2 The Praise of all Creation 1 Shout praises to the LORD! Shout the LORD's praises in the highest heavens. 2 All of you angels, and all who serve him above, come and offer praise. 3 Sun and moon, and all of you bright stars, come and offer praise. 4 Highest heavens, and the water above the highest heavens, come and offer praise. RERC 0-01a Mystery of God 1of4 Psalm 148 P1

3 5 Let all things praise the name of the LORD, because they were created at his command. 6 He made them to last forever, and nothing can change what he has done. 7 All creatures on earth, you obey his commands, so come praise the LORD! 8 Sea monsters and the deep sea, fire and hail, snow and frost, and every stormy wind, come praise the LORD!

RERC 0-01a Mystery of God 3of4 Psalm 148 P1

8 RERC 0- 02a In the Image of God 4 Samuel did what the LORD told him and went to Bethlehem. The town leaders went to meet him, but they were terribly afraid and asked, "Is this a friendly visit?" 5 "Yes, it is!" Samuel answered. "I've come to offer a sacrifice to the LORD. Get yourselves ready to take part in the sacrifice and come with me." Samuel also invited Jesse and his sons to come to the sacrifice, and he got them ready to take part. 1of4 The Call of David 1 Samuel 16:4-13 P1

9 6 When Jesse and his sons arrived, Samuel noticed Jesse's oldest son, Eliab. "He has to be the one the LORD has chosen," Samuel said to himself. 7 But the LORD told him, "Samuel, don't think Eliab is the one just because he's tall and handsome. He isn't the one I've chosen. People judge others by what they look like, but I judge people by what is in their hearts." 8 Jesse told his son Abinadab to go over to Samuel, but Samuel said, "No, the LORD hasn't chosen him." RERC 0- 02a In the Image of God 2of4 The Call of David 1 Samuel 16:4-13 (cont’d) P1

10 9 Next, Jesse sent his son Shammah to him, and Samuel said, "The LORD hasn't chosen him either." 10 Jesse had all seven of his sons go over to Samuel. Finally, Samuel said, "Jesse, the LORD hasn't chosen any of these young men. 11 Do you have any more sons?" "Yes," Jesse answered. "My youngest son David is out taking care of the sheep." "Send for him!" Samuel said. "We won't start the ceremony until he gets here." RERC 0- 02a In the Image of God 3of4 The Call of David 1 Samuel 16:4-13 (cont’d) P1

11 12 Jesse sent for David. He was a healthy, good-looking boy with a sparkle in his eyes. As soon as David came, the LORD told Samuel, "He's the one! Get up and pour the olive oil on his head.“ 13 Samuel poured the oil on David's head while his brothers watched. At that moment, the Spirit of the LORD took control of David and stayed with him from then on. Samuel returned home to Ramah. RERC 0- 02a In the Image of God 4of4 The Call of David 1 Samuel 16:4-13 (cont’d) P1

12 RERC 0- 04a Revealed Truth of God 1 About that time Emperor Augustus gave orders for the names of all the people to be listed in record books. 2 These first records were made when Quirinius was governor of Syria. 3 Everyone had to go to their own hometown to be listed. 4 So Joseph had to leave Nazareth in Galilee and go to Bethlehem in Judea. Long ago Bethlehem had been King David's hometown, and Joseph went there because he was from David's family. Luke 2: of 6 The Birth of Jesus P1

13 5 Mary was engaged to Joseph and traveled with him to Bethlehem. She was soon going to have a baby, 6 and while they were there, 7 she gave birth to her first-born son. She dressed him in baby clothes and laid him on a bed of hay, because there was no room for them in the inn. 8 That night in the fields near Bethlehem some shepherds were guarding their sheep. RERC 0- 04a Revealed Truth of God Luke 2:1-20(cont’d) 2 of 6 P1

14 9 All at once an angel came down to them from the Lord, and the brightness of the Lord's glory flashed around them. The shepherds were frightened. 10 But the angel said, "Don't be afraid! I have good news for you, which will make everyone happy. 11 This very day in King David's hometown a Savior was born for you. He is Christ the Lord. Luke 2:1-20(cont’d) RERC 0- 04a Revealed Truth of God 3 of 6 P1

15 12 You will know who he is, because you will find him dressed in baby clothes and lying on a bed of hay." 13 Suddenly many other angels came down from heaven and joined in praising God. They said: 14 "Praise God in heaven! Peace on earth to everyone who pleases God." Luke 2:1-20 (cont’d) RERC 0- 04a Revealed Truth of God 4 of 6 P1

16 Luke 2:1-20(cont’d) 15 After the angels had left and gone back to heaven, the shepherds said to each other, "Let's go to Bethlehem and see what the Lord has told us about." 16 They hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and they saw the baby lying on a bed of hay. 17 When the shepherds saw Jesus, they told his parents what the angel had said about him. 18 Everyone listened and was surprised. RERC 0- 04a Revealed Truth of God 5 of 6 P1

17 19 But Mary kept thinking about all this and wondering what it meant. 20 As the shepherds returned to their sheep, they were praising God and saying wonderful things about him. Everything they had seen and heard was just as the angel had said. Luke 2:1-20(cont’d) RERC 0-04a Revealed Truth of God 6 of 6 P1

