This seven-session study surveys the ministry period of Jesus' life--the time from his baptism to when the journey to the cross began. It focuses on the things Jesus taught and did during that active ministry period, providing insights for us as his followers in the 21st century. Each lesson begins with a story or illustration relation to the topic but drawn from life today, followed by a discussion of the related Scripture, life applications, and discussion questions. Sessions titles are: "Jesus Lived Up to His Baptism," "Jesus Proclaimed the Good News of God," "Jesus Healed the Sick," "Jesus Offered Forgiveness to Sinners," "Jesus Taught with Authority," "Jesus Associated with Bad Company," and "Jesus Withdrew to Pray."
