Video: How Do You Teach the Bible to People Who Can't Read?

Print Friendly and PDF

I just caught this video on YouTube from John Piper about Bible teaching with non-literate people groups. I think the topic has a strong connection to children’s ministry and how we relate God’s Word to younger children who haven’t learned to read yet.

Dr. Piper goes into many details related to missions work, but there is an obvious connections with kids ministry. It reminded me of the importance of story telling as a mode of teaching kids. When children internalize the Gospel stories, they are equipped to tell their peers about Jesus. I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comment section.
