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 all life is given by God’s power. God demonstrated this reality in the Old Testament by powerfully sustaining the lives of a widow and her son during a famine. Then, after her son had died, Elijah demonstrated God’s power to give life by raising her son from the dead. This week’s lesson culminates in the Person of the Lord Jesus. As the God man, Jesus has the power to give physical life to people who have died. Yet even more significant is Jesus’ ability to give eternal life to all those who believe in Him.
