Person of Jesus: Interactive Bible Study (Unit 4: Faith-PDF)
If someone perfectly balanced compassion and honesty while fully depending on God’s guidance to love others, there would still remain one problem: how do we get the energy to love? Faith in God provides the energy for love. Closely associated with Jesus’ dependence on his heavenly Father is Jesus’ faith in him. At the feeding of the 5,000, Jesus tells his disciples that he provides the energy for life and love.
The disciples fail to understand Jesus, however. While out on the Sea of Galilee, the disciples turn inward when faced with a simple problem instead of turning toward Jesus.
In this unit, we pull together the threads of love with an in-depth look at Jesus’ encounter with the Samaritan woman in John 4. Jesus enjoys this woman’s character, yet he is honest with her about her worldly vices. Jesus’ conversation with her is a perfect blend of compassion and honesty.
The closing lessons of this unit reveal the goal of love: oneness. Jesus’ relationship with his Father is a perfect model of oneness, which leads to his complete joy. Jesus is so truly joyous that the Pharisees rebuke him for rejoicing at parties too much. Real joy for everyone comes from returning to the sanity of the Father’s love, through faith and repentance.

“I loved the opportunity to practice teaching the model presented. Curriculum is great! The teacher is gifted. Great need in the church to teach believers how to simple lead a study of Jesus.
