This afternoon's lesson is RE and we are on our 3rd lesson of the topic: 'What would Jesus do?'
Learning Intention: What do Jesus’ parables about forgiveness teach Christians?
In many of his parables Jesus talks about forgiveness. In the story of his crucifixion Jesus famously said of the people who crucified him, “Father, forgive them, they don’t know what they are doing.” Jesus clearly had a great capacity for forgiveness. When bad things happen to us it can often be difficult to forgive the person who we believe has wronged us.
Task 1: Read through the forgiveness scenarios. For each one consider how easy it would be for the person to forgive what has happened to them and explain your thoughts.
