The Word of God
Jews, Christians and Muslims have always explored the idea that God speaks. Stories of Abraham, Jacob, Moses, King David, Elijah or Mary, mother of Jesus all hinge on God’s word. The Angel speaks in Islam, and the Qur’an is revealed. Many believers in different religions believe in hearing God’s word, or even God’s voice. What do pupils think? How will they show their ideas in their art? This could take a verse of scripture and use calligraphy, or a story, or a big idea and express it creatively. Older students will also deal with the controversial nature of God’s word: who is a prophet? Might the word be false? Is it real? How do you know?
