Middle School-October’s Theme: Who is God?

What was God’s plan to save a dying world? (Eph. 1:3-5, Is 46:10)

Jesus encounters Satan in the desert (Luke 4:1-11)

Key Questions:

1. Why would the Holy Spirit lead Jesus out into the desert to be tempted? (v.1)

2. If Jesus was perfect, was he even able to give into temptation?

3. What is the point of this passage? Is it about how we fight temptation?  What does it teach us about Jesus?
