Doing some research into resources for preparation for Confirmation, I was reminded of this project a number of us worked on a little while back. Developed by a group of Brisbane Anglicans, this series of engaging and thought provoking videos exploring the life and meaning of Jesus Christ from a youth perspective might be perfect material to draw on for such a purpose.
The Word Up series explores Jesus’ life and teachings and what he means for us today, two thousand years after he lived among us. Who exactly was he? And, why is what he said and did so important? This six episode series looks at these questions, and gets us thinking. Teacher and Student study guides are available as free downloads from the site.
The six webisodes ask:
- Was Jesus real?
- What did Jesus teach us?
- Was Jesus really a friend of sinners?
- Why did Jesus die?
- Did Jesus really rise from the dead?
- Was Jesus who he said he was?
Have a look and tell me what you think.
