Biblical Sources for the Reappraisal of Education

From: Volume VI, Issue 1: Fall 1985 Pages 47-51


This article considers two biblical models for the reappraisal of education in light of recent questions about the effectiveness of public schools. Christian distinctives are identified from an Old Testament model in the Book of Deuteronomy and from a New Testament model in the Gospel of Matthew. A discussion of the models is followed by specific suggestions for reform in Christian education in the local church that emerge directly from Scripture. Such an effort encourages readers to consider biblical sources in current discussions of educational reform.