18 RERC 0- 04a Revealed Truth of God One day a messenger came to the town where Mary and Joseph were living. The messenger had some important news from the king. Everyone listened very carefully. He said, ‘The king wants to count all the people. Everyone must go back to the town where their family used to live. Then you will all be counted.’ Mary and Joseph’s family used to live in Bethlehem. So when they heard the messenger, they knew that they would have to go to Bethlehem. Luke 2: of 7 The Birth of Jesus (alternative) (from Jacqueline Sibley, Bible Stories for Little Children 6) P1

19 RERC 0- 04a Revealed Truth of God They couldn’t go in a comfortable bus, or on a fast train, because there weren’t any buses or trains then. The rich people rode on camels or on horses. The poor people rode on donkeys or else they walked. Mary and Joseph were too poor to have a camel or a horse. They had a donkey. It was a long way to Bethlehem. It took Mary and Joseph three days to get there. Each night they stayed at a house. Each day Mary rode on the donkey and Joseph walked beside her. Luke 2: of 7 The Birth of Jesus (alternative) (from Jacqueline Sibley, Bible Stories for Little Children 6) P1

20 RERC 0- 04a Revealed Truth of God ‘Clip, clop, clip, clop, clip, clop,’ went the donkeys hooves as they walked along. After three days they came to Bethlehem. Hundreds and hundreds of people were there. Everyone was waiting to be counted. Bethlehem was very crowded indeed. ‘May we stop as soon as we can?’ asked Mary. ‘Certainly we shall,’ said Joseph. Soon they came to a house. Joseph knocked on the door. Knock! Knock! Knock! Luke 2: of 7 The Birth of Jesus (alternative) (from Jacqueline Sibley, Bible Stories for Little Children 6) P1

21 RERC 0- 04a Revealed Truth of God The man came out. ‘Have you any room in your house?’ Joseph asked. ‘My wife is very tired. We should like to stay for the night.’ ‘No, I’m sorry, I haven’t any room,’ answered the man. ‘You cannot stay here.’ And he closed the door. ‘Never mind, Mary,’ said Joseph, ‘we’ll ask at another house.’ So they walked further down the road. ‘Clip, clop, clip, clop,’ went the donkey’s hooves as they walked along. Luke 2: of 7 The Birth of Jesus (alternative) (from Jacqueline Sibley, Bible Stories for Little Children 6) P1

22 RERC 0- 04a Revealed Truth of God At the next house Joseph knocked on the door. Knock! Knock! Knock! The man came out. ‘Have you any room in your house?’ Joseph asked. ‘My wife is very tired. We should like to stay for the night.’ ‘No, I’m sorry, I haven’t any room,’ answered the man. ‘You cannot stay here.’ And he closed the door. ‘Let’s go a bit further,’ said Joseph. Mary and Joseph were very tired. There were so many people in Bethlehem. But Joseph knew that they must find somewhere to sleep. Luke 2: of 7 The Birth of Jesus (alternative) (from Jacqueline Sibley, Bible Stories for Little Children 6) P1

23 RERC 0- 04a Revealed Truth of God ‘I’m sure that God will help us to find somewhere,’ said Mary. Then they came to a house where lots of people could stay. Joseph knocked on the door. Knock! Knock! Knock! The man came out. ‘Have you any room in your house?’ Joseph asked. ‘My wife is very tired. We should like to stay for the night.’ ‘No, I’m sorry, I haven’t any room,’ answered the man. ‘You cannot stay at my house.’ Luke 2: of 7 The Birth of Jesus (alternative) (from Jacqueline Sibley, Bible Stories for Little Children 6) P1

24 RERC 0- 04a Revealed Truth of God But I expect that he saw Mary sitting on the donkey looking tired, because then he said, ‘I haven’t any room in my house, but there is room in my stable. The animals that belong to the other travellers are there. My cows are there too. But your wife looks very tired. You may sleep there if you like. So Mary and Joseph went to the stable at the back of the house. They found a corner away from the animals, and lay down in the straw. Luke 2: of 7 The Birth of Jesus (alternative) (from Jacqueline Sibley, Bible Stories for Little Children 6) P1

25 RERC 0- 04a Revealed Truth of God That night Jesus, God’s son, was born. He was God’s Son, but he wasn’t born in a comfortable house. He was born in a stable with animals nearby. Mary wrapped baby Jesus in the swaddling clothes that she had brought. But she hadn’t a cradle for Him. So Joseph said, ‘Let’s use one of the animal’s feeding boxes.’ The feeding box was called a manger. Luke 2: of 7 The Birth of Jesus (alternative) (from Jacqueline Sibley, Bible Stories for Little Children 6) P1

26 RERC 0- 04a Revealed Truth of God Joseph put some clean straw into the manger and then Mary gently down to sleep. Mary and Joseph looked at Baby Jesus. They loved Him very much. They were so happy. They knew that God had sent His Son as he had promised. Jesus, God’s Son, had been born. Luke 2: of 7 The Birth of Jesus (alternative) (from Jacqueline Sibley, Bible Stories for Little Children 6) P1

27 8 That night in the fields near Bethlehem some shepherds were guarding their sheep. 9 All at once an angel came down to them from the Lord, and the brightness of the Lord's glory flashed around them. The shepherds were frightened. 10 But the angel said, "Don't be afraid! I have good news for you, which will make everyone happy. 11 This very day in King David's hometown a Savior was born for you. He is Christ the Lord. Luke 2:8-20 RERC 0- 05a Son of God 1 of 4 P1 The Shepherds and angels

