Recently, I was asked by my pastor to be a Sunday School Teacher for our teens. I begin to search for content that will bring Scriptures to life for our teens. Although the teens have participated in our Christmas pageants, my goal is to develop a deeper understanding and relationship with God. Celebrating and understanding our Savior’s birth, builds upon the teens understanding the significance of His death and resurrection.
Rose Publishing has published a pamphlet entitled, “The Christmas Story.” This publication covers the Advent Season including the Advent of Hope, Advent of Peace, Advent of Joy, and Advent of Love. The pamphlet provides a recount of the anticipated Savior and the need for His arrival. It provides an overview of the celebratory and suggested sacred practices of the season including scriptural references and songs. Old and New Testaments Scriptures are emphasized to highlight the promise and fulfillment of prophesy.
I believe that Rose Publishing provides a good structure for recounting the greatest story of love, peace, joy, and hope while highlighting the prophesy in the Old Testament and revealing the fulfillment in the New Testament. This is a great read for teens and Adults. I would definitely recommend this pamphlet for small study groups and parents to teach their children about the true meaning of Christmas.
