1 JESUS CHRIST REDEEMED US LESSON 5Opening Prayer:Dear Jesus, no one else could do what you did for me. And it had to be done. Help me to appreciate your redeeming work. I know it cost you your life, but sometimes I live like it really doesn’t matter. Forgive me for that. It does matter. Because you came to earth and became a human being who could live and die in my place, now I know that I never have to die and my life is really worth something. You bought and paid for me…and you don’t buy junk! Be with us as we study your word. Amen.Today we go to the “heart” of our Christian faith and life—the purpose of the life of Jesus Christ—true God and true man—to redeem us. Jesus was the only person God destined to have to die while God created us to live.The important questions in our lesson are:How did Jesus redeem us?With what did Jesus redeem us?From what did Jesus redeem us?What is the Result of Jesus’ Work?What am I free to do?Click to next slide.
2 The Apostles Creed provides the setting for today’s lesson. (See also pages 4 & 5 in Youth’s Catechism)Youth and parent together READ the 2nd Article of the Apostles Creed and the “What does this mean?” up to “He(Jesus) redeemed me”Ask: “What does the word “redeem” mean?”The answer is given on the next slide.(Click to next slide)
3 JESUS CHRIST REDEEMED US to buy back, set freeHave youth record this note.Thought for review.Remember how I shared when I was growing up as a young adult how he would “redeem” a book of S&H Green Stamps for $2 or $3 in cash at a gas station or purchase gas with the book of stamps. This is similar to stores like Cub which give coupons “$1.50 Off 4 Packages of Parkay Margarine”. “Redeemable” only at Cub Stores.Youth records the note or definition.Click to next slide.
4 How Did Jesus Redeem Us? Read the question. “How did Jesus Redeem us?” Share the intent of the question: “How?” “How” conveys the way or method a job is to be done.Remember from Lesson 4 the Bible truth that Jesus is true God and true man in one Person.(review) Ask: How did Jesus, true God, get into our world?Answer: By the Virgin Birth – Incarnation – God taking on human flesh and blood.Illustration: Share the story of the “Prince and the Pauper”.(The son of a king changed places with a very poor boy. The prince wanted to find out more about his poor subjects so he could be a better ruler. After being a pauper for a while, he went back to being the king’s son again.)Ask: Do you suppose a prince ever really did such a thing? Why or Why not?Another illustration from Lesson 4: The man who stayed at Christmas while his family went to church. It was winter. He saw some birds out of his window in the cold and wanted to get them into his shed. He went outside and when he got close to the birds they scattered. He thought to himself: “If only I could be a bird.” As a bird he could lead them into the shed.So Jesus, Emanuel, true God, became a man and came into our world.In a more profound way Jesus the Son of God took on our human flesh.Click to next slide.
5 Philippians 2:5-85Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus: 6Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, 7but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. 8And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death-- even death on a cross!Have youth read Philippians 2:5-8 thoughtfully.Paul states that our “attitude” –the way we think and feel about ourselves is to parallel or be the same as that of Jesus.Look at verse 8. What word describes Jesus’ attitude, even though He was true God, for coming into the world?A: Jesus humbled himself. “Humbling” means “to make oneself low”.Further thought: Remember when Jesus was in the Garden of Gethsemane and the soldiers came to arrest him? When Jesus told them he was the one they wanted, the soldiers were all knocked to the ground. But then Jesus didn’t use His power on them anymore, and he allowed them to take him as prisoner to the High Priest’s house. This one example of how Jesus humbled himself by not using all the heavenly power he has as the God-man.Click to next slide.
6 How Did Jesus Redeem Us?He humbled, that is, emptied Himself of the full use of His divine power that was His and became fully a human being.Ask: How did Jesus Redeem us?Have student record: “He humbled, that is, emptied Himself of the full use of His divine power that was His and became fully a human being.”Illustrate: In an earlier slide of the 2nd Article of the Apostles’ Creed, we have a list of the main things Jesus did to redeem us. Each listed step is an aspect of his life in which he did not use all his heavenly power and glory.Refer to the 2nd Article in the Catechism and list the 6 steps of Jesus’ humiliation.Click to next slide.
