Recent standards and research, published by mathematics education professional organizations, place a great emphasis on “connections” in all grade levels. Through this emphasis on interrelatedness, students begin to see the subject not as a collection of separate strands, but rather as an integrated field of study.

This paper explores some specific examples of the use of analogies to connect mathematical and Biblical concepts.
