3 Creation Genesis 1; 2:1-3, 15-18, 21-23, 25; 3:8, 23 (NLT) In the beginning there was only God. God created the world in six days. During those six days He created everything. He simply spoke and created the sun, moon, stars, land, plants, and animals. God also created people. He patterned them after Himself. The first man was Adam. God put Adam in a beautiful garden and he had everything he wanted to eat. God gave Adam one command, not to eat of the tree in the middle of the garden, because if he did, then he would die. Then God decided that man should not be alone. So He caused Adam to fall asleep. God took one of Adam s ribs to make the first woman, Eve. Adam was very excited because Eve had flesh and bones just like he did! And God blessed Adam and Eve. He told them to have many children, and He made them masters over all the animals in the garden. Adam and Eve walked closely with God. They had a right relationship with Him. Adam and Eve wore no clothes and they were not ashamed. And then God looked at all of His creation and saw that it was good. So on the seventh day He rested because He had finished creating the world. Explanation of the Drawing: In the drawing there is a moon, sun, and stars. The peacocks represent all the living things that God created. The flowers and the vines represent all the plants God made.

5 Fall of Man Genesis 2:4-3:24 (NLT) God placed the first man and woman, Adam and Eve, in a garden. God provided everything they needed to live. There were beautiful trees that produced delicious fruit. There was a tree in the middle of the garden, and God told them not to eat the fruit from that tree. If they ate that fruit they would die. Adam and Eve wore no clothes and they were not ashamed. One day as Eve was walking in the garden a snake came to her and asked, Did God tell you not to eat from any tree in the garden? Eve said, No, He said not to eat from the tree in the middle of the garden. The snake told her, If you eat from this tree then you will be like God. Eve looked at the fruit and it looked really good to her, so she ate it and then gave some to her husband Adam. After they ate the fruit they felt very ashamed and realized that they had no clothes on. So they covered themselves with leaves. When Adam and Eve heard God walking through the garden they hid. God called for them saying, Where are you? When the man and woman came out, they said to God, We were afraid because we have no clothes on. God asked them, Who told you that you have no clothes on? Did you eat the fruit I told you not to? Adam told God that Eve had given him the fruit. Then Eve told God that the snake had lied to her. So God punished Adam and Eve. And He also punished the snake. He made Adam and Eve clothing out of animal skins. And then God sent Adam and Eve out of the garden. Because of their disobedience, Adam and Eve were separated from God. They were never allowed into the garden again. Explanation of the Drawing: On the palm of a hand is a fruit surrounded by a vine. On each side of that vine is a heart. One heart represents God and the other heart represents man. When the man and woman sinned, they were separated from God. The vine and the fruit are a symbol of that separation. Story Questions: 1. What did you learn about God? 2. What did you learn about man? 3. What was your favorite part about the story? 4.

7 Cain and Abel Genesis 4:1-16 (NLT) After God sent Adam and Eve out of the garden, they had two sons, Cain and Abel. Cain was a farmer, and Abel was a shepherd. Cain brought some of the fruit as an offering to God, but Abel brought the best of his flock as an offering to God. God liked Abel s offering but was not happy with Cain s offering. Because of this Cain became very angry. God asked Cain, Why do you look so angry and upset? God cautioned him to do the right thing. He told Cain that if he didn t do the right thing, his anger would lead him to sin. Cain did not listen to God and he became even angrier. Cain led his brother, Abel, out into a field and killed him. After Cain killed his brother, God asked him, Where is your brother? Cain lied to God, and said, How should I know? Then God became very angry with Cain, saying, What have you done! I know what you have done to your brother. God punished Cain, saying that he would no longer have a good harvest in his fields and that he would be homeless on the earth. Cain knew this punishment was more than he could take, and he said, Anyone who sees me will kill me. So God put a mark of protection on Cain so that anyone who saw him would not kill him. Because of Cain s sin he was separated from the presence of God. Explanation of the Drawing: In this drawing there are four shapes in the middle of the hand that tell the story. These four shapes are distinct. In one is a fruit. This is a reminder that Cain worked the soil. In the next shape is a peacock. This is a reminder that Abel took care of the animals. In the next shape are small leaves. This is a reminder of Cain bringing only his fruit as an offering. And the next shape you see a more decorative beautiful flower, this is a reminder that Abel gave the best of his animals to God. Story Questions: 1. What did you learn about God? 2. What did you learn about man? 3. What was your favorite part? 4. What should you obey? 5. Do you have any questions about the story? 6. Who will you tell?

