Each lesson has games, crafts, and other activities to help you teach the stories and to help the kids apply the message. I’m also including a list of resources you might want to add to the lessons to make them that much better.

Recommended Extras
You don’t need anything extra to use the lessons. I will, however, provide some suggestions you might find helpful. You can use these resources in addition to or instead of the ideas I’ve provided.

Here are the resources I recommend for the entire series. I’ll list story-specific resources at the end of each lesson.

The Complete Illustrated Children’s Bible – for telling the stories with beautiful artwork and Biblical accuracy

The Beginner’s Bible: Timeless Stories for Children – for telling the stories to younger children

Manga Comic Book: Messiah – for your classroom or church library

My Big Book of Bible Heroes Devotional – a devotional to recommend for families or older students

Jesus in the Spotlight (Discover 4 Yourself series) – an in-depth Bible study book for older children based on John 1-10
