It wasn’t until I was an adult did I fully understand the meaning of Easter. As a child, I felt so lost when it came to religious holidays. I remember the traditions, but the meaning was lost on me. As the girls continued to get older, my desire to know more about the faith in which I followed grew more and more and it continues to grow. When we studied John in 2011, it was like my eyes were opened and everything had new meaning. Thinking about my own experiences and the statistics of children who are raised in Christian homes, I knew that I wanted more for the girls besides for them to just follow my lead. I wanted them to know and understand the why. Grapevine Studies help me to achieve this goal. The Resurrection is truly biblical based. There isn’t any much outside commentary, if any. I love that. So many scholars have to share their interpretation and at times this can distract from the Word. The program does suggest using a Bible Dictionary. This allows the parent to give accurate information to the child(ren). This bible study is meant to be done together so I wouldn't recommend sending your learner off alone to complete.
The method in which the Resurrection is taught really invites the reader into the story. I don’t know about you, but I enjoy being a part of the story. One may think that drawing stick figures may or may not be a good method of learning, but for me and my daughters it helps us to be more engaged. We are able to give the people of the biblical times a face albeit a stick figured face, but a face indeed. It draws us into deeper conversation as to why Judas betrayed Yahshua. We can see the disciples and the Messiah moving about with purpose and this gives us more understanding. My third and fifth grader alike enjoys the stick figuring aspect of this bible study.
