在整本聖經中，我們看到上帝不僅向以色列人發出命令——“好叫你和你的子孫在一生的日子都敬畏耶和華—你的 神”（申命記 6:2）——而且指示他們如何遵守這些命令。 父母，尤其是父親，應該教導他們的孩子（尤其是他們的兒子）敬畏主。 當孩子們對上帝和聖經有疑問時，上帝命令父親回答他們的問題。 世代之間的聯繫是上帝設計的一部分，因此，教會需要促進、培訓和展示父親應該如何教導他們的孩子。 最好和最重要的主日學老師是父親。 他們不僅要在星期天教導，而且要在每一天和每時每刻教導：“無論你坐在家裏，走在路上，躺下，起來，都要吟誦。” （申命記 6:7）
Throughout the Bible we see God not only giving commands to the Israelites – “fear the LORD your God, you and your son’s son” (Deut 6:2) – but also instructing them HOW to follow the commands. It is for parents, especially fathers, to teach their children (especially their sons) to fear the Lord. When children have questions about God and the Scriptures, God commands the father to answer their questions. The connection between generations is part of God’s design, and, as such, the church needs to promote, train, and demonstrate how fathers should and can teach their children. The best and most important Sunday School teachers are fathers. They are to teach not only on Sundays but everyday and during every moment: “when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.” (Deut. 6:7)
Therefore, when a child asks, we pray that there is a father who answers!
Biblically, most of the major feasts and celebrations were not corporate gatherings at the synagogue or temple, but family gatherings, presided over by the father, who functioned as the elder and priest of his family.
