Catechism is used as a period of instruction in the Christian faith and comes in the form of questions and answers. It is designed to assist young people and new believers alike, in learning and understanding the summary of Christian beliefs and practices contained in the Word of God. The word "catechism" comes from a Greek word, which is used numerous times in the New Testament and refers to a systematic approach of instruction, which very often includes dialogue in the form of questions and answers. For example, in the gospel account of Luke, he states, “that you may know the certainty of those things in which you were instructed,” Luke 1:4. The word instructed or catechized reveals that part of the Divine purpose behind the writing of Luke’s gospel, was to ensure that people knew with absolute certainty the Word of God that they had heard from Jesus and the apostles. You might say, that Luke’s gospel serves as a means of catechism to further instruct believers in the truth.
