1 Jesus Was Born Session 1 Lessons for the Leader Consider the following about Isaiah: ttthe ministry of Isaiah lasted about 40 years and covered the reign of four kings (Isaiah 1:1). ttisaiah delivered messages full of commands and promises. ttgod revealed to Isaiah an amazing prophetic sign a very special child would be born to a virgin. The child's name would be Immanuel, meaning "God with us." A baby born to a virgin a human impossibility was God's plan to prove the plan was God's plan. Read Isaiah 6. This chapter describes God's call to Isaiah and the mission he was to do. Read Isaiah 7. King Ahaz (AY haz) was an evil king of Judah. He ruled for 16 years, during which he maintained idolatrous practices (2 Kings 16). He refused the words of the prophets. What did God say to Ahaz? Why would Ahaz not ask for a sign from God? Although Ahaz would not ask for a sign, God still provided it. Reread verse 14. How might this verse give hope to the people of Israel? How does it give hope to people today? Read Isaiah 9:6-7. Does Handel's "Hallelujah Chorus" ring through your head? This passage inspires praise and excitement for what God has done and what He has yet to do. Read Isaiah 11:1-5. By the time of Jesus' birth, the house of David had returned to its humble roots; neither Joseph nor Mary came from prominent homes. From these obscure beginnings, this tender new branch of Jesse's family (David's father) would grow to become more powerful than King David himself. Help the preschoolers discover people in the Old Testament told that Jesus would be born. What do these symbols mean?

Isaiah Told About Jesus Based on Isaiah 1:1; 6:1,8; 7:14; 9:6-7; 11:1-5 Isaiah [page 1] lived near the town of Jerusalem, in the country of Judah [page 2]. God asked, "Whom will I send to tell people My message (what God wants people to know)?" Isaiah said, "Send me, God. I will go" [page 3]. Isaiah became a prophet, "someone who tells people what God wants them to know." All along God had a plan. God chose Isaiah to tell the people some wonderful news. Isaiah wrote what God told him to write [page 4]. Isaiah said that a young woman would have a special baby boy. The special baby would be God's Son. The baby would be called Immanuel (ih AN yoo el).

Worship Through Dramatic Play Prepare a Time Capsule Review: "God told Isaiah about His plan for Jesus' birth a long time before it happened. Even though Isaiah wrote about Jesus' birth a long time ago, we can read about it in the Bible [display]. The Bible is like a time capsule. A time capsule is 'a sealed container saving things of today (cell phone, CD, DVD, etc.) for people to look at in the future.' The Bible has stories that happened a long time ago that we can read and learn about today. Let's put together a time capsule for our class." Distribute construction paper, crayons, and markers.

Repeat the same process for the life application statement. Form and name two teams (Teams 1 and 2). State: "Team 2, stay seated. Team 1, line up at the first word of our Bible verse.

Teacher Tips Photocopy "Chinese Numbers" for children to take home. Provide books and/or pictures of China. Insert your mission emphasis if different. Worship Through Exploration and Discovery Learn Facts About Lottie Moon Say: "Isaiah was a prophet. Isaiah told people about Jesus' birth before Jesus was born. Missionaries (people who go and tell people about God and Jesus) long ago told people about Jesus' birth and that Jesus loves them. Missionaries today do the same thing. Charlotte Moon, nicknamed Lottie, was a missionary from Virginia. Virginia is a state on the east coast of America [point to east coast on globe]. Lottie went to the country of China over 100 years ago to tell Chinese people about Jesus." Point to China on a globe and show how far it is from where you live. Show the distance between Virginia and China on the globe. State: "Lottie learned a new language, wore different clothes, ate different foods, and made new friends. Lottie did all of this because she wanted the Chinese people to know that Jesus loved them." Display the Chinese numbers and practice counting aloud to 10. Share: "Lottie baked cookies to share with her neighbors as she told them about Jesus. She earned a new nickname in China Cookie Lady." Invite children to dress up and pretend to be in China.
