Peter's Confession

It has been a while since I posted a lesson plan. We've been out of town, had out of town company, had parents in the hospital. It's just been busy. My Bible class is suffering because of it. I need to keep posting the lesson plans so I stay on track. I didn't realize how much I benefit from putting these on my blog.

During all of the turmoil around here, we had a change of quarters in the Bible class. That has put a lot of pressure on me to get everything ready. I'm about half way there and we are already 3 weeks into the quarter.

This quarter we are talking about the 2nd half of Jesus' life. Everything seems to move much faster, or maybe it's just that there is a whole lot more written about the last part. We've talked about Jesus sending the 12 out and their return, Jesus feeding the 5000 and Jesus Walking on the water. Tonight's lesson will be about Peter's confession. This is such a misunderstood discussion that Jesus and Peter had. We will be emphasizing the true meaning of Peter's confession and false doctrines that have sprung from it.

During this quarter, the kids will be memorizing the following:

Jesus instituting the Lord's Supper in Matthew 26:26-30
The Word is God from John 1:1-5
Jesus The Good Shepherd John 10:14-18
Psalms 23
Ask, Seek, Knock Matthew 7:9-11
The rest of what's in each of the New Testament books

My Lesson Plan:

Review what we've studied so far.

Today's lesson: Peter's Confession I read the scripture from the Bible while the kids follow along in theirs. If the event happens in more than one gospel, we read all of them. We then discuss it as necessary.

Review the New Testament cards on the wall. Add 2 Timothy

Let them spend time in the stations.
