Exactly great divergence enters the specialists of the area exite in the reply to the simple question: What it is Educao Crist (EC)? The divergence of definitions is so great, that it is possible to find literary compositions that defend the EC, Christian education in all the ways, and therefore it adopts the Sunday Biblical School (EBD) as being the great foundation of the EC. If group and, EBD group discipulado too much of Biblical study they are EC examples, then what it is Ensino Religioso (ER)? If the EBD is the best reference the EC?
