Unit 1, Session 1: Angels Spoke to Mary and Joseph

Jesus was born! This was very good news! Jesus was not like other babies. Jesus is God’s Son. God sent Jesus to earth from heaven. Jesus came into the world to save people from their sins and to be their King.

Unit 2, Session 2: The Israelites Left Egypt
At Passover, God kept His people safe. 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 2, Session 3: God Provided for the People
When God’s people were hungry and thirsty, God gave them food and water. Later, God sent His Son, Jesus. Jesus said, “I am the bread of life” (John 6:35). Bread and water gives people life for a little while, but Jesus gives people life forever!
Unit 2, Session 4: The Tabernacle Was Built
God told the people of Israel to build a tabernacle, which was a place to meet together and worship God. As part of His plan to save people from sin, God sent Jesus to earth to meet with us. Now, we don’t have to go somewhere specific to worship. Because of Jesus, we can meet with God anywhere!

Unit 3, Session 3: A Widow Helped Elijah
God promised to keep His people safe and give them a home. God always keeps His promises. Jesus died on the cross for our sin so we can have a home in heaven. When we trust in Jesus, we will be with God forever.
Unit 3, Session 4: 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.
