The story of Jesus raising a girl from the dead is a great Sunday School lesson, it shows so much of Jesus’ compassion for the hurting.
Last week’s Bible lesson: Jesus heals a paralytic (notice the trend?)
What I learn from Jesus raises Jairus’ daughter
Actually, my big takeaway from this lesson comes from a side-note to the story. As Jesus is heading off a woman who has been sick for years reaches out and touches Jesus’ robe, and she’s healed.
Jesus turns around and asks who touched him. All the disciples look at Jesus like he’s CRAZY, completely and totally crazy. The woman comes forward and confesses to touching Jesus.
It’s like 4 verses, but it’s a big deal.
She trusts God that she will be healed. Her faith is so big she believes if she just touches Jesus’ robe she will be healed. That’s an amazing faith, one I wish I had. It’s a faith Jesus rewarded by healing her.
Jesus heals a bleeding woman obstacle course
It was very crowded around Jesus, and I’m sure this woman had to do a lot of bobbing and weaving to get to Jesus. What better way to simulate that than with an obstacle course?
So, the kids hopped, and climbed, and wove around objects to successfully reach Jesus and be healed. YEAH for healing! We may have repeated this a few times so everyone could make sure they were quite healed by Jesus. Then we put the chairs away much to their consternation.
Jesus raises Jairus’ daughter craft
This craft I got from Jesus without languages, I love her Bible crafts and her blog.
Our Bible craft would have worked better if I’d printed it on cardstock, but I did not, so our dioramas were a little floppy. The kids still enjoyed playing with it and making their own versions of the craft.
Batman’s even had a secret hide-out for her to stay in and weapons. Princess’ was very pink. Superman was not in a coloring mood, so his was rather scribble scrabble.