28 12 You will know who he is, because you will find him dressed in baby clothes and lying on a bed of hay." 13 Suddenly many other angels came down from heaven and joined in praising God. They said: 14 "Praise God in heaven! Peace on earth to everyone who pleases God." Luke 2:8-20 (cont’d) RERC 0- 05a Son of God 2 of 4 P1

29 Luke 2:8-20(cont’d) 15 After the angels had left and gone back to heaven, the shepherds said to each other, "Let's go to Bethlehem and see what the Lord has told us about." 16 They hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and they saw the baby lying on a bed of hay. 17 When the shepherds saw Jesus, they told his parents what the angel had said about him. 18 Everyone listened and was surprised. RERC 0- 05a Son of God 3 of 4 P1

30 19 But Mary kept thinking about all this and wondering what it meant. 20 As the shepherds returned to their sheep, they were praising God and saying wonderful things about him. Everything they had seen and heard was just as the angel had said. Luke 2:8-20(cont’d) RERC 0-05a Son of God 4 of 4 P1

31 The shepherds and the angels (alternative) from Jacqueline Sibley, Story Time Two Once there was a shepherd. We do not know his name, but we shall call him Benjamin. Benjamin and his friends looked after some sheep. One night, they were on a hill outside Bethlehem. It was a cold night and Benjamin wrapped his cloak around himself to keep warm. RERC 0-05a Son of God Luke 2:8-20(cont’d) 4of5P2

32 The shepherds had built a fire. The fire frightened away any lions or bears that might be around, for lions and bears like to catch little lambs. The fire also kept the shepherds warm. Benjamin lay down near it to go to sleep. He could see the stars twinkling in the sky. He could hear the sheep saying 'Baa' softly to one another. Some other shepherds were lying near the fire too. But some stayed awake because it was their turn to look after the sheep. They had to see that none wandered away and was lost. They had to make sure that no lions or bears were around. RERC 0-05a Son of God Luke 2:8-20(cont’d) 4of5P2

33 Suddenly Benjamin saw a light. It was shining very brightly. It was much brighter than the flickering fire or the twinkling stars. He couldn't understand what it was. He jumped up and looked around. Then he saw an angel. He had never seen an angel before and he was frightened. He looked for his friends. They had seen the angel too. They were kneeling on the ground hiding their faces. So Benjamin knelt on the ground and hid his face. No one dared to look at the angel. They were all afraid. RERC 0-05a Son of God Luke 2:8-20(cont’d) 4of5P2

34 The angel knew that they were frightened. He said to them, 'Don't be afraid! I have come to bring you some good news. Tonight God's Son has been born. He has been born quite near here in Bethlehem. You can find Him for yourselves. You will know when you have found Him because He has been born in a stable. His mother has put Him in a manger. She hasn't a proper cradle for Him.' RERC 0-05a Son of God Luke 2:8-20(cont’d) 4of5P2

35 Suddenly Benjamin saw some other angels in the sky. They were singing a beautiful song to praise God. Benjamin listened to their song. He had never heard anything so beautiful before. He wondered if he were really dreaming. Then the song ended. The angels went away. The bright light disappeared. It was quiet and dark everywhere again. Some of the shepherds rubbed their eyes. Some of them stood up. No one spoke for a little while. RERC 0-05a Son of God Luke 2:8-20(cont’d) 4of5P2

36 Then one of the older men said, 'Why are we all standing here! We must go straight to Bethlehem. We must find this Baby whom God has told us about.' 'Of course we must go,’ said another shepherd. 'Yes! yes !' said Benjamin and everyone else. So the shepherds left their sheep on the hillside. They hurried down to Bethlehem as fast as they could go. Benjamin was very excited. He could hardly wait to get there. Soon they came to Bethlehem and found the stable where Mary and Joseph were staying. RERC 0-05a Son of God Luke 2:8-20(cont’d) 4of5P2

37 One shepherd went quietly inside. 'May my friends and I see your Baby, please?' he asked Mary. 'Of course you may,’ Mary replied. So all the shepherds looked at Baby Jesus. They were very quiet. They didn't want to frighten Him. Benjamin looked at Him too. Baby Jesus was wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying a manger, just as the angel had said. He was very, very tiny. RERC 0-05a Son of God Luke 2:8-20(cont’d) 4of5P2

38 They were all so happy that they had seen Baby Jesus. Each one of them said Thank You' to God for sending the angel to tell them about Him, and for letting them see Him. Benjamin said 'Thank You' to God too. He knew that he would never forget that wonderful night. RERC 0-05a Son of God Luke 2:8-20 (cont’d) 4of5P2

39 The Magi/Wise men 1 When Jesus was born in the village of Bethlehem in Judea, Herod was king. During this time some wise men from the east came to Jerusalem 2 and said, "Where is the child born to be king of the Jews? We saw his star in the east and have come to worship him.“ 3 When King Herod heard about this, he was worried, and so was everyone else in Jerusalem. RERC 0-05a Son of God Matthew 2 : 1-12 P1

40 Matthew 2 : 1-12 (cont’d) RERC 0-05a Son of God 4 Herod brought together the chief priests and the teachers of the Law of Moses and asked them, "Where will the Messiah be born?" 5 They told him, "He will be born in Bethlehem, just as the prophet wrote, 6 'Bethlehem in the land of Judea, you are very important among the towns of Judea. From your town will come a leader, who will be like a shepherd for my people Israel.' " P1

