About This Product This unit covers the first Sundays after Christmas through the second Sunday after Epiphany in Lectionary Year C. It is designed to help students understand 1) the concept that Jesus was both the Son of God and Son of Man; 2) the importance of Jesus as King; 3) Jesus baptism; and 4) that Spirit-led and empowered ministry to the poor, oppressed, enslaved is the core of Christian faith in the world.

Lesson 1: Growing in favor of God and our Parents-As a young teen, Jesus was faithful to both callings on His life: as Son of His heavenly Father and son of His earthly parents. (1 Samuel 2:18-20, 26; Psalm 148; Colossians 3:12-17; Luke 2:41-52)

Lesson 2: Jesus is King. So What?- Teens are told Jesus is King. This lesson helps them to understand the importance of that belief. (Isaiah 60:1-6; Psalm 72:1-7, 10-14; Ephesians 3:1-12; Matthew 2:1-12)

Lesson 3: Baptism of the Lord-At his baptism, Jesus unique relationship to God as King (v. 22 and Ps. 2:7) and Servant (v. 22 and Is. 42:1) was publicly revealed, thus launching Jesus ministry as the authorized Son of God. (Isaiah 43:1-7; Psalm 29; Acts 8:14-17; Luke 3:15-17, 21-22)

<Lesson 4: Our Life: Water to Wine- Christ brings transforming power, changing plain, tasteless, colorless existence into a full and vibrant life that is far better than what came before-and it's totally free and unlimited! (Isaiah 62:1-5; Psalm 36:5-10; I Corinthians 12:1-11; John 2:1-11)
