Jesus Raised Lazarus Coded Words
The story of Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead found in John chapter 11 is a lengthy but important story. And while it is packed with heavy theological insights, it is also an important story for children to learn. In addition to underscoring Jesus’ great power over all things, including death, some of the puzzling questions about the story (like why Jesus waited when He learned Lazarus was sick) point to the fact that Jesus was the final Passover Lamb who needed to carefully manage the circumstances leading to His death so He would be crucified precisely on the Passover. By timing His crucifixion to fall on the Passover, Jesus was declaring that He was the final and ultimate Passover Lamb who would die for the sins of the world. This Jesus Raised Lazarus From the Dead Coded Words activity will help kids learn about the story as well as Jesus’ power over death and His destiny as the Passover Lamb.