41 RERC 0-05a Son of God Matthew 2 : 1-12 (cont’d) 7 Herod secretly called in the wise men and asked them when they had first seen the star. 8 He told them, "Go to Bethlehem and search carefully for the child. As soon as you find him, let me know. I want to go and worship him too." 9 The wise men listened to what the king said and then left. And the star they had seen in the east went on ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was. P1

42 10 They were thrilled and excited to see the star. 11 When the men went into the house and saw the child with Mary, his mother, they knelt down and worshiped him. They took out their gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh and gave them to him. 12 Later they were warned in a dream not to return to Herod, and they went back home by another road. RERC 0- 05a Son of God Matthew 2 : 1-12 (cont’d) P1

43 RERC 0- 07a Son of God Mark 16:1-6 Easter Sunday morning 1 After the Sabbath, Mary Magdalene, Salome, and Mary the mother of James bought some spices to put on Jesus' body. 2 Very early on Sunday morning, just as the sun was coming up, they went to the tomb. 3 On their way, they were asking one another, "Who will roll the stone away from the entrance for us?" 4 But when they looked, they saw that the stone had already been rolled away. And it was a huge stone! P1

44 RERC 0-07a Son of God Mark 16:1-6 (cont’d) 5 The women went into the tomb, and on the right side they saw a young man in a white robe sitting there. They were alarmed. 6 The man said, "Don't be alarmed! You are looking for Jesus from Nazareth, who was nailed to a cross. God has raised him to life, and he isn't here. You can see the place where they put his body. P1

45 RERC 0- 07a Signs of God Romans 8: In certain ways we are weak, but the Spirit is here to help us. For example, when we don't know what to pray for, the Spirit prays for us in ways that cannot be put into words. 27 All of our thoughts are known to God. He can understand what is in the mind of the Spirit, as the Spirit prays for God's people. The Holy Spirit Helps Us To Pray P1

46 The Widow’s Offering 41 Jesus was sitting in the temple near the offering box and watching people put in their gifts. He noticed that many rich people were giving a lot of money. 42 Finally, a poor widow came up and put in two coins that were worth only a few pennies. 43 Jesus told his disciples to gather around him. Then he said: I tell you that this poor widow has put in more than all the others. 44 Everyone else gave what they didn't need. But she is very poor and gave everything she had. Now she doesn't have a penny to live on. RERC 0-11a Word of God P1 Mark 12:41-44

47 The Widow’s Offering (alternative) (from Jacqueline Sibley, Bible Stories for Little Children 5) RERC 0-11a Word of God P1 Mark 12:41-44 In God’s House, the Temple, there were thirteen boxes. Can you count them? One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven, twelve, thirteen. Every day crowds of people walked past them and as they did they usually threw some money into one of them. You see, these thirteen special boxes were collecting boxes and the money that people put into them was used for God’s work.

48 The Widow’s Offering (alternative) (from Jacqueline Sibley, Bible Stories for Little Children 5) RERC 0-11a Word of God P1 Mark 12:41-44 One day, Jesus and his friends were sitting in God’s House, the Temple. As they sat there Jesus could see the thirteen special boxes and He watched the people throwing in their money. One man wore beautiful clothes. He must have had lots of money to be able to buy them. He stopped by one of the special boxes. ‘I must give some money to God’s work,’ he said.

So he took out some gold and silver coins and dropped them into the box, clankety-clankety- clank, clankety-clankety-clank. All the people watched him. The man listened to them falling and then he walked away. He still had plenty of gold and silver coins left to spend on himself.

50 The Widow’s Offering (alternative) (from Jacqueline Sibley, Bible Stories for Little Children 5) RERC 0-11a Word of God P1 Mark 12:41-44 A rich man came by. He always ate plenty of good, rich food. He must have had lots of money to be able to buy it. He stopped by one of the special boxes. ‘I must give some money to God’s work,’ he said. So he took out some gold and silver coins and dropped them into the box, clankety-clankety- clank, clankety-clankety-clank. All the people watched him.

51 The Widow’s Offering (alternative) (from Jacqueline Sibley, Bible Stories for Little Children 5) RERC 0-11a Word of God P1 Mark 12:41-44 A lady also walked by the special boxes. She lived in a magnificent house and had many helpers to do her work for her. He must have had lots of money, too. She stopped by one of the special boxes. ‘I must give some money to God’s work,’ she said. So he took out some gold and silver coins and dropped them into the box, clankety-clankety- clank, clankety-clankety-clank. All the people watched him. The lady listened to them falling and then he walked away. He still had plenty of gold and silver coins left to spend on himself.

52 The Widow’s Offering (alternative) (from Jacqueline Sibley, Bible Stories for Little Children 5) RERC 0-11a Word of God P1 Mark 12:41-44 Another man walked by. He had many camels that carried things from place to place and they earned lots of money for him. He stopped by one of the special boxes. ‘I must give some money to God’s work,’ she said. So he took out some gold and silver coins and dropped them into the box, clankety-clankety- clank, clankety-clankety-clank. All the people watched him.

53 The Widow’s Offering (alternative) (from Jacqueline Sibley, Bible Stories for Little Children 5) RERC 0-11a Word of God P1 Mark 12:41-44 Jesus saw all these people as they put their money into the special boxes. But He also knew about all the money they had left. He knew that they had plenty of gold and silver coins left to spend on themselves. Then a very poor lady came by. She lived by herself and had no husband to earn money for her. She wasn’t wearing beautiful clothes; her clothes were old and mended. She didn’t eat plenty of rich food; sometimes she was very hungry.

