September 20, 2020: Victorious Love (Genesis 42:6-25)

By September 14, 2020 Teacher Tips

To begin the session:

Distribute copies of the “Movie Plot: Revenge Is Mine!” exercise from the activity page, which you can download here. Divide the class into groups to complete as indicated. (For those participating online, use Zoom breakouts to create discussion groups.) After 10 minutes or so, have groups share results.

After the activity, share a story of a time when you entertained thoughts of revenge against a family member. Say, “I am sure many if not all of us have our own revenge stories, whether of revenge merely pondered or actually carried out. Let’s see how one servant of God dealt with this same temptation.”

To engage the learners in a study of the Scripture text:

Split the class in half (physically and/or via Zoom breakouts) and give each group copies of the “Be It Resolved” exercise from the activity page. Conduct the indicated debate after groups develop their arguments.

Note: Whenever you distribute copies of anything, use hard-copy (paper) handouts for those physically present and e-copies for those joining online Zoom.

Tip: For a tutorial on how to use Zoom breakouts, go here. For many other Zoom tutorials, see here. A key to using Zoom effectively without fumbling is to practice ahead of time!
