CHILDREN’S STORY: 

Jesus did a lot of traveling so he could speak to as many people as possible about God. 

 

One day, Jesus decided to send 72 of his followers ahead of him to the communities he planned to visit. 

 

“The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few; so ask the master of the harvest to send out laborers for his harvest,” he said as he split the men into pairs.

Jesus was traveling around Galilee with his apostles. At one point, he asked Peter, James and John to come with him up a high mountain. 

 

Once they were on the mountain, Jesus was suddenly changed. His clothes became a dazzling white, and Elijah and Moses appeared to speak with him. A cloud came and cast a shadow over everyone, and a voice could be heard saying, “This is my beloved Son. Listen to him.” 

 

Just as suddenly, the cloud, Elijah and Moses were gone. Jesus told them to say nothing of what they saw until the Son of Man rose from the dead.

CHILDREN’S STORY:

One day, Jesus told the apostles a parable to show the importance of watching for the coming of the Son of Man.

 

He told the story of a man who was going on a journey. Before he left, he put his three servants in charge of his possessions.

 

The man gave each servant money according to his ability. The first received five talents, the second received two talents and the third received one talent.
After the man left, the first servant immediately traded his talents and made five more.

CHILDREN’S STORY:
God was upset about the evil ways of King Ahab of Israel. Ahab had married the Sidonian princess Jezebel and began to worship her false god, Baal.

 

One day, God called on his prophet, Elijah, to tell Ahab that there would be no dew or rain in the land except at Elijah’s word.

 

Drought and famine spread through the land for three years. During this time, Elijah was in hiding and Jezebel put the other prophets of God to death.

 

In the third year, God told Elijah to return to Ahab and end the drought.

CHILDREN’S STORY:

Jesus traveled from village to village near his hometown to teach the people about God.

 

One day, he decided to send the apostles in pairs to preach in different places.

 

He gave his friends the authority to drive out unclean spirits and instructions on what they were to do.

 

For example, he told them the only thing they each could bring on the journey was a walking stick. They were not supposed to bring food, money, a sack or a second tunic.

CHILDREN'S STORY

 

People flocked to Jesus wherever he and the apostles went. Not only did the people want to hear Jesus preach, but many also hoped to be healed by him. 

 

One time, Jesus cured a man of his leprosy. He healed a centurion’s servant while visiting Capernaum. He forgave a paralyzed man’s sins, and the man could walk again. He even helped Peter’s mother-in-law, who was sick with a fever.

CHILDREN'S STORY

 

One day, as Zechariah the priest entered the sanctuary of the Lord to burn incense, the angel Gabriel appeared to him. 

 

“Your prayer has been heard,” Gabriel told Zechariah. “Your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you shall name him John.” 

 

Zechariah did not believe what he had heard. He and his wife were very old, and Elizabeth couldn’t have children. 

 

Gabriel did not appreciate Zechariah’s doubt.

CHILDREN’S STORY: 

Jesus and his apostles were traveling around Galilee. Wherever they went, Jesus would heal the sick and drive unclean spirits from people. 

 

One day, Jesus came home with his friends. As usual, a huge crowd gathered around him, and Jesus and the apostles couldn’t even eat a meal. 

 

When Jesus’ relatives heard that Jesus was home, they made plans to seize him because they were worried about him. 

 

“He is out of his mind,” they said.

CHILDREN'S STORY

 

One day, as Jesus was getting ready to go on a journey, a man rushed up to him and knelt down.

 

“Good teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?” he wanted to know.

 

Jesus studied the man for a few moments.

 

“You know the commandments,” Jesus replied, “’You shall not kill; you shall not commit adultery; you shall not steal; you shall not bear false witness; you shall not defraud; honor your father and your mother.’”

 

The man nodded his head in agreement.
