This Week In Quest Preschool :: People came to hear Jesus because He teaches important things.

Main point: People came to hear Jesus because He teaches important things.
Bible story: Jesus Teaches a Crowd ● Mark 6:30-34

As a family, read “Jesus Teaches a Crowd” (Mark 6:30-34) from a children’s Bible. (CLICK HERE for children’s Bible recommendations.) 

After reading the Bible story, discuss these questions together:

  • What happened in the Bible story? (Jesus and the disciples went to a beach to rest and pray. While they were there, people came from far away to see Jesus.)
  • The people listened to Jesus teach important things. Does Jesus teach you important things too? (yes)

This week, engage in everyday moments to continue the conversation: 

    • Morning Time: When you go into your child’s room, cuddle them and say: “Good morning, (child’s name)! I’m so happy you’re my friend, and I’m your friend, and that Jesus wants to be our friend forever!”
    • Cuddle Time: Cuddle with your child and pray: “God, I believe Jesus loves us and wants to teach us important things. Help (child’s name) and me listen to Jesus and do what He says.”
    • Bath Time: Add toy people/figures and a bathtub crayon to bath time. Draw a road on the bathtub. Encourage your child to walk the people on the road as you sing the following words to the tune of “Following the Leader.”
      • “We’re going to hear Jesus, Jesus, Jesus. We’re going to hear Jesus teach important things.
    • Drive Time: While on the go, talk about the different teachers you both have had for school, church, sports, art, etc. Talk about how Jesus is an amazing teacher who came to teach us important things about God and how to love one another.
