"Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law." Psalms 119:18 (KJV)
No matter the class or students that are to be taught, it is essential that they all understand basic Bible teachings. Some of the "basics" in these lessons include:
Too many teach classes without the students being first grounded in the fundamentals of the faith. These ten lessons, many of which will take more than one class time to complete, will make sure your class has a basic understanding of important biblical principles.

The extensive material uses ONLY THE KING JAMES BIBLE! The lessons begin with a detailed explaination of what is to be taught, followed by suggestions to the teacher on how to teach it, what applicable hymns can be sung, questions to ask after teaching it, and work sheets that the student can complete in class or take home with him.
Each lesson can be taught verbally, but the course can also be left with the student to complete on his own, if you desire. Doing this allows the lesson to be given to Christian school students, homeschoolers, prison ministries, and even for use for family or private devotions. When the curriculum is completed, an included certificate of completion can be awarded to those completing "The Basics".
The beautifully typeset curriculum is downloaded on to your computer when purchased. From your system, this .pdf file (which most systems can read or a free Adobe reader can be downloaded to view it) can be printed as many times as you require. The 92 pages are designed to fit on standard 8 1/2" by 11" paper. You do not have to buy a copy for each student, as most lesson material requires.

These daily devotionals are different from most other devotionals. Instead of reading a random verse and a short illustration about a principle taught in the verse, these devotionals are designed to get the reader to read at least one chapter a day from the King James Bible, and to teach him at least one important lesson from the day’s reading. More need to know what the Bible teaches, and that will only happen by reading it!
It is not the intention of this devotional to teach all each chapter holds. A short, 200-700 word commentary teaches only one of the principles that is taught in the daily reading of one chapter of the selected book. The discussion is not a long-winded, exhaustive study of the entire chapter; just what you need for daily devotions!
Following the commentary is a short quote reinforcing the principle taught in the commentary, several definitions of difficult or unusal words found in the reading, a King James Bible chapter of the day's reading (so you do not have go to the next room and get your Bible), and several short exercises requiring the reader to reflect on what he has read in the day's reading. When this devotional is completed, the reader will have a general understanding of what is taught in in the book he is reading. It contains the daily devotions as taught at www.OpenThouMineEyes.com, plus much more!
These studies can also be used by a Sunday school teacher, home or Christian school teacher, pastor, family or public devotions, or anyone teaching the selected book. This Adobe PDF file (read with a PDF file viewer such as the free Adobe Reader) is 8.5" x 11" when printed and will produce a handout that will help an individual, class, or congregation learn principles taught in the book. If you can view the sample files below, your system already has a Adobe-reading program installed on your computer! As many pages as required can be printed or copied, and given out to a class that is studying the selected book for no additional cost. No longer does the teacher have to purchase one booklet per student!
