Episode 3: Nathan Smith – Getting Students Immersed in the Bible
By the time they reach his classroom as high school freshmen, many students in Nathan Smith’s Bible classes are very familiar with the Bible. They’re also quite bored with it.
Nathan shares his take on some of the systemic blind spots in the Bible education space, and how the narrative-based, whole-book, community discussion model of Immerse has reshaped how he teaches the Bible to his students. Simply reading the words of Scripture rather than “words about the words” helps the Bible come alive for them and changes their lives.
