Jesus Sunday School Lesson - Jesus the Groom

Use this Jesus Sunday School lesson to teach children how much Jesus loves us.

Needed: Bibles

Lesson: (Note: Always allow students enough time to think about and to give their answers to the questions before clarifying the teaching.)

How many of you have ever been to a wedding?

Are people happy when they get married or sad? (Happy.)

Everyone make a happy face.

(Have students take turns reading Matthew 9:14-15, or read it yourself.)

Jesus said that when He came down from Heaven when He was born, it was like He was getting married. That’s because He loves us so much.

Everyone put your hands over your heart.

Jesus loves us even more than a husband and wife love each other.

But then Jesus died on the cross. How do you think Jesus’ followers felt when He died? (Sad.)

Everyone make a sad face.

Why did Jesus die on the cross? (To forgive us for our sins so that we could be saved.)

But then, three days later, God raised Jesus from the dead and everyone was happy again.

Everyone make a happy face.

But then, forty days after that, it was time for Jesus to go back up to Heaven and everyone was sad because they couldn’t see Jesus anymore.

Everyone make a sad face.

But Jesus said that someday, He will come back to Earth and will live with us forever. Then, we will all be happy…Everyone make a happy face…and we will never die or get sick or have anything bad happen to us ever again.
