Education and the Bible

Question: "What does the Bible say about education?"

Answer: The book of Proverbs is filled with the instructions given by Solomon to his sons. The son is exhorted to learn from this instruction, and the result of the application of the knowledge learned is called wisdom. The word “education” may not appear in the English form in the Bible, but Scripture does say a lot about the process of education, and it begins with the parent and child. The command to parents is to nurture their children in the Lord (Ephesians 6:4) and the Greek word paideia translated “nurture” in the KJV carries with it the idea of training, education, instruction and discipline. As children learn about God, they are given the opportunity to wisely honor their parents, and the basis of that honor is the ongoing process of education and the application of what is learned. Solomon tells us that the basis of all true knowledge is the fear of the Lord (Proverbs 1:7). The word “fear” here does not carry the idea of terror or dread, but rather it is awe and reverence for the holiness and majesty of God and a reluctance to disappoint or disobey Him. Jesus said that when we know the truth, the truth will make us free (John 8:32). Freedom from fear comes from being educated in Truth.

In Romans, the Apostle Paul uses the word “know” or “knowing” eleven times. What are we to know? We are to educate ourselves in God’s Word, for when we acquire spiritual knowledge, we can then apply that knowledge to our lives in practical ways, yielding ourselves to Him and using godly knowledge to serve the Lord in spirit and truth (Romans 6:11-13). The old saying is, “We cannot use what we do not know.” This principle is doubly true when it comes to biblical education. How do we educate ourselves in the biblical sense? We read, study, memorize, and meditate on God’s Word!

The apostle Paul admonished Timothy that we are to “study to show ourselves approved unto God” (2 Timothy 2:15 KJV). The NIV renders this verse, “ Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.” The Greek word translated “study” means to give diligence, to exert oneself, or to make haste to apply oneself. Therefore, in order to learn or educate ourselves, we are told to apply ourselves to study with diligence the Word of God. The reason is also found in Paul’s second letter to Timothy. “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:16-17). The idea here is that the Word of God perfects or matures us and equips us to be educated, faithful servants. 

Biblical education equips born-again believers so that God is able to perform in them that work He has ordained (Ephesians 2:10). Biblical education transforms us by the renewing of our minds (Romans 12:2), the ongoing process of applying knowledge with the mind of Christ, “who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption” (1 Corinthians 1:30).2
