Bible Stories: Overview

Resources to support the Year 7 Bible Assessment task

Task

Choose one of the following stories:

  • Noah and the Flood: Genesis 6:9-17 AND Genesis 8: 6-11
  • Moses and the Exodus: Exodus 12: 31-42
  • Sermon on the Mount: Matthew 5: 1- 12
  • The Last Supper: Luke: 22: 7-20

Using iMovie, create a video that re-tells the story. Be creative- you can use family members, toys, lego, drawings or still photos , dialogue and narration to tell the story.

You need to include:

  • The scripture reference e.g. (Genesis 1:1-11)
  • The characters
  • The key events
  • A bibliography (you should use websites/videos from the Libguide).
  • A paragraph that explains the meaning of the story and how this story shows that  God looks after His people.

Bible Overview

News flash: the Bible is huge: about 611,000 words long, all divvied up across 66 smaller documents called the “books” of the Bible.

Each of the 66 books is divided into Chapters and the Chapters are divided into Verses.

This arrangement makes it easier to find pieces of scripture.

For example: Genesis 6: 9-17 (Book of Genesis, chapter 6, verses 9-17)

The Bible is a collection of writings from different authors writing at different times. In some ways, that makes it easier to approach the Bible: we can read it in “chunks” rather than needing to read the whole Bible at once.

Each Book has been summarised with a one-sentence overview.
