Lesson 1: God sends His Son, Jesus

Readings: Luke 2: 1-7

Where were you born? Perhaps it was at home or in a hospital. Most of us are born with doctors and nurses nearby to make sure everything goes well. It wasn’t like that when Jesus was born!

Lesson 2: God sends Jesus, the Saviour

Readings: Luke 2: 8-15

When Jesus was born, an angel first told some shepherds about His birth.

Lesson 3: The shepherds find Jesus

Readings: Luke 2: 16-20

When the shepherds heard the good news about Jesus, they couldn’t wait to go and see the Baby for themselves. So, they hurried off and found the Baby – just as the angel had told them!

Lesson 4: John baptizes Jesus

Readings: Mark 1: 1-9

About 30 years after the birth of Jesus, John the Baptist started to get people ready for the coming of Christ, the Lord. John had lived in the desert eating locusts and wild honey. He knew that the One who was to come was far better than he.