7 How Did Jesus Redeem Us? The Steps of Christ’s Humiliation: 1 conceived2 born3 suffered4 crucifiedRecord in youth’s workbook:Step 1: CONCEIVED (in Mary’s womb)Step 2: BORN (poor and in a stable)Step 3: SUFFERED (under Pontius Pilate)Step 4: CRUCIFIED (like a criminal)Step 5: DIEDStep 6: (was) BURIEDFood for thought: Perhaps your youth might offer: “It seems to me that we could just say that Jesus’ humbling himself can be explained very simply by just saying “he became a man.”Why would we as Pastor, Teacher, Parent say this idea isn’t right?Answer: Next Slide5 died6 buried
8 Food for Thought See Comments Share: No, Jesus is more! He is still the God-man right now in his exalted state in heaven. So if his “becoming a man” is our answer, then as “man” returning to heaven would mean he still is humbled. Again an emphatic: “NO! JESUS WAS AND IS THE ‘GOD-MAN’”. His humiliation is not that He “became a man” during his life on earth, but that Jesus, true God and true man, did not chose to use all his heavenly power and glory in order to save us.Click to next slide.
9 With What Did Jesus Redeem Me? Have youth read the Question: “With What Did Jesus Redeem Me?”Click to next slide.
10 Ephesians 1:77In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God's graceParent reads the Bible verse.Share: In the Old Testament, God said that when an animal (such as a sheep or bull) was sacrificed, it was the blood of the animal that paid for the people’s sins. (Leviticus 17:10-14 “‘Any Israelite or any alien living among them who eats any blood—I will set my face against that person who eats blood and will cut him off from his people. 11For the life of a creature is in the blood, and I have given it to you to make atonement for yourselves on the altar; it is the blood that makes atonement for one’s life. 12Therefore I say to the Israelites, “None of you may eat blood, nor may an alien living among you eat blood.”13“‘Any Israelite or any alien living among you who hunts any animal or bird that may be eaten must drain out the blood and cover it with earth, 14because the life of every creature is its blood. That is why I have said to the Israelites, “You must not eat the blood of any creature, because the life of every creature is its blood; anyone who eats it must be cut off.”)The life of the animal was in its blood. When the blood was drained from the animal, its life was gone. That was the price that had to be paid in order for the people to have forgiveness. Christ had to give his lifeblood as the price to ransom or redeem us from slavery to sin, death, and the devil.Click to next slide.
11 Isaiah 53:5-65 But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed. 6 We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all.Parent and Youth read these verses together.This Bible Passage from Isaiah prophecies Jesus’ suffering. Jesus would be “pierced”, “crushed”, “punishment”.Discuss with your son/daughter how much pain Jesus went through. A Roman soldier used a whip that had a sharp piece of metal on the end of each of the cords. Each time that soldier hit Jesus with the whip, it sliced into his back, much like sharp knives would do. A few uears ago Mel Gibson’s film earlier “The Messiah” portrayed this graphically – many objected to seeing all the blood.Ask: What other physical punishments did the soldiers inflict on Jesus?Answer: They pounded nails into Jesus’ hands and feet. And when the cross was put in an upright position, the weight of his body pulled down on those nails.Ask: What was the greatest punishment Jesus experienced on the cross according to Isaiah?Answer: “the Lord laid on him(Jesus) the iniquity(another word for sin meaning “unevenness”) of us all. Remember that sin causes separation – between people and God.Share:When the Heavenly Father saw “our iniquity on Jesus” Jesus calls out: “My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?” Just think about this! The reality of our sin on Jesus separated Jesus from His Father. In another place the Bible speaks as Jesus and the Father being one—there was an intense, personal, intimate relationship between Father and Son. The reality of this separation to our human minds is difficult to grasp. But this was the price Jesus had to pay—suffering God-forsakenness in order to redeem us slavery to sin, death, and the devil.Click to next slide.(Click to next slide)
12 1 Peter 1:18-1918For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, 19but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.VIP PASSAGEHave youth read this Bible passage.Share: Jesus’ blood was able to pay the price because His is the blood of the Son of God—it is precious.Illustration: A $700 Billion Bailout? Not all the money in the world is enough to pay for the sin of one person. Even if all the people in North and South America, Europe, Asia and Africa offer all the money they have, it cannot pay the fine for one person. But Jesus’ blood did what the world’s money cannot do. It was the price of redemption (the ramson price) to free us from slavery to sin, death and the devil.This is our VIP passage for the lesson.Click to next slide.
