Jesus Taught Important Truths (Four Lessons)

All Christians need to understand and submit to the authority of Jesus as Lord. Children can begin to develop an understanding of Jesus’ authority even as preschoolers. One way we can help them do this is by helping them study the teachings of Jesus. The very act of teaching about his teachings will underscore His authority and help them see that He and His teachings are special. Jesus did, in fact, teach about many important things, including God’s love, prayer, forgiveness, and giving.

The lessons in this unit can help your preschoolers develop a healthy understanding of Jesus’ authority, but they will also lay the foundation for important truths your children will need as they mature, choose to follow Christ, and live as His disciples. Lessons in this unit are listed below. Just click on each lesson title to access the individual lessons.
