The Sunday School Lesson God the Son by David McGee

God the Son (37:23)
Referenced Scriptures: Isaiah 53:3-6; Matthew 16:13-17; John 14:1-3; Philippians 2:5-11; Colossians 1:15-20; Hebrews 4:14-16; Hebrews 9:27-28
How would you answer someone who asked you to describe who Jesus is? In a secular society, the Christian response that Jesus is God has become increasingly unpopular.
This lesson explores what Scripture teaches regarding Jesus' identity and ministry. We will explore His mission as Savior of the world. To call Him Savior means we needed saving. Thankfully, He alone can bring salvation.
From His mission, we will move on to affirm our Blessed Hope: Jesus is coming again. We must prepare ourselves for that moment - even as we help others prepare for His coming as well.
The scriptures below are from the WEB Bible.
3) He was despised, and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and as one from whom men hide their face he was despised; and we didn‘t respect him.
4) Surely he has borne our infirmities, and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed him stricken, struck of God, and afflicted.
5) But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was on him; and with his stripes we are healed.
6) All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone to his own way; and Yahweh has laid on him the iniquity of us all.
13) Now when Jesus came into the parts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, "Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am ?"
14) They said, "Some say John the Baptizer, some, Elijah, and others, Jeremiah, or one of the prophets."
15) He said to them, "But who do you say that I am?"
16) Simon Peter answered, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God."
17) Jesus answered him, "Blessed are you, Simon Bar-jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven.
1) "Don‘t let your heart be troubled. Believe in God. Believe also in me.
2) In my Father‘s house are many mansions. If it weren‘t so, I would have told you. I am going to prepare a place for you.
3) If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and will receive you to myself; that where I am, you may be there also.
5) Have this in your mind, which was also in Christ Jesus,
6) who, existing in the form of God, didn‘t consider it robbery to be equal with God,
7) but emptied himself, taking the form of a servant, being made in the likeness of men.
8) Being found in human form, he humbled himself, becoming obedient to death, yes, the death of the cross.
9) Therefore God also highly exalted him, and gave to him the name which is above every name;
10) that at the name of Jesus every knee would bow, of those in heaven, those on earth, and those under the earth,
11) and that every tongue would confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God, the Father.
15) who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation.
16) For in him were all things created, in the heavens and on the earth, things visible and things invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers; all things have been created through him, and to him.
17) He is before all things, and in him all things are held together.
18) He is the head of the body, the assembly, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.
19) For all the fullness was pleased to dwell in him;
20) and through him to reconcile all things to himself, having made peace through the blood of his cross. Through him, I say, whether things on the earth, or things in the heavens.
14) Having then a great high priest, who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold tightly to our confession.
15) For we don‘t have a high priest who can‘t be touched with the feeling of our infirmities, but one who has been in all points tempted like we are, yet without sin.
16) Let us therefore draw near with boldness to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy, and may find grace for timely help.
27) Inasmuch as it is appointed for men to die once, and after this, judgment,
28) so Christ also, having been once offered to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, without sin, to those who are eagerly waiting for him for salvation.
