Certainly one of the most important things we could help a child understand is that Jesus is alive. Without the reality of the resurrection, Christianity is simply another religion. It is the resurrection that validates Jesus’ divine Sonship and demonstrates He is God in the flesh. So while it may be difficult for older preschoolers to understand the many deep and challenging theological implications of His death and resurrection, the resurrection is a truth they easily can grasp as children in a way that can settle firmly into their hearts. It is a truth that will help establish the foundation of a growing faith. Children need to believe Jesus is alive, whether they fully understand how that’s possible. The lessons in this unit reveal this core reality. They reveal that Jesus is the central figure of God’s unfolding story, that Jesus is worthy of our love and honor and that He is alive today.
Jesus is the promised Messiah and King of the Old Testament who inaugurated the Kingdom of God when He came and died on the cross. Following the crucifixion, God raised Jesus from the dead to show He is God’s Son and reveal the beginning of the restored creation that is God’s Kingdom.
