Unit 31: The God who leads

The early church's rapid growth led to some disagreements and problems. The leaders of the church addressed these problems by reminding everyone that Jesus is their ultimate leader and that they share the common mission given by Him to take the gospel to the entire world. 

Key Passage

Galatians 2:20 "I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me."

Big Picture Question

Why does God want us to obey Him? We obey because God loves us.


Unit 32: Easter

God's plan for redemption, which began before creation, culminates with the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Jesus was welcomed as King but days later was crucified by the people. Christ's sacrifice on the cross and subsequent resurrection provided salvation for sinners and restores our relationship with God. 

Key Passage

Romans 6:9 "We know that Christ, being raised from the dead, will never die again; death no longer has dominion over him."

Big Picture Question

Who saves us from our sin? Jesus saves us from our sin. 


Unit 33: The God who changes us

Paul and other leaders began to write letters reminding the church of how the Holy Spirit changes a person's mind and heart, making it possible to love and serve Jesus and fulfill His mission. 

Key Passage

2 Corinthians 5:17 "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” 

Big Picture Question

Who changes us? God changes us to be like Jesus.