9 Noah s Ark Genesis 6:1, 5-21; 7:1-23; 8:1-21; 9:7, (NLT) People continued to fill the earth, but their thoughts were completely evil. God was sad that He had made them. He said, I will destroy all the people and animals that I have made by sending a flood. However Noah was a man who followed God, and God was pleased with Noah. God told Noah to build a boat, so that his family would be saved from the flood. God told Noah exactly how He wanted the boat to be built. When the boat was finished, God told Noah to take his family and two (male and female) of every kind of animal on the boat, and enough food for the animals and Noah s family. Then God sent the flood. For many days water filled the earth, and all of the living things left on the earth died. But Noah and his family survived and God sent the wind to dry the land. After some time, Noah sent a dove out of the boat, and when it returned it had an olive branch in its beak. Because of this Noah knew that the land was dry enough for him and his family to leave the boat. As they stood on dry ground Noah gave an offering to God. God was pleased with Noah s offering and He promised to never again destroy the earth with a flood. God put a rainbow in the sky as a reminder of His promise to Noah and his descendants. God blessed Noah and his family. He told them to have many children and fill the earth with people. Explanation of the Drawing: The rainbow is a reminder of God s promise to not flood the earth again. The peacock is a reminder of the dove that Noah sent out looking for land. Just below the peacock s beak is a branch. This is a reminder of the olive branch that the peacock brought back to Noah after the flood. Story Questions: 1. What did you learn about God? 2.

11 God s Promise to Abraham Genesis 12:1-7; 15:1, 4-6; 21:1-5; Genesis 22:1-19; 1 Kings 5:7 (NLT) Even though the people were separated from God, He still wanted a relationship with them. This is a story about Abraham and the promise God made to him. God told Abraham to leave his country, his people, and his father s household to go to a place that He would show him. God promised to make Abraham a great nation with its own country. He also promised that all peoples would be blessed through him. Abraham obeyed God and left. A while later, God spoke to Abraham in a vision, saying, Your descendants will be as many as the stars. Even though Abraham and his wife were old and had not been able to have any children, Abraham believed God. Because of his belief, he had a right relationship with God. God did carry out the promise He made to Abraham. When Abraham was 100 years old his wife gave birth to a boy. After the boy had gotten older, God told Abraham to take his son to a mountain and give him as a sacrifice. So Abraham obeyed God, and took his son to the mountain. When Abraham s son saw his father preparing for the sacrifice, he asked, Where is the goat we will sacrifice? Abraham told his son, God will provide. Then just as Abraham was about to kill his son, an angel said, Stop! Do not kill the boy! Now I know you really obey God because you were willing to give your son as a sacrifice. Then Abraham looked and saw a goat nearby. Abraham and his son offered the goat as a sacrifice to God. And God kept his promise to Abraham, giving him many children. And just as God promised, Abraham s children grew to be a great nation. Explanation of the Drawing: In the fingers there are numerous stars. This is a reminder of God saying to Abraham, Your descendants will be as numerous as the stars in the sky. There is a rainbow in the hand; this represents God s promise to Abraham and the fulfillment of his promise when his son was born. Story Questions: 1. What did you learn about God? 2.

