This Week In Quest :: Jesus is born.

Main point: Jesus is born.
Bible story: Jesus is Born ● Luke 2:1-7

As a family, read “Jesus is Born” (Luke 2:1-7) 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?” (Mary and Joseph traveled to Bethlehem and it was time for Jesus to be born. There wasn’t room for them at the inn, but they were able to stay in the stable.)
  • “When Joseph and Mary arrived in Bethlehem, where was Jesus born?” (a stable)
  • “Who gave us Jesus?” (God gave us Jesus.)

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

  • Morning Time: When you go into your child’s room, cuddle them and say: “It’s Christmas time, (child’s name)! Everything is looking so Christmassy! All of the decorations remind me how special Jesus is. We know Jesus is special because Jesus is God’s Son!”
  • Cuddle Time: Cuddle with your child and pray: “God, (child’s name) and I are getting so excited about Christmas! Everywhere we look we see all kinds of fun decorations. Please help us remember that all of these decorations are to celebrate that Jesus was born! And Jesus is the MOST wonderful because Jesus is Your Son!”
  • Drive Time: While on the go, take turns making animal sounds and guessing the animal. Talk about how there were no rooms for Mary and Joseph when they got to Bethlehem so they had to stay in a stable where animals lived. And that stable was where baby Jesus was born!
  • Bath Time: Add toy people and barn animals to bath time. Pretend the people are Mary, Joseph, and baby Jesus. As your child plays with the toys, say: “Mary and Joseph had to stay in a room with animals because there were no more rooms. When Jesus was born, Mary wrapped Him carefully and laid Him in a manger.”
