LESSON 1

THE LORD JESUS CHRIST

In this first lesson of the "Growing in Grace" Bible Course, we would like to introduce you

to the 'person' of Jesus. We will investigate the might fact that Jesus is God, and the wonderful event when He (for a time) became a man.

God has made us so that He may enjoy fellowship with us. He love us, and wants to be able to communicate with us in a deep and satisfying relationship. This is only possible when we know His Son, Jesus in a personal way.

A. Jesus lived on earth for 33 years. He was a flesh and blood person, and as such, He came face to face with the same sort of situations as we do. He felt physical needs such as hunger and thirst; He felt emotions like joy and grief. He confronted the devil and the power of sin, and He experienced ordinary human desires and appetites.

The following Bible references reveal the humanity of Jesus. Look them up, consider them, and, from the list given below, fill in the gaps.

was born; became hungry; felt tired; wept; grew up; felt angry; was thirsty;

felt compassion; was physically wounded; felt joy; was tempted to sin; felt

anguish.

2. Luke 2:40 & 52 .............................................. 8. John 15:11 ...................................................

5. John 4:6 ........................................................... 11. Mark 3:5 .....................................................

6. Matthew 4:1 ................................................ 12. John 11:35 ...................................................

B. Jesus, as a man, confronted every aspect of the power of sin, and in every instance He triumphed! His final victory was over death itself. On that first Easter morning, the body was gone. The tomb was empty. Jesus was alive! He had completely won the victory over the devil and over sin. As we allow Jesus Christ to live His live through us, we will experience this total victory in our lives also.
