Focus on the Sunday Gospel for the 4th Sunday in Ordinary Time.
Use this unit study to help teach children that God's saving love is for all people. This lesson is based on Luke 4:21-30.
In this week’s Gospel, Jesus angers those in the Temple by sharing that He came to save all of the humanity, not just a specific group. This preaching of Christ should make all people joyful, and yet many are not, due to their pride. We must remember that God’s saving love is available to everyone. It is not only for “holy” people but rather it is offered to every person - saint and sinner alike.
