What do we teach?

The simple and right answer is the Bible!

But I wonder which bits. Most of us have a bias towards teaching our ‘favourite’ bits.

When put in proper context I was surprised how easy they found it to get the big picture from the book — God was very gracious in revealing himself in that way to that group of young people.
