Beginning in Jesusis the first of six books in the Experiencing Christ Together Student Edition. This collection of small group studies for students presents the person and work of Jesus through the five biblical purposes for people - fellowship, discipleship, service, evangelism, and worship. The six sessions in this book connect students with each other, help them study Scripture, teach them to apply what they're learning, and encourage them to track their spiritual progress. Each of the six sessions is comprehensive and includes Scripture, worksheets, memory verses, journaling prompts, and daily readings that let you fashion the curriculum to fit your group.
The Experiencing Christ Together Student Edition curriculum contains everything you need to facilitate small groups that want to learn more about Jesus, whether it's a complete lesson or just some prompts to move your group along. This series gives you the chance to introduce your students to the godly, human, shocking, saving person of Jesus. Each book includes all the Scripture for a given lesson, the student-friendly commentary, and individual questions and experiences to deepen and strengthen a small group. This first book in the series, Beginning in Jesus, brings your group face to face with different character qualities of Jesus. Students will understand the many aspects of Jesus' character: * Teacher: How and why is Jesus' teaching so different? * Healer: Why does Jesus restore people? * Shepherd: How is Jesus leading and caring for his people? * Servant: Why is servanthood so important to Jesus? * Savior: What does it mean that Jesus is a savior? * Risen Lord: Why is it so important that Jesus really is the son of God? Beginning in Jesus lets students love more deeply, live more honestly, and develop their character in Christ as they help each other answer His call everyday.
