Philip and the Ethiopian Sunday School Lesson

Use this Philip and the Ethiopian Sunday School lesson to tell the story and the need to tell others about Jesus.


Needed: Bibles

Lesson: (Note: Always give students a chance to answer the questions before you clarify the teaching.)

Ask students, How do people learn about God and Jesus? (Accept all reasonable answers.)

How did you all learn about God and Jesus? (Again accept all reasonable answers.)

One way people learn about God and Jesus is by other people telling them. Who are some of the people that tell you about God and Jesus? (Accept all reasonable answers and help them think of         others who might teach them about God and Jesus. Ideas could be parents, grandparents, Sunday School teachers, pastors, etc.)

(Have students take turns reading Acts 8:26-31, or read it yourself.)

What was the man in the chariot reading? (The book of Isaiah in the Bible.)

Could the man in the chariot understand what he was reading in the Bible or did he need help? (He needed help.)

(Have students take turns reading Acts 8:32-35, or read it yourself.)

When Philip explained the Bible story to the man, did the man understand? (Yes.)

Who told Philip to help them man understand the Bible story? Look in verse 26 if you don’t remember. (God sent an angel to tell Philip to help him.)

Do you think God wants you to help other people understand about God and Jesus too? (Yes.)

You can help other people learn about God and Jesus just like Philip did. You can help other people learn just like someone helped you learn.

(Have students take turns reading Acts 8:36-40, or read it yourself.)

After the man was baptized, where did Philip go? (God teleported him. God made him disappear and show up someplace else to teach other people about God and Jesus.)

God always wants us to go tell more and more people about Jesus. When we’re done telling one person, we should go try to tell someone else.
