Honor to serve and teach ... anchored in the Explore the Bible series, note the original PowerPoints were dynamic, such a great program to show the flow of points, trace a path on a map, emphasize, or simply for creativity or humor.  Most of the photos came from Wikipedia, with the charts and tables from sources like the Biblical Illustrator, the Encyclopedia Judiaca, OT comm. of Keil and Delitzch, Holman Bible Dictionary, Zondervan Atlas of the Bible, Carta Bible Atlas, Holman Bible Atlas, and book-specific commentaries.  Study notes by Virginia Haynes were resourced for various women in the Bible.  Proper attribution was given where possible to original art, as with Michelangelo, etc., and to quotes of famous persons.  See also:
