Fullness of Time Divine Revelation About this Life Night This Life Night begins the semester on Sacred Scripture. Its focus is on the ways that God has revealed Himself to us, which are expressed most perfectly in Christ. The night begins with teenagers being challenged to participate in a discussion that is well above their current level of theological knowledge (and language ability). This challenge leads into the teaching for the session, which explains the necessity of God’s revelation of Himself over time and why it was important that God prepared people for the coming of Christ. The Break gives teens an opportunity to reflect on how Christ is revealed in their own lives using a discussion modeled off several passages from Sacred Scripture. The night ends with the teens being introduced to the prayer of Lectio Divina as a way to hear God’s voice. Goal of This Night The goal of this Life Night is to help teenagers understand how God has revealed Himself throughout history, particularly through Sacred Scripture. It will challenge the teens to respond to that revelation in their own lives.

This self-revelation culminates and is completed in Jesus Christ. The message of Christ is transmitted by apostolic tradition; this was passed on as living Tradition and written Tradition, recorded in Sacred Scripture – of which God is author. Faith is our personal and communal response to God’s revelation. End of Free Preview Thanks for reviewing this Life Night! If you would like the full verison of this resource please sign in.
