In preparation for Easter, join me in this 31 day scripture study about the life of Jesus as we reflect on his purpose and mission.
THE LIFE AND MINISTRY OF JESUS
While Christmas gets a HUGE lead-up in our house every year, I’ve been more intentional the last few years to try and do the same for Easter. Our kids know the nativity and the resurrection story, but the in-between gets a little neglected.
So this year I’ve created a scripture study that covers Jesus’ life, focusing on his ministry. While I do my own study, I’ll be more aware of the conversations we should be having leading up to Easter. I’d even like to add more decorations for the holiday this year that focus on “the reason for the season” rather than overwhelming the house with cutesy bunnies.
Before we dive into our scriptures for the month, let’s get a little organized. Here is the basic timeline of the events taken from Rose Book of Bible Charts, Maps and Time Lines:
6-4 BC Jesus born in Bethlehem
7 AD Jesus amazes the teachers at the temple as a boy
26 AD Jesus is baptized, ministry begins
30 AD Jesus’ death & resurrection
THE FOUR GOSPELS
All 4 gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John) cover the life of Jesus, but my study focuses on the book of Matthew. The reason for the four versions are the different audiences they were written for. (You can learn more in my New Testament timeline). Now centuries later, we can read all of them side by side (which I encourage you to do!)
For simplicity’s sake, I’ve taken the major events from Matthew and broken them down into a 31 day scripture study.
The directions are simple:
- Print the scripture page and make copies of the journaling pages.
- Write a scripture each day in the space on the left and reflect on it in the space on the right.
