Description

A Comparative History Curriculum to Accompany the novel, The Brotherhood of the Scroll, this course is designed to introduce you to the history, geography, and biblical references of the exile of Judah to Babylon, and how we can learn and apply this knowledge to present day events.

Clash of the Superpowers uses the parallels in the geopolitics of 600 B.C. and compares them to events happening in today’s world to engage the student in a conversation about geography, history, politics and religion. If we expect young people to be engaged in the process of self-government, we must awaken their innate curiosity to see how all these seemingly dry subjects relate to their daily lives. This course will allow you to help students explore the history of 600 B.C. when Babylon and Egypt vied for world domination, and apply the lessons learned to the modern clash of the superpowers.


Basic knowledge
  • In creating this course, it is assumed that a group of students will take the course under the direction of an adult teacher. This could be for a Home School class at the middle school or high school age level. Alternatively, adults wishing to do an in depth bible study may wish to take this course under the direction of a group leader
  • Attached please find a suggested syllabus. You are able to modify it as you wish. For example, you may decide that you only wish to assign the suggested essay assignments. Or, if working with a younger age group, you may wish to only use the assessments we've created - terminology matching, vocabulary, timeline of events
  • The syllabus has suggested teaching strategies for each lesson, as well as point values for assignments.  You may wish to modify this course for use as a section of another course (.i.e., survey of the Old Testament, or use in a history course covering World War II or the Cold War.)

What will you learn
  • This course is designed to introduce you to the history, geography, and biblical references of the exile of Judah to Babylon, and how we can learn and apply this knowledge to present day events. Using the novel, The Brotherhood of the Scroll, you will be given reading comprehension quizzes, trace the story line of events, and write essay papers about key concepts presented in the material. These essays will explore both ancient and modern clashes between world superpowers, cultural ideals, and personal application  
  • As a result of this course, you will learn how to apply the lessons of history to understand current events. You will also learn how to apply biblical principles to confront the same personal moral challenges that faced such individuals as Daniel and Jeremiah thousands of years ago
