Grade 6, Unit 6

The Ministry of Jesus

Dear Parents,

In our Bible explorations this year, we are looking at Scripture as one story—the story of our salvation from sin, death, and the devil through Jesus Christ, who died on the cross and arose to life at Easter to win the victory that gives us forgiveness, life, and salvation. That’s what it’s all about!

We have reviewed the Old Testament, with its focus on the coming of the Promised Savior. In this month’s unit, we examine who Jesus is—our Prophet, Priest, and King who is true God and true man, our Savior. This will lead us into next month’s study in detail of how Jesus obtained that salvation for us (a concept that we have seen is related to everything else we have learned).

In this unit, we look at Jesus’ ministry. We will look at many of Jesus’ miracles, such as the healing of a man who is paralyzed and the ten men with leprosy. We will see Jesus feeding five thousand (and more!) people in a miracle providing for daily needs and also a miracle of protection as Jesus calms a storm. His teachings will be explored in the parable of the sower and the parable of the rich fool. Recognition of Jesus as true God is studied in the narratives of Peter’s confession, the Roman centurion’s faith, and Christ’s transfiguration. And Christ’s main mission—to bring forgiveness and life—is studied in the story of the woman who is judged and the raising of Lazarus.

We pray that the study of the Scriptures will continue to be a blessing to your child, to you, and to your whole family!
