Perspectives in Covenant Education – March 1976

The March 1976 edition of Perspectives in Covenant Education is a trove of timeless treasures.  You don’t want to miss Dr. Dwight Monsma’s article “Parental Education” as he builds on what Rev. Engelsma wrote in the October 1975 issue for parents. Biblically based and thoroughly reformed, the heart of this article is its practical implications ...

A SIGNIFICANT QUESTION – March 31

Before the three hours of darkness fell, while Jesus hung on the cross, He answered a question; but during those hours of darkness He asked a very significant question. In answer to the penitent thief, who requested being remembered, when Jesus would come into His kingdom, Jesus assured him that he would be with Him in paradise that very day. But His own question is the one David asked in Psalm 22:1, namely, "My God, my God, why hast Thou forsaken me?" This question expresses the awfulness of the agony which He was suffering for our sins. It was not a physical, bodily misery about which He cries. Nor was He question¬ing God's justice in pouring all this upon Him. He knew full well that He must lay down His life for His sheep, and was willing to do so. No, the question expresses His anguish, or, if you will, the extreme cost spiritually for Him to blot out our sins. He loved God perfectly and delighted in God's fellowship. Even a momentary or partial denial of that fellowship would be agonizing for Him. And now He was completely cut off from enjoying that love of God and of sweet communion with Him. Note that He has not forsaken God. For He cries out, "My God, my God." And as our versification has it: My God, my God, I cry to Thee; O why hast Thou forsaken Me? Afar from Me, Thou doss not heed, Though day and night for help I plead. We have, no doubt, many a time run to God in prayer, seeking His help to benefit our earthly lives. But the question is whether we are Christ-like in this respect that we want to taste God's love, and would consider it a tremendous loss to be ...

Why Teach? is meant to be an encouragement to our young people to prayerfully consider teacher. Just as Hannah prayed for a child whom she could give to the Lord to be a Godly leader for Isarel, we ask that Godly parents promote as much as possible to calling of being a teacher in our Protestant Reformed schools.
