(Condensed from SWM Bible Question Series: BQS00)
They that have not heard shall understand” (Romans 15:21). “How can I, except some man should guide me?” (Acts 8:31). “We know that thou art a teacher come from God” (John 3:2).

I think the most important position in the Deaf ministry is the teacher. In a class or group you can sign directly to the Deaf in their language and culture. They can ask questions when they do not understand. In interpreting you must interpret the English language into the deaf language (ASL). A teacher can also use a whiteboard, gestures, and videos to teach until the Deaf understand. The class/group is a time to teach and train Deaf people. In school, students advance to the next grade level. Deaf should also spiritually grow into Christian maturity. No one can spiritually grow without the Scriptures. Remember that the Deaf class/group is also a mission field, not just another class. Why? Because public schools do not teach the Bible and many parents never learn Sign Language. You have a great responsibility. You are commanded to “teach them” the Word of God (Matthew 28:20). No one can grow without the Word of God – No one! As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby” (1 Peter 2:2). Teach Them!

Let us help you: First find the level (grade) of your deaf. How? Questions and answers reveal what they know and what they do not know. Learn! Then teach what they do not know. As they know they will grow. If they never know, they will never grow no matter how old they are. The Lord commands to “Take This (Bible) to Them.” Teach Them!

Note: Allen Snare has been asking these questions in “Fantastic Saturdays.” The results are always the same. Certain ones answer many questions, but many also miss many because they have not been taught. They are not dumb. They are simply without knowledge. As the Eunuch said, “How can I, except some man should guide (teach) me?” Teach them this series so they will understand major doctrines. BQ Series listed below. Order one set for each student.
