The curriculum consists of four units covering 36 weeks. Units include:
I. Jesus, the Son of Man, Has Come... To Live Among His People
II. Jesus, God's Servant, Has Come... To Proclaim the Good News
III. Jesus, the Messiah, Has Come... To Teach About God's Kingdom
IV. Jesus, The Son of God, Has Come... To Conquer Sin and Death
There is an immense amount of information in the introductions: historical/political introduction, chronological introduction, geographical introduction, religious introduction, and a daily life introduction. I learned a lot and will read it again. While they are immensely important, I would advise reading the introductions with your child a bit at a time. My daughter, 14, was a little overwhelmed with the reading and content. She has a rather heavy course load right now that may have added to her feeling. If I'd had her read a little and start right in on the lessons, it might have helped.
- 36 weekly chapters, divided into 4 themed units
- Each chapter contains:
- A memory page that includes a weekly memory verse, key facts chart, fulfillment of prophecy section
- A thought-provoking “Think About It” question that encourages children to consider how to relate to God in their own lives

This is a peek at a page of the teacher's book. See all those lines? Lots of space for notes. Yay! I'm a write notes in my Bible kind of girl, so I liked all the note space. Lots of additional information for the teacher also. That's a help with answering the why and how questions students so often have.
