How is the Bible being used in Sunday School curriculum if a student can attend class and never have to touch or handle it? What may happen to students if they are rarely prompted to dig into the passage and mine its meaning and relevance for their daily affairs? What might happen is that students graduate from years of Sunday School without ever learning how to handle the Word of truth correctly, in the sense meant by 2 Timothy 2:15 (NIV): Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth. In Part 1 the author explores the implications of how the Bible is used through the lenses of curriculum theory, analyzing the explicit, implicit, null, incarnated, whom and how curricula. In Part 2 the flower/bee methodology is presented as a guide to customizing one’s own curriculum. It works as an overlay over existing commercial curriculum to glean its most useful ideas. It establishes a methodology for each lesson plan to teach students to correctly handle the Bible as a means of growing in godliness and presenting themselves before God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed.
