Why study the Bible in parallel with art history? Do they have anything in common? You may be surprised at the answers. Many times we study the Bible in an isolated environment, and we don't utilize the other resources concurrent with events in the Bible.

Much of the Bible is revealed in sequence with the progress of art. By studying both art and the Bible we can gain a bigger appreciation and understanding of both. This study also interjects some science, math, mythology, and archeology.

Jesus did much of His teaching with the use of parables. He used objects that were visible to His audience to use in a spiritual manner. His illustrations are an example of how any object or subject can be used to convey a spiritual message.


The goal of this study is to develop a stronger faith by studying the Bible in parallel with art history.

Students will be able to:
1. Discuss how they were created to be creative, using Biblical references.
2. Define aesthetics, and how it is a divine attribute.
3. Identify periods of art from Prehistoric Art to Gothic Art and make Biblical associations.


By focusing the discipline of art history, students should see how the Bible can include other studies and give students a broader view, thus increasing their faith.

All students should be able to pass a test (70%) that requires them to identify several periods of art history and to make a Biblical connection. Your scores are tracked; and when you complete each quiz, to receive course credit. You can retake the quizzes if needed. You will automatically get a notification page with your score, verification of the correct answers, and a link to a survey. Please take a few minutes to complete the survey, especially the Open Comment section. We appreciate your feedback.
