Topic: John's Witness of Jesus
Description: The scripture selected for this lesson was 1 John 1:1-4 (NIV). 1 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched—this we proclaim concerning the Word of life. 2 The life appeared; we have seen it and testify to it, and we proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and has appeared to us. 3 We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ. 4 We write this to make our joy complete
This passage tells about the witness of Jesus’ manifestation to his followers and the early church. We know that everywhere Jesus went there were crowds that followed Him. There may have been some differences of opinion as to what occurred as he healed, taught or performed miracles. But for John and the apostles, this manifestation was unmistakable because they walked with Him; they ate with Him and watched Him suffer.

To help the audience understand, I projected a video on background information on the author and the culture in that day. After that we read the passage of scripture-1 John 1:1-4 (NIV). From that passage the topic and an outline were given- MAIN IDEA: The Witness of Jesus’ Manifestation to his followers and to the early church-Topic: John’s Witness of Jesus- Outline-The Revelation of Jesus, Declaration of Jesus and Purpose and conclusion.

a) The students will use the information found in the exploration stage to talk about how they spent the recent summer vacation, using both the preterite and imperfect tenses. The teacher will write down five questions to guide the students. N.B. Each question relates to one of the boxes on the concept map. The teacher will allow students to pass around a ball and whoever has the ball when she says “paren”, will stand and talk about how he/she spent the holiday, using the questions along with the information on their concept maps.
