About The Lesson Topics

Each topic is divided into a lesson, for a total of 8 Lessons. The last lesson will conclude the study and be more review style.

Family Bible Study shouldn’t take a long time to get the point across to your children. This is designed to be done open Bible style, reading, and discussing. The assignments are designed to bring a better understanding to your children or teens, and don’t have to be done the same day, or time. Give at parents’ (or teacher) discretion.

All lessons use the NIV or TLB Bible translations unless otherwise noted, making it easier for children and teens to follow along.

The lessons end with optional family discussion topics to help you get the most from your Bible reading.

Learning About God

As you learn about God with your family, you will be guided (through parent prompts) on how to teach this information to your children or teens so they can know God for themselves. Each parent prompt will be bolded and any other information that’s only for parents, take the time to read over the Bible study before beginning that lesson.

Before starting your bible Study…

Always be consistent in having Bible study with your family. The more you do, the more they look forward to it, the more you grow as a family.

Our kids may be tired, we may be tired; either way, each lesson will be to the point. Yet leaving room for you to expound upon scriptures for days, weeks, or even a month.

These lessons can be done day or night. Whenever your family gets together to study!

Start off small, and then go as the Lord leads you. Don’t always expect things to be perfect. Add effort and allow God to do the rest.

Lesson 1 | Who Is God: The Godhead and Trinity

Memory Verse: Job 33:4 NKJV
“The Spirit of God has made me,
And the breath of the Almighty gives me life.”

Who is God?

The Bible is the Word of God and in it we find the very “nature” (character of God) and authority (person in command) of God. The Bible allows us to learn a lot about God through scripture.

Parents: Ask, “Who do you think God is?” Give everyone time to answer.

God is big, bigger than anything you could ever see.

He is stronger, stronger than anything and anyone in this world. He is our Abba!

“Now we call him, “Abba, Father.” Romans 8:15 NLT

We can understand God in 3 persons but 1 God. This is called the “Trinity” or “Godhead.”

  1. Father (our Daddy) Rom 8:15, Mark 14:36
  2. Son (that’s Jesus) Heb 3:6, Isa. 9:6
  3. Holy Spirit (like an invisible wind, our counselor, comforter, encourager, and helper.) John 14:16, Gal. 4:6

We learn as we search scripture, that God’s plan is revealed in the Trinity.

  • The Father who is God, [1]holds the headship (or first in authority) and redemption (or salvation, meaning saving or being saved) for all things.
  • The Son (Jesus) is God in the flesh (or human form, more about that later) and carries out the plans of God. God creates and saves (redeems) by Jesus Christ. That’s how we have received our salvation, by believing in Christ Jesus as our Lord and Savior! Jesus is the very Word of God:

Read John 1:1-5

“In the beginning the Word already existed.
The Word was with God,
and the Word was God.
2 He existed in the beginning with God.
3 God created everything through him,
and nothing was created except through him.
4 The Word gave life to everything that was created,
and his life brought light to everyone.
5 The light shines in the darkness,
and the darkness can never extinguish it. (NLT)

  • Finally, [2]The Holy Spirit is the 3rd person in The Trinity. He carries out the plans of The Father and The Son.

Note: There are so many scriptures in the Bible that talk about the “Godhead” or “Trinity.” You can find my full reference in the index of the curriculum.

Now that we have an idea about who God is, we will look at his creation in Lesson 2 of this Bible study!

Lesson 2 | The God of Creation: The World is Created

Memory Verse: Genesis 1:3-4 NKJV
 “Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. 4 And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness.”

Note: Getting into God’s creation can be a bit lengthy for younger kids, although I did my best to get to the point. If you need to, you can divide this lesson, and divide the Optional Family Discussion questions in half for another day.

Yesterday, we focused on who God is as the Godhead and the Trinity. Today, we will observe the Trinity at work in the creation of the world!

Parents: Ask, How long do you think it took God to create the world? 

(Give time for answers. You can also pave the way by talking about some of the things in God’s creation, like the sun, moon, stars, planets, and oceans, etc. All these go into consideration when thinking about God’s creation.)

Let’s look to the Bible, Gods Holy Word, to find out exactly how long it took God to create the world and what He did each day.

