The task:

Write a short essay describing ONE of the Biblical events below in graphic detail as though you had actually been present – each has a reference alongside to show you where to find it in the Bible.

Imagine being ONE OF THE PEOPLE mentioned in the Gospel account – such as Mary or one of the Apostles. Or INVENT A CHARACTER such as a bridesmaid at the wedding at Cana, or a relative of the blind man healed by Christ.

Note that some incidents are mentioned in more than one of the four Gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. You may like to look up other references too.

It will make sense to cross reference (read about the same event from different sources/books/authors) the event: what happened just before, and what happened afterwards could also make you essay more interesting. You may even think about publishing your story even if you don’t win! I will set an illustration competition to reflect you essay visually in summer term 1 for your art homework.

Your essay should use Ariel font, size 12 and must be your own unaided work.
Year 7 must write 1-2 A4 sheets
Year 8 must write 2-3 A4 sheets
Year 9 must write 2-4 A4 sheets

Here are the events from which you must choose:

• Angels announce the birth of Christ (Luke 2:4-20)
• The wedding at Cana (John 2: 1-11)
• Christ heals a blind man (Luke 18:35-43)
• Christ calms the storm at sea (Mark 4: 35-41)
• Christ is crucified (Matthew 27: 27-54)
• The Resurrection (Mark 16: 2-18)

Read – The Life of Jesus

Jesus lived and walked on earth for about 33 years in the 1st century AD. For most of his life he worked, as a carpenter, in the town of Nazareth, a busy place in northern Israel. It was only in the final three years of his life that he took to the road as a teacher, prophet and healer, attracting both followers and enemies. The ordinary people, also gathered round in large numbers to listen to his words and seek his healing powers.

Jesus raised questions as soon as he appeared on the public stage, back in the first century: Who is he? Where does he come from? How can he speak with such authority? These questions and many more have continued over the past 2,000 years and have been asked by believers, non-believers, the curious (interested), and by challengers (opponents) of the Christian faith.

No one man has been more influential (persuasive, significant) across the world than Jesus and it is not surprising that people will have an image (picture) of him, which connects (links) to who they are on a cultural (traditional) level. For some he is a great teacher whose stories transform (change) lives. Jesus may be the prophet (a person who reveals Gods truth), who challenges how people live and treat each other in society (social groups). He could be the healer who brings everlasting life and peace as the Son of God, the one who suffered for our sins. Whatever, our personal interpretation (understanding) is about Jesus he has undoubtedly (certainly) made us think.

For a Christian, Jesus is more than just a man who did good things. He is the Son of God who came to show us what God is like and through his death and resurrection (reappearance after he died); he draws us back to God.

Classwork to be completed for Homework

Your task is to:

1. Research the history of three very different images of Jesus. There are some very useful websites. Do not copy and paste information that is not your own words. Click on the link for research page: http://www.rejesus.co.uk/site/module/faces_of_jesus/
2. Create your own image of Jesus and explain why you have pictured him in this way.

Be prepared! Do your research; Look at brochures to see how others have designed theirs? All the writing must be in your own words.

Write or type your research using the correct punctuation, spelling and grammar.
Pictures that you have inserted in your booklet about Jesus must be of a good quality.

As is a brochure so ideally it should not be printed on more than 2 x A4 sheets which should then be stuck together to form 1 double sided sheet.

Make sure the text boxes and images are lined up vertically so that you can fold each sheet into three columns.

If folded correctly it will make visual and contextual sense as a brochure.

Imagine you are making this brochure for a bookshop or church foyer.
How will you make your brochure stand out in terms of interesting research and high impact images?

When writing about each image:

a. Describe what you can see in the picture.
b. Describe the way the artist portrayed Jesus, His features, clothing, facial expression, the background objects within the frame etc.
c. Explain whether the image fits your personal image of Jesus and why.
d. State who might also picture Jesus in this way other than the artist, and say why you think they see Jesus this way.
e. You can use coloured paper to print your booklet in art club.

Finally, on the last page of your booklet:

a) Create your own image. Draw it or paint it on paper, cloth, plastic, cling film, kitchen foil.
b) Your image should say lots about how you think about Jesus and what you think about Jesus in terms of his appearance.
c) our booklet should be no larger than a third of the size of an A4. sheet when folded

Remember, to take pride in the way that you present your work. Meet the deadlines due on 23rd February 2018. Have fun and do your very best!

See my email for picture examples. Surprise rewards for the three best booklets completed by 23nd February.
