New Testament Bible Lessons

The Setting of the Ministry of Christ

New Testament Bible Lessons

This course is a series of 42 Bible lessons on the New Testament designed for older (middle school) children. Each lesson is about 20 minutes in length and is taught by a 6th grade Bible teacher from Calvin Christian school in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada. The video portion of each lesson is accompanied by a Lesson Guide containing quizzes and test questions. The Lesson Guide is available in PDF format and can be downloaded or printed out for the student to complete in class. This course is very well suited for both home schools and private Christian schools worldwide, though it is primarily designed for use in a group setting. Parents and teachers can provide additional guidance to supplement these lessons and Bible knowledge tests, if desired. This New Testament course covers the history of the Lord Jesus as delivered to us in the four Gospels and continues through the life of the Apostle Paul from the Book of Acts. The first lesson starts with the days leading up to Christ’s humble birth in Bethlehem. From there, the student will move through the life of Christ, surveying his blessed ministry, his suffering, his death, and his resurrection. Christ’s ascension, bringing his humble life on earth to a close, and the blessed outpouring of the Holy Spirit are taught next. The final lessons examine the calling and ministry of the greatest evangelist that ever lived, Paul the Apostle. A study of Paul’s missionary journeys brings the series to a close. We hope these lessons are a blessing to you.

The Setting of the Ministry of Christ

Throughout the Old Testament God promised that in the fullness of time He would send His Son, Jesus Christ, as the Saviour to redeem His people. Between the Old Testament and the New Testament there was a period of more than four hundred years about which the Bible is silent, but also during this time the Lord directed events to prepare for the coming of Christ and the spread of His kingdom.
