He Is Risen

This is one of the most exciting things we can teach our children! The gospel! This is in a series of teaching ideas about Jesus Christ's death, resurrection, and ascension, part of the "Jesus Christ Our Savior" series.
Bible Verse: "He is not here, but is risen" Luke 24:6a
Parent Preparation: Pray. Read: John 20:1-18, Mark 16:1-8, Luke 24:1-9, Matthew 28:1-10
Song: "Christ Arose" by Go Fish, listen to it on the Spotify playlist "He Is Risen"
Supplies: Paper plate with a "smiley face" drawn on one side, and a "sad face" drawn on the other side.

 Teaching Ideas:
  •  (Show your child the "sad face" on the paper plate. Use a solemn voice when talking.)
  • Jesus was nailed to a tree and died. In doing this he paid for our sins. This was a really sad time.
  • He was buried in a tomb. He was in the tomb for 3 days and 3 nights. (count to 3 with your child).
  • (Show "smiley face") We are going to read about what then happened that was worth rejoicing about.
  • Read Luke 24:1-9
  • Have your child echo the Bible verse, Luke 24:6a.
 Additional Teaching Ideas:
  • Read Romans 10:9-10. Talk with your child how we can believe and become born again.
  • Read John 16:22 holding smiley/sad face. He told his disciples that first they were going to be sad (show sad face) because he would soon die. But he said that they would then rejoice (show happy face). Jesus knew that God would raise him from the dead, and that they would rejoice.
  • Read Matthew 27:62-66. Can guards stop God? God is the Creator of heaven and earth. He can raise people from the dead. The guards weren't about to stop God!