13 Moses Exodus 1:8-14; 3:1-12:50; Joshua 1:1-5 (NLT) Abraham s descendants did become a great nation just as God had promised. But later they were enslaved in a foreign country and treated badly. God did not forget about His promise to His people. God used a descendant of Abraham to bring His people out of slavery. His name was Moses and this is his story. One day Moses was watching his sheep when he saw a burning bush. God called Moses from the bush, and told him, Moses, I am the God of Abraham. I have heard the cries of my people in slavery and I want you to go and rescue them. God told Moses that his stick that would turn into a snake on command. God did this to show the people that He had appeared to Moses. Moses told God that he was not very good at speaking in front of people and asked him to send someone else. God told Moses to go and told him to take his brother with him to help. So Moses and his brother left to plead with the King for the freedom of Abraham s descendants. But the King was very stubborn and would not let the people leave, even though he saw Moses stick turn into a snake. Because the King would not let the people go, God sent nine plagues on the land. But the King would not change his mind. So God sent one more plague to kill all the firstborn sons in the land. Before this plague, God told his people to kill a perfect lamb and put the blood on the doorframes of their houses. Abraham s descendants obeyed and none of their sons died. After this, the King released Abraham s descendants from slavery, and they left the King s land. Many years later God brought them to a new land that He had promised to them. Explanation of the Drawing: In the middle of the drawing, there is a burning bush. This bush has 10 flames around it symbolizing the 10 plagues God sent on the land. Above that bush is a rainbow; this is a reminder of God s promise to bring the people out of slavery. Story Questions: 1. What did you learn about God from the story? 2.

16 Promise Story Joshua 1:1-5; Joshua 24:2-28; Isaiah 1:2; 7:14; 49:6, 53; Jeremiah God did keep His promise to Abraham s descendants, and He brought them to the land He had promised them. The people continued disobeying God, and they remained separated from God. He sent many messengers to His people. One of them was Isaiah. Isaiah had a special message of hope for the people. He told them, God will send a Savior, and He will be born to a woman who has never been with a man. Some will treat Him badly. He will suffer and carry our burdens and sorrows. He will be whipped and beaten to bring us peace. We are all kind of like sheep, aren t we? Sheep will wander off the path, and we also wander away from God s path. We sin and disobey God. But God is putting all of our sins onto the Savior. The Savior will be like a lamb, being led to a butcher. He will be killed for our sins. But then, He will rise from the dead. Because of this, many people will have a restored relationship with God. This is why God calls Him a light to the nations. This is the message of hope Isaiah gave to the people and from that time on, they waited eagerly for the Promised Savior. Explanation of the Drawing: The rainbow in the hand represents God s promise to all mankind that One would come to take on all of our wrongs. The sun is a reminder that after the Promised Savior died He would come to life again, seeing the light of day. The sun is also a reminder that the Savior is a light to the nations. The rainbow is at the bottom of the design and everything on top of it symbolizes the Promised Savior carrying our burdens. Story Questions: 1. What did you learn about God in the story? 2.

18 The Birth Of Jesus Luke 2:1-7; 2:25-32; Matthew 2:1-11; Matthew 1:21; Luke 1:26-32; Matthew 1:22 This is the story of how the Promised Savior came into the world Mary and Joseph were engaged. Before they got married, an angel came to Mary and told her she would become pregnant through the power of God s Spirit. He told Mary that she was to name Him Jesus. He would be great and be called the Son of the Most High God. The angel also said that Jesus would save people from their sins. All of this happened just the way God said through the prophet Isaiah. Before the baby was born, the King told everyone to return to their hometowns to be registered. Joseph and Mary had to travel to Bethlehem. When they arrived there, they had to stay in a stable because the city was full of travelers. So Mary gave birth to Jesus in a stable. A little while later, there were a group of wise men who saw a bright star in the sky. They followed the star, knowing that it would lead to the place where Jesus was. When they arrived, they saw Jesus and worshipped Him. Several days later, Mary and Joseph took Him to a place of worship to dedicate Him to God. When they arrived at the temple, a man named Simeon was there. God had told Simeon that he would not die until he saw the Promised Savior. When Simeon saw Jesus, he was excited, saying, He will be a light to the nations and because of Him the people will know God! Explanation of the Drawing: There is a star at the top of one finger that is a reminder of God putting a star in the sky to lead men to the place of Jesus birth. The sun at the bottom of the drawing is a reminder of Simeon calling Jesus a light to the nations. Story Questions: 1. What did you learn about God in the story? 2.

