The Man Who Died on Easter
We all know the name of this man—Jesus. As Christians, we know Jesus is the only way to salvation. As Christians, we know He was much more than a mere man; He was God. We know He came to earth to live, die, resurrect, and return to heaven for us. However, how much do we really understand the person of Jesus? If we take a closer look at His character, a finer look at the meaning behind Him, we will gain a truer understanding of who He really was. We will come to see more fully another facet of the beautiful mystery of God’s plan. In the coming study, we will look at four titles of Jesus: Prophet, Priest, King, and Savior. These aspects will reveal the revelation, reconciliation, rulership, and reality of Christ.
Many of your students may be veteran Christians, but some may be relatively new to the Christian faith. Some may not be Christian at all. Be sensitive to those students who need basic explanations. This may even require outside-of-class private discussions. Do not finish this study without the entire group being able to see the mystery of Christ. Be sure they come to have an intimate relationship with Him. By recognizing Jesus’ full person, we are recognizing God.
