开始祷告(5-10分钟)


团队建造(10分钟)

(课前用纸剪出一些心形,这些纸心只用于书写。与主题相关的视觉活动会让学生受益。将纸心分发给学生。每个学生应拿到两张纸心。这个活动中用一个,在本课稍后部分用另一个。)


我给了你两张纸心。我们现在用一个,过一会,再用一个。


在你的一颗心上,我要你们在60秒内写下尽可能多的与爱有关的词。也许是结婚,亲吻,约会,浪漫等,无论你想到的。只是写下来。


(给学生60秒时间来完成本练习,然后让他们分享一些他们写的东西。让学生讲上8到10个,然后就可以进入下个部分。)


课堂起头(5分钟)

今天我们要谈谈神的爱,特别是耶稣在约翰福音中所表现出来的爱。但是在这之前,我想了解更多你们对爱的看法。


一般讨论:

•除了主,你认识的最有爱心的人有哪些?(让学生自由分享。)

•这些人是如何表达他们的爱心的?(让学生确定那些人是如何表达爱心的。)

•这些品质与我们之前所说的那些词有什么相似或不同?(允许学生进行比较。)


爱是过度使用的单词之一,以至于我们都以为知道其含义。今天,我们要看耶稣向我们展示真爱的一段经文。翻到约翰福音。


深入学习(30分钟)


读 约翰福音13:1-17

问题讨论:

1.耶稣在这段经文中做了什么?(他在洗门徒的脚。)

2.这是一项有趣的工作吗?为什么不?(他们的脚很脏,这是仆人的工作,等等。)

3.为什么彼得不愿让耶稣洗脚?(因为耶稣是他们的老师,这不是一般老师做的事。耶稣颠覆了等级制度。洗脚是仆人的工作,不是王的工作。)

4.通过这个经历,耶稣告诉他们什么?(现在,他为他们做了,他们应该也为其他人做。)

5.这段话的整体基调是什么?(谦卑,仆人的心肠,温暖,真诚。)


我们跳过一段内容,稍后再返回。


读 约翰福音14:1-31

问题讨论:

1.耶稣在这里做什么?(他安慰他的跟随者,告诉他们圣灵会来,给他们希望,向他们做出其他承诺。)

2.耶稣应许了什么?(他会为他们准备一个地方,他们要做大事,圣灵,他会为他们回来,等等。)

3.这段话的整体基调是什么?(有盼望,安慰,牧养。)


耶稣谦卑地洗门徒的脚。他安慰他们。他向他们承诺希望,未来和圣灵的能力。但是,在他谦卑的服事和充满希望的应许之间,我们读到了一些其他的事情。


读 约翰福音13:18-30和13:31-38

问题讨论:

1.我们在这里读到哪两个事件?(耶稣预言了犹大的背叛和彼得的否认主。)

2.耶稣如何揭示他的背叛?(门徒问是谁,耶稣说是他给面包的那个人,然后他把面包交给了犹大。)

3.耶稣如何揭示彼得的否认主?(彼得称他愿意为耶稣死,而耶稣说他在第二天清晨之前会否认自己与主的关系。)

4.这两个段落的整体基调是什么?(压抑,失望,悲伤,等)


应用(25分钟)

在今天的阅读中,我们看到了:耶稣准确地预言了犹大的背叛和彼得的否认。令人震惊的是,在这之前,他洗了门徒的脚,之后,他安慰了他们并应许了他们圣灵要来。


一般讨论:

•如果与你吃饭的某个你认识的人,他会出卖你(会导致你死),会否认你,那么你在饭前饭后会如何对待他们呢?(无视他们,粗暴地对待他们,疏远他们,不理他们等等)

•耶稣在这方面有什么根本不同?(他服事他们,对他们有恩慈,安慰他们,应许他们将到的帮助。)

•他很难做到这些吗?为什么或者为什么不?(允许学生自由分享。)

•你认为自己有能力做到这些吗?为什么或者为什么不?(允许学生自由分享。)


耶稣在约翰福音13和14中教导我们如何去爱。是这种爱,他呼召我们要活出来。写此福音书的同一位约翰,在他写的另一封书信中提出了这个主题。让我们读一读那封书信。


读 约翰一书4:7-21

问题讨论:

1.约翰在这段经文中给出了什么命令?(“彼此相爱”)

2.如果我们不遵守该命令,就着这段话,我们就不能宣称什么?(我们属于神,跟随神,等等)

3.我们怎么知道神爱我们?(耶稣来过了,生活在我们中间,又为我们而死,等等。)

4.如果我们彼此相爱,就着第12节,会发生什么?(神就住在我们里面,祂的爱也在我们里面得了成全。)

5.就着第19节,为什么我们要爱?(因为耶稣先爱了我们。)


耶稣向我们展示了如何去爱。如果我们彼此不相爱,我们就不能说我们是爱神的。我们最好想一下耶稣是如何去爱的,然后以相同的爱去爱别人。


就像我们前面的游戏一样,现在我要你们在另一个纸心上,写下描述耶稣爱的方式的文字。你们有一分钟时间。


一般讨论:

•你写了什么?(允许学生自由分享。)

•这颗纸心上的文字与第一颗纸心有不同吗?(可能有所不同,因此允许学生自由分享。)

•当我们想到爱时,我们应该想到耶稣爱的方式。那是爱。你们可以那样去爱吗?(很困难,但是如果我们要说我们爱神,那我们就必须那样去爱。)

•可能有些人让我们不想这样去爱。我们爱的对象,从圣经角度来说,有例外吗? (没有。)


我们需要像耶稣一样去爱。这是不容易的。因此,让我们祈求这样做的能力和智慧。


结束祷告(3分钟)

为学生和你自己祷告。祈求你们都能像耶稣一样去爱。

Topics

Scripture Memorization

John 13:14

OPENING PRAYER (5 to 10 minutes)

GROUP BUILDING (10 minutes)

(Before class cut out some paper hearts, which will only function as paper to write on. Students will benefit from the visual connection to the theme. Pass out the paper hearts to the students. Each student should receive two paper hearts. You’ll use one here and the other later in the lesson.)


