Wednesday evening we studied about Jesus' ministry beginning (Matthew 4:12-17; Mark 1:14, 15; Luke 4:14-22). We spent time reviewing the temptations and then read all 3 passages and briefly discussed them. We spent time at the stations. My first student was able to recite his first memory passage (Wise/Foolish Man). Hopefully this will spur the other students on to get their first passage memorized.
This morning's lesson is on Jesus' first miracles. It is found in John 2. Several of the previous lessons have been new information for the students. This one will definitely not be new. We studied the 7 miracles of John in a VBS a couple of years ago. The students that attended will be very familiar with this miracle. I'll give Bettye Locklair a plug here. She wrote 2 great songs to go along with this story. Click here to hear them: Jesus Turned The Water Into Wine and This Beginning Of Miracles.
Stations: As students come to class have them begin working in the stations.
Memory Work: Review NT books (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Acts, Romans). Add 1 Corinthians today. Review Beatitudes and Wise/Foolish Man.
Review: Review last week's lesson about Jesus' Ministry Begins
Lesson: We'll read from John 2 for today's lesson.
More memory work: If time is available, review the Salt passage and introduce the light passage.
