Bible Lesson Homework
-The Promise of a Savior is repeated in many times in the Old Testament. Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob received the Promise of a Savior.
Jacob received the promise in a beautiful dream. Read Genesis 28: 10-22. Look for these words in verse 14.“All people on earth will be blessed through you and your offspring.”
雅各在梦中领受了他的应许。阅读创世纪 28：10-22. 注意看14节里的这些词语：¡¡ã 你的后裔必像地上的尘沙那样多，必向东西南北开展。地上万族必因你和你的后裔得福。¡¡À
-Jacob sinned by lying to his father. He repented. He was sorry he had lied. God forgave him. His father forgave Jacob also.
God has given us parents to lead and guide as we grow older. He wants us to honor them, as Jacob learned to do. He wants us to honor our parents and obey them. Ephesians 6:1 & 2 , Children, obey your parents in the Lord for this is right. “Honor your father and mother.”
–God’s love is for everyone. Here is a song to sing this week:
Jesus loves me this I know
As He loved so long ago.
Taking children on his knee
Saying ,”Let them come to me.”
Yes, Jesus loves me.
Yes, Jesus loves me.
Yes, Jesus loves me.
The Bible tells me so.
-Please try to memorize John 3:16-God so loved the world that He gave his one and only Son.
Review Genesis 1: 1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
-请默记约翰福音3:16 – 神爱世人，甚至将他的独生子赐给他们，叫一切信他的，不至灭亡，反得永生。

Lesson Plan 4- April 19
Prayer: Dear Jesus, on this Easter Eve, we thank you for allowing us to study together again. Be with us today. Make our faith grow as we talk about your Plan to take us to heaven. Thank You for dying for us. Thank You for rising so long ago and giving us the Bible to know all that you did for us. Thank You for Your eternal love. Amen.
How did God’s perfect world become imperfect? (The devil tempted Adam and Eve to disobey God’s command. They ate fruit from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil.)
What was God’s plan to save them from eternal death? (God would send a Savior who would die, but rise again to show His victory over the devil.)
Who is stronger, Jesus or the devil? (Jesus is stronger.)
Why are we also imperfect? Sin entered the world through one man, (Adam and Eve) and death through sin, and in this way death came to all men, because all sinned. ..Romans 5:12. We receive our sinful nature from our parents. Since Adam and Eve sinned all their children were sinful. No one was ever born perfect again.
Jacob and God’s Plan of Salvation 雅各和上帝的拯救计划
** This section is from Lesson 3 –Questions 1-7
God told many people about His Plan of Salvation in the Old Testament. There are many accounts of the lives of these believers. Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob are three of the faithful believers of the Old Testament.
Jacob was leaving home. He was going to his uncle Laban. He had lied to his father and his brother. He was afraid and sorry that he had sinned. Read Genesis 28:10-17.
雅各要离开家去他的叔叔拉班那里。他不得不对他的父、兄说谎。他为自己的罪感到恐惧和抱歉。【见 创世纪 28：10 – 17】
Where did Jacob sleep? (Jacob slept on the ground with a stone for a pillow.)
雅各在哪里睡的觉？ 【 雅各在地上以石为枕而睡】
What was Jacob’s dream? (He dreamed of angels going up and down a stairway. The stairway reached from the ground to heaven. God was at the top. God talked to Jacob in his dream)
Which five things did God promise Jacob？
-to give Jacob the land on which he was lying.
-his family would be so large he could not count them.
-all people on earth would be blessed through Jacob’s family. Jesus would be born from his family. Verse 14 says, “All people on earth will be blessed through you and your offspring.”
-He would always be with Jacob.
-He would bring Jacob back to the land God promised him.)
Did God keep all of those promises? Yes He did! 上帝兑现这些承诺了嘛？ 【是的！】
Did you notice that the great believers in the Bible are all sinners?
** New section of Lesson 4 begins here. 第四课
Relationships – God, parents, children 关系- 上帝， 父母， 孩子
Let’s compare family relationships and our relationship with God.
God created man and woman in His holy image. Children are born in parent’s sinful image.
God is our Father. He loves us and guides us perfectly. God gave parents to every child on earth. These parents love and guide their children.
God disciplines us to keep us close to Him. Our parents discipline children to keep them close to God.
God wants us to honor, love and obey Him. God wants children to honor, love, and obey Him and their parents.
Ephesians 6:1,2- Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother.”
Can you think of a reason why obeying parents is very necessary? (Children need to honor, love and obey their parents so that they can do the job God gave them. Our parent’s job is to teach children about God. They need to teach us about God’s Plan of Salvation, and all of God’s love and help for giving us a successful and fulfilling life in Jesus。
Dear Father in Heaven, Thank You for sending your Son to be our Savior! Thank You for loving us so much. Thank You for forgiving us all of the bad that we do. Thank You for keeping all of your promises. Because of Jesus we pray. Amen.
Review Bible words:
Memorize: Ephesians 6:1, 2- Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother.”
Read Luke 1; 26-28 and Luke 1:46-55 Now we are going to study from the New Testament. The book that tells of Jesus’ birth is the book of Luke, the third book in the New Testament.
阅读路加福音1章 26-28节 和 46-55节. 现在我们要开始学习圣经新约。新约里的第三本书，路加福音为我们讲述了耶稣的降生。
God had promised a Savior to Adam and Eve.
God promised a Savior to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob.
God promised a Savior (Jesus) to all people so they would not have to die eternally because of their sin.
God kept His promise. He sent His Son Jesus to die for everyone.
