Challenging changes await the adult students who will explore the biblical truths set forth in these five lessons. This year’s study will be an exploration of the unchangeable truths of God’s Word. Those who choose to study these truths will enjoy a life-changing experience that will enhance their daily walk with the Lord Jesus Christ. Some simple, yet profound truths are set forth in this year’s Vacation Bible School.
Theme for VBS 2012: The theme for this year’s VBS is entitled “Sunlight Express . . . Jesus and Me.” The students will learn of the things Jesus does for them because He loves them. This particular study of the Bible will lead the students to experience the life-changing presence of Jesus Christ as they walk daily with the Lord.
Lesson 1: Jesus Saves.The story in the Bible is taken from John 3:1- 7. It relates the conversation between Jesus and Nicodemus who came to Jesus by night. His discussion with Jesus resulted in his being born again. This resulted in a total change in his nature and life. Compare this life-changing experience with your experience of salvation.
Lesson 2: Jesus Leads. The story in the Bible is taken from John 10:1- 9, 27. It relates how Jesus leads His people and how they follow Him. Compare this with your salvation experience and Christ’s guidance in your life.
Lesson 3: Jesus Cares. This lesson is taken from Mark 4:35-41. The writer of the second gospel was Mark. He is also known as John Mark. Mark was the son of one of the New Testament Marys, and a nephew of Barnabas. He was an associate of the apostles. He is mentioned in the writings of Paul and Luke. (See Acts 12:12; 15:37, 39; Colossians 4:10; 2 Timothy 4:11; Philemon 24, 25.) The words straightway, forthwith, immediately and anon are words which are characteristic of Mark’s writings. In his writings, he presents Jesus Christ as the Servant of God. Tradition reveals that Mark wrote this book from the city of Rome, and this cannot be disproven. There seems to be some validity to the idea that he wrote for the Roman reader. There has never been any reason- able doubt about this book having been written in the Greek language.
Lesson 4: Jesus Lives. The biblical basis for this lesson is taken from Luke 24:1-9. This Scripture reveals Jesus Christ arose from the dead on the first day of the week. On the present-day calendar that would be what we know as Sunday. This is why we meet to worship God each Sunday.
Lesson 5: Jesus Returns. The scriptural basis for this lesson is Acts 1:9-12. Jesus Himself made an unchangeable declaration that He will return to gather all of His people unto Himself. This event is commonly called the second coming of Christ.
