Music is a gift from the God who created our universe. In our collective worship, He wants us to speak to one another in Psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. (Ephesians 5:19) Our Bible classes can also benefit from this gift because singing incorporates rhythm, repetition and rhyme. Those 3 elements can greatly enhance learning!
We already do this for many things like learning the books of the New Testament. We also sing the 12 Apostles song and the 12 Sons of Jacob song.
This article presents my all time favorite Bible Class song resource, Sing A Story by Jewel Kendrick. She went through the entire Bible setting words of Bible stories to familiar folk tunes. She wrote an Old Testament book, a New Testament book and a book for Acts. They may be purchased here: https://store.bibleclassworkshop.com/products/560-sing-a-story/
Her songs are time tested and the kids really enjoy the songs. Kids retain facts and details because the songs are engaging and even fun. The song below is from Sing A Story by Jewel Kendrick. It is sung to the tune of “I’ve Got the Joy, Joy, Joy”.
My favorite way to include these in Bible classes is to display them on standard poster board. I display them on an easel so the whole class can sing together.
