The Power to Give Life, John 4:1-38

Co-teacher Dave Richards posted his slides for the lesson, “The Power to Give Life”, which is based on John 4:1-15, 25-26. Dave provides extra material to give greater insight into John's gospel account.

Monty Lee, who teaches at First Baptist Church of Westcliffe, Colorado also made his slides available. They come in two flavors--Keynote for Apple users and PowerPoint for Microsoft users. Monty uses an interesting video to portray Jesus teaching the Samaritan woman.

Salvation Offered, John 3:1-36

I've posted my PowerPoint slides for Sunday's lesson from John 3, "Salvation Offered", where Jesus meets with Nicodemus, who is troubled about the idea of being born again.

In my lesson, I plan to play a video of the scene of Nicodemus meeting Jesus in an olive garden. I put together this clip from the movie, "Jesus of Nazareth" by Franco Zeffirelli. I plan to ask my class to contrast the video with the account in John 3 and to pay close attention to how Nicodemus expresses his troubled heart. What can we learn from his questions?

As a treat, Monty Lee, who teaches a senior adult class at First Baptist Church of Westcliffe, Colorado sent me his slides for the lesson "Salvation Offered". He has two versions, one for Apple Keynote users, and another for PowerPoint users. Please welcome Monty to the blog site, and thank him for his willingness to minister in this way.

Jesus’ Authority Acknowledged, John 2:1-25

I have posted my PowerPoint slides for Sunday's lesson, "Authority Acknowledged," which is focused on John 2:1-16. I included a slide on verses 17-22 as well since they also deal with the authority of Jesus. You can watch the preview below but you also need to play the slides in show mode in order to understand their presentation. I also placed notes on many of the slides to help you better present them. May God bless your preparation this week!

Here are my PowerPoint slides for Sunday's lesson from John 1:19-51, "Jesus Identified." The lesson focuses on three passages, John 1:29-36, 40-42a, 45-51. I added three discussion slides with ideas to help get the class sharing with each other to get to know each other better.
