Learning how to lead another person to Jesus is a crucial skill in the Christian life. This Philip and the Ethiopian Story Illustration will help children learn about Philip and better understand how to talk to others about Jesus and why it is so important.
Philip and the Ethiopian
God directed Philip to travel on the road that went from Jerusalem to Gaza. There he met an Ethiopian official with whom he shared Christ. The lesson activities below will help children understand what happened during this encounter, as well as the importance of sharing the good news of Christ with all people.
When guided by the Holy Spirit, Philip spoke to an Ethiopian man who then believed in Jesus and was baptized. This cute paper plate craft will help children remember the story of Jesus and how all of us should share Jesus with others.
This fun jigsaw puzzle is a great activity for your children to do as you talk to them about the importance of telling others about Jesus.
In this picture of Philip talking with the Ethiopian official about Jesus, pictures of ten small items are discretely placed. Can your children find the hidden pictures? They may even find several you’re unable to find!
In this activity, three intersecting mazes form one maze. Can you make your way through it from Jerusalem to Gaza? Your children quite likely can, and they can show you the right way. Be sure to give them the opportunity to do so.
What are some words you might look for in a word search puzzle based on Philip’s conversation with the Ethiopian official?