Turn to Genesis 1, the very first book in the Bible, and we will read from verses 1-31:

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was formless and empty, and darkness covered the deep waters. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters.
3 Then God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. 4 And God saw that the light was good. Then he separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light “day” and the darkness “night.”
And evening passed and morning came, marking the first day.
6 Then God said, “Let there be a space between the waters, to separate the waters of the heavens from the waters of the earth.” 7 And that is what happened. God made this space to separate the waters of the earth from the waters of the heavens. 8 God called the space “sky.”
And evening passed and morning came, marking the second day.
9 Then God said, “Let the waters beneath the sky flow together into one place, so dry ground may appear.” And that is what happened. 10 God called the dry ground “land” and the waters “seas.” And God saw that it was good. 11 Then God said, “Let the land sprout with vegetation—every sort of seed-bearing plant, and trees that grow seed-bearing fruit. These seeds will then produce the kinds of plants and trees from which they came.” And that is what happened. 12 The land produced vegetation—all sorts of seed-bearing plants, and trees with seed-bearing fruit. Their seeds produced plants and trees of the same kind. And God saw that it was good.
13 And evening passed and morning came, marking the third day.
14 Then God said, “Let lights appear in the sky to separate the day from the night. Let them be signs to mark the seasons, days, and years. 15 Let these lights in the sky shine down on the earth.” And that is what happened. 16 God made two great lights—the larger one to govern the day, and the smaller one to govern the night. He also made the stars. 17 God set these lights in the sky to light the earth, 18 to govern the day and night, and to separate the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good.
19 And evening passed and morning came, marking the fourth day.
20 Then God said, “Let the waters swarm with fish and other life. Let the skies be filled with birds of every kind.” 21 So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that scurries and swarms in the water, and every sort of bird—each producing offspring of the same kind. And God saw that it was good. 22 Then God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply. Let the fish fill the seas, and let the birds multiply on the earth.”
23 And evening passed and morning came, marking the fifth day.
24 Then God said, “Let the earth produce every sort of animal, each producing offspring of the same kind—livestock, small animals that scurry along the ground, and wild animals.” And that is what happened. 25 God made all sorts of wild animals, livestock, and small animals, each able to produce offspring of the same kind. And God saw that it was good.
26 Then God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us. They will reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the livestock, all the wild animals on the earth, and the small animals that scurry along the ground.”
27 So God created human beings in his own image.
In the image of God he created them;
male and female he created them.
28 Then God blessed them and said, “Be fruitful and multiply. Fill the earth and govern it. Reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, and all the animals that scurry along the ground.”
29 Then God said, “Look! I have given you every seed-bearing plant throughout the earth and all the fruit trees for your food. 30 And I have given every green plant as food for all the wild animals, the birds in the sky, and the small animals that scurry along the ground—everything that has life.” And that is what happened.
31 Then God looked over all he had made, and he saw that it was very good!
And evening passed and morning came, marking the sixth day. Gen.1:1-31NLT

Parents: Ask, “Did you catch the reference to the Godhead” as we read through the scriptures?”

First,we see Jesus, as God said, “Let there be light” in verse 3. Yesterday, we read John 1:1-5 and verses 4-5 said,

“The Word gave life to everything that was created, and his life brought light to everyone. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.”

Therefore, we know that Jesus is the Word and The Light of the World, who brought LIFE into the world!

Before that, we glimpse the Holy Spirit at work in verse 2, “and the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters.”

Look at that, ALL 3 persons of the Godhead were at work in the creation of the World!

Optional Family Discussion Questions:

  • How many days did it take God to create the world?

Six days.

  • What did God do on the 7th day and why? What does this tell us?

He rested, see Gen. 2:1

  • What is some things God created on each of the 6 days?

Look over the lesson scripture.

  • Why do you think God created man and woman last?

Answer varies.

Lesson 3 | Jesus, “God in The Flesh”

Memory Verse: Hebrews 10:5 NKJV
“Therefore, when He came into the world, He said: “Sacrifice and offering You did not desire,
But a body You have prepared for Me.”

Yesterday, we observed creation and saw God at work in the beginning of the world.

Today, our focus is on Jesus, God in the “flesh,” or “human form.”

Parents: Ask, “Who is Jesus to you?” (Take some time to discuss this question amongst your family or class.

Jesus is indeed God! As we saw from scripture, the father, Son, and Holy Spirit were all present during the creation of the world.

Although God made the world a wonderful place to live, people refused to obey God; starting with the [1]sins of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, in Genesis 3:1-6.

