The Life of Jesus Christ is a broad overview of the life of Christ, presented as it unfolded geographically and chronologically. LC1-2 are developed especially for a very easy reading level, with fill-in-the-blank questions. It might be appropriate for early teens in home schools, or adults with English as a second language or junior high level education. LC3 covers the same material, but at a normal reading level, with more challenging “look up and consider” questions based on the biblical texts.
The basic reading level version of The Life of Jesus Christ consists of two courses. LC1 includes Jesus’ birth, baptism, and ministry in Galilee until mid-way in His third year of public ministry. LC2 begins there, follows His ministry in Judea and Perea, and concludes with His crucifixion, burial, and resurrection.
LC1 and LC2 consist of 48-page booklets, of six and seven lessons respectively. The lessons involve reading passages selected from the four Gospels in chronological sequence. The questions are designed to review the facts of Jesus’ life, and to answer the important question, “Who is Jesus?” Most questions are answered by filling in simple facts or missing words in the Bible quotations. Some are aimed at application to the heart and personal beliefs.
Course LC3 consists of all 13 lessons in one 72-page booklet, with questions aimed at more reflection, integration, and consideration.
Materials: each part (1-3), one booklet.
Lesson 1: The Birth and Childhood of Jesus
Lesson 2-3: Jesus Ministers in Galilee
Lesson 4-6: Jesus Shows His Deity
Lesson 7-9: Jesus Proclaims His Deity
Lesson 10-13: The Last Week, Resurrection, Ascension

“This has given me a greater appreciation for the rich teachings in the Gospels. I sometimes get stuck in the epistles. But the Gospels are the foundation of my salvation. I’ve realized that the life of Jesus is not just past facts, but He is still healing the spiritually blind and lame. He is still seeking and saving the lost. He lives, and so do His teachings. This study made me think about
