Here is an outline of Scottish history, and is very similar to the one we used for a Scotland Reformation presentation we did at our church with pictures from the Scotland Faith and Freedom Tour.
1. The British Museum - The Meaning of History
2. Kilmartin Cairn, 1500BC-200AD – Danger from within and without - A Contrast and a Warning
3. Iona, 520AD-800AD – The Power of the Gospel reaching the entire world and the Perpetuity of the Church
4. Urquhart/Loch Ness, 540AD – Crossroads of History - visited by Columba who founded Iona, attacked by one of Wallace's generals, and by a Jacobite force.
5. Edinburgh Castle / Margaret's Chapel 1100AD – Contrasts with Popery
6. William Wallace, 1250-1305AD – The Importance of Jurisdiction. The English can not rule Scotland, they are a separate jurisdiction.
7. Robert Bruce, Battle of Bannockburn, Declaration of Arborath, (Reign 1306-1329) – Precursor to the American Revolution
8. Highland Games established in Ceres to commemorate the battle of Bannockburn, 1315
9. St. Andrews, (Scottish Reformation) 1528-1547 – The blood of the martyrs
10. John Knox, 1510-1572 – Fearing no man, fearing God alone
11. Covenants, 1620-1660 – God’s people banding together
12. Covenanters, 1660-1688 – “There’s nae joukin in the cause of Christ” - James Guthrie
13. Puritans and Jacobites, 1688-1788 - Examples of Righteous and Unrighteous Rebellion
14. Livingston, 1813-1873 – Worked for Evangelism, Exploration and Emancipation
15. Spurgeon, 1832-1892 – The power of preaching
16. What this all means – we must spend and be spent for the bride of Christ
