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: Isaac Kept Peace
Isaac chose to keep peace because he knew that God was with him. Jesus makes peace between God and man. Jesus took the punishment we deserve for our sin. He paid our debt so that we can be forgiven and welcomed by God.
Unit 1, Session 2: King Saul’s Choice
King Saul offered a sacrifice that only the priest was allowed to give; he disobeyed God. God rejected Saul as king, but He had a plan to send His Son, Jesus. King Jesus never disobeyed God, and He gave His life as the perfect sacrifice for us.
Unit 1, Session 3: (B-2) Baby Moses; (3s-K) Esther Helped Her People
B-2: God kept baby Moses safe so that one day, when Moses was a grown up, he could save God’s people from slavery. Moses’ story points to an even bigger plan to save God’s people from sin. God sent His Son, Jesus, to take the punishment we deserve for our sin. When we trust in Jesus, God forgives our sin and gives us eternal life.
3-K: Haman had an evil plan to kill the Jews, but God was in control. God used Esther in His plan to rescue His people. When Jesus came to earth, His enemies killed Him. But Jesus did not stay dead. After Jesus died on the cross, He rose from the dead. Jesus has power over evil.
Unit 1, Session 4: Daniel Chose to Obey God
Daniel and his friends wanted to obey God, and God helped them. 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 2, Session 1: Jesus Healed Ten Lepers
Jesus did miracles to help people believe that He is the Son of God. Jesus has power over everything, and anyone who believes in Him will live with Him forever.
Unit 2, Session 2: Jesus Rode into Jerusalem
The people were happy to see Jesus. They knew He was their King. Jesus came riding on a donkey, just as the prophet Zechariah said He would. (Zechariah 9:9) One day, Jesus will come back, riding on a white horse as King over everything. (Revelation 19:11)
Unit 2, Session 3: Jesus Is Alive!
Jesus died on the cross for our sins, but He rose from the dead and is alive! God raised Jesus from the dead to be the King over everything. Jesus rescues us from sin and promises that we will live forever with Him.
Unit 2, Session 4: (B-PK) Jesus and the Fishermen; (K) Jesus Returned to Heaven
B-PK: The disciples were afraid when Jesus was arrested. They left Him and even denied Him, but Jesus still wanted to use them in God’s plan. Jesus is the Lord who forgives us and makes things right again.
K: Jesus left earth and returned to heaven, but He did not leave us alone. Jesus promised to send the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit helps us do God’s work on earth while we wait for Jesus to come back and make everything new.
Unit 3, Session 1: Peter Told About Jesus
God sent the Holy Spirit just as He promised. Now Peter and the rest of Jesus’ friends had everything they needed to share about Jesus! God gives the Holy Spirit to those of us who trust in Jesus. The Holy Spirit helps us do God’s work and changes us to be more like Jesus.
Unit 3, Session 2: Peter and John Helped a Lame Man
After Jesus went back to heaven, the Holy Spirit gave Jesus’ followers power to begin working. With the power of Jesus’ name, Peter healed a man who could not walk. The religious leaders could not stop Jesus’ followers from telling people the good news about Jesus.
Unit 3, Session 3: Peter Preached to Cornelius
God used a vision to show Peter that the good news about Jesus is for everyone. God wants believers to tell everyone the good news about Jesus no matter who they are or what they do. Jesus is the Lord of all.
Unit 3, Session 4: People Prayed for Peter
God heard the prayers of the people. He had a plan for Peter, and He helped him escape from prison. Peter knew he might die because he believed in Jesus, but he wanted to share the good news about Jesus no matter what.
Unit 3, Session 5: Peter Wrote Letters
Some people wanted to hurt Christians for believing in Jesus. Peter wrote letters explaining that God is patient, and He wants people to trust in Jesus even when they are hurting.