So, God prepared ahead of time, read Hebrews 10:5-7

Therefore, when He came into the world, He said:
“Sacrifice and offering You did not desire,
But a body You have prepared for Me.
In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin
You had no pleasure.
Then I said, ‘Behold, I have come—
In the volume of the book it is written of Me—
To do Your will, O God.’ ”
NKJV

People in the Bible days would offer sacrifices for their sins (animals), whenever they did something bad. But this didn’t please God because they didn’t really mean it.

Therefore, God prepared the “body” of Christ to be the sacrifice for our sins. He would come down to save us Himself- God in the flesh (or human form)!

Ephesians 1:7 tells us, “He is so rich in kindness and grace that he purchased our freedom with the blood of his Son and forgave our sins.” NLT

Parents: Ask, “Do you remember the [2]Christmas story? How was Jesus born?

That was God’s plan to save us all along! Jesus was the Holy Sacrifice, his death fulfilled God’s will.

Note: Parents or teachers, if you have older children or you yourselves -go back and read Hebrews 10:1-18 for a deeper understanding of Jesus’s role in the Godhead, and how animal sacrifices were insufficient. They could never replace what Jesus did on the cross for us. You can always complete an in-depth study yourselves using all scripture references and the Index, at the end of this study.

Optional Family Discussion Questions:

  • Why was God not pleased with our sacrifice of animals?

Hebrews 10:6

  • How did God prepare ahead of time, for our sins? (You can find more Biblical references for discussion in Romans 3:25-26)

He prepared the body of Christ to be the sacrifice for our sins.

  • Discuss the Christmas story and Christ coming into the world.

Luke 2:1-20

Assignments:

See the curriculum for assignments that reinforce this lesson!


[1] Luke 2:1-20

[2] If time permits, read Gen 3:1-6 with your family (or class) for a mini lesson.

Lesson 4 | Jesus and The Baptism

Memory Verse: Galatians 4:4 NLT
“But when the right time came, God sent his Son, born of a woman, subject to the law.”

As we learn more about who Jesus is, the scripture makes it clear that He is the Son of God and STILL God in the flesh (or human form)!

Today, we will look at the baptism of Jesus before he started His earthly ministry. In the event of Jesus being baptized, we can see the Godhead again at work.

Open your bibles to read Luke 3:2-3 and 21-22 of Jesus’s Baptism:

“while Annas and Caiaphas were high priests, the word of God came to John the son of Zacharias in the wilderness. 3 And he went into all the region around the Jordan, preaching a baptism of repentance for the remission of sins…” NKJV

“One day when the crowds were being baptized, Jesus himself was baptized. As he was praying, the heavens opened, 22 and the Holy Spirit, in bodily form, descended on him like a dove. And a voice from heaven said, “You are my dearly loved Son, and you bring me great joy.” NLT

Parents: ask “Can you name all the instances in which you recognized the trinity from today’s reading?” (Give your family time to answer the question before continuing)

The scripture lays out a clear reference to the trinity, as separate and distinct persons. Let’s look:

  1. We see the Father speaking from heaven.
  2. The Son was on earth praying to the Father in heaven.
  3. We see the Holy Spirit descending (coming down) from the Father out of heaven (in the bodily form of a dove) to anoint and endue (supply, provide) with power, the Son on earth, Jesus!

*This act was a sign to John the Baptist that Jesus was indeed the Son of God (see John 1:29-34). This was his testimony.

Note: Parents or teachers, if you have older children or you yourselves -check out the references from these scriptures Isaiah 11:1, 48:16, 49:1-5, 61:1.

Just like the three persons of God were with Jesus, they are also with us too!

The Holy Spirit helps us to see who our God really is.

God the Father is the creator, the One true powerful God, who wants us to choose and love him above anything else.

Jesus came to earth to show us HOW to LOVE God and to reveal WHO God IS. Jesus also came to redeem (save) us and [1]adopt us as His children. When we choose Jesus, we are choosing LIFE!

Optional Family Discussion Questions:

  • If you were baptized, do you remember what that felt like? Discuss with your family your baptism experience (or theirs).

Answers vary.

  • How did we see the Godhead during Jesus’s baptism?

Reflect on points 1-3 in the lesson.

  • Who baptized Jesus and what came down from heaven to anoint Him?

John The Baptist baptized Jesus and the Holy Spirit as a dove, came down to anoint Jesus.

Lesson 5 | The Image of The Invisible God

Memory Verse: Colossians 1:15 NLT
“Christ is the visible image of the invisible God.
    He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation…”

Yesterday, we saw Jesus getting baptized and all three persons of the Godhead present: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Today’s lesson will focus on the preeminence of Christ.

