Road To Emmaus

This is in a series of teaching ideas about Jesus Christ's death, resurrection, and ascension, as part of the "Jesus Christ Our Savior" series.

Bible Verse: "he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself." Luke 24:27b NIV
Parent Preparation: Pray. Read Luke 24:9-35, Mark 16:12-13. For further reference read Acts 3:22-24, Deuteronomy 18:15 &19, Isaiah 53, and "Jesus Christ Our Passover" pp333-341.

Teaching Ideas:
  •  Jesus died and God raised him from the dead. We are going to learn of some of what Jesus did before he ascended and was seated on God's right hand.
  • (with your child look at a Bible lands map and find Jerusalem and Emmaus. Talk with your child about how in Bible times they would walk everywhere.)
  • Read Luke 24:13-35 (or equivalent record in a children's Bible).
  • (Highlight verse 16. Make sure that your child understands that the disciples didn't know it was Jesus they were talking to!)
  • (Have your child echo Luke 24:27b). In the Old Testament, before Jesus was born, God had people write down verses about the coming Savior, the Messiah. (Show your child the Old Testament in your Bible.) Jesus taught them verses from the Old Testament about himself.
Additional Teaching Ideas:
  • Read with your child some verses from the Old Testament about the Savior to come. Some ideas are Deuteronomy 18:15 (Acts 3:22-24), or Isaiah 53:5.
  • Read Luke 24:32. Have your child paint a heart with "fire" colors.
  • Listen to Lisa Tracy's song "Emmaus".
