Music Isn’t Just for Worship

Using Music to Teach BibleAre your Bible teachers using music in the classroom beyond opening or closing exercises as a means of praising God?

Yes, music, both instrumental and vocal, tends to be a favorite way to worship the Lord (Ps. 150).  Music, however, also serves as a biblical means of teaching.

teach and admonish one another with all wisdom
as you sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs
with gratitude in your hearts to God. (Col. 3:16)

Using music, a teacher can do the following:

  • teach new doctrine
  • reinforce learned truths
  • help students memorize Scripture
  • get students’ attention
  • appeal to emotions as well as understanding to stir up or inspire
