The Lenten study for the GRACE class will be “Son of God.” The six-session study features video clips from the theatrical movie “Son of God” and videos from Pastor Rick Warren explaining Jesus’ teachings and their impact on people’s lives. Topics include baptism, temptation, suffering, death, resurrection and ministry. Scenes from the movie such as Jesus being baptized by John the Baptist will help illustrate each topic.

About the Curriculum
The small group curriculum resource by Warren is a companion piece to “Son of God,” produced by husband-and-wife team Mark Burnett and Roma Downey. “Son of God: The Life of Jesus in You” is a DVD small group Bible study, which features Warren explaining how you can find your purpose in studying the life of Jesus.
“There’s nothing more important you can do with your life than spending time getting to know Jesus,” Warren, pastor of Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, Calif., and author of “The Purpose Driven Life,” said. “Through the ‘Son of God’ study, people will receive practical teaching on the life of Jesus and its impact on individual lives and life purpose. Jesus’ teaching transforms from the inside out.”
“Son of God” is the second Bible-based production from Downey and Burnett. The first was “The Bible,” the history-making miniseries on the History Channel viewed by more than 100 million people.
