Jesus Christ is fully God and fully human

02 Mar

Last night, I taught the Awana T&T lesson at First Central Bible Church in Chicopee, MA. The theme was “Jesus is fully man.” The main idea of the lesson is that Jesus Christ is both fully God and fully human. When he lived on earth, Jesus experienced the same kind of struggles that we do, but he never sinned. Jesus became human to save us from our sins.

To help the kids grasp the idea, I had them do a Scripture search. We read a number of passages and then talked about whether the verses described Jesus as God or as human. As we went through the lesson, we put the information into the following chart.

Jesus Christ

Fully God

Fully Human

Jesus came from God; Jesus knows all things

(John 16:27-30)

Jesus was hungry

(Mark 11:12-13)

Jesus cast out demons

(Mark 1:21-28)

Jesus was tired and fell asleep

(Mark 4:38)

Jesus forgave sins

(Luke 7:44-50)

Jesus felt sadness; Jesus cried

(John 11:33-35)

Jesus healed a man’s hand

(Mark 3:5)

Jesus was thirsty

(John 19:28-29)

Jesus did things that only God could do

Jesus experienced the same emotions and physical needs that we do

We could have added many more verses, but our time was limited. Why don’t you take the chart and add more examples for the deity and humanity of Jesus?
