The Shepherd (Luke 2) | Full Lesson

The Shepherd (Luke 2)

 

             
 

The Shepherd, is probably one of the most well known support characters to the Christmas story, and yet we know so little about him or his companions. Yet these men, probably considered rather ‘unclean’ and not the picture of a devote jew, are the people who witness heavens own birth announcement. The lesson plays on the idea that the angels filled the air singing, and that tune should have stayed with them for the rest of their lives.

 
ATTRIBUTE = WITNESS

Elizabeth & Mary (Luke 1) | Full Lesson

Elizabeth & Mary (Luke 1)

 

             
 
Elizabeth and Mary are the two women who start off the gospel story, their pregnancies which overlap by at least 3 months hold the promise of the new messiah coming into the world. This lesson combines the stories, especially for those teachers who have limited time to spend on the Christmas teaching. The lesson is quite reflective.

 
ATTRIBUTE = MOTHERHOOD

Anna (Luke 2) | Full Lesson

Anna (Luke 2)

 

            
 

Anna is part of the ‘friends of Jesus’ series, she recognises Jesus when he is only a six week old babe and professes him to be a redeemer. Anna’s story is but a few sentences in Luke’s gospel but her heritage as part of the lost people of Israel, her many years of waiting, and her faith in the prophecy she had received, make her a powerful witness to the young. We explore the use of Prayer labyrinths in this lesson.

 
ATTRIBUTE = PROPHECY
