Solve the Mystery of Life


Children set out to solve a suspenseful mystery at a Cairo museum. In the process, they unravel the Bible’s clues about the origin and value of life.

Adventure! Intrigue! Answers in Genesis’s new Vacation Bible School program for 2010, The Egypt File: Decoding the Mystery of Life, is a mystery in the making!

Following the success of Amazon Expedition (2008) and Operation Space (2009), The Egypt File promises even more fun in its solid, gospel-centered teaching.

As they explore ancient Egypt, children ages 2–12 unravel the Bible’s clues about the mysteries of life. They’ll discover that we were specially created in God’s image to love and serve Him.

Filled with exciting apologetics teaching, which affirms that the Bible can be trusted, The Egypt File gives young people the answers they seek: who they are, where they came from, why they’re here, and where they’re going. The lessons clearly present the salvation message and our ongoing need for a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ.

Each day, kids learn a new, fun phrase to help them remember the main thought for the day:

Day 1: They can’t make a monkey out of me!
Day 2: God thought of everything!
Day 3: SMYLE! God loves you!
Day 4: Life is precious—handle with care!
Day 5: All I want to do is live each day for You!

Fun-filled songs cement the daily teaching points, so those biblical truths will stick for a lifetime. In the best tradition of great education, all the crafts, snacks, and games reinforce the day’s lesson, too.

Even if you’ve never led a VBS program, The Egypt File includes everything you need to succeed. It’s high-energy, with tools to make every day action-packed and life-changing.

Each day’s opening assembly includes an unforgettable “Design Time,” demonstrating how wonderfully God designed our bodies. Then children rotate through four fun stations: the Dig Site, Sunsational Games, Snack Oasis, and the Craft Market.

Finally, all the children gather for the Closing Assembly. Here there’s more singing, contest results, and the highly anticipated daily drama—a humorous and suspenseful mystery set in a cool Cairo museum. The drama will keep your kids and their friends coming back every day.

Training the next generation is a daunting task. But with The Egypt File, you can rest assured that your sleuths are getting the kind of solid training that will prepare them for life’s real adventures.

So grab your backpacks and prepare to decode the mystery of life! By the time the adventure is over, the VBS theme verse—Psalm 139:14—will be in every child’s heart and on his lips: “I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.”

Fossils are filled with mystery. They are commonly used to attack the biblical worldview, but in reality the Bible gives us the keys to help us solve these mysteries. How could recently discovered dinosaur tissue have survived until today? Why is the first fossil layer filled with such an astonishing variety of life (“the Cambrian Explosion”)? Read this issue to understand these and other mysteries of our world!