I’ve just given you two paper hearts. We’ll use one now and one later.


On one of your hearts, I’d like for you to take 60 seconds and write as many words as you can think of that relate to love. Maybe it’s marriage, kissing, dates, romance, etc. Whatever you want. Just write them down.


(Give students 60 seconds to complete this exercise, then ask them to share a few of the things they wrote. Once students have named 8-10 words, move on to the Getting Started section.)

GETTING STARTED (5 minutes)

We’re going to talk about God’s love today, particularly the love Jesus shows in the Gospel of John. But before we do that, I want to learn a little bit more from you about what you think about love.


General Discussion:

• Not counting the Lord, who are some of the most loving people you know? (Allow students to share.)

• How do those people show that they care? (Allow students to identify how those people show love.)

• Would you say those qualities are similar or different from the words we said earlier? (Allow students to compare and contrast.)


Love is one of those overused words that we all think we know the meaning of. But today, we’re going to look at a passage where Jesus shows us what love really looks like. Turn to the Gospel of John.

DIGGING IN (30 minutes)

Read John 13:1-17


Discussion Questions:

1. What does Jesus do in this passage? (He washes the disciples’ feet.)

2. Do you think that was a fun job? Why not? (Their feet were nasty, this was the job of a servant, etc.)

3. Why was Peter reluctant to let Jesus wash his feet? (Because Jesus was their teacher and this was not the standard way of doing things. Jesus subverted the hierarchy. Washing feet was a servant’s job not the King’s.)

4. What does Jesus tell them about this experience? (Now that He’s done it for them, they should do it for others.)

5. What is the overall tone of this passage? (Humble, servant-hearted, warm, genuine.)


We’re going to skip a passage and come back to it later.



Read John 14:1-31


Discussion Questions:

1. What does Jesus do here? (He comforts His followers and promises them the Holy Spirit, gives them hope, and makes other promises to them.)

2. What does Jesus promise? (He’ll prepare a place for them, they will do great things, the Holy Spirit, He’ll come back for them, etc.)

3. What is the overall tone of this passage? (Hopeful, comforting, pastoral.)


Jesus washes His disciples feet in humility. He comforts them. He promises them hope and a future and the power of the Holy Spirit. But in between His humble service and hopeful promise, we read about something else going on here.



Read John 13:18-30 and John 13:31-38


Discussion Questions:

1. What two events do we read about here? (Jesus predicts Judas’ betrayal and Peter’s denial.)

2. How does Jesus reveal His betrayer? (The disciples ask who it is, and Jesus indicates it was to whomever He handed the bread, then He hands the bread to Judas.)

3. How does Jesus reveal Peter’s denial? (Peters claims he’d die for Jesus and Jesus says he won’t even claim Him as an associate before the next morning.)

4. What is the overall tone of these two passages? (Depressing, disappointing, sad, etc.)

MAKING IT REAL (25 minutes)

In what we read, we saw a scandalous truth: Jesus accurately predicts His own betrayal by Judas and denial by Peter. What is scandalous is that before that He washes the disciples’ feet, and after that He comforts them and promises them the Holy Spirit.


General Discussion:

• If you were eating with someone you knew would betray you (leading to your death) and your denial, how would you feel like treating them before and after dinner? (Ignore them, be rude to them, distance yourself, not serve them, etc.)

• What does Jesus do that is radically different? (He serves them, is kind to them, comforts them, and promises them future help.)

• Do you think that was difficult for Him to do? Why or why not? (Allow students to share.)

• Do you think you could ever be capable of such behavior? Why or why not? (Allow students to share.)


In John 13 and 14, Jesus is teaching us how to love. It is a love He calls us to live out as well. The same John that wrote this Gospel advances this theme in a letter he wrote. Let's read that letter.



Read 1 John 4:7-21


Discussion Questions:

1. What command does John give throughout this passage? (“Love one another”)

2. If we disobey this command, what can’t we claim, per this passage? (That we belong to God, follow God, etc.)

3. How do we know God loves us? (Jesus came, lived among us, died for us, etc.)

4. What happens, per verse 12, if we love one another? (God lives in us and His love is made complete in us.)

5. Per verse 19, why do we love? (Because Jesus first loved us.)


Jesus has shown us how to love. If we don’t love one another, we can’t claim to love God. We would do well to consider how Jesus loved and love that same way.


Kind of like in our game before, I want you to take a paper heart and write words that describe the way Jesus loves. You get one minute again.


General Discussion:

• What did you write? (Allow students to share.)

• Are the words on that heart different from your first heart? (They are probably different, so allow students to share.)

• When we think of love, we should think of the way Jesus loved. That’s love. Do you think you can love like that? (It’s difficult, but if we say we love God then we must love that way.)

• There may be some people you don’t want to love like that. Please name the biblical exceptions for our love. (There are none.)


We need to love like Jesus. It’s not easy. So, let’s pray for strength and wisdom to do it.

CLOSING PRAYER (3 minutes)

Pray for your students and yourself. Pray that you will all love like Jesus.