13 2 Corinthians 5:2121God made him(Jesus) who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him(Jesus) we might become the righteousness of God.Parent and youth read this passage together. Pay attention to the personal pronouns – “him” meaning “Jesus”.Share: In the Old Testament, God gave the people of Israel the scapegoat as a picture of what the Savior would do to redeem us. (Leviticus 16:20-22 When Aaron has finished making atonement for the Most Holy Place, the Tent of Meeting and the altar, he shall bring forward the live goat. 21He is to lay both hands on the head of the live goat and confess over it all the wickedness and rebellion of the Israelites—all their sins—and put them on the goat’s head. He shall send the goat away into the desert in the care of a man appointed for the task. 22The goat will carry on itself all their sins to a solitary place; and the man shall release it in the desert.)A live goat was brought to the high priest as he stood in front of all the people. As the high priest placed his hands on the head of the goat, he confessed all the sins of the people—thus placing the sins of the people on the scapegoat. Then a man would take the goat and lead him out into the desert to die—and all the sins of the people would go away with that goat.The goat hadn’t sinned, but he died because all the sins of the people were on him.Jesus wasn’t guilty of any sin, but he died because the sins of all people were placed on hisinnocent head.Ask: According to 2 Corinthians 5:21 “Who was made to be the substitute for our sin?”Answer: Jesus took our place and became our substituteAsk: What do we receive from Jesus in exchange for our sin?Answer: The holiness and righteousness of Jesus.Click to next slide.
14 With What Did Jesus Redeem Me? The price Jesus paid to redeem me was His suffering and death as an innocent substitute.Ask question: With What Did Jesus Redeem Me?Have youth record the note:“The price Jesus paid to redeem me was suffering and death as an innocent substitute”Click to next slide.
15 Application: Agree or Disagree: When we see a picture of Jesus’ bloody body hanging on the cross, we should feel sorry for him.Parent: Read the statement.Click to next slide.
16 Application ResponseYes, we should feel sorry for him, but we should think of much more than just that.Jesus went through that because of our sin. By shedding his blood, and suffering and dying, Jesus paid the price of redeeming us.The Application Response.Click to next slide.
17 ApplicationA friend of yours who doesn’t know much about Jesus says to you,“I don’t see why you make such a big deal about Jesus’ sacrificing his life for you. Many people throughout history have sacrificed their lives to save other people.”How would you answer your friend?Another application providing food for thought.Click to next slide.
18 Application Response: One thing you would want to point out to your friend is that Jesus did not justsave us from injury or deathbut from an eternity in hell.And you could add that Jesus did not justsave us to live a few years longer in thisworld but to live forever with him inheaven.Click to next slide.

20 Romans 6:16-2316Don't you know that when you offer yourselves to someone to obey him as slaves, you are slaves to the one whom you obey--whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness? 17But thanks be to God that, though you used to be slaves to sin, you wholeheartedly obeyed the form of teaching to which you were entrusted. 18You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness.Have your youth read the following Bible passage and then ask the following question.Question: According to verse 16 we “know” there are 2 paths of obedience in life. What are they?We know obedience to the path of sin and we know obedience to the path of righteousness.Question: What does the path of sin do to us?It makes us a slave to sin, you are under sin’s control.Question: Look at verse 19. What additional problems does the path of sin bring about?It makes slaves to impurity and to ever-increasing wickedness. The path of sinsnowballs into bigger problems. God’s Word tells us we are impure not perfect.Question: Look at verse 21. “What benefit did you reap at that time from the things you are nowashamed of?” How do we feel when we follow the path of sin?We feel ashamed. We feel bad.Explain: When we feel ashamed or feel bad—this is the power of sin at work in us. We also call this “guilt” – the responsibility for sin. There in no “benefit” – it is the result of power of sin in us.Question: How are we going to get out of our dilemma of being slaves to the control of sin? Look at verse 22. What does it say?“But now you have been set free from sin and become slaves to God….”(Click to next slide.)
21 Romans 6:16-23 (Cont)19I put this in human terms because you are weak in your natural selves. Just as you used to offer the parts of your body in slavery to impurity and to ever-increasing wickedness, so now offer them in slavery to righteousness leading to holiness. 20When you were slaves to sin, you were free from the control of righteousness. 21What benefit did you reap at that time from the things you are nowAshamed of? Those things result in death! 22But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves to God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life. 23For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.Question: Look at verse 19. What additional problems does the path of sin bring about?It makes slaves to impurity and to ever-increasing wickedness. The path of sin snowballs into bigger problems. God’s Word tells us we are impure not perfect.Question: Look at verse 21. “What benefit did you reap at that time from the things you are now ashamed of?” How do we feel when we follow the path of sin?We feel ashamed. We feel bad.Explain: When we feel ashamed or feel bad—this is the power of sin at work in us. We also call this “guilt” – the responsibility for sin. There in no “benefit” – it is the result of power of sin in us.Question: How are we going to get out of our dilemma of being slaves to the control of sin? Look at verse 22. What does it say?“But now you have been set free from sin and become slaves to God….”Click to next slide.
22 From What Did Jesus Redeem Me? 1. From sin’s guilt and slaveryQuestion: “From what has Jesus redeemed us.”Have youth to record the answer.Click to next slide.
