Bible in a new perspective

Bible in a new perspective

Julia Fikse | The Feather Online

This week Avery Jones, ’20, Kayden Marquez, ’20, and Samantha Portale, ’21, use sign language to say their Bible verse in Don Rojeski’s Old Testament class.

Sophomores Avery Jones and Kayden Marquez use a different method of memorization with freshman Samantha Portale to learn their weekly verse.

The girls used sign language to say the Bible verse of the week to Don Rojeski’s sixth period Old Testament class.

Marquez decided she wanted to do sign language for her Bible verse test to earn extra credit and to try a new perspective of learning the Bible.

“I decided to do the verse in sign language because I am familiar with it,” Marquez said. “I wanted to do it in sign language because it’s a creative way of saying the verse, not all people can learn the word of God like we do and understand it with their ears, some are only eligible to see it rather than hear it. Plus it got me extra credit.”

Marquez self-taught herself sign language by watching online videos and apps. She enjoys taking Old Testament to learn more about the creation of God.

“In Bible, we’re going over Genesis, so everything God created,” said Marquez. “I like being in the Old Testament because it shows our history and what originally happened. I like learning about God’s creation and how we really came to be.”

Rojeski teaches Old Testament to sophomores and freshmen students along with New Testament.
