Topic: Jesus is God’s Son
Key Verse: A voice from heaven said, “this is my Son, and I love him. I am very pleased with Him.” Matthew 3:17
Whose son is Jesus? The Biblical reality is that Jesus is God the Father’s only begotten Son? Jesus is also Joseph’s son even though his virgin wife Mary was a full-fledged surrogate. Jesus is called the Son of God and the Son of Man. In the same breath we say that he is not only a son but He is God. How do you explain all that to a 2nd Grade Boy? You have to be pretty smart to be a 2nd Grade Teacher. I hope I am up for the task.
The question we spent most of our time today on was, “is Jesus God or is Jesus God’s Son?” The answer is yes. He is God and He is God the Father’s Son. Here is an illustration we shared with the boys. Enjoy!
This series is a journal of real lessons that we are working on in my son’s 2nd grade boys Sunday school class that I teach at our Church. What a great honor to be assisting our boy’s parents in raising up the next generation. Where do the next spiritual giants come from? Where does the next set of godly moms and dads come? Where do our leaders of the future come? We think a good number of them just started the 2nd Grade. Pray for us as work on understanding key concepts of the faith. If you have any ideas that you think you can add to our topic jump on in and leave a comment, that is if you think you are smarter than a 2nd Grade Sunday school teacher.
