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.
This comprehensive and flexible small group curriculum will let your students encounter Jesus as teacher, healer, shepherd, servant, savior, and risen Lord. Beginning in Jesus, the first book in the Experiencing Christ series, helps students love more deeply, live more honestly, and develop their character in Christ by applying the five biblical purposes for people in a small group setting.
