Why do Christians believe that Jesus was the Messiah?

In this unit, pupils will learn about the concept of ‘incarnation’ and how it fits within the big story of the Bible. They will study key texts that recount the story of Jesus’ birth and the links Christians make to Old Testament prophecies. Pupils will study and discuss selected texts alongside key Christian beliefs, using theological terms. They will consider the idea of Jesus fulfilling the expectations of the Messiah, within Christian tradition, and consider the importance of this for Christians today. This is a component of the RE Today Primary RE Curriculum, accessible exclusively to NATRE Primary and Cross Phase School Enhanced members.
