Jesus at a synagogue in Nazareth

Lesson: Jesus ushers in God's favour

1. Game: Set the Captives Free
We played a game that involved people in prison and blindfolded, and others trying to get past the guards to tag them free. But it took a bit longer than expected. So would suggest a simpler game, like Blind Man's Buff.

2. Story:
  • Tell the story of Jesus speaking at the synagogue in Nazareth based on Luke 4:16-30.

Jesus tempted in the wilderness

Lesson: Jesus Victorious in Temptation 

1.    Story:
Tell the story of Jesus' temptation based on Luke 4:1-13.
  • Last week, what did we learn about Jesus? (He was baptised by John)
  • After being baptised, Jesus was filled with Holy Spirit and was led to the desert.
  • He prayed in the desert and didn’t eat anything for 40 days.
  • There, the devil decided to tempt Him. The devil wanted Jesus to trust His own strength and abilities rather than trust God.
