The Cross The Passion, Death, and Resurrection About this Life Night This Life Night unexpectedly begins with the Proclaim in order to demonstrate that God works in unexpected ways. The Proclaim is about Jesus’ life and ministry and the struggle the Jewish people had in recognizing Him as the Messiah. Then, for the Break, the teens pray through a Reflection on the Passion. For the Send, the music minister leads the teens in praising God for the Resurrection and Jesus’ victory over sin and death. Then, in a reverse Gather, the teens celebrate the Resurrection with games and food. Goal of This Night The goal of this Life Night is to allow teens to enter into the events of the Passion, Death, and Resurrection of Jesus in a personal way. Catechism # 596 # 597 Scripture Matthew 3:17 Matthew 4:1 Luke 5:11 John 7:52 Key Concepts • Jesus Christ was not what the people of the time expected of a savior. They struggled to understand Who He was and what He came to do. • Jesus’ divinity was revealed in His miracles, healings, teachings, and especially in His Transfiguration and Baptism. • Jesus’ death on the cross was even more unexpected than His life and ministry.