20 Paralyzed Man Mark 2:1-12, Luke 5:17-26 One day, Jesus was in a house teaching people about God. The house was completely full. Four men had heard that Jesus was teaching in this house. They brought their friend to Him. He was on a mat and could not walk, but there was not any room for them to bring the man in the front door. So they went to the roof, made a hole, and lowered him down in front of Jesus. When Jesus saw the man and his friends and that they believed Him, He said, Your sins are forgiven. Many religious teachers were in the house and thought, He can t do that! Only God can forgive sins. Jesus knew what they were thinking and said, What is easier: to say, Your sin is forgiven, or to say, Get up and walk? Then Jesus said, I want you to know that I can forgive sins. Then He told the man to get up, take his mat, and go home. Immediately the man stood up, and took his mat, and went home. The people were amazed, saying, We have never seen anything like this! Explanation of the Drawing: On the wrist there is a square design; this is a reminder of the mat that the paralyzed man was brought to Jesus on. Under the mat design there are footprints that are a reminder that after Jesus healed the man he got up, took his mat and walked. Story Questions: 1. What did you learn about Jesus from the story? 2.

22 Demon Possessed Man Mark 5:1-20 One day as Jesus was stepping out of a boat a man with an evil spirit saw Him from a distance. He was known for cutting himself with rocks and screaming through the night. When they tied him up, he would break the chains they tied him with. No one could control him. When the man approached Jesus, he fell at His feet. Jesus said to the evil spirit, Come out of that man! After this, the evil spirit said, Why are You bothering me, Son of the Most High God? Promise You will not torture me! Then Jesus asked the evil spirit, What is your name? He answered Jesus, Army, because there are many of us inside this man. The evil spirit begged Jesus not to send them far away, but to allow them to go into a herd of animals nearby. So Jesus gave them permission. When the evil spirits went into the animals, all the animals ran down the hillside, into the water, and drowned. The men watching over the herd of animals saw what had happened and ran to tell many people in the area. Soon there was a crowd of people who had come to see what had happened. The people saw the man who used to have an evil spirit sitting down and in his right mind. But they were still afraid and asked Jesus to leave. As Jesus was stepping into the boat to leave, the man came to Jesus and asked Him, Can I go with you? But Jesus told the man to go home and tell others what God has done for you! So the man went to ten towns in the region telling about Jesus, and everyone was amazed. Explanation of the Drawing: On the bottom side of the hand there is a small pile of rocks. That is a reminder of how the man would cut himself with stones. Then you see two lines. One line does not have a break in it and the other does have a break in it. The one with the break is a reminder of the condition the man was in before he met Jesus. He had a problem no one could control or fix. These spirits bound him. But after he met Jesus he was set free; Jesus set him free from the evil spirits. The cross is a reminder of this. Then you will see a mango design through the fingers. There are ten of them that are a reminder of the ten towns the man went to, to tell his story. Story Questions: 1. What did you learn about Jesus in the story? 2.

24 Mark 5:24-34 (NLT) The Bleeding Woman There was a woman who had been sick for twelve years. She had spent all her money on doctors, but instead of getting better, she got worse. She thought, "If only I could touch the edge of Jesus' clothes, then I would be healed." One day Jesus was walking through a crowd and the woman came up and touched the edge of His clothes. Instantly she was healed. Jesus stopped and asked, "Who touched me?" because He had felt His power being used. His followers told Him, "Look at all these people; how can you ask who touched you?" The woman saw that she could not hide, so she came forward and told Jesus what had happened. Jesus told her, "Your faith has healed you; go in peace." Explanation of the Drawing: In the shape in the middle of the drawing there is a flower. This flower represents the woman. Below the flower there is a stem with twelve thorns. The twelve thorns represent the twelve years the woman was sick. Above the flower is a cross. The cross is a reminder of Jesus.

