BJU Press' Bible 8: The Life of Christ Curriculum Kit. The Bible is the true story of what God is doing to glorify Himself by redeeming His fallen creation. The Gospels present the life of Christ, not as a biographical sketch, but as the fulfillment of God's redemptive plan as promised in the Old Testament. Jesus has all of the characteristics of the Messiah and fulfills the Messiah's mission to advance the kingdom of God. Grade 8.
