Objective: What do history and the Bible tell us about walls in the ancient world?
Join us as we explore two of the most famous and formidable walls in the Bible, the walls of Jericho, and Nehemiah's Wall.
First, visit the Walls of Jericho, the oldest in the ancient world. Why did they fall before the Israelites without a battle? Were they doomed by a massive earthquake or a miracle of God?
Next, come with us as we explore Nehemiah's Wall. Built up under threat of imminent attack, Nehemiah's Wall became one of the greatest feats of military engineering history. Nehemiah's Wall would serve to protect Jerusalem for the next four centuries, providing an era of unparalleled peace and prosperity.
Learn why these walls were built, and find out what the scriptures tell us about 'Walls in the Bible.'

GOD GAVE YOU THE POWER TO LEARN ANYTHING
Each class is segmented into short, easy-to-understand lessons tailored for each grade level. Each lesson comes with a video, a complete lesson plan, a study guide and an assessment. Objectives and expected learning outcomes are also included. Teachers are invited to use these lessons as a supplement to their existing curriculum, or as a centerpiece. All lessons are built using magisterial content including the New Jerusalem Bible, the Catechism of the Catholic Church (2nd ed), and other orthodox Catholic sources.
Catholic Online School takes learning out of the classroom and puts the control right into the hands of the student. It is a self-paced learning system that gently guides any student through the learning process. With the lack of quality education that many countries are suffering from at the moment, Catholic Online School truly could not have come about at a better time.
