KS3 activity ideas and resources
Who is Jesus? This is the key question in the Christian faith.
Jesus spent three years meeting and teaching people. When he died, he left a devoted group of a few hundred followers. Today, 2 billion people worldwide call themselves Christians. But what makes Jesus so central to Christians’ lives today? For Christians, Jesus makes it possible for all people to know God.
They also believe that when Jesus died, he took the punishment for all of their individual sins (the things they have done wrong) making what he did on the cross the most important thing in Christianity.