54 The Widow’s Offering (alternative) (from Jacqueline Sibley, Bible Stories for Little Children 5) RERC 0-11a Word of God P1 Mark 12:41-44 She didn’t live in a magnificent house and have people to help her. Her house was small and had very few things in it. She certainly didn’t have any camels to earn lots of money for her; she couldn’t even afford a little donkey. The only money that she had was two tiny brown coins and they weren’t worth very much at all. But she loved God. ‘I would like to give something to help God’s work,’ she thought.

55 The Widow’s Offering (alternative) (from Jacqueline Sibley, Bible Stories for Little Children 5) RERC 0-11a Word of God P1 Mark 12:41-44 Jesus watched her as she stopped by one of the special boxes. He saw her drop in, not one, but both of her tiny brown coins. Clink-clink, they fell. It wasn’t much money, but it was all she had. Then she hurried away. She didn’t know that Jesus had been watching. But Jesus had seen her and He knew that she had no money left for herself. As she went away, Jesus said to His friends, ‘The rich people have given lots of money for God’s work today, but they all have plenty left for themselves. The poor lady only gave two tiny coins, but she gave all that she could. She has given the best gift of them all.

56 The Parable of the Good Samaritan 25 An expert in the Law of Moses stood up and asked Jesus a question to see what he would say. "Teacher," he asked, "what must I do to have eternal life?" 26 Jesus answered, "What is written in the Scriptures? How do you understand them?" 27 The man replied, "The Scriptures say, `Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind.' They also say, `Love your neighbors as much as you love yourself.' " Luke 10:25-37RERC 0-11a Word of God P1

57 28 Jesus said, "You have given the right answer. If you do this, you will have eternal life." 29 But the man wanted to show that he knew what he was talking about. So he asked Jesus, "Who are my neighbors?" 30 Jesus replied: As a man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, robbers attacked him and grabbed everything he had. They beat him up and ran off, leaving him half dead. RERC 0-11a Word of God Luke 10:25-37 (cont’d)

58 31 A priest happened to be going down the same road. But when he saw the man, he walked by on the other side. 32 Later a temple helper came to the same place. But when he saw the man who had been beaten up, he also went by on the other side. 33 A man from Samaria then came traveling along that road. When he saw the man, he felt sorry for him 34 and went over to him. He treated his wounds with olive oil and wine and bandaged them. RERC 0-11a Word of GodLuke10:25-37(cont’d)

59 Then he put him on his own donkey and took him to an inn, where he took care of him. 35 The next morning he gave the innkeeper two silver coins and said, "Please take care of the man. If you spend more than this on him, I will pay you when I return." 36 Then Jesus asked, "Which one of these three people was a real neighbor to the man who was beaten up by robbers?" 37 The teacher answered, "The one who showed pity." Jesus said, "Go and do the same!" RERC 0-11a Word of GodLuke 10:25-37(cont’d) P1

60 The Parable of the Good Samaritan (alternative) From Pamela Dowman, Story Time One One man said, 'I'll have his clothes: Another man said, 'I'll take his bag. It might have some money in it!' Then they jumped up among the rocks again and disappeared. Poor Mr. Joab was hurt. He couldn't get up. His head hurt and he had some scratches on his arms and legs. 'If only someone would come and help me: he thought. Presently he heard footsteps coming down the road. Trit-trot, trit-trot, trit-trot. This was a man who said he loved God.

61 The Parable of the Good Samaritan (alternative) From Pamela Dowman, Story Time One 'Here's someone,’ thought Mr. Joab. 'He'll help me: But when the man saw Mr. Joab he was frightened. 'I must hurry on: he thought. 'Some bad men might catch me too: So he just left Mr. Joab lying in the road. He wasn't kind. Mr. Joab felt very ill. 'I wish I could have a drink of water,’ he thought. Then he could hear more footsteps. Trit-trot, trit-trot, trit- trot. Another man was coming down the road. This was a man who often went to church. 'I'm sure this man will help me,’ Mr. Joab thought.

62 The Parable of the Good Samaritan (alternative) From Pamela Dowman, Story Time One The man saw Mr. Joab lying in the road and he came to look at him. He saw that he was hurt and that he needed someone to be kind to him, but he thought, 'I must hurry on, or the bad men will catch me too,’ So he left Mr. Joab lying in the road. He wasn't kind. Mr. Joab was so unhappy. He was too hot, and he wanted a drink, and his arms and legs were hurting. Then he heard a donkey coming down the road.

63 The Parable of the Good Samaritan (alternative) From Pamela Dowman, Story Time One 'I wonder if this man will stop and help me: thought Mr. Joab. 'I don't expect so. The people from his country aren't friends with the people from my country. He won't want to help me.' But the man saw Mr. Joab. 'Poor man: he thought, 'I must help him.’ He got off his donkey and gave Mr. Joab a drink of water. Then he put some ointment on his cuts, and bandaged them up. How surprised Mr. Joab was!

