible. Beginning in the 1920’s, archaeologists began discovering hundreds of thousands of cuneiform tablets in places like Turkey, Israel, Egypt, and Iraq – documents that have opened the eyes of Biblical scholars to the real life context of the Covenants of Promise spoken of by the Apostle Paul in Ephesians 2. What are these Covenants that we have inherited through our faith in Jesus, and what did those Covenants mean to Jesus’ first century audience? Let’s take a journey with Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, David and Jesus so that we can see God’s promises through the eyes of the people who received them.
