We are starting a new Student Ministry sermon series in the New Year called, LIFE: finding ours in His. We will be dedicating the remainder of the school year (5 months) to studying the life of Christ.  The central verse to this series is most likely going to be John 10:10, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”  The goal of this 5 month study is to focus on the life of Christ and how we, as believers, are called to follow Him and be like Him.  What better way to grow toward that end than studying aspects of the life of Christ?!

I’m planning on working on the outlines for the 17 week series over the Christmas break.  The goal is to have a solid framework in place as we turn the corner into the New Year.  I want it laid out early as I plan on recruiting others to teach different weeks, hopefully somewhere in the range of 6-9 weeks of the study, leaving me with responsibilities of a little more than half of the assignments.

Here is a brainstormed list of the stories and topics we’re contemplating covering next semester.  They are in no particular order at this point. If you see we’ve missed something please share your thoughts.

  • Crucifixion
  • Resurrection
  • Sermon on the Mount
  • Lord’s Prayer
  • Feeding the 5000
  • 12 years old in the Temple
  • Jesus’ Baptism
  • Jesus’ Temptation
  • Transfiguration
  • Calling the 12
  • Woman at the Well
  • Raising Lazarus
  • Throwing Tables in the Temple
  • Cursing the Fig Tree
  • Luke 15
  • Predicting His Death
  • Conversation with Nicodemus
  • Passover / Last Supper
  • Sending the 12 / 72
  • Entry into Jerusalem
  • Why Jesus Came (Luke 3, 19)
  • Ascension
  • Judas’ Betrayal
  • Peter’s Denial
  • Healings
  • Passion Week
  • Prayer in John 17
  • Washing Feet

We have several things on the list, but obviously not exhaustive when you consider everything He did in His 3 year ministry on earth.  I’d love your thoughts on this one as we lean into finalizing our plans over the next 2 weeks.
