Bible History?

Bible History?

Is there a good Bible History lesson out there?
What have you used, what did you like about it?

I'm not sure exactly what you mean by Bible History, but Mystery of History does a great job of integrating the Bible with World History in the first two books. We loved seeing just how the Bible fit in with other events from world history. My kids really learned a lot from Mystery of History.

I just started cle this year with my kids. I used the 7th grade lessons for my 8th grade daughter and 6th grade son so they could do it together. It gives you a lot of history on why they have certain celebrations and definitions of terms. I’ve been really impressed with it. In fact I ordered a high school level booklet for the book of romans for myself. It gives the history of the Roman Empire and how the laws affected the Jews. You can always order one booklet and see how you like it. They’re only a little more than $3.
I’ve been impressed with the details they’ve included. It really made me think more deeply.
Hope that made sense.

My Father's World does an excellent job of this, specifically in 9th and 10th grades. But I'm not sure if you want a full curriculum that integrates Bible, History & English. The three subjects crossover so that the student is doing research and writing across the curriculum (all subjects). For example, the "poetry" books of the Bible are studied as part of the English credit in 9th grade.

If you don't want something *that* complete, maybe try The Bible Project done by Focus on the Family. They take you through a history of the Bible, i.e., who wrote each book of the Bible, the timeframe, the audience they were writing to, etc. And it's free! There are videos to watch, too.

Scroll down a bit until you get to the blue boxes beginning with Genesis 1-11:
