The Old Testament and the New Testament



Designed to carry one through the Old Testament in one year, and through
the New Testament in one year

This lesson-book was prepared in order to meet a need realized in my own
work as a pastor; a need which is felt by many pastors and workers among
the young.

In the Home, Sunday-School and Church are children of all ages, from six
to sixteen. It is found impracticable to give to all this varied company
the same teaching. The lessons that are admirably adapted for boys and
girls between ten and fifteen are utterly unsuited to the children
between six and ten. Moreover after looking carefully, I have not been
able to find satisfactory lessons which can be taught to the young
children except by one especially trained for the work; and such
instructions are hard to find.

After various experiments I adopted in my own teaching the following
plan. We divided the children into two sections; the First Section
including all over nine years old, the Second Section all those under

I selected for twelve lessons, twelve Bible stories following in
succession, beginning with the story of Adam and Eve. On each of these
stories I prepared a catechism of very simple questions and answers, and
printed them by a duplicating process. After the opening of "The
Children's Hour," I told the story to all present in simple language,
explaining that while the story was told to all it was for the special
benefit of the smaller children; but =I noticed even the oldest boys and
girls listened to it with interest equal to the youngest=.

After the Bible story and the singing of a hymn, the Second Section
withdrew to another room. There the children were divided into classes,
and taught the questions and answers. A copy of the leaflet containing
the questions and answers of the story for the day was given to each
child, to be taken home and reviewed by parents or the older members of
the family.

By separating the children into two grades, the older young people can
receive instruction suited to their age, and the little ones are also
provided for.

So many pastors and others have requested copies of the leaflets
containing the questions and answers, that it has seemed desirable to
publish them; and they are now completed upon the entire Bible story,
and brought together in book form for the use of teachers of children.

These lessons may be used in classes of the Sunday School, by teachers
who desire a more consecutive treatment of the Bible story than is given
in the International Sunday School lessons, and by parents.

There are many families where "The Story of the Bible" has been read to
the interest and profit of the children. Parents will find that these
lessons will help to fix the important facts of the Bible story in the
minds of the little ones.

It will be seen that the questions and answers do not embrace all the
stories in the book. A selection has been made of what seem to be the
most important subjects, affording weekly lessons for one year, with
allowance for vacations, in the Old Testament, and another year in the
New Testament.

In the hope that these lessons may aid the children of to-day, who are
to be the men and women of to-morrow, to gain a definite knowledge of
the Word of God these lessons are sent forth.

                                                JESSE LYMAN HURLBUT.


1. Let the teacher in advance read over the questions and answers of the
lesson, note their relation to the story as told in "The Story of the
Bible," and to some extent fit the story to the lesson which is to be

2. Tell the story (or stories) of the day's lesson to the children,
following the plan given in the book. Use very simple words and avoid
all that are in any sense technical, or above the mind of a child.

3. After telling the story for the day, the children may be divided into
classes, and assistants may teach the questions and answers. But before
the close of the session it would be well to ask all the questions, and
have the answers given by the children.

4. In order to complete each course, in the Old Testament and in the
New, within a year, it may be necessary to omit some of the lessons,
where classes take a vacation in the summer. To complete the course of
each year in such classes the Reviews at the end of each series of
lessons might be omitted, although they will be valuable as summaries of
the important facts of the lesson. Some teachers might prefer to omit
from the Old Testament lessons, some of the following in order to
complete the course in a year. Lesson XXVIII David and Absalom; XXX The
Temple; XXXVI Elisha and Jonah; XXXVIII, XXXIX The Kings of Judah; XLIV
Queen Esther. These are suggested for omission not because they are
unimportant or uninteresting, but in case some lessons must be omitted.
In order to complete the course in one year in the New Testament
lessons, the following might be omitted, if some must be. XVI The
Mothers Prayer; XX The Good Shepherd; XXIII Jesus and the Children;
XXVI, XXVII The Last Teachings.



Lesson I. The Beautiful Garden.

(Tell Story 1 in "Hurlbut's Story of the Bible.")

=To the Teacher:=

Under the title of each lesson throughout these pages will be seen
instructions to tell certain lessons, with numbers. These numbered
lessons and parts correspond with the numbered lessons and parts in
"Hurlbut's Story of the Bible."

Let the teacher begin by asking, "Who can tell us what is the first
verse of the Bible?" When hands are raised, call on three or four
children to repeat the verse in turn; then let all the class repeat it
in concert. Explain what the verse means, that God made the world, and
all the things in it. Tell the story of the creation of the world; of
the first man and the first woman; the Garden of [=E]´d[)e]n, and how
[)A]d´[)a]m and [=E]ve lost their home, and were driven out. Then teach
the class the answers to the following questions. At the close of the
lesson, see that every young pupil is shown just where the questions and
answers on the lesson are found. The answers should be reviewed by
parents, or older brothers and sisters, until the child can repeat them
thoroughly, and can tell in his own language, the story of the lesson.

created the heavens and the earth."=

Doctrine Publishing Corporation provides digitized public domain materials.
Public domain books belong to the public and we are merely their custodians.
This effort is time consuming and expensive, so in order to keep providing
this resource, we have taken steps to prevent abuse by commercial parties,
including placing technical restrictions on automated querying.

We also ask that you:

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Doctrine Publishing
Corporation's ISYS search for use by individuals, and we request that you
use these files for personal, non-commercial purposes.

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort
to Doctrine Publishing's system: If you are conducting research on machine
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a
large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the use of
public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help.

+ Keep it legal -  Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for
ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just because
we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States,
that the work is also in the public domain for users in other countries.
Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we
can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of any specific book is
allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Doctrine Publishing
ISYS search  means it can be used in any manner anywhere in the world.
Copyright infringement liability can be quite severe.
