Matthew through Acts & Ancient Rome


In this study your family will cover Bible history from Matthew through Acts and the history of Ancient Rome, since the life of Christ and the early church occurred during that time period. The study of Rome will take you through many lands as you trace its rise and fall: Italy, Greece, Spain, Macedonia, more of Europe, Africa, and the Middle East. Geography will be covered through locating the regions read about and a modern-day look at the continent of Europe (since the Roman Empire was centered there). Older students will complete a study of the book of Romans, which was written to believers in Ancient Rome, and work on a six-year project of looking for doctrinal truths as they read through the Bible.
