Abstract

As scripture teachers, we may unintentionally reduce biblical narratives to a values-education program, making them engaging entertainment, self-help stories, cautionary tales or a collection of 'good' stories. An essential aspect of faith formation involves nurturing the personal love of, knowledge about, and interactive engagement with biblical narratives (Bible stories) on both an intellectual and a relational level, so the following Four H's Biblical Framework (four-phase process) was designed to assist Scripture Teachers as they nurture a student's faith formation through an engaging and interactive 21st century transformational approach to studying biblical narratives.
