The unit of work demonstrates one inquiry approach that can be taken with students and the Christian Beliefs key idea: Christians believe that God is one God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Beginning with mysteries in the world of fiction and from student experience, the unit moves on to expose students to biblical mysteries and the ways in which God chooses to reveal himself in both the OT and NT. As students engage with this material they seek to answer questions such as: • What is the Trinity? • How does God reveal himself to people? • Is God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit? • Do they play the same role? • Do people believe the Trinity is a mystery? • Is it okay to ‘just believe’? • How do we know what God is like? • Does God communicate with you? • What do various symbols, artistic representations of God, reveal about God? • Why do I want God as my father if my earthly father is not very nice?
