that Christ offers. This study will help answer teens' doubts and
questions about Jesus and Salvation, and becoming a Christian.
Facts about Jesus:
Divide the group into teams of three to five, and get them to study the
Scriptures below and complete their Study Sheets. A representative from
each team should report back their findings. Possible answers are
included for each question below.
- Who do you say Jesus is? (see Matthew 16:15) - (Christ, the Son of the

sins and live forever in Heaven when we die).
The leader should discuss and summarise the findings and draw out conclusions
of what was learnt about Jesus Christ from the Bible, and how the teens should
respond to Him. Close with a prayer of commitment and action by each