26 Matthew 14:13-21; John 6:1-15 The Feeding of the Five Thousand Jesus and His disciples were going to a quiet place to rest. But a crowd of more than 5,000 people saw Him and followed Him. When Jesus saw the people, He had compassion on them. He healed the sick. As the day went on, one of Jesus closest followers came to Him and said, We need to send these people home so they can eat. Jesus said, You give them something to eat. The follower said, We only have two fish and five loaves of bread. So Jesus took the bread and fish and told all the people to sit down. He thanked God for the bread and fish and gave it to all the people. The people ate until they were full, and Jesus closest followers picked up 12 baskets of bread and fish that were left over. Explanation of the Drawing: There are two fish in the drawing. Those are a reminder of the fish Jesus multiplied to feed the people.

28 The Narrow Road and The Wide Road You can enter God s Kingdom only through the narrow gate. The highway to hell is broad, and its gate is wide for the many who choose that way. But the gateway to life is very narrow and the road is difficult, and only a few ever find it. Matthew 7:13-14 (NLT) I am the way, the truth, and the life!" Jesus answered. Without me, no one can go to the Father. John 14:6 (CEV) Over the last few months you have heard many stories. You have heard how we are far from God because of our sin. You have heard about Jesus and how He died for all the wrong things we have done. Jesus says, I am the way, the truth and the life. I am the way to God. He also says that there are two ways. One way leads to life and the other way leads to death. Following Jesus means that you are on the path that leads to life, the path that leads to a right relationship with God. Jesus says that if you ask God to forgive your sin and follow Him alone, then you will have life. There is only one way to God, and that is Jesus. Explanation of the Drawing: There are two roads that both start on the left side of the hand. One way is narrower than the other. The way that is narrow has a flower at the end of it, and the other road leads down to the bottom right side of the hand. This way is wider than the other. The flower at the end of the narrow way depicts life. Story Questions: 1. What did you learn from this story? 2. What should you obey from the story? 3. Do you want to follow Jesus?

30 Death and Resurrection Luke 18:35-19:9; John 10:28-39; Matthew 26:47-56; Matthew 27:26-56; Matthew 27:57-61; Luke 24:1-7; Luke 24:36-37; Luke 24:44-47 During His time on earth Jesus went about healing people and forgiving their sin. There were some religious leaders and teachers who became angry with Jesus because He said that He and God were the same. They began to look for a way to kill Him. They were finally able to arrest Him and have Him killed. Jesus was whipped and beaten and put to death on a wooden cross. His hands and feet were nailed on two pieces of wood and He hung there until He died. After He died, His body was put in a cave and closed with a large rock. Three days later, some women came to the cave and saw that the rock had been moved and His body was not there. Then two men dressed in white appeared to them and said, Why are you looking in this empty cave? Jesus has risen from the dead just like it was foretold. Later when the followers had gathered talking about what all had happened, suddenly Jesus was among them. They were afraid and thought that they had seen a ghost. Jesus said, Peace be with you! Then Jesus told them that all of this happened to fulfill God s plan that the Promised Savior would suffer and die and rise from the dead. He told them, Wait here for me to send you God s Spirit. When it comes, then go and tell everyone. Teach them to obey what I have taught you. Have everyone who believes in me go through a symbolic washing of water to show that they have turned away from the wrong things they have done and turned to God. Explanation of the Drawings: In the middle of the hand there is a shape, which has two important symbols to remember this story. The first one is in the shape of a cross. This is a reminder of the death of Jesus. Above it is a flower. This flower is a reminder that Jesus came to life after three days. Story Questions: 1. What did you learn about Jesus in the story? 2.

