Developing

The learner understands that the Gospels give accounts of Jesus’ death and resurrection and that Jesus’ death was somehow ‘for us’.

Secure

The learner knows that Christians interpret Jesus’ death in variety of ways:

·         a sacrifice for sin

·         victory over sin, death and the devil

·         paying the punishment as a substitute for everyone’s sins

·         rescuing the lost – leading them to God

·         leading from darkness to light, slavery to freedom

…and celebrate His sacrifice through Holy Communion, (also called The Last Supper, the Eucharist or Mass).

The learner will know of how the death of other key figures from World Religions, such as Muhammad, Moses or Krishna have been recorded.

Mastery