Parents: Ask “Do you know what the term “preeminence” means.”

(Give them time to answer, explaining to younger students the definition below.)

The term “pre-em-i-nence” means to be first. Jesus Christ was first: in importance, in honor, and [1]exaltation.

Remember when you were asked about the Christmas story in Lesson 3? We also read Hebrews 10:5-7 and learned that God prepared a body for Himself, and that body was Christ Jesus. Let’s continue from there by reading Colossians 1:15-16

“Christ is the visible image of the invisible God.
He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation,[a]
16 for through him God created everything
in the heavenly realms and on earth.
He made the things we can see
and the things we can’t see—
such as thrones, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities in the unseen world.
Everything was created through him and for him.” NLT

You see, Jesus Christ has always been. He is not only “pre-em-i-nent” but SUPREME (superior, highest), He is “the visible image of the invisible God.” We see God through Jesus.

“You cannot see My face; for no man shall see Me, and live.”

Exodus 33:20

So, we are able to see God by looking at Jesus, the image of the “invisible” God. God in human form!

Jesus is an equal member of the “Godhead” (trinity) from all eternity, as the Only Begotten Son of God.

The term “Son of God,” refers to His humanity (meaning human) not [2]deity. It doesn’t take away the power of Christ as God, being in human form as the Son of God.

Before, Christ existed as a “Spirit being” carrying out the plans of creation in the [3]heavenly realms and on earth, creating everything as we know it.

Remember the six days of creation discussed in Lesson 2? Our God was hard at work and Christ died for the world He created!

“He existed in the beginning with God.
God created everything through him,
and nothing was created except through him.”
John 1:2-3 NLT

Note: This lesson will continue with the rest of the reading for Colossians in Lesson 6.

Optional Family Discussion Questions:

  • What does the word “pre-em-i-nence” mean?

The term “preeminence” means to be first.

  • How is Jesus “preeminent?”

Jesus Christ was first: in importance, in honor, and  exaltation.

  • Does Jesus, being the Son of God take away His power “as God?”

The term “Son of God,” refers to His humanity (meaning human) not  deity. It doesn’t take away the power of Christ as God, being in human form as the Son of God.

  • Why can’t we “see” God?

“You cannot see My face; for no man shall see Me, and live.”

Exodus 33:20

We see God by looking at Jesus, the image of the “invisible” God. God in human form!

Lesson 6 | The Radiance of God’s Glory

Memory Verse: Hebrews 1:3 NIV
“The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.”

Yesterday, we learned about Christs Preeminence before all creation, that Jesus is indeed the image of the Invisible God and has always existed.

Today, we will finish reading in Colossians about Jesus. Turn your Bibles to Colossians 1:17-19:

“He existed before anything else,
and he holds all creation together.
18 Christ is also the head of the church,
which is his body.
He is the beginning,
supreme over all who rise from the dead.
So, he is first in everything.
19 For God in all his fullness
was pleased to live in Christ…” NLT

Again, we learn that Jesus existed before anything else, He is eternal (meaning without end or beginning). Without Jesus Christ, everything would fall apart, as He “holds” everything together.

Jesus is also in charge of the church. That’s the church that you attend, or even the church inside your home!

He is the “head” of the church, which is His “body”. For this reason, we are the body of Christ! [1](verse 18)

Colossians 1:18, also tells us that Jesus is “supreme over all who rise from the dead,” or [2]“firstborn from the dead.”

In fact, after Jesus died for the world He created, by dying on the cross for our sins, He then rose on the 3rd day to give us everlasting life! This is why we celebrate Resurrection Day, or as many people call Easter.

The best part is, Jesus no longer must die for us. He died once and for [3]all and now lives sitting at the [4]right-hand side of God:

“Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us.” Romans 8:34

Jesus was the Holy Sacrifice, His death fulfilled God’s [5]will. All those brought back to life by God in the Bible, lived then died all over again (One such was Lazarus John 11:38-44).

God in all His fullness: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, was pleased to live in Christ.

Therefore, Jesus Christ is God. 100% God and 100% man!

Optional Family Discussion Questions:

  • How is Jesus “eternal?”

Jesus has no end or beginning.

  • Why are we (Christians) called The Body of Christ?

Because Jesus is the “head” of the church, which is His “body”.

  • Discuss or name some of the people in the Bible who were brought back to life by God, explain how Jesus is greater because He never has to die again.

