Part 2 of 2 Lent Series (This part is 3-Weeks plus there is a separate folder with Holy Week Resources) on a Biblical Study of Christ's Parables
(Part of our Crossroads 7th-12th Grade Curriculum)
Suggested Calendar: April 4-18
This Lent season will focus on powerful parables preached by Jesus. Whether teaching about the purpose of fasting, the Kingdom of Heaven, forgiveness, or God's great love for humankind, Jesus had a way with words.
This powerful Storyteller left us with an amazing blueprint on how to love God and love others. His parables are filled with allegories, layers of meaning, and unforgettable messages of hope.
*This month also includes special Holy Week resources: Holy Week Journal worksheets, Parable "Tokens," and daily activities to help the teens stay engaged throughout the Pascha services.
"To you it has been given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God; but to those who are outside, all things come in parables, so that 'Seeing they may see and not perceive, and hearing they may hear and not understand; Lest they should turn, And their sins be forgiven them.'" (Mark 4:11-12)
