Here are the resources for Lesson 6 – History: Whose Story?

Points to consider for discussion time

  1. What are the consequences of believing the line: “It is all about me”—that my script is the only script that really matters?
  2. Contrast the “stepping stones” outlook of the Pilgrims with our modern self-centered, solve-it-now mentality?
  3. Reduced to simplest terms, what is the basic difference between the biblical understanding of history and the human-centered revisionist view?
  4. Why do you suppose so many students are bored by the study of history? How is this boredom related (if at all) to the overarching theme of this tour?
  5. Os Guinness suggests that our sense of identity is directly related to our grasp of history. What role did this concept of identity play in the experience of the Pilgrims of Plymouth Plantation? How do we as members of contemporary society compare with them in this regard?
  6. What is the point of the story Dr. Tackett relates from 1 Kings 22 regarding King Ahab and the prophet Micaiah? How does this narrative fit in with God’s declaration about Himself in Isaiah 46:9-11? How does it relate (if at all) to the problem of historical revisionism?
  7. What is the connection between this discussion of history and the concept of universals and particulars that we encountered in Lesson 2?
