This study The Life of Jesus
Key themes throughout show the balance Christ showed between His power to heal and to cast out demons, and His tenderness to love and care for His disciples and followers, and for us. His parables communicate a spiritual truth or religious principle through simple, but powerful, stories that students can relate to. The three four week modules explain who Christ is, and how each of us can follow His example to a fruitful and fulfilled life.
Take your younger teens into the heart and power of Jesus! The Life of Jesus Uncommon Junior High Group Study points students to Jesus' power to heal and to cast out demons, His tenderness and care for His disciples and for us. Parables are selected to communicate spiritual truths students can relate to. Two units: miracles that show us who Christ is, and parables that help us lives a fruitful and fulfilled life in Jesus.
