Confirmation 201 Notes [Wk. 7]: Who is Jesus Christ?
Who Is Jesus Christ?
Confirmation 201: Session 7
October 23, 2017
Two weeks ago, we studied the Trinity and talked about the way the Trinity works in a theological sense that many of you found unhelpful for your faith in Christ. The church believes that Jesus was a man. We also believe that Jesus Christ was God. Some churches go so far as to call Mary the Theotokos, the God-bearer. Today we are going to try to understand how Jesus can be both God and human.
Is Jesus human or God?
- Luke 1 & 2
- Luke 23:44-46, 24:36-43
- Acts 1:6-9
- 2 Corinthians 9:4, 11:17
- Hebrew 1:3, 3:14; 11:1
Who is Jesus to You?
- Why do you serve Jesus in the Church?
- What is it about Jesus’ story in scripture that you find compelling?
- Did you have a favorite story about his life when you were a kid?
- Has it changed now that you’re older?
- When you pray, do you ever pray to Jesus or Christ?
- Do you think it is important that we call it the “Christian” Church? Why not the “Trinitarian” Church?
- What is the most challenging story about Jesus in the Bible?
