1. What does Paul mean by “the whole counsel of God?”
He means the full, redemptive plan of God as revealed from Gen. 1:1 to Rev. 22. It includes all the covenants and major events of Scripture.
2. Why do children need to know the whole counsel of God along with adults?
Many children today are ignorant of the story of the whole Bible. They need to know how all the books of the Bible fit together in God’s story so they have a greater appreciation for Scripture. It will also prepare the soil of their hearts for the reception of the Gospel.