64 The Parable of the Good Samaritan (alternative) From Pamela Dowman, Story Time One 'You're too ill to walk: said the man. 'You must ride on my donkey.' So Mr. Joab got on to the donkey. and they began to move along. Quite often Mr. Joab nearly fell off because he was so ill. so the donkey had to go slowly. Clip-clop, clip-clop, went the donkey. 'Now we're almost there: said the kind man. 'We'll stay at that house, and you'll soon be in bed: They stopped outside the house, and the kind man lifted Mr. Joab off the donkey and carried him indoors. Luke 10:25-37RERC 0-11a Word of God P1

65 The Parable of the Good Samaritan (alternative) From Pamela Dowman, Story Time One Then he put him on to a bed. 'You need a good rest: he said. 'try to go to sleep.' 'Thank you: said Mr. Joab. 'You're very kind.' The next morning, the kind man said to the man whose house it was. 'Here are two silver coins. Mr. Joab can't pay you for staying here because his money was stolen. If you need any more money for him. I'll give it to you next time I come.’ Soon Mr Joab was better. How glad he was for the kind man who had helped him! Luke 10:25-37RERC 0-11a Word of God P1

66 The miracle of the Man at the Pool RERC 0-11a Word of God 1 Later, Jesus went to Jerusalem for another Jewish festival. 2 In the city near the sheep gate was a pool with five porches, and its name in Hebrew was Bethzatha. 3-4 Many sick, blind, lame, and crippled people were lying close to the pool. 5 Beside the pool was a man who had been sick for thirty-eight years. 6 When Jesus saw the man and realized that he had been crippled for a long time, he asked him, "Do you want to be healed?" John 5:1-9 P1

67 7 The man answered, "Lord, I don't have anyone to put me in the pool when the water is stirred up. I try to get in, but someone else always gets there first." 8 Jesus told him, "Pick up your mat and walk!" 9 Right then the man was healed. He picked up his mat and started walking around. The day on which this happened was a Sabbath. RERC 0-11a Word of God (John 10:25-37) P1 The miracle of the Man at the Pool

68 Once in the land where Jesus lived there was a man who was very lonely. He didn’t have any special friends. He didn’t seem to have anyone who really cared about him. He was lonely and sad. But not only that, he was also ill. He had been ill for years and years and no doctor knew how to make him better. No wonder the man felt sad. For a long time he had been staying at a certain pool. There were many other people by this pool, too. RERC 0-11a Word of God (John 10:25-37) P1 The miracle of the Man at the Pool (alternative) (from Jacqueline Sibley, Bible Stories for Little Children 4)

69 Some of them were blind and couldn’t see. Some of them were lame and had to walk with sticks. Some of them just couldn’t move at all. But they were all staying at the pool for the same reason. Sometimes the water in this pool began to bubble and swirl. The sick people were waiting for this to happen and as soon as it did, they tried to get into the water. They believed that the first person to get in would be made well again. RERC 0-11a Word of God (John 10:25-37) P1 The miracle of the Man at the Pool (alternative) (from Jacqueline Sibley, Bible Stories for Little Children 4)

70 The lonely man watched the water every day. As soon as he saw it move, bubble and swirl, bubble and swirl, he thought, ‘I must get down to the pool,’ and he struggled to the edge. But before he could get into the water, somebody else got in first. Perhaps the person had some friends to help him and that was why he had been so quick. But the lonely man had no friends to help him. He struggled back to his mat-bed and watched the water again. RERC 0-11a Word of God (John 10:25-37) P1 The miracle of the Man at the Pool (alternative) (from Jacqueline Sibley, Bible Stories for Little Children 4)

71 Some days later he saw it move once more, bubble and swirl, bubble and swirl. ‘I must get down to the pool,’ he thought. But before he could get into the water somebody else got in first. That person had some friends to help him and so he had been quick. But the lonely man had no friends to help him. He went back to his mat-bed and thought, ‘I’ll never be made well. I haven’t any friends who will help me get into the water. Someone else will always get there before me.’ RERC 0-11a Word of God (John 10:25-37) P1 The miracle of the Man at the Pool (alternative) (from Jacqueline Sibley, Bible Stories for Little Children 4)

72 And yet he stayed there, still hoping that one day he might manage to be the first one in. But one day something happened. Jesus went along to the pool. He saw the lonely man lying on his mat-bed and he knew all about him. He knew that he had been lying there for a long time. He knew that he had often tried to be the first one into the pool, but that he had nobody to help him. He knew that the man was lonely and sad. RERC 0-11a Word of God (John 10:25-37) P1 The miracle of the Man at the Pool (alternative) (from Jacqueline Sibley, Bible Stories for Little Children 4)

73 So Jesus asked him, ‘Do you want to get well?’ The lonely man looked at Jesus and said, ‘Sir, when the water bubbles and swirls I’ve tried and tried to be the first one to get into the pool. But I haven’t anyone to help me. Somebody always gets there before me.’ Then Jesus said to him, ‘Get up, roll up your mat- bed and walk.’ The man looked at Jesus again. RERC 0-11a Word of God (John 10:25-37) P1 The miracle of the Man at the Pool (alternative) (from Jacqueline Sibley, Bible Stories for Little Children 4)

74 He thought, ‘This man looks kind and strong. I believe that He can help me.’ So he did what Jesus said. He sat up. Then he stood up. His legs were quite firm and strong and he felt quite well. He began to walk about. How happy he felt! He thought, ‘Now I won’t have to stay by this pool and more. Now I won’t have to wait for the water to bubble and swirl. I can go and live at home again. I can go to work and make new friends. I can walk about and go wherever I want to go.’ RERC 0-11a Word of God (John 10:25-37) P1 The miracle of the Man at the Pool (alternative) (from Jacqueline Sibley, Bible Stories for Little Children 4)

75 And one of the first places to which he walked was God’s House, the Temple. I expect he went there to say ‘Thank You’ to God the Father for sending Someone who cared about him and who made him better.

