Being a christian means

Being a Christian means…

  • Believing that Christ is the Incarnate (Living) Word of God

  • This means:

  • Jesus is both human and divine (both man AND God)

  • Human - able to suffer and die

  • Divine - able to forgive our sins

  • We see God in Jesus – we love God in loving Jesus

  • REFLECT: What are ways that people show their faith in Jesus? (people you know, celebrities, religious leaders)

What did jesus teach about the afterlife

What did Jesus teach about the afterlife?

  • Recall the parables. Talk in your small group about what you think Jesus taught about life after death.

  • The term “kingdom of God” or “kingdom of heaven” is defined almost entirely by parable (examples?)

  • Kingdom of God – a time when all covenants (agreements) made with God are fulfilled

  • Remember covenants made in the Old and New Testaments – fill in some examples in your scripture reference sheet


The kingdom of god

The Kingdom of God

  • Jesus relates the Kingdom to eternal life (Beatitudes, the Lord’s Prayer) – The Kingdom is when God’s will is done on earth, as it is in Heaven

  • It will be a “kingdom of love, peace and justice” (CCC #2046)

  • The role of humanity is to create the kingdom right now on earth, before Christ comes again (time of Judgment)

  • If God is love, the Kingdom of God could be called “Love’s Rule” or “Love’s Reign”


The kingdom continued

The Kingdom, continued…

  • According to Pope Benedict XVI, the Kingdom of God has three parts:

  • Jesus, who is the Kingdom in human form

  • people, who have the Kingdom within them

  • the Church, whose mission is to preach about the Kingdom
