The grade 2 curriculum introduces students to the time between the Old and the New Testament. Students see how important these years were in God’s preparation for the coming Messiah, and study events of the New Testament such as the Passion Week, Jesus’ crucifixion, and resurrection. The curriculum starts with the study of a New Testament epistle, the book of James, that challenges students to find ways they can apply their faith in Jesus Christ. The curriculum concludes with a study of how Jesus’ followers responded to their salvation in Christ and students are challenged to respond faithfully, like Peter and Paul to Christ’s saving work. Teachers can teach these lessons at any point in the curriculum. Other topics in this grade level include Jesus’ ministry as a Child at the Temple, 12 Disciples, Sermon on the Mount, Feeding the Five Thousand, Miracle at Cana, and Raising Lazarus.
