Today’s Christian teenagers find themselves living in a culture that is antagonistic to much of what they believe. Against this backdrop, how do they know how to engage with culture in a way that keeps their influence intact, but keeps them from being negatively impacted by the world? The good news is that Jesus had lots to say about this.

Jesus and Culture: A 4-Lesson Bible Study, one of the 13 Jesus Studies Bible studies, helps teenagers understand how to live as Christ-followers in the world they find themselves living in. Students will learn:

  • How to embrace being separate from the world but still living in it
  • How their lives as Christ-followers will be counter-cultural
  • How they are affected by what they consume of culture through media and entertainment
  • That Christ’s ultimate goal for them is to embrace holiness in their interactions with culture

Teach Jesus And Culture and help students discover how powerful their impact on their world can be.

  • Lesson Overview
  • What's Included
  • Jesus Studies 52-Week Strategy
  • Lesson 1: Alike But Not Alike

    Lesson Objectives: That they are called by Jesus to be in the world, but to live as if they were separate; and to honestly evaluate their relationship with culture, and who their actions say they more strongly identify with: Christ or the world. (John 15:18-21)

    Lesson 2: Different Than The Rest

    Lesson Objectives: That Jesus wants His followers to be countercultural in their humility, living in the world as servants of others; and to identify any actions or attitudes in their lives that represent culture’s definition of success through selfishness, and to commit to embracing Jesus’ idea of success through serving others. (Mark 10:35-45)

    Lesson 3: Making An Impact

    Lesson Objectives: That as Christ-followers committed to the Gospel, they must be willing to bravely impact culture, especially those who are most in need of Christ’s love; and to identify the people in their world who are most in need of Christ, and to commit to engaging with them with the purpose of sharing the Gospel. (Matthew 9:9-13)

    Lesson 4: The Call To Holiness

    Lesson Objectives: That Jesus wants His followers to interact with culture through lives that are Christ-like: holy and set apart for God’s purposes; and to understand exactly the vision Jesus casts for their lives, and to seek to embrace this vision as they engage and interact with their culture. (John 17:13-19)

  • Secure your next year of Bible study strategy today with the Jesus Studies 52-Week Strategy

    Fears every Youth Worker has when selecting a year-long Bible Study: 

    • The fear of locking into a Bible study that looks good on the surface but doesn't go any deeper than surface-level 
    • The fear of being a few weeks into a study and it not meeting the expectations you set 
    • The fear of picking a study that doesn't ultimately speak into the lives of your students

    It doesn't have to be this way.

    You don’t need to be reminded of the issues teenagers deal with as they try to live out their faith in a world that’s often opposed to their core beliefs. Navigating these issues can be rough. Teenagers get so many mixed messages; the world says one thing, their friends may say another. And we hope they know enough about their faith to know how to make sense of it all. 

    The Jesus Studies, a 52-week Bible study strategy, cut through the confusion, teaching your students a Christ-centered look at the major issues they deal with in their lives. 

    These are not watered-down, topical Bible studies. These studies reveal how Jesus weighs in on the very issues your students are confronted with on a daily basis. Your students will learn to see life through the person of Christ.

    Your students will journey through the following concepts: Jesus and Identity, Your Faith, Jesus and Culture, Jesus and Loving Others, Jesus and Tough Times, Jesus and Your Image, Jesus and Stress, Jesus and Forgiveness, Jesus and Influence, Jesus and Relationships, Jesus and Your Future, Jesus and Mean People, and Jesus and Stuff.

    Teach The Jesus Studies to equip your students to see the relevant issues of their lives through the words of Jesus.
