1. Have a volunteer read Matthew 24:30, 25:31.

a. Ask class members to share a thought on what the most important point in this text is.
b. Why does Jesus call Himself the Son of man in these words? What is He emphasizing here?
c. Personal Application: Why is it important to know that Jesus as fully human? How does it help you? Share your thoughts.
d. Case Study: One of your relatives states: “Jesus wasn’t like us. He was God. He can’t understand our feelings, temptations, and difficulties because even though He came as a human, He was still God.” How would you respond to your relative?

2. Have a volunteer read Luke 5:20-24.

a. Ask class members to share a short thought on what the most important point is in this passage.
b. How does Jesus here reveal His divinity without openly declaring it?
c. Personal Application: How can we make sure that we don’t become as hard-hearted as the Pharisees were? Share your thoughts.
d. Case Study: One of your neighbors states, “I believe that Jesus is the Son of God. That’s all that is necessary for salvation. Believe and you’ll be saved. Adding to that belief is nothing but a works-oriented religion.” How would you respond to your neighbor?

3. Have a volunteer read John 8:58.

a. Ask class members to share a short thought on what the main idea of this text is.
b. What was Jesus stating here? What does “I am” mean?
c. Personal Application: What are some things that you have not seen, yet you believe in? How does this help us understand the idea of faith? Share your thoughts.
d. Case Study: One of your friends states, “I believe that Jesus was the Son of God, but He wasn’t God. He said He couldn’t do anything without the Father. He told His disciples, ‘why do you call me good? There is only one good and that is your Father in heaven.’?” How would you respond to your friend?

4. Have a volunteer read John 10:11.

a. Ask class members to share a short thought on what the main idea of this text is.
b. How does Jesus explain the main purpose for His coming to earth?
c. Personal Application: What does it mean to you that Jesus is the good shepherd? Read Psalm 23:1. What does this tell you? Share your thoughts.
d. 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.
