In this sixth volume in The Bible for School and Home series, the scene shifts to Jerusalem where Jesus is going to die. Knowing His time is limited, Jesus packs these last days full of powerful teachings, including the Parables of the Lost Sheep, the Lost Coin, the Prodigal Son, the Good Samaritan, the Ten Virgins, and the Talents. All of these are well covered in this commentary, as are the moving scenes from Holy Week leading up to the Crucifixion and Resurrection.
All eight volumes in The Bible for School and Home series, used in Charlotte Mason's schools, and intended for parents and teachers to use in preparing Bible lessons for the children in their charge. Each of the volumes contains two dozen or more lessons, preceded by the same lengthy introduction to sound teaching practices, a section which is well worth reading. For each lesson, Smyth specifies the Biblical passages to cover, then provides background information you can incorporate in your telling of the story to gain the interest of your children, carefully framed questions you can use to draw their attention to the main points, and ways you might direct the conversation to stir their affections and their actions.
