OUTLINES FOR BIBLE-CLASS INSTRUCTION.

I. The historical part of the portion of scripture, which constitutes the lesson—including the two great divisions, the church and the world.

II. The biographical part, including the two great classes, believers and unbelievers; with the effects which their good and bad example have had upon the church and the world.

III. The doctrinal part, including the nature and perfections of God—the character, person, offices, and work of Christ-the actual state of man by the fall, &c. &c.-marking distinctly the gradual increase of knowledge on these points from age to age, through the patriarchal and levitical dispensations, till the Christian dispensation furnished mankind with the clear, full development of God's gracious purposes towards our fallen state.

IV. T'he preceptive part, including the whole range of our duties, according to the moral law.

V. The positive ordinances, including the sacraments, types, sacrifices, the priesthood, the temple service: distin guishing between these positive institutions and moral duties—the first dependent on the will of God, and therefore mutable--the last on his nature, and therefore immutable: marking the changes of the first from time to time, with the reasons for the change, and unfolding the influence which they obviously were intended to have upon the spiritual exercises of our hearts, and our obedience to the moral law.

VI. The practical lessons which the historical and biographical parts furnish for the regulation of human conduct, in all the relations of life."

N. B. In these outlines it will be understood that general questions should be asked the pupils; and full instruction given by the Pastors under each division.

HINTS. It is highly desirable, that all, who have the REFERENCE TESTAMENT, should become familiar with the Key SHEET and Tables subjoined. For this purpose, each reference

letter should direct the eye to the corresponding letter with | its questions in the Key sheet, till all those questions sug

gest themselves as soon as the letter is seen. Every proper name, about the pronounciation of which there can be any hesitancy, should be examined in the Table till the correct pronunciation of it becomes familiar. All words found in the Etymological, Geographical, and Miscellaneous Tables, should be traced from the text to those Tables, and when found on the map which now accompanies the work, to that likewise, When reference is made to prophecy, the Reference and Chronological Tables, are to be consulted.
