In the 15th year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, the word of God came to John while he was living in the desert.

CHILDREN'S STORY

 

God was unhappy with King Ahab of Israel. Ahab was evil and did a lot of bad things, one of which was marrying Jezebel, a pagan who got the king to worship the false god Baal. 

 

So the Lord sent his prophet, Elijah, to give Ahab a warning. 

 

God said that no dew or rain would fall on the land for a long time. The dew and rain would only come again when God instructed Elijah to say so. 

 

After Elijah delivered God’s message, God told him to go into hiding.

CHILDREN’S STORY: 
One day, Jesus was teaching people in a synagogue on the Sabbath. 

 

Among the people in the crowd was a woman who was completely bent over. She had been forced into this awkward and painful position by a spirit, and she had been suffering for 18 long years. 

 

Jesus looked up and noticed her. 

 

“Woman,” he called out, “you are set free of your infirmity.” 

 

Jesus laid his hands on the woman, and she was cured immediately. The woman stood up straight and began to glorify God.

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.

After the man left, the first servant immediately traded his talents and made five more.

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.