23 Romans 6:2323For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.Have your youth read this passage and ask:Question: Where does obedience to the path of sin lead to?The wages or payment for walking down the path of sin leads to death—the grave.Question: Remember there is the path of obedience that leads to God. What does the passage call this direction?The “gift of God” is eternal life in Christ Jesus.Click to next slide.
24 2 Timothy 1:1010but it has now been revealed through the appearing of our Savior, Christ Jesus, who has destroyed death and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel.Have your youth read the passage and then ask:Question: What has Jesus our Savior destroyed?Jesus has destroyed death.Question: What has Jesus brought back to us that we lost through sin?Jesus has brought back life – eternal life and immortality – living with no reality of dying.Question: How has Jesus brought “life and immortality” back to us?Jesus does it through the “gospel” – the Good News of God’s love.Click to next slide.
25 John 11:25-2625Jesus said to her, I AM the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; 26and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?"Parent reads the passage where Jesus was speaking to Martha, the sister of Lazarus.Lazarus had died and Martha had hoped Jesus would have arrived earlier and perhaps healed him.Note: This is one of Jesus’ great “I AM” passages. You may remember God speaking to Moses on Mt. Horeb in the “Burning Bush” and revealing us his name: “I AM THAT I AM”. (Ex. 3:14)Question: What great claims does Jesus make for himself?Jesus says He is “the Resurrection and the Life.”Explain that means that Jesus as God has power to resurrect people from the grave and provide life without .Click to next slide.
26 From What Did Jesus Redeem Me? 1. From sin’s guilt and slavery2. From death, so I can now have eternal lifeQuestion: From what has Jesus redeemed us?Have youth record answer.Click to next slide.
27 Genesis 3:1515 And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel."Have your youth read the passage and ask:Question: Who was the Lord speaking to in the Garden when He gave this promise?The devil who had taken on the form of serpent.Question: What did the Lord say He would place between the Devil and the woman?He said there would be “enmity”.Explain—enmity means hatred, warfare, conflict, and hostility. This hatred would show itself between the offspring of the devil and the offspring of the woman.Question: What would a descendant or offspring of the woman do to the devil?“He will crush your head”Question: Whom do we know this promised offspring to be?Jesus the Messiah.Question: What would the devil do to the offspring of the woman or Messiah?“You will strike his heel”, namely, you will inflict a painful blow.Genesis 3:15 is God’s first promise to send the Messiah, and it was given immediately after Adam and Eve fell into sin.Click to next slide.
28 1 John 3:88He who does what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil's work.Have your youth read the passage and ask:Question: Who brought sin into God’s world?Answer: the devilQuestion: Whom did God send into the world to solve the problem of sin?Answer: His SonQuestion: What did God’s Son do to the devil’s work?Answer: destroyed itClick to next slide.
29 Hebrews 2:14-1514Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might destroy him who holds the power of death--that is, the devil-- 15and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death.Have your youth read the passage and ask:Question: What 2 things did Jesus accomplish in confrontingthe devil?1) Jesus destroyed the power of the devil’s hold over people and2) Jesus set us free to live because we were slaves held by the fear of deathClick to next slide.
30 From What Did Jesus Redeem Me? 1. From sin’s guilt and slavery2. From death, so I can now have eternal lifeAsk: From what did Jesus redeem me?Have youth record the note.Click to next slide.3. From the devil’s power, so I am no longer his slave
31 From What Did Jesus Redeem Me? THREE ENEMIES OF MY SOULDEVILAsk youth to “summarize” in his/her own words that Jesus has confronted, defeated, and redeemed us from the three (3) enemies of our souls—the devil who uses the tools of sin and death – to hold us in his power as slaves.Click to next slide.DEATHSINJESUS DESTROYED THEIR POWER!
32 The Result of Jesus’ Work of Redeeming Me Together with your youth read the statement on this slide“The Result of Jesus’ Work of Redeeming Me.”Further ask: “What is the result of Jesus’ Work?”Click to next slide.
33 Romans 3:23-2423for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.Parent and youth read the passage and ask:Question: Who have sinned and fallen short of the perfect life God expects?All people have sinned and are separated from God.Question: Whom has God justified by His undeserved love?All are justified freely by God’s grace.Illustration: If a judge finds me guilty of speeding and then fines me more than I can possibly pay, I would be in serious trouble, wouldn’t I? But if my brother speaks up and says: Judge, I will pay the fine for my brother if you will let me.” I would listen very closely to the judge’s answer, wouldn’t I? And when the judge says, “Okay, the court will accept that payment,” I would be greatly relieved because I know that I will be released.The judge isn’t unfair if he releases me because the fine has been paid. Nor is God an unfair judge when he no longer counts people’s sins against them, because Jesus paid the fine for them all.Click to next slide.Share the benefit of Jesus’ perfect life and innocent is offered to ALL PEOPLE!!
