Use these statements to connect each session of Bible Studies for Life: Kids to Christ as you teach your children each week.
Unit 1, Session 1: Rahab Helped the Israelites
By faith Rahab believed God would win the battle, and she asked the spies to keep her safe. When the Israelites attacked Jericho, Rahab and her family were safe and they joined God’s people. Jesus has won against sin and death. Everyone who trusts in Jesus is safe and becomes part of God’s family forever.
Unit 1, Session 2: Deborah Followed God’s Plan
Everything God does is for His glory and our good. (Psalm 115:3; Romans 8:28) God used Deborah, Barak, and Jael to help the people of Israel win battles against Canaan. God also uses people to help us and teach us about Jesus. God sent His Son, Jesus, to do what is very good for us: to save us from sin.
Unit 1, Session 3: Esther Helped Her People
God’s plan was to send the Messiah into the world through Abraham’s family. Haman’s evil plan might have stopped God, but God was in control. God had a plan for Esther to rescue His people. By saving the Jews, God made the way for His Son, Jesus, to come into the world.
Unit 1, Session 4: A Woman Obeyed
God provided everything the woman, Elijah, and her son needed, and God has provided everything we could possibly need. He gave us the greatest gift—His own Son. Jesus gave everything He had—even His very own life—to save us from sin. Because of Jesus, we can be kind and giving to others.
Unit 2, Session 1: The First Family
God created people in His own image. Adam was like God in some ways, but he was not exactly like God. God sent His Son, Jesus, to show us exactly what God is like. (Colossians 1:15) Jesus is exactly like God because He is God. (Hebrews 1:3)
Unit 2, Session 2: Abram Solved a Quarrel
God had a very good plan for Abraham and his family. The plan was also for all the people who would be part of Abraham’s family. Many years later, a baby boy named Jesus was born into Abraham’s family. Jesus was God’s plan to save people from sin and fix their relationship with God.
Unit 2, Session 3: Moses Told Parents to Teach Children
Moses shared that families can learn about God from one another and should love, respect, and help one another. Families should help one another know about Jesus. Jesus delivered God’s people from captivity to sin.
Unit 2, Session 4: Ruth Helped Her Family
Boaz helped his close relatives. Boaz was a family redeemer. He bought back what his relatives lost. Jesus is our Redeemer. He bought our salvation from sin by dying on the cross.
Unit 2, Session 5: God’s Plan for Abraham and Sarah
God kept His promise to Abraham by giving him a son. God kept His promise to the world by giving us His Son. Jesus fulfilled God’s promise to Abraham, and He is the hope of the world for salvation and redemption.
Unit 3, Session 1: The People Crossed the Red Sea
Moses led God’s people out of Egypt, and God helped them get away by crossing the Red Sea. Moses was a great leader, but the Bible says that Jesus is greater than Moses. Jesus leads people away from sin so they can live with God forever.
Unit 3, Session 2: God Sent Jonah
God told Jonah to go to his enemies and tell them to stop sinning. Jonah did not want to go. Later, God sent His own Son, Jesus, to tell His enemies to stop sinning. Unlike Jonah, Jesus wanted to obey God. He died on the cross to save us from sin.
Unit 3, Session 3: God Protected Daniel
Daniel chose to obey God no matter what, and God blessed Daniel. In a greater way, Jesus always did what God wanted Him to do. Jesus never sinned, but He came to earth to rescue sinners. God forgives and helps everyone who trusts in Jesus.
Unit 3, Session 4: David and Goliath
David did not look like someone who could beat a giant. But David trusted God, and God gave David power. Jesus did not look like someone who could save people either. But when Jesus died and came back to life, He showed His power to rescue people from sin.
