  1. 1. Thinking About God (Book 4) Unit 3 – Lessons 1, 2, 3
  2. 2. Purpose • To consider the person and work of Jesus Christ. • To understand NT attempts to explain the P&W of J.C.
  3. 3. How did the disciples come to know that Jesus is Lord, the Son of God? • Through a reflection on Scripture after the Passion. • 1 Cor 15:3-5 – “3 For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures, 5 and that He was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve.”
  4. 4. Example John 12 • • • • • • • • • • John 12 12 The next day the great crowd that had come for the festival heard that Jesus was on his way to Jerusalem. 13 They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting, “Hosanna![d]” “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”[e] “Blessed is the king of Israel!” 14 Jesus found a young donkey and sat on it, as it is written: 15 “Do not be afraid, Daughter Zion; see, your king is coming, seated on a donkey‟s colt.”[f] 16 At first his disciples did not understand all this. Only after Jesus was glorified did they realize that these things had been written about him and that these things had been done to him. “Hour of glory” 23 Jesus replied, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. 24 Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds.
  5. 5. Opening of Scriptures & Breaking of the Bread • “the disciples came to recognize the Lord as the one whose passion is spoken of by the scriptures and encountered him in the breaking of bread. It is these two complementary ways, the engagement with the scriptures and sharing in the Lord‟s mean, „proclaiming his death until he comes‟ (1 Cor 11:26), that Paul specifies he had received (from the Lord himself in the case of the Eucharistic meal) and then handed down, or „traditioned‟, to later generations (cf. 1 Cor 11.23, 15.3).” p. 27 Behr, J “Mystery of Christ” • They devoted themselves to the apostles‟ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. – Acts 2:42
