100 Things Your Child Should Know Before Confirmation – Wisdom of the Old Testament

Rebecca Kirkpatrick is an ordained pastor in the PC(USA) and has written an interesting blog called called “Bread, Not Stones” from her experiences teaching the Confirmation Class at her local church.  She has also published a new book, “100 Things Every Child Should Know Before Confirmation.”  It’s worth reading!

Over the course of the next several months, we’ll be re-posting her blog posts for you as she tackles the privilege of guiding our children into a deeper, more trusting relationship with Jesus Christ. May her thoughts, your coaching, and your child’s active participation with their FPC Sunday School small group work together to raise your child to be a faithful follower of our Lord!


In Confirmation Class we give special attention to the varieties of types of literature contained in the Bible, including wisdom literature and prophetic literature. Ideally, students would come to class able to recognize passages like those listed below; they can learn in class how to categorize them into different styles.

I will include the full text for each passage (in the New Revised Standard Version) and then describe the conversations these can lead us to.

31. Psalm 23
32. Proverbs
33. Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
34. Isaiah 9:2-7 & 11:1-9
35. Jeremiah 18:1-11
