Ideal lesson to begin a Religious Education unit on Christianity, Jesus, the Bible/Scriptures.
A self-contained lesson that checks and fills in common, crucial gaps in students' essential background knowledge. Corrects the most common misconceptions about the Jews and Jesus, which hinder students' later learning about Jesus' significance for the outgrowth of Biblical, monotheistic religion.
Seven slides - nothing unnecessary, no need to hurry.
Includes questions in the *Speaker's Notes* and on slides. These break up the chalk and talk, activate prior learning, and get students listening to each other. They can be short written tasks or oral questioning with thinking time. Use as a diagnostic to assess students' initial level of historical/religious understanding