76 Jesus Heals Ten Lepers 11 On his way to Jerusalem, Jesus went along the border between Samaria and Galilee. 12 As he was going into a village, ten men with leprosy came toward him. They stood at a distance 13 and shouted, "Jesus, Master, have pity on us!" 14 Jesus looked at them and said, "Go show yourselves to the priests." RERC 0-11a Word of GodLuke 17:11-19 P1

77 On their way they were healed. 15 When one of them discovered that he was healed, he came back, shouting praises to God. 16 He bowed down at the feet of Jesus and thanked him. The man was from the country of Samaria. 17 Jesus asked, "Weren't ten men healed? Where are the other nine? 18 Why was this foreigner the only one who came back to thank God?" 19 Then Jesus told the man, "You may get up and go. Your faith has made you well." RERC 0-11a Word of God Luke:17:11-19 P1 Jesus Heals Ten Lepers

78 Once there were ten men. You can count them. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten. We don't know their names but they could have been names like Alphaeus, Ezekiel, Malchus, Simeon-you haven't any friends with those names, have you? Those ten men were very sad and lonely because they were all very ill. They didn't have to stay in bed all day, but they had to keep away from everybody else. You see, they had spots all over them, and someone else could get the spots, too. RERC 0-11a Word of God Luke:17:11-19 P1 Jesus Heals Ten Lepers (alternative) From Pamela Dowman, Story Time One

79 It was rather like when someone has measles or chicken-pox and they can't come out to play because someone else might catch it, too. One man said, ‘I don't think we shall ever be better: The second man said, 'The doctors don't know how to make us better. All the other people who lived near said, 'You can't stay here in the town. We don't want to get all those spots. You must go away and live by yourselves. And if ever you meet anyone else, you must ring your bells, and say, "Keep away! Keep away!" RERC 0-11a Word of God Luke:17:11-19 (cont’d) P1 Jesus Heals Ten Lepers (alternative) From Pamela Dowman, Story Time One

80 The third man said, 'What shall we have for food ?' 'We will leave some food for you; said the people. 'But you must only fetch it when we are not there. We don't want to get all those spots.' So off went the ten men. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten. They went out of the town, and away from all their families and friends. All the people said, 'Goodbye, and keep away from everybody. You mustn't come back here.' Whenever they saw someone coming along the road they rang their bells, 'Ting-a-ling-a-ling.' How sad and miserable they all were. RERC 0-11a Word of God Luke:17:11-19 (cont’d) P1 Jesus Heals Ten Lepers (alternative) From Pamela Dowman, Story Time One

81 The fourth man said, 'I wish I could see my little boy. I expect he's big enough to walk now.' The fifth man said, 'I wish I could be with my little girl. She's big enough to help her mother with the cooking.' The sixth man grumbled, 'We'll never get better. It's no good wishing you were at home.‘ One very special day they could see several people coming along the road. They rang their bells. Ting-a- ling-a-ling.' They called out 'Keep away! Keep away l' RERC 0-11a Word of God Luke:17:11-19 (cont’d) P1 Jesus Heals Ten Lepers (alternative) From Pamela Dowman, Story Time One

82 But one man kept on coming nearer and nearer to them. They rang their bells again, 'Ting-a-ling-a­ling.' 'Keep away! Keep away!' they shouted but He took no notice. As He came nearer they could see that it was Jesus. The seventh man said, 'It's Jesus.' The eighth man said, 'He can do wonderful things.' The ninth man said, 'He wants to be everyone's friend. RERC 0-11a Word of God Luke:17:11-19 (cont’d) P1 Jesus Heals Ten Lepers (alternative) From Pamela Dowman, Story Time One

83 The tenth man said, 'Let's ask Him to help us.' So they called out together, 'Jesus, Master, please help us!' Jesus stopped. He was glad they wanted Him to help them. He didn't run away from them like other people did. He looked at them all, and when they looked at Him, He looked so kind and strong. They knew He loved them. Then Jesus made them well. Jesus said, 'Go to the man at the church and show him that you are better; then you can go home to see your families.' RERC 0-11a Word of God Luke:17:11-19 (cont’d) P1 Jesus Heals Ten Lepers (alternative) From Pamela Dowman, Story Time One

84 So they all ran off to show that they were better. One, two, three, four five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten. All ten of them. The first man said, 'My spots have gone.' The second man said, 'So have mine.' The third man said, 'We‘ll be able to go and see our friends.' Just then, one man stopped. He turned round. Then he ran all the way back, until he found Jesus again. RERC 0-11a Word of God Luke:17:11-19 (cont’d) P1 Jesus Heals Ten Lepers (alternative) From Pamela Dowman, Story Time One

85 He knelt down in front of Jesus and said, 'Thank You, Jesus, for making me well again.’ Then Jesus looked around, and He said, 'I thought there were ten men who had been made well. Where are the other nine?' But Jesus was glad that one remembered to say 'Thank You: RERC 0-11a Word of God Luke:17:11-19 (cont’d) P1 Jesus Heals Ten Lepers (alternative) From Pamela Dowman, Story Time One