34 God has justified me (declared me “Not Guilty”) and all people. The Result of Jesus’ Work of Redeeming MeGod has justified me (declared me “Not Guilty”) and all people.Parent and Youth together read this important Bible truth.Have youth record this truth in his/her workbook.Click to next slide.This is a gift of God’s grace (undeserved love and mercy).
35 ApplicationAgree or disagree: Right now, in God’s eyes, it is just as though you and I had never broken any of God’s laws even once in our entire lives.Yes, that is exactly what God’s declaration of forgiveness for all people means. God himself says, as we saw in a number of Bible passages, that he no longer remembers our sins and he no longer counts any of them against us.Click to next slide.
36 Further ApplicationTell several things that are wrong with this statement: Jesus’ death made it possible for my sins to be forgiven, but they aren’t actually forgiven until I believe.God says that when Jesus completed his work of salvation, he actually took away the sins of the world, not that he just made it possible for the sins of the world to be taken away some day 2000 years later when I believe.Another problem with this statement is that it makes my forgiveness dependent on my faith. So if I look at myself and see that I have a weak faith, the devil can make me doubt whether I believe enough to be forgiven. In this way the devil can make me doubt whether I believe enough to be forgiven. In this way the devil can make me think that my salvation really depends on what I do. Or the devil can make me wonder whether I really am forgiven instead of being absolutely sure of this because I was forgiven long ago before I was even born.Click to next slide.

38 Luke 19:1-10Zacchaeus the Tax Collector 1Jesus entered Jericho and was passing through. 2A man was there by the name of Zacchaeus; he was a chief tax collector and was wealthy. 3He wanted to see who Jesus was, but being a short man he could not, because of the crowd. 4So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore-fig tree to see him, since Jesus was coming that way.Have youth read this quietly the account of Zacchaeus.Click to next slide.
39 Luke 19:1-10 (Cont)5When Jesus reached the spot, he looked up and said to him, "Zacchaeus, come down immediately. I must stay at your house today." 6So he came down at once and welcomed him gladly. 7All the people saw this and began to mutter, "He has gone to be the guest of a 'sinner.' " 8But Zacchaeus stood up and said to the Lord, "Look, Lord! Here and now I give half of my possessions to the poor, and if I have cheated anybody out of anything, I will pay back four times the amount." 9Jesus said to him, "Today SALVATION has come to this house, because this man, too, is a son of Abraham. 10For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost."Jesus said (vs 5) “I must stay at your house today.”Question: (Vs. 9) What did Jesus bring to Zacchaeus’ house?Salvation – deliverance from his sins and guilt.Question; What were Zacchaeus’ actions to show that he wasFree from the power and hold of sin in his life?He gave half of his possessions to the poor and promisedto repay any individual he cheated four-fold.Click to next slide.
40 1 Corinthians 6:19-2019Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.Have youth read this passage and ask:Question: Since God through His Holy Spirit lives in our human bodywhat are we to do with our body?We are to “honor God”.Question: What are some things we will do to honor God?Proper physical, spiritual, and emotional care of our body.Click to next slide.
41 2 Corinthians 5:14-1514For Christ's love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. 15And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again.Parent and youth read this passage and ask:Question: Knowing that Jesus Christ in love has redeemed us, how are we to live?We do not live for ourselves but for Jesus who died andwas raised to life again.Click to next slide.
42 1 Peter 2:2424He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed.(Have the youth read this passage and ask:Question: Remember our 2 paths earlier in the presentation—the path of obedience to sin and the path of obedience to God. We know Jesus bore our sins on the tree of the cross. What must we in freedom do?A. We are to die to sins and live for righteousness (repentance)
43 ApplicationEvaluate this statement: Because Jesus took away the guilt of our sins, we shouldn’t be bothered by the fact we fall into sin every day.Have youth read the statement.Pause and await response.Click to next slide.
44 ResponseOur sins should not bother us in the sense that we might doubt that they are forgiven.Because of Christ’s saving work, God forgives all our sins. There isn’t any condemnation (see Romans 8:1). But Jesus’ great love for us doesn’t lead us to be careless or nonchalant about our sins.Instead, we hate sin and want to show our thanks byavoiding sin. (Romans 6:1,2)Share this response.Click to next slide.
45 Titus 2:1414who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.Have youth read this passage and ask:Question: Having been redeemed by the blood of Jesus, what is a child of God eager to do?We are eager to do good—doing the things God wants us to do.Click to next slide.
