Children’s Bible Program – Level 3: NT Lesson 4 “The King of Kings”

Featured Passage: Matthew 4; Isaiah 9, 11


Asset-21@2x

Jesus had been baptized and was preparing to begin His important ministry on earth. God had a very important mission for Him, and He knew that the lives of every human being depended on Him to be successful in the mission. Jesus also knew that if He succeeded He would one day earn a brand new title. He was about to be tested in a way He never had been before. He was about to enter a battle against the current ruler of the world – the one whose name literally means “adversary”.

Discuss:

  1. Who is the god/ruler of this current age? (Hint: Have a look in 2 Corinthians)
  2. In what ways did Satan tempt Christ? How did Christ respond? What are some ways we can respond when we are being tempted to do something wrong?
  3. Why do you think Satan offered to give Jesus the kingdoms of the world? 
  4. What title(s) will Jesus Christ have when He returns to the earth? What will happen to Satan at that time?
  5. Christ will not return to the earth alone, the saints will be with Him. Who are the saints? What will the saints’ role be in the Kingdom of God? Why do you think Satan would be angry about that?
  6. What are some ways that life will change when Christ and the saints rule the earth?

Then Jesus said to him, “Away with you, Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only you shall serve.’ ”


Children’s Bible Program – Level 3: NT Lesson 3 “The Son of God”

Featured Passage: Matthew 1; Isaiah 53


Asset-21@2x

The prophets, like Isaiah and Jeremiah, spoke of the Messiah–the one who would come and restore the glory of Israel. They also spoke about One who would suffer and die to save all mankind. From the beginning, God planned to create human beings who could become like Him and live in His family forever and ever. God knew that because of sin, people would need to be saved from the penalty of death. So They planned that the Word would be born as a human being and would die to pay the penalty for the sins of all mankind.

Discuss:

  1. The Word had to empty himself of his divinity in order to be born as a human (Philippians 2:5-11). What does this tell us about what He is like?
  2. Who is listed at the beginning of the genealogy of Jesus Christ in Matthew? Do you recognize any other people mentioned in the list?
  3. Have a Luke at the genealogy in Luke 3 and compare it to the one in Matthew. How far back does the one in Luke go? What are some reasons the lists are different?
  4. God carefully selected Jesus’ parents. What are some of the character traits Mary and Joseph must have had to be chosen for this honor? 
  5. Christ lived without committing a single sin for His entire life (2 Corinthians 5:21). Could we have access to eternal life if Christ had sinned?

Matthew 1:21 

“And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.”


Children’s Bible Program – Level 3: NT Lesson 2 “The God of Israel”

Featured Passage: 1 Corinthians 10


Asset-21@2x

Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob all had a personal relationship with God. Moses saw God and talked with Him (Exodus 33:18-23, Deuteronomy 34:10). How can this be true when the scriptures state that no one has seen God at any time (John 1:18)? We can understand the answer to this question when we understand that there are two God beings in the God family. God, who was later known as the Father, has never interacted directly with mankind, and no man has ever seen or spoken with Him. The Word who became Jesus Christ was the God of Israel.

Children’s Bible Program – Level 3: NT Lesson 1 “The Word”

Featured Passage: John 1


Asset-21@2x

The question of who Jesus Christ is and why we should worship Him is perhaps the biggest, most life-changing, thought a human being could consider! Many people take for granted that they know the answer to this profound question, and many others have not thought about it at all. However, God reveals the answer to this question in the Holy Bible. The answer to this question starts before Genesis…before the Beginning!

Discuss:

  • Who existed in “the beginning”?
  • What does the book of John say about “the Word”? Who was the One who spoke when the world was created? Who created the first man and woman?
  • What do you think it means when John says that “the world did not know Him [the Word]”?
  • John 1:14 says “the Word became flesh and dwelt among us.” Who did the Word become? 
  • Why did Jesus Christ come to live as a human being on earth?
