Asset-21@2x

As Jesus began His ministry He became more popular among the people in the region. The Jewish leaders, the Pharisees and Sadducees, started to notice. The Sadducees were a group of Jews who had more liberal interpretation of the law and did not believe in angels or the resurrection. On the other hand, the Pharisees were very strict; they thought that following all their extra rules made them righteous. Jesus taught God’s law as it was in the Holy Scriptures which made the Jewish leaders angry. However, one leader came to Jesus seeking the truth.

Featured Passage: John 1


Asset-21@2x

God had a plan for the world from the beginning. The great Being called “the Word” spoke the world into existence, but God knew because of sin the world would need a Savior. That Savior would be “the Word” Himself, sent as the Son of God to save every human being who would ever live. To get the people ready for the coming of His Son, God prepared a special messenger—a prophet—to announce that God’s own Son would arrive very soon with a plan to save the world!

  • Why did John baptize Jesus since we know that he never sinned? (You may find some help for this question in Matthew 3)
