Teaching the Scriptures

[From a teacher in a branch church Sunday School]

In Article XX, Sections 2 and 3, of the Manual of The Mother Church, Mary Baker Eddy gives instruction for teaching in Christian Science Sunday Schools. Her first injunction is, "The Sabbath School children shall be taught the Scriptures." Teaching the Scriptures is a matter of individual unfoldment on the part of the teacher, but it is sometimes helpful to know how others have fulfilled this requirement.

Many children enter Sunday School several years before they learn to read for themselves the first lessons and the stories from the Bible that are so dearly loved by these little ones. Therefore these stories must be presented orally in simple words which they can understand. As the children progress, the teacher has the priceless opportunity to introduce to them the text of the Bible and to familiarize them with the use of the Book, instilling in them a great respect and love for it.