32 Creation to Christ Genesis 1:1-27; Genesis 2:15; Genesis 3; Genesis 6:1; Genesis 6:9-22; Genesis 8; Genesis 9:12-17; Genesis 12:2-4; Genesis 15:4-6; Genesis 21:1-5; Exodus 1:6-7; Judges 2:11; Judges 3:12; Isaiah 1:2; Isaiah 53:4-6; Isaiah 53:10-12; Isaiah 7:14; Isaiah 49:6; Matthew 2:1-12; Mark 1:29-34; John 10:28-39; John 8:12; Matthew 27:35-28:10; Luke 24:40-48; Romans 3:22-25; Romans 6:23; Romans 10:9-10 (NLT) God created the whole earth, and when He did, He created the first man and woman. The first man and woman lived in a beautiful garden. God gave them one command, not to eat the fruit from the tree in the middle of the garden. But they didn t listen to God and they ate the fruit. And because they were disobedient they were separated from God. And then they had children, and their children had children, and their children had children. They were all separated from God. When God looked down on the earth, He saw all the evil in the hearts of the people. So He decided to destroy the whole earth with a flood. But there was one man named Noah. Noah had a right and good relationship with God. God told Noah to build a boat, so that his family would not die in the flood. Noah obeyed God. God sent the flood and water covered the land. When the land finally dried, God made a promise to Noah, and to all people after Noah, that He would never destroy the earth with a flood again. And the sign of that promise was a rainbow. Many years later, there was a man named Abraham. Abraham and his wife had no children and they were very old. But God said to Abraham, I am going to give you many children and I am going to bless the whole world through your family. So Abraham believed God and God considered him to be in a right relationship with Him because of his trust. God kept His promise and gave Abraham a son. God made a huge people group out of Abraham s descendants. But the people were still separated from God. So God gave a message to a man named Isaiah. This message was about a Promised Savior who would come and take on all of our wrongs. He would be born to a woman who had never been with a man. He would take on all of our wrongs although He had done nothing wrong. He would die as the punishment for our wrongs, but He would come back to life again. Because of what the Promised Savior does, we will be restored to a right relationship with God. The Promised Savior was called a light to all nations. Well, everything happened just the way God said it would. Jesus was born and God put a star in the sky to bring men to the place of His birth. Jesus was perfect and He performed many miracles that proved He was Savior. He said, I am the light of the world, and whoever follows Me is no longer in darkness. Many people believed Jesus, but there were some who didn t. They were angry with Him because He said that He and God were the same. So they put Him to death; they hung Him on two pieces of wood in the shape of a cross. They put nails in His hands and feet, and He died. On the third day, Jesus came to life, just as it was foretold. The wrongs we do separate us from God. Jesus was the perfect sacrifice for all the wrong things we have done. But we can be made right with God by placing our faith in Jesus

33 Christ alone. If we ask forgiveness of our wrongs, declaring that Jesus is God, and believe that Jesus came to life after His death, then we can have a right relationship with God. This is true for everyone! Explanation of the Drawing: The apple at the bottom of the hand is the fruit Adam and Eve ate in the garden. The rainbow represents promise. The first promise in the story is the promise God made to Noah and to all people after to never destroy the earth with a flood again. It also represents the promise God made to Abraham and the promise to all people for a Savior. The flame in the drawing is a reminder of the Savior being called a light to all nations. The star is a reminder of the birth of Jesus. The cross is a reminder of the death of Jesus. The flower represents life. Jesus came to life after three days! Story Questions: 1. What did you learn about God in the story? 2. What do you think about Jesus after hearing the story? 3. What did you learn about man in the story? 4. What was your favorite part of the story? 5. What should you obey after hearing the story? 6. Do you have any questions about the story? 7. Do you want to follow Jesus? 8. Who will you tell?
