Working with a parent four days per school week for 30–45 minutes at a time, students will complete one lesson per week or 30 lessons in 30 weeks.

Lesson Components You Will Find in Part 1 of The Word in Motion: New Testament

Lessons 1-15 each include the following components:

Streaming Video Instruction:

Each lesson begins with a video lesson lasting four to five minutes. Author and speaker Rachael Carman presents a brief introduction to the lesson, providing background, context, and a related Bible story. She will then demonstrate the motion or motions that go with the lesson. More motions are added with each video lesson so that, eventually, students will be able to present a 40-point outline of the entire New Testament complete with motions and keywords that help them remember each one. To access the streaming video instruction component, you must have internet access and the password found at the front of the textbook.

Motion: The first page of the lesson contains a reminder of the motion or motions that go with the lesson.

Passage: This includes the Bible passage(s) covered by the lesson.

Take It to Heart: A Scripture memory verse is provided for each lesson.

Narrative: The narrative presents key people, places, events, and important themes of the passage(s) covered by the lesson, placing them within the context of the overarching story of the Bible, usually, in the order the events happened. The narrative is conversational in tone and is designed to be read aloud by the parent.

Let’s Talk About It: These five questions are provided to encourage thoughtfulness and discussion regarding the narrative and the people and events that were discussed.

Character Sketch: This is a one-page, first-person profile of a key Bible character told from the character’s perspective. Some of these profiles are humorous in tone or language, while others are dramatic or even tragic. Each profile covers important biblical events, lessons, and encounters with God as the people involved might have seen them. These are intended to help students understand that the Bible tells us about real-life events that involved real, flawed people. These characters run the gamut from people of faith like Matthew and Luke to antagonists such as the Sanhedrin and Pontius Pilate.

Doctrine/Apologetic: The content of The Word in Motion courses is non-denominational. However, basic doctrines and apologetics historically agreed upon by the church are presented in each lesson. Among the doctrines discussed are hope, angels, water baptism, faith, the deity of Christ, salvation, temptation, trials and testing, the second coming of Christ, and many others.

Sidebar Article: Each lesson includes an insightful article that brings to life a different facet of biblical history and culture. Among the topics discussed are genealogies, church councils, hospitality, Alexander the Great, scrolls, Jacob’s well, and many others.

Psalm and Proverb to Read: Each lesson assigns the student to read selected passages from the books of Psalms and Proverbs.

Prayer: Each lesson concludes with a prayer that touches on the themes discussed in the lesson. Students and families are encouraged to pray these prayers as a group or individually.
