The Better One
This five-week series will introduce your group to the many ways Christ shows up in the Old Testament. Jesus is the climax of the story of Scripture. He is the better Adam, Abraham, Jonah, and Hosea. Through this series, kids will learn that the whole story of Christianity is about Jesus, that (unlike Adam) Jesus resisted temptation and can give us strength to do the same, that Hosea shows us Jesus’s love for the sinful, that Isaac prefigures the sacrifice Jesus would later make for us on the cross, and that (unlike Jonah) Jesus lovingly seeks to draw enemies to him. Compare to Better (adult) and Third Act (youth).
