 Student Notes

About the Lesson

At the end of this lesson you will:

  • Have considered key Bible passages concerning leadership and authority.
  • Have examined the concept of Servant leadership as taught and modelled by Jesus.
  • Examined the cultural impact of Biblical servant leadership centred on Christ.
  • Be able to identify the key characteristics of Christ-centred servant leadership.

The lesson is split into 3 main topics using video, which you can access from the topic list bellow. It is self-paced so you don’t have to complete it in one sitting. The total time of the three video presentations is about 55 minutes. Additionally you will frequently be invited to pause and take a moment to consider the implications of what has been discussed.  You will find that having a Bible and note book by your side is essential.

Accompanying each lesson are downloadable Student Notes.  They are almost verbatim records of the videos and so they can help you follow and review the video lessons. However you almost certainly want to pause the videos to consider the scripture passages and also take notes for yourself.


To allow translation, the Student notes for each lesson topic are also reproduced on the topic page. You can use the Google Translate facility, at the top of the sidebar, to choose the language for translation.
