Hurlbuts Bible Lessons by Rev. Jesse Lyman Hurlbut


Lesson I. The Angel by the Altar and in Nazareth.

(Tell Story 1 of Part VI, in |Hurlbut's Story of the Bible.|)

=To the Teacher:=

In beginning the lesson the teacher should state the subject of the lesson for the day, and ask one or two questions about it, to get the children interested at the outset. Then, the teacher should tell the story from |Hurlbut's Story of the Bible,| explaining how God sent his Angel G[=a]´br[)i]-el to Z[)a]ch-a-r[=i]´as, the old priest in the temple, to tell him that his wife [+E]-l[)i][s+]´a-b[)e]th should have a son, and that the name of the son should be J[)o]hn. Explain that J[)o]hn was to be sent into the world to prepare people for the coming of Chr[=i]st. Then tell how the same Angel G[=a]´br[)i]-el was sent to the City of N[)a]z´a-r[)e]th to a young woman named M[=a]´r[)y] to tell her that she was to have a son who was to be called J[=e]´[s+]us. Then teach the class the answers to the following questions on the subject of this lesson, and explain to the little pupils just where to find the answers to the questions of the first lesson, and have them answer the questions in class either singly or in chorus. The children should understand that the questions are to be asked them by parents or older brothers and sisters until they have fixed in their minds the story of the lesson, and are able to tell it in their own language.
