We are continuing our unit on some of the warnings of Jesus as he prepared to go to the cross. The question for this unit is, “How is Jesus the perfect Prophet? God speaks to us through Jesus.”  Our memory verse for this unit is Deuteronomy 18:15 (NIV), “The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your fellow Israelites. You must listen to him.”  Try memorizing the verse as a family. (Preschoolers will memorize the bolded portion.)

This week, we will be looking at how some of the religious leader wanted to trick Jesus. We will see that “when the religious leaders questioned Jesus, He answered with wisdom and power. Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God. He is the Word of God, who came to show us exactly what God is like.” While the religious leaders wanted to trick Jesus through flawed earthly insight, they missed the true wisdom that all Scripture speaks to: Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. May we trust Jesus to be our way, truth, and life.
