Explanations/ Inputs

We are called God’s children. We are adopted sons and daughters of God. Through
Jesus Christ, God revealed himself and offered His own self for the salvation of the world.
There is no greater love who sacrifices His own self for his brethren. The ultimate Love was
given from our creator himself who gave the true example of loving.

Recall the saving acts of God in the Old Testament – from the Exile towards the Promised Land
(Canaan)

God revealed Himself in stages. God reveal himself through the biblical signs made up of
words and deeds. He made covenants with Noah, with Abraham, and with Moses. He
performed greatest works and wonders for His chosen people, and proclaim the wonderful
saving power and truth through the prophets words. CCC 56-64.

Through his chosen men and women, God led, liberated, and corrected His people. He
forgave their sins. He thus revealed Himself as Yahweh, He – who – with His people. He is
the Lord a merciful and gracious God, slow to anger and rich in kindness and fidelity (Ex
34:6). Today through His inspired word in the Old Testament, God still reveals Himself to
us and inspires us to respond to his Covenant.

Relate Jesus in the New Testament as the concrete manifestation of God’s Love for all of us all… Relate it
to the short film clip and addressing the passage from John 3:16 “ For God so loved the world that he gave
