Christ at the Center | A Sneak Peek at Genesis

If you’ve been around the last few weeks, you know how excited I am to share with you my latest Tiny Theologians project – Christ at the Center cards. For the last 18 months, I have been working with New Testament and Old Testament scholars (from former seminary classmates to former professors) to hone the content for these cards, and with early elementary educators to make that content accessible for kids.

The aim of these cards is to help your little ones (and big ones!) discover Jesus on every page of Scripture. From Genesis to Revelation, we want to help kids understand that the entire Bible is pointing to one person: Jesus Christ.

This set of 70+ cards walks your kids through every book of the Bible, giving them a summary of that book’s content and showing how it points to Christ. For example, the book of Genesis card tells kids that Genesis is all about the beginning. Here’s a sneak peek at the content fo that card:

“The word ‘Genesis’ means ‘beginning,’ and that’s what this book is all about. Genesis tells us the story about the very beginning of the world and the God who has no beginning. in Genesis, God created the entire universe and created mankind to have a special relationship with Him. Though the first people broke their relationship with God through disobedience, God made a promise: one day He would send a Savior who would save them from their sin. God made this promise again and more specifically to a man named Abraham. God told Abraham that he would be part of His plan to bring the Savior into the world, and that through Abraham’s family the entire world would be blessed. This was the first time God made this promise, but it was certainly not the last.”

Each card for each book of the Bible is designed to give a summary, but also to point your kiddos forward to the central theme of the Word of God: Christ Himself!

Each card also includes the author of that book of the Bible and the biblical genre of that book. Additional cards at the back of the deck explain things like what a biblical genre is and why it’s important, and how understanding the author of any given book helps us understand the original context of the writing. These cards can go as deep as you want them to, but are simple enough for your littlest ones to benefit from

And they’re coming your way on Friday! Be on the lookout for their big launch at 8am EST on November 15! ⠀⠀⠀

  • This is a very good idea! Having just become a grandfather for the first time, I’m very interested in getting these Tiny Theologians for my new grandson.
    A couple of things do come to mind in reading the “sneak peak”, though. Firstly, in line 3, you have “benign” instead of “beginning” – a very different word. Secondly, if your audience (and I do mean those who are listening) is young, then long polysyllabic words should be rarely used, even words that we think are easily explained. What I’m talking about are two words in particular (above), namely “relationship” and “disobedience”. Can I suggest “friendship” and “not obeying” (not exactly a replacement word, but maybe more easily understood) respectively? Later on, when the children have a larger vocabulary, longer or more technical words can be introduced, but in the earlier years, having to explain words might take away some of the “flow” and theme being introduced.
    I have NO basis for these comments, i.e. educational or teaching background – although my wife and son are teaching children of various ages – so it’s only my experience that prompts me to mention these things.
    However, I am very much impressed with where this is leading: carefully teaching our young ones about Jesus, and realising God’s brilliant Word gives us so much more to consider about our wonderful Saviour and the plan to save a multitude no man can number, than “just” reading one of the Gospels alone.
    Thank you for your work, and may God bless your efforts.
    In Christ,

  • I am SO EXCITED to share these with my littles and dive into them myself. “Lo, I come, in the volume of the book it is written of me…” Hebrews 10:7. What a wonderful Savior! Stoked you brought these into the shop for all of us to share in the giftings God has given you. Amy- Thank you for sharing Jesus with us!
