Biblical History

While in the Christian Science Sunday School, the boys and girls become familiar with the Bible and its stories. A teacher found that as they came to about high school age, it was both interesting and helpful to them to gain a more definite knowledge of the contents of the Bible.

Briefly, this is the way the problem was approached. Each Sunday a short time was set apart for consideration of it. They were much interested to learn that the Bible is a collection of books, not one book. They were told that, previous to the invention of printing, these books were written by hand on papyrus or parchment; that they were called scrolls, and that the scrolls were very large; that those who loved these books, because of their spiritual worth, were finally able to obtain them printed in English, so that they could be used as we have them today.