Answers vary, two such accounts can be found in the assignment for ages 9+.

  • What is the “fullness” of God?

God in all His fullness: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, was pleased to live in Christ.

Lesson 7 | God’s Plan: DELIVERANCE!

Memory Verse: John 18:37
Pilate said, “So you are a king?”
Jesus responded, “You say I am a king. Actually, I was born and came into the world to testify to the truth. All who love the truth recognize that what I say is true.” NLT

Today we will read a [1]dramatic poem written about God’s Plan of Deliverance for us. This poem was exclusively written for a Christmas Special we have on site, using Isaiah 53 in 17 stanzas.

[2]A Magnificent Plan, it was!

It’s what God had in mind all along, to bruise HIM and fill HIM with grief.
That Christ give himself as an offering for our filthy sins, so that He’d see life come from it; a multitude of children- heirs!
For Christ DIED Once for ALL SINS, wanting to bring us safely home to God. And though His body died, His spirit lives on, and Gods plan will deeply prosper through Him. (1 peter 3:18)
Who would have thought Gods saving power would look like this?
We never saw it coming; we searched for a handsome king on a white horse, ROYALTY, we thought.
“But what good could come out of Nazareth?” (John 1:46)
Yet, when Christ sees what’s accomplished by the anguish of His soul, He WILL be satisfied!
Because of His experience on the cross, He has counted YOU and ME righteous before Him, God.
An extravagant reward, the best of everything, and highest honor to Christ!
Because He looked death in the face and didn’t flinch, yes He embraced the company of the lowest.
Christ took on His shoulders the sins of us all.
He took up the cause of the “black sheep,” taking the title away from us.
Yes! Hooray! We are free to live RIGHTEOUSLY through Him.
“For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world…” He said. (John 18:37)
Immanuel, God is truly with us! (Matt 1:23)
“For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the GOVERNMENT will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called WONDERFUL, COUNSLOR, MIGHTY GOD, EVERLASTING FATHER, PRINCE OF PEACE.” (Isaiah 9:6)
Yes, it was JESUS CHRIST.

Lesson 8 | The Conclusion: All That God Is

Memory Verse: Proverbs 9:10
“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom,
    and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.” NIV

All this week, we focused on God and what makes God who He is. It’s important that we know who God is and have a solid foundation in our faith.

“Knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.” -Proverbs 9:10

Today, we will review what we have learned so far.

Note: if this lesson seems too long for younger students, you can allow another day for the review. Divide the Optional Family Discussion questions in half to answer one or two a lesson.

First, we learned that God is our Father, whom we call Abba (Romans 8:15)

He is also part of the Godhead, which is [1]Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Second, we learned that Jesus represents God the Father in the Flesh (or human form). Christ is also:

  • Head over the Kingdom (Col 1:13; Rev. 20).
  • He is our redeemer and The “image of the Invisible God.”  (col. 1:14; Matt. 26:28)
  • Jesus Christ is firstborn over ALL creation, and He is the Creator of ALL things (Col 1:15-16).
  • Jesus holds everything together and He is head over the church. (Col. 1:17-18, 24; Heb. 1:3)
  • Jesus is an eternal being and firstborn from all who have died, and is preeminent (Col. 2 1:15,1:17, 18, 18-19 Micah 5:2).

We conclude that Jesus Christ is indeed God. His human body was made to become the ultimate sacrifice for our sins. (John 3:16)

The fullness of the Holy Spirit rested on Jesus and worked through His body. [2]Remember when Jesus was baptized? The dove was a sign to John of who Jesus really was.  The fullness or totality, of God is found in Christ. [3]Everything that can be said of God can be said of Jesus. (Col. 1:19)

Because of what Jesus did on the cross, the fullness of redemption (His saving us), came through Him. We are compleate in Christ, made whole by His grace.

This also makes Him head, over all principality (That’s over all the angels) and power. (Col.1:10-18)

You see , God created and loved us so much, that He planned to rescue us even before we were created. Because He knew that would be the only way for us to be with him FOREVER in heaven.

Read: John 3:16-17 together with your family:

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.”  NIV

Parents: ask, “Do you see how much God loves us and our family?”

God, Jesus came to save us, to give us everlasting life IF we believe in Him! There’s only one way to get to heaven and live with Jesus. That’s to accept Christ as our Lord and Savior and follow Him.

That’s why learning about God is so IMPORTANT.
