Item description for Jesus and His Kingdom of Equals: An Interdenominational Curriculum for 4th-7th Grades on the Life and Teachings of Jesus by Cheryl G. Binkley & Jane M. McKeel...
Jesus and his Kingdom of Equals introduces students in grades 4 to 7 to an interpretation of the historical Jesus based on contemporary biblical research, principally from the Jesus Seminar.
In thirty-three weekly lessons students experience an unfolding narrative of a Jewish reformer who saw through the hypocrisy and elitism of first-century Roman Palestine. This itinerant sage brought a message of affirmation and egalitarianism to oppressed and powerless Galileans and described a kingdom of love, not in the future but already present in the hearts of people.
Drama, simulations, crafts including clay and weaving, songs, social service initiatives, and other creative hands-on activities reinforce values concerning such teachings as respect for all, sharing worldly goods, conflict resolution, friendship, and forgiveness.

Excellent curriculum Apr 5, 2010
The curriculum is very well designed. There are many types of activities that keep the children engaged. There is also lots of help for the instructors and the author helps you anticipate and prepare for possible questions and discussion that may emerge. It is based on the historical Jesus so there is less of an emphasize on miracles and more on the time in which Jesus lived and some of his key teachings.
