Equipped! Tools for Exploring the Bible
A Bible survey class that will give your teen the tools they need to read and understand the Bible.
What’s the most important skill your child needs before leaving home?
Parents can be borderline obsessive about their teen graduating…
Have they taken enough science?
Are they “well rounded”?
How about volunteer hours?
…but the question you should probably be thinking about has nothing to do with what your teen KNOWS, and everything to do with what they believe.
The skill your teen needs, more than any other, is this:
The ability to not just read the Bible, but to understand it.
Most Bible courses focus on stories. Events. Details.
But without understanding the context the books of the Bible were written in, will your teen really grasp the beauty and depth of scripture?
…a fully supported Bible program that builds a habit of being in the Word every day
…engaging discussion that brings Bible events to life, and helps your teen see them as relevant and important
…video lessons that don’t just teach “what the Bible says,” but how to read the Bible, so they enter adulthood with practical skills to support their faith—for a lifetime
Sound too good to be true?
The high school Bible curriculum that gives your teen the tools, techniques, and context for exploring the Christian faith not as children, but as young adults.
How does it work?
Incorporating Equipped! into your teen’s weekly study schedule is simple, and almost hands-off for parents.
Your teen will:
Log in to the online classroom to watch two teaching videos each week. Take notes in the student guidebook to cement new learning.
Use the daily Bible reading guide for short, easy-to-digest pieces of scripture that exemplify the week’s teaching.
Add events to the year-long Timeline or maps to see how New Testament events relate to significant historical events
Answer weekly discussion questions to help your teen think more deeply about what they’re studying.
…and YOU can keep track of your teen’s progress with reports in your parent dashboard from weekly quizzes.
2 engaging video lessons to go with each of the weekly modules that will walk your student through each book of the New Testament so they will understand how to study the Bible as literature and understand the major themes in each book
Student guidebook that will assist your student in grasping the important concepts, help them learn new terms, and assist in note-taking
A timeline your students will fill in, so they can see significant Biblical events alongside historical events
Online graded quizzes and exams, so you can take a break from correcting your teen’s work
Discussion questions to help your teen think more deeply about the Scripture and how it applies to their life
Maps your student will fill in so your teen can visualize the journeys of Jesus and the apostles
NEW in 2020! New Testament Survey
In this 35-week survey of the New Testament, your teen will learn…
- The 5 important questions you need to ask for accurate interpretation of any Bible passage
- Why the parables of Jesus are some of the most surprising stories in the Bible—especially to those who heard them for the first time
- How the message of Jesus was so countercultural for its own day—and why it continues to be in our own
- One person wrote more words in the New Testament than anyone else—and his perspective on Jesus will surprise you
- Paul letters might look abstract at first, but once you catch on to the flow of his thought, you learn just how sharp, sarcastic—and entertaining—he can be
- You can’t understand Jesus or the apostles without first understanding the Jewish world in which they lived—but then their message comes to life in an exciting way
The tools you need to interpret the Bible aren’t complicated…but once your teen learns them through this class, they’ll never look at the Bible the same way again.

About your instructor
Hi, I’m Luke. Since 2001 I have been teaching young people about the Bible. My masters education at Reformed Theological Seminary deepened my passion for teaching the Bible rightly. I believe teens can be equipped with tools to study the Bible themselves and grow in their personal faith in Jesus for the rest of their lives. Enroll below, and I’ll see your teen this Fall.
