Paul Escaped in a Basket Bible Craft

When Paul became a Christian, he became a strong advocate for the Christian faith. This caused him to make enemies of his old friends. When they plotted to kill him, Paul escaped by being lowered out a window in a basket. This craft will help children remember how the Lord delivered Paul from his enemies.
