This lesson reveals Jesus as the final sacrificial Lamb—the sufficient payment to God for the sin of all humanity. Jesus knew His purpose, and He was not deluded by Satan when tempted to use His power apart from God’s purposes. Jesus continued to fulfill God’s purposes when He performed His first miracle and as He offered salvation to a woman outside of the Jewish community and to the people of His hometown.Lesson Objectives

As you proceed through this lesson have the following question in mind.
Reflect on the judicial system and its means for achieving justice. Reflect on how the system works from the time a crime is committed and the accused person goes to trial until a verdict is reached and the criminal is sentenced. Why is this process termed the “system of justice”? How is the story of the Bible similar to our country’s system of justice? What “crime” did all humanity commit? What is the just punishment for that crime? What price, or punishment, did the people of Old Testament times pay for humanity’s crime? Why was that price not enough? Why was Jesus able to provide the one payment that was enough for every human being for all time? What was Jesus’ payment? Has justice been achieved?
