The workbook, rather than weekly take-home worksheets, is used because a book that a child has diligently worked on, week by week, over the course of the study will provide the child with a lasting reminder of the lessons and key themes. The workbooks are kept in class each week. Children take their workbook home at the completion of the course. The workbooks can then serve to assist parents in reviewing with their children precious truth about God.

The Bible is one complete true story that progressively reveals God's redemptive plan, which comes to complete fulfillment in the Person and work of Jesus Christ. In the Beginning...Jesus begins with a historical mystery—Jesus' death on the cross—and asks the questions: "What really happened here?" "Why did Jesus die?" and "Who did it?".
To find the answers to these questions, the study goes to the beginning of the Bible narrative in Genesis and then moves chronologically through the Old Testament text as students search for clues that foreshadow the coming of Jesus and His redemptive work on the cross. Special emphasis is given to showing that the Bible is God's story from beginning to end and that Jesus is the key to understanding the story.
