[Teaching plan for Christ, Our Sacrifice November 11,2013]

1. Have a volunteer read Isaiah 53:2-6.

a. Ask class members to share a thought on what the most important point in this text is.
b. Why did Jesus have to take on humanity in order to die for our sins?
c. Personal Application : What does it mean that Jesus had no form nor comeliness and no beauty? Was he ugly? Plain looking? frumpy? Or is this describing what He looked like on the cross? Share your thoughts.
d. Case Study : One of your relatives states: “I thought the Jews ascribed this passage as a representation of their corporate identity and experience in history. Their being persecuted by their enemies. Isn’t that a legitimate interpretation? If not, why not?” How would you respond to your relative?

2. Have a volunteer read Hebrews 2:9

a. Ask class members to share a short thought on what the main idea of this text is.
b. What does it mean that Christ had to taste death for every man?
c. Personal Application: Why did Jesus have to die for our sins? Why couldn’t God just forgive us? Share your thoughts.
d. Case Study : One of your friends states, “What does it mean that Jesus was made a little lower than the angels? Are human beings a little lower than the angels? In what way?” How would you respond to your friend?

3. Have a volunteer read Exodus 12:5, Leviticus 3:1

a. Ask class members to share a short thought on what the most important point is in this passage.
b. Why did the offering have to be without spot or blemish?
c. Personal Application : Do you bring and give the best of your time, resources, and energy to God, or just what’s left over after everything else is accounted for? Share your thoughts.
d. Case Study : One of your neighbors states, “Don’t you teach that people can overcome their sins? Does that mean God expects us to be sinless? How can anyone be holy and spotless?” How would you respond to your neighbor?

4. Have a volunteer read Hebrews 10:29-31

a. Ask class members to share a short thought on what the main idea of this text is.
b. How do people trod Christ underfoot and despite the Spirit of grace?
b. Personal Application: How do church members get to the point where they no longer look at the cross as a holy, sanctifying event? Share your thoughts.
c. Case Study : Think of one person who needs to hear a message from this week’s lesson. Tell the class what you plan to do this week to share with them.

(Note : “Truth that is not lived, that is not imparted, loses its life-giving power, its healing virtue. Its blessings can be retained only as it is shared.” MH p. 149.
