This is the Jesus Taught Important Truths unit.
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 Jesus Taught Important Truths unit can help your preschoolers develop a good 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. A printable PDF of the Unit Overview Page is accessible here.
Unit Bible Lessons
In this lesson, preschoolers will learn about Nicodemus and the questions he had for Jesus on the night he and Jesus talked. They’ll also learn about the important answers Jesus gave.
How should we pray? Even preschoolers can learn from the Model Prayer Jesus gave to His disciples. That prayer is the focus of this lesson.
Can preschoolers understand what forgiveness means? Jesus’ parable of the lost son will help them begin to understand it. That parable is the focus of this lesson.
Preschoolers as well as adults can learn a great deal about giving from the example set by a poor widow who gave her two last coins to God. That event, as well as Jesus’ statements about what the woman did, is the focus of this lesson.
