This was so that they could effectively and successfully raise their children to become profitable and hard working citizens in the community. This lines up perfectly with what the Bible discusses in Proverbs 22:6, “ Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.” 6 In the Greek and Roman cultures, the primary source of education for children was the home. Parents, elders, teachers, tutors, servants, and nurses raised and molded these children into who they would become. In the beginning of a child’s life, education of reading and writing as well as the Bible was meant to mold a child to help them express their personalities and characteristics to those around them. Education was then used to teach a child to work and find their place in society. 7 In the beginning, however, most families, students, teachers, and government leaders would not learn to read and write, they would have scribes who read and wrote for them. However, after the skill of writing became more developed, education became more prominent and essential to the life and learning of both secular and Biblical Education. From the beginning, the Bible played a key role in education and went from being taught by mothers and fathers to being taught by schools and then eventualy being abandoned and even prohibited in some cultures. The Greek and Roman cultures were nto heavily reliant on the Bible, but they practiced the principles and foundations for education expressed in the Bible.
