Editor’s Note: This curriculum is built on the Bible’s own promise-fulfillment pattern and is designed to be used in a Sunday School/Children’s Church format. The Sunday School lesson provides the Old Testament background for the Children’s Church lesson in the Gospel of John.
The goal of this week’s lesson is to help the children understand that Israel lived through the Passover because a lamb died in their place. In order to escape God’s judgment on Egypt, the blood of a sacrifice was required. This week’s lesson culminates in the Person of the Lord Jesus, the Lamb of God, who died so that sinners could live. In order to escape God’s judgment for sin, the blood of a perfect sacrifice is required.
Sunday school teachers should emphasize the first half of the main idea in an interactive way for 20 minutes, and explain the second half clearly without much interaction as a conclusion for 5 minutes. Children’s church teachers should explain the first half without much interaction for 5 minutes as an introduction and emphasize the second half in an interactive way for 20 minutes.
