One time while I was teaching, my students questioned if Jesus really has been tempted in the same ways as them. They started noting things like the temptations and pressures that social media and modern day schooling bring. That is when I created this lesson.
This lesson was designed to help teenagers understand the differences between sin and temptation, the 3 categories of temptation, how Jesus' temptations were actually more difficult than ours, and how to deal with the 3 types of temptations. This lesson plan uses a lot of scripture, discussion, and graphic organizers to help the students gain an understanding of the topic.
The lesson plan is thorough and will easily guide you through teaching your students about this topic.
