Helping Teenagers Read The Bible Is Fundamental


Bible for Teenagers - Teenagers frequently inquire about the Bible's relevance in their own lives. Teenagers who pose that question frequently do so from a place of uncertainty about their knowledge of Scripture.

When you start from that point and say, "I'm not sure if the Bible is relevant to me," you've already set yourself up for failure.

The Bible is unlike any other book ever written. It is the cornerstone of Christian life, yet it might be difficult for some, both young people and adults, to open it and read it on our own.

Fellowship Bible Church offers some suggestions for engaging young people with the Bible.

What Is The Bible?

The Bible is an amazing collection of ancient books that Christians believe are God's revelation to mankind. Some say it's like having a library of books and letters all in one place.

God's interaction with the masterpiece of his creation (humankind) is told in the Bible. According to the Bible, its words are "God-breathed."

Although it is unclear how God 'breathed' the verses, most Christians believe God inspired the scribes as they wrote his words.

The Christian religion is founded on the Bible.

People can learn more about God and his intention to reconcile all people and the entire world to himself by sending his son Jesus Christ to dwell on earth through the Bible.

What Is The Meaning Of Testaments?

The Old Testament (pre-Jesus) and the New Testament (during and after Jesus' life) are the two portions of the Bible.

The canon refers to the list of books that comprise the Bible.

Various Christian churches, however, have different canons. Catholics include seven more books in their Old Testament (often referred to as the Deuterocanonicals) as well as some additional material in the books of Daniel and Esther.

Other books in the Orthodox Christian canon are also recognized. The Jewish people's Hebrew Bible is made up of the Old Testament's 39 books.

Why Should Young People Care About The Bible?

In every sense of the term, the Bible is epic. It's alive, it's active, and it's powerful. It is succulent food that provides life, and the most essential thing we can do is introduce young people to its Author.

Devaluing and diluting it, on the other hand, will produce young Christians who are unprepared to live for Jesus as they mature.

Opening the Bible in our youth groups is a huge step forward, but it's nothing compared to teaching those kids to read it for themselves.

We must also educate young people how to read it rather than just reading it. It's the same of handing a young person an acoustic guitar and telling them to play Brit-Pop; it'll only go them so far!

  • Young people need to have this relationship with the Bible in order to:
  • Create a genuine, evolving connection with God that is not reliant on you.
  • Learn to recognize when God's voice is lacking and to hear it more clearly.
  • Have more to offer your religious community
  • When listening to flawed teachers (like us!) be more discerning.
  • The method of John 10:10 is to live life to the fullest.

How To Help Youngers To Read The Bible?

We have some steps for helping young people you may know to get inrested in the bible.

Encourage Them To Be Enthusiastic About It

There are a million things that young people are enthusiastic about! Even when it's buried under apathy, a lack of passion isn't an issue.

Look for their passions and tie them to Scripture. What is it that they are most concerned about? Is it their family and friends, homelessness and poverty, football and computer games that they are concerned about? All of these things have a hook in the person's heart that may be discovered in the Bible.

Make sure you show them how God talks about that attribute when you notice anything excellent in them.

Allow God's Word to soak up your positive reinforcement of them. Give scriptures that speak explicitly to those topics when they have an option to make.

Show Them How Much You Care

The other four steps are useless without it. You must have a constant and active contact with the Bible.

This relationship must grow organically rather than relying on prewritten Bible study materials.

If you appreciate the Bible and are actively working on improving your connection with it, it will show in your words, actions, and teaching.

Young people never miss an opportunity, and this is no exception.

Create A Mentorship Program

One-on-one mentorship is the perfect bridge between group Bible study and personal, regular reading.

Find youth group leaders or church members who can take young people out for cake and reading.

You can persuade some of your older youth group members to continue on the tradition by reading with younger youth group members once you've established it.

Language Matters - The Modern Hebrew Translate Case

The Old Testament was originally written in Hebrew. You'd think that Israel's millions of Hebrew-speaking teenagers would be able to read and comprehend it.

However, HaGefen Publishing, an Israeli Christian publisher, has noticed significant disparities between biblical Hebrew and current Hebrew, which make it difficult for Israeli youth to grasp the Bible.

HaGefen is seeking to address the issue by printing the first-ever modern Hebrew translation of the Old Testament.

The new translation is part of "The Testimony," a contemporary Hebrew translation of the complete Bible called "Ha'Edut." The first volume, which included the first five books of the Old Testament, was released in 2001, and the second volume, which included the historical books, was released in early 2004. Volume three, which comprises the prophetic literature, will be released in late 2006. The project started in 1994 and is expected to be completed in 2010.

Shoshan Danielson's translations into easy, current Hebrew terminology are edited by Baruch Maoz.

Experts in Hebrew and the Bible, as well as a control group of youngsters, are among those collaborating in the research. More than 1,000 images, including genealogical diagrams, were included in the final publish.

Those translations helped many youth people from Isreal become interested about the bible.
