Welcome to Modulo - The The Big Picture which explores the same topics as Modulo - The Basics but is divided into separate Parts for those who would like more detail. To select each Part, click on its heading in blue.

If you're a newcomer to Christianity, or would like a revision, we recommend you start with Module 0 in order to create a ‘Firm Foundation’. It provides answers to basic questions starting with "Does God exist – What’s He Like?"

Alternatively, if you already have some knowledge of Christianity (or have done ‘Modulo – The Basics’), you can skip Module 0 and go straight to Module 1, which includes a short revision, so you won’t miss out. The first Part of each Module (numbered /0) gives an Introduction, whilst the rest of each Module (numbered /1, /2, etc) explores the detail.

Module 0 is designed to create 'A Firm Foundation' to help you make better sense of the information that follows. It's intended for newcomers to Christianity or people who feel unsure and would like to revise the basics.

It asks whether God exists, what he's like, how we can build a relationship with him, and gives an explanation that shows how to look-up references in the Christian holy book - The Bible.

  • The Modules as listed above are all available now except Module 4 which is still being prepared, so it will become available later.

  • The other Modules make sense without Module 4, so you can make a start on your exploration to give life meaning and add Module 4 when it’s published.

Module 1 begins with a short revision of the basics, which you can skip if you did Module 0 or ‘Modulo – The Basics’ and go straight to Part 1/1 instead. The rest of Module 1 looks at how God revealed himself to humanity, gave us Laws to live by, made a Covenant (an agreement) with early people to protect them if they would obey his Laws, how they, and we still today, find that too difficult so keep breaking those Laws, and the problems we all get into as a result.

  • Module1 makes use of the Bible’s 'Old Testament' to illustrate the points raised.

Module 2 considers what God did about our disobedience of his Laws in order to bring us back into a proper relationship with him – the birth, teaching, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ – hence the name 'Christianity'. There are four summaries of these events in the Bible’s New Testament, written by different authors to suit different readers. This Module use all four.
  • Module 2 makes use of the first part of the Bible's 'New Testament' known as the Gospel.

Module 3 looks at how Jesus' immediate followers, his Apostles, responded after Jesus had returned to heaven; how they spread his message to a wider world than just the Jews in Israel; and so helped to create the Christian church we know today.
  • Module 3 also uses the Bible’s New Testament, but this time the book that comes after the Gospels called ‘The Acts of The Apostles’ plus ‘Letters’ written by the Apostles to guide the church.

Module 4 will look at how the church has developed since Bible times, from the Roman era, through the Middle Ages, The Reformation, 19th century missionaries and right up to today. (This Module is not yet available).
  • We've used accounts from history to reveal how the early church developed over the centuries after the first Apostles died, right up to date.

Module 5 is a simple guide to prayers and praying to help you in your efforts to build your own relationship with God. It also provides an opening and closing prayer for each of the Modules to use at the start and end of each session, if you would like it.
  • Some people find praying difficult, but it’s the best way to get to know God so this Module has ideas to help you.

Module 6 is optional. It provides guidance for a group leader if you would like to form your own group and feel you would like help to do that.
  • Leading a group shouldn’t be difficult but can be daunting, so here’s some helpful guidance – the best advice is ‘enjoy it’.
