Basic Christian Theology For Teens Page 9


The Importance of Jesus' Resurrection:
The Importance of Jesus' ressurection

The first half of the lesson is devoted to Jesus’ claim to be God. This is a unique claim of Christianity and must be a firm, unwavering aspect of a persons faith.
The second half of the lesson is devoted to firming up these truths that the resurrection affirms:
1. The resurrection confirms the truth and value of what Jesus taught and did.
2. Christ’s resurrection is the guarantee of our own resurrection.
3. Jesus is alive today, still in charge, and preparing a place for us.
4. He will come back to get us.

This is an excellent Easter lesson. It is a one page handout with leaders guide.

I also do "Peep Golf" as an activity before the lesson.

339502: The Case for Easter: A Journalist Investigates the   Evidence for the Resurrection The Case for Easter: A Journalist Investigates the Evidence for the Resurrection
By Lee Strobel / Zondervan

Priced to give away, this "investigation" into Christ's death answers three crucial questions seekers ask: Was Jesus' death a sham? Was his tomb really empty? Was he seen alive after his death on the cross? Strobel's award-winning skills as a legal journalist will persuade even the most hard-boiled skeptics to reconsider Jesus' death and resurrection. 96 pages, softcover from Zondervan.
834235: Know What You Believe  
Know What You Believe
Paul Little presents Christian beliefs in a very approachable manner.

I used a lot of information from this book:

Know What You Believe, by Paul E. Little, Chariot Victor Publishing.

This book and it’s companion book, Know Why You Believe, are awesome guides for succinctly defining the Christian faith.

These books should be in every Christian leaders reference library.

Easter is more of a high point in the Christian calendar than Christmas. Easter has not be commercialized or secularly hijacked like Christmas. Celebrated Easter with correct teaching about Jesus, His death, and resurrection.

834242: Know Who You Believe  
Know Who You Believe
Written for all Christians who must know Who it is they serve.
67397EB: Jesus: Dead or Alive?: Evidence for the Resurrection - eBook Jesus: Dead or Alive?: Evidence for the Resurrection - eBook
By Josh McDowell & Sean McDowell / Baker Books

Skeptical teens often question the reality of Christ's resurrection. This compelling examination provides them with the solid answers they seek! Focusing on the claims of the Gospel writers, the McDowells invite 11- to 15-year-olds to take a hard look at the evidence and discover for themselves the proof that Christ died and rose again.
45224X: Apples to Apples Junior  

This version of Apples To Apples has cards optimized for middle-school aged children.

What Happens When You Die?
What happen when you die? Bible Study lesson for teens.

The kids are ready for more than the simple answer -heaven. While this is true the Bible indicates there are several stages or events that take place before we arrive in the final heaven. Junior higher's and high school kids are eager for more details. This is still basic but it does give them some Biblically based theology to add to their beliefs about life after death.

This is a one page lesson plan with leaders guide. Pepper the blank reverse side of the lesson with photo's from class or your most recent outing. We play the Apples-to-Apples games as a pre-lesson activity. It reinforces the theme of judging mentioned in the lesson several times.

A good follow-up lesson is A New Heaven and Earth.

I used this book by Erwin Lutzer for some information in this lesson.
To order a copy from Christian click on the book.
It is totally awesome (spellbinding actually). The book on CD is good too.

This topic is seldom talked about or taught even though it is crucial to the Christian faith.

412959: One Minute After You Die One Minute After You Die
By Erwin W. Lutzer / Moody Publishers

In this updated edition of his classic bestseller, Lutzer urges us to study and heed what the Bible says about life beyond the grave. His answers to crucial questions---What will heaven be like? What about purgatory? Is hell real?---are an encouragement to believers and a word of caution for the undecided. 208 pages, softcover from Moody.

Know Your Enemy: teen bible lesson worksheet

The Barna Research Group, in its 1999 survey entitle “Third Millennium Teens” found that 65% of Christian young people do not believe that Satan is a real entity. The goal of this lesson is to give young Christians some Biblical background about our enemy. We can learn a lot about Satan from the Bible. Once the enemy is exposed he looses a lot of his ability to trick us into sin.

To illustrate unseen things I used a portable stereo (boom box) that had a remote control. They believed the remote control was working the stereo even though they could not see the signals being sent. I used film clips from The Water Boy because I just crack up when Kathy Bates says, "DA DEBIL". There are also scenes showing the team reviewing training video showing how they study their opponents moves so they can win. This illustrates why we should be aware of the devils schemes.

Follow up with Know Your Enemy Part Two below.


Know Your Enemy Part Two:sunday school lesson plan
In this lesson we continue our discovery of our enemy by checking out his weapons, objectives,and tactics. The goal is to raise the awareness of young Christians to the operation of the enemy in their daily lives.

This is a two page lesson plan with a pre-lesson game that demonstrates deception.

Good follow-up lessons are Conviction or Condemnation, Discernment, The Battle For Your Brain.

Reckless Faith: When the Church Loses It's Will to Discern

Reckless Faith: When the Church Loses It's Will to Discern

In a society that is hostile to anyone who declares absolutes, that tolerates faith in any form, that values emotion over reason and trendiness over conviction, it's no surprise that many American churches have lost their ability to discern between biblical truth and doctrinal error. John MacArthur attempts to set them straight.


More lessons and resources about Discernment.

These are the most popular teen Bible study lessons on the website. Heaven, life after death, and the resurrection of Jesus are of major topics in youth ministry. Basic Christian Theology for teens is essential to the formation of their Christian faith. It may seem morbid but kids really want to know what the Bible teaches about what happens after you die.
