Bible Teachings: The Shema, Beatitudes, and Jesus's Commandment to love our neighbors as ourselves
Bible Teachings PowerXpress Rotation Description
Scriptures: Deuteronomy 6:4-5, Matthew 5:1-12, Matthew 22:37-39
The Deuteronomy passage, known as the Shema, calls us to "love God with all our heart, soul, and might." In Matthew 22:37-39, Jesus repeated the Shema, as being the most important commandment, and then added second commandment, "to love your neighbor as yourself."
The Beatitudes, found in Matthew 5, are not commandments bur rather a description of what is good, or "blessed," in God's eyes. Children will: 1) learn that, when we read the Bible, we can discover what God expects us to do and be; 2) explore the Shema (Deuteronomy 6:4-5) and its importance; 3) examine the Beatitudes and their meaning; 4) study Christ's commandment to "love our neighbor as ourselves"; 5)be challenged to think about ways Jesus' teachings were very radical and new.
