Christ in the Commandments Review

Christ in the Commandments: A Family Study of the 10 Commandments was recently given to me by Luke and Trisha Gilkerson at Intoxicated on Life to use in exchange for an honest review. Great options on how to use this study were provided, and I chose to use this study as our Bible curriculum for this month.

Teaching the 10 Commandments

More than anything, I desire that my son develop a love of the Word of God and a daily habit of studying the truths contained in the Bible. I am so thankful to have this curriculum in our home because it is a valuable tool that I can use to help me lead my son in a focused Bible study. We have really enjoyed using it! I will definitely be looking into using the other Bible curriculum resources from Luke and Trisha. Please feel free to leave me a comment if you have any recommendations of their resources. I am happy to be able to share this review with you today! 

What's Included

There are 30 lessons in Christ in the Commandments. Each lesson includes:
  • An opening thought to keep in mind as we go through the lesson
  • A Scripture reading (both Old Testament and New Testament) 
  • A thorough explanation that sheds light on the Scripture readings
  • Questions for your kids (guided answers supplied for parents)
  • A prayer (beautifully written) to close the lesson

Focused Learning

I love how each commandment is studied in a 2-part lesson. This enables us to take our time and really focus our attention on the commandments. So far, we have gone through Lesson 11 Summary of First Four Commandments. I'm using hand motions to help my son memorize the 10 Commandments along with this study (and I'm learning them right along with him!). Luke and Trisha provide another memory method in this study, as well a link to an Exodus 20 version of "Write Through the Bible" to use as a companion with this study.

Christ in the Commandments has been a wonderful addition to our homeschool! I highly recommend this study for any family - whether you homeschool or not. You can order your own copy of Christ in the Commandments today for $8.99 as a PDF download to begin using in your home with your children. This study is a wonderful tool for parents to use to fulfill our Deuteronomy 6:7 responsibilities...

And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, 
and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, 
and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, 
and when thou risest up. (KJV)

Walking in His Grace,
