Joshua Bible study outline


I am sharing this outline for those who ask me about our schooling.  This is a brief outline for our six week study of Joshua.  This outline is for me and the kids to reference as we work through the book.  The details of each assignment are givien on a weekly bases, and they write them into their own notebooks.  We have map books, commentary materials, and more that we reference as we study.  We also use videos, and recorded sermons as we discuss the book.  But the focus is on reading the words over and over again, finding the meaning behind the words (looking at the original Hebrew language), and memorizing the Word.  Note booking is required, and we use it for grammar training, as well as, to plant the lessons into our heads and hearts.
