Hello Parents and Volunteers,
We’re continuing Unit 19! Until June 4th, we will be learning about how Jesus was Prepared for Ministry.
Watch a 3 minute overview of Unit 19 here: https://youtu.be/sbUW5J3Vvw0
Last week (May 7, 2023) in Unit 19 Session 3, we learned that JESUS WAS BAPTIZED by reading Matthew 3 and Mark 1.
- CHRIST CONNECTION: Jesus never sinned, but He obeyed God and was baptized like sinners are baptized. Baptism reminds us of Jesus’ death and resurrection. It reminds us that when we trust in Jesus, we turn from sin and start a new life—a life lived for Jesus.
This week (May 14, 2023) in Unit 19 Session 4, we will learn that JESUS WAS TEMPTED by reading Matthew 4 and Luke 4.
- KEY PASSAGE: “The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!” John 1:29 (ESV)
- BIG PICTURE QUESTION: What did Jesus do to save us? Jesus lived a sinless life, died on the cross, and rose from the dead.
- CHRIST CONNECTION: Jesus was tempted, but He trusted God and never sinned. Jesus is perfect and righteous. A perfect sacrifice was required to take away sin. Jesus was that perfect sacrifice. He died on the cross to free us from sin and to give us the power to say no to temptation.
