Mrs. Clark’s 7th Grade Bible Class Discusses:
One Among Many
The Just-Another-Great-Book Myth
The One Among Many myth talks about how the Bible is just like all other great books in history, like Shakespeare, the Iliad, and the Odyssey.
They couldn’t be more wrong.
The Bible is not just another “great book.”
It’s the greatest, the only book that could ever tell us all we need to know on how to live forever.
It tells fact, not fiction, and an even greater story than all other books.
It’s the only book that can let you understand why we’re here, and what our purpose is.
And, after being written by many people over a course of a thousand years, it makes sense. No other book will ever compare to it, which makes it the greatest one of all.
Karlene, age 13
The people who wrote the Bible were from many different backgrounds, and they might not have even known about the Bible before they were writing it.
- Does it really matter what you believe, as long as you have faith?
- Are there errors in the Bible?
- Was Jesus just a good teacher?
- Can anyone prove His resurrection?
- What does that have to do with me?
