After being introduced to the world of the Old Testament in the first year of the secondary school, the second year of Religious Studies will reveal to all of us the complete picture of God’s plan. We cover the rest of the Old Testament (Daniel through the Prophets) and we have a quick introduction of the New Testament (The life and teachings of Jesus Christ and the life of the first believers in the Roman world). Our basic themes for Year 8 are: Prophets Jonah, Hosea, Amos, Isaiah, Daniel and his friends, Nehemiah and Ezra. Introduction to the New Testament: John the Baptist, the Christmas story, Jesus baptism. His teachings: Love your enemies, lust, love, the parables. Jesus and people. Jesus the healer. The last hours of Jesus: The passion, crucifixion, resurrection. Pentecost, the first church, Paul. 

 

Year 9 – Books of wisdom in the Bible + Overview of the New Testament

How should I react when my friends misguide me? Why respect my parents? What is love? How can I use the gifts God has given me? The Bible is not a book written thousands of years ago distant from our realities and having to do only with people that lived then. It can guide our lives today and we will try to discover how with our newly launched Year 9 curriculum. Some of our basic themes for Year 9 are: Review of the book of Proverbs, Ecclesiastes and Psalms. Salvation through faith in the book of Romans and Galatians. Love, Christian Freedom and gifts through 1st Corinthians.
