Jesus, I Want to Get to Know You

jesusTonight, we will complete our unit on Jesus. I have completed the PowerPoint presentation that the young people began work on in class last week which covers the various aspects of Jesus’ life and ministry: the world of Jesus, the people of Jesus, the words and actions of Jesus, and the Death and Resurrection of Jesus.

I’m happy to share the PDF of the presentation: Who is Jesus – complete presentation PDF

As we view the PowerPoint, I’ll have the young people read aloud the sections that they themselves were responsible for last week. In addition, the young people will take notes in a booklet I put together for them to use. You can access that here: Who is Jesus? booklet.

Our song of the week will be Shania Twain’s “Wanna Get to Know You.”

Finally, we’ll finish by reflecting on a 10-minute PowerPoint on images of Jesus that I put together a few years back.

Lots to do…so little time! 🙂
