Religion & Bible History 7 - Kolbe Academy

Religion & Bible History 7

This course will cover the Religion 7 and Bible History 7 curriculum.  An instructor will cover the Religion curriculum in the first half of the live class meeting and the Bible History curriculum in the second half of the live class meeting.  One grade will be given on the transcript for this course.

Seventh Grade Religion is designed to teach the student the meaning of grace.  It covers God’s creation of man, His Incarnation, and His founding of the Church, to which He entrusted the means of salvation so that we can live the life of grace now and the life of glory in Heaven forever.  This course looks at God’s revelation to us through creation and the prophets, the sacraments as the means through which we receive God’s grace, and how God’s grace works in us, relating to the practice of virtues.

Grade Seven Bible History covers most of the Old Testament, one-half of the textbook.  The last part of the Old Testament and the New Testament are covered in Eighth Grade.  The course is guided by the Catechism of the Catholic Church and covers God’s divine plan, the creation and fall of man, covenants with Noe and Abraham, the Exodus from Egypt and the giving of the Ten Commandments, and the great men of the Old Testament, in the Judges, Kings, and Prophets.  It can be used in conjunction with the Religion course and done easily in one or two days a week.  The text presents an important aspect for one who is going to be educated with a classical curriculum because it shows how God used all cultures and peoples to bring about the Redemption of mankind through His Son, Jesus Christ.

Students should expect to have daily reading, at least one (or more) weekly written assignments, required participation, and exams as assigned by their instructor.  All requirements are assigned and graded by the instructor.
