When students enter into a salvation-relationship with Jesus, their identities are forever changed. A new identity is born in place of the old one. This is the “new creation” Paul talks about in 2 Corinthians 5. This new identity is one that finds its definition and purpose in Christ, and Jesus had lots to say about this.

Jesus and Identity: A 4-Lesson Bible Study gives teenagers four snapshots of what this new identity looks like. Students will learn:

  • What Jesus meant when He challenged them to be salt and light
  • That Jesus defines greatness differently than the world
  • That their true purpose is found in “remaining” in Christ
  • That Jesus wants to use them to reach the lost

Teach Jesus And Identity and help students discover who Jesus intends them to be.

  • What's Included
  • Jesus Studies 52-Week Strategy
  • Lesson 1: Created To Stand Out

    Lesson Objectives: That their lives were intended by God to be used to get the attention of the world around them, all for God’s glory; and to step back and evaluate exactly what impact their lives are having on the people they encounter on a day-to-day basis. (Matthew 5:13-16, 1 Peter 2:12}

    Lesson 2: The World, Upside Down

    Lesson Objectives: That your identity as a Christ-follower means greatness is defined differently than the world defines it; and to look around them and identify opportunities to humbly serve others in God’s name. (Mark 9:33-37, Philippians 2:3-4)

    Lesson 3: Living As Branches

    Lesson Objectives: That as Christ-followers, “remaining in Jesus” is essential to their identity, even if it means paring-off other aspects of their lives; and to consider any aspects of their lives to which they’re devoted that may be keeping them from fully following Christ most. (John 15:1-8, 1 John 2:5-6)

    Lesson 4: Work To Do

    Learning Objectives: That their identity as Christ-followers means they are Jesus’ answer to bringing the message of the Gospel to the hurting and the lost; and to commit to being more invested in being messengers of the Gospel to those who most need it. (Matthew 9:35-38, Colossians 3:12)

  • 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.
