Jesus Sunday School Lesson - Jesus Steals Us Back!

Use this Jesus Sunday School lesson to teach children about how Jesus saved 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.)

Have a student read Matthew 12:29, or read it yourself.

Tell students, I want you all to close your eyes and imagine the story I’m about to tell you. There is a man, sitting in his house late at night. He has lots of nice things in his house and sitting in his chair, looking at all of them. But then, all of a sudden, a very strong man, much stronger than the man in the house, breaks through the door. The strong man fights with the man and beats him. He ties him up in the chair and then the strong man takes all of the man’s nice things.

You can open your eyes for a second. Who do you think the good guy was in that story, the man who was sitting in his house, or the strong man who came in, tied up the other man, and then took all of his things?

Usually, we would say that the man in his house was the good guy and the strong man who tied up the man and took his things was the bad guy.

But now close your eyes and listen to the story again.

There is a man, sitting in his house late at night. The man is Satan, or the devil, and his house is the whole world. He has lots of nice things in his house and he’s sitting in his chair, looking at all of them. The nice things that he has, though, is people. He’s kidnapped all of the people from God by making them do bad things and turn against God. But then, all of a sudden, a very strong man, much stronger than the man in the house, breaks through the door. The strong man is Jesus. Jesus fights with the devil and beats him. He ties him up in the chair and then the strong man, Jesus, saves all of the people that the devil had kidnapped, and brings them back to God.

Now who is the good guy, the strong man, Jesus, or the man in the house, the devil?

Jesus is the good guy because He beats the devil and saves us all from him. Remember that Jesus is always stronger than Satan, and Jesus can always save us from him.
