SUNDAY APRIL 19TH
Discuss these questions together as a family:
Who did Joel meet today?
Was Jesus’ resurrection an illusion? (No, it was a miracle!)
As a family, read John 20:11-30 and ask your kids who Jesus appeared to in the Bible Story. Jesus appeared three times in this passage in John.
He first appeared to Mary Magdalene. He then appeared to the disciples, but Thomas was not there. A little while later He appeared to the disciples again, but this time Thomas was present. How do you think you would have felt if you were Thomas? Thomas sometimes gets a bad reputation for being someone who doubted Jesus. He’s often called ‘doubting Thomas.’ It is amazing how Jesus extended His grace to Thomas and showed him exactly what Thomas needed to believe. Jesus wanted Thomas to believe that He was alive!
Use the bible story picture to engage your child as you tell them the story to hear about how Jesus said Mary’s name. He wanted her to know He was alive.
