Elementary, December 26: Mary and Joseph Flee to Egypt

Hi Journey Kids parents!

God once rescued Israel out of their slavery in Egypt. It makes sense that Jesus would spend time in Egypt – as He would lead us out of our slavery to sin. Did you know Jesus fulfilled more than three hundred Old Testament prophecies just in His first coming? He’ll fulfill even more when He comes again. But, goodness. Three hundred. That’s not an accident. Jesus is God. We can trust that He is who He says He is.

When it’s time to begin, start your morning of family worship by watching the short lesson video with your kids. [You can access the videos here.] It’s a great way to engage spiritually with your family.

Here is a snapshot of the lesson details for this week:

Bible Story: Mary and Joseph Flee to Egypt

Big Idea: Jesus fulfills the prophecies of the Old Testament, so we can trust that He is Lord.

Memory Verse: “When the name of Jesus is spoken, everyone’s knee will bow to worship him… Everyone’s mouth will say that Jesus Christ is Lord.” Philippians 2:10-11 (NIrV)

After the video lesson and music, you can use the attached materials to help take your family deeper into the lesson:

I don’t know if you wrestle with the identity of Jesus. He made a lot of audacious claims. But He backed them up by fulfilling predictions made about Him centuries before (and we actually have evidence that those predications were made centuries before). You can trust Him. He is who he says He is.