86 RERC 0-11a Word of God 1 Three days later Mary, the mother of Jesus, was at a wedding feast in the village of Cana in Galilee. 2 Jesus and his disciples had also been invited and were there. 3 When the wine was all gone, Mary said to Jesus, "They don't have any more wine." 4 Jesus replied, "Mother, my time hasn't yet come: You must not tell me what to do." 5 Mary then said to the servants, "Do whatever Jesus tells you to do." John 2:1-10 The Wedding at Cana P1

87 6 At the feast there were six stone water jars that were used by the people for washing themselves in the way that their religion said they must. Each jar held about twenty or thirty gallons. 7 Jesus told the servants to fill them to the top with water. Then after the jars had been filled, 8 he said, "Now take some water and give it to the man in charge of the feast." RERC 0-11a Word of God John 2:1-10 (cont’d) The Wedding at Cana P1

88 The servants did as Jesus told them, 9 and the man in charge drank some of the water that had now turned into wine. He did not know where the wine had come from, but the servants did. He called the bridegroom over 10 and said, "The best wine is always served first. Then after the guests have had plenty, the other wine is served. But you have kept the best until last!" RERC 0-11a Word of GodJohn 2:1-10 (cont’d) The Wedding at Cana P1

89 Once Jesus went to a wedding. He went with His mother and some of his friends. Can you remember His mother’s name? Her name was Mary. Mary, Jesus and His friends walked together to the house of the man who was being married. He was called the bridegroom. They were hot and dusty when they arrived. But near the door there were six water-pots. Let’s count them. One, two, three, four, five, six. They were very big. They were almost as big as you are. RERC 0-11a Word of GodJohn 2:1-10 The Wedding at Cana (alternative) (from Jacqueline Sibley, Bible Stories for Little Children 5) P1

90 A helper poured out some water from one of them. So Mary, Jesus and His friends washed their dusty feet. They felt much cooler and fresher after this. They washed their hands too. Then they went in to the wedding. They saw the bride and bridegroom. The bride wasn’t wearing a long white dress. She was wearing a pretty dress with a lovely pattern sewn on it. There were a lot of people at the wedding party. They were talking and laughing together. The helpers were very busy. RERC 0-11a Word of GodJohn 2:1-10 The Wedding at Cana (alternative) (from Jacqueline Sibley, Bible Stories for Little Children 5) P1

91 There was some lovely food for the people to eat and the helpers had to give it to them. There was some wine for the people to drink and the helpers had to pour it out for them. They had to see that everyone had what they wanted. After a while Mary saw that some of the helpers were looking worried. She saw some of them whispering together. She thought, ‘Something must be wrong.’ So she asked one of them, ‘What’s the matter?’ RERC 0-11a Word of GodJohn 2:1-10 The Wedding at Cana (alternative) (from Jacqueline Sibley, Bible Stories for Little Children 5) P1

92 The helper looked sad. He said very quietly, ‘We haven’t enough wine. It’s almost gone and we can’t get any more. Soon we shall have nothing for the people to drink.’ The helpers didn’t know what to do. But Mary knew what to do. She went straight to Jesus. She said to Him, ‘There’s no wine left. The helpers are very worried. They don’t know what to do.’ She knew that Jesus would help them. Then Mary said to the helpers, ‘Do what Jesus tells you to do. Everything will be all right.’ The helpers believed her. They believed that Jesus would help them.

93 Jesus looked at the water-pots that were near the door. Can you remember how many there were? Let’s count them again. One, two, three, four, five, six. Six water-pots that were very big. They were almost as big as you are. Jesus said to the helpers, ‘Fill the water-pots with water.’ So they did. They knew that they must do what Jesus told them. They filled the big water-pots right up to the top. RERC 0-11a Word of GodJohn 2:1-10 The Wedding at Cana (alternative) (from Jacqueline Sibley, Bible Stories for Little Children 5) P1

94 Then Jesus said to them, ‘Now pour some out and take it to the man in charge of the wedding party.’ So they did. They didn’t say, ‘But this is water, we can’t take water to the man in charge.’ They knew that they must do what Jesus told them. They poured some out and one of the servants took it to the man in charge. He tasted it, and it wasn’t water any longer. Jesus had changed the water into wine. RERC 0-11a Word of GodJohn 2:1-10 The Wedding at Cana (alternative) (from Jacqueline Sibley, Bible Stories for Little Children 5) P1

95 The man in charge spoke to the bridegroom. He said to him, ‘I have just tasted some more of your wine. It really delicious. You must have kept the best wine until the end of the wedding party.’ He didn’t know that Jesus had changed the water into wine. But the helpers knew. They were glad that Mary had asked Jesus to help them. And they were glad that they had done what Jesus said.

96 22 Right away, Jesus made his disciples get into a boat and start back across the lake. But he stayed until he had sent the crowds away. 23 Then he went up on a mountain where he could be alone and pray. Later that evening, he was still there. 24 By this time the boat was a long way from the shore. It was going against the wind and was being tossed around by the waves. RERC 0-11a Word of God Matthew 14: P1 Jesus walks on water

97 25 A little while before morning, Jesus came walking on the water toward his disciples. 26 When they saw him, they thought he was a ghost. They were terrified and started screaming. 27 At once, Jesus said to them, "Don't worry! I am Jesus. Don't be afraid." 28 Peter replied, "Lord, if it is really you, tell me to come to you on the water." RERC 0-11a Word of God Matthew 14: (cont’d) P1 Jesus walks on water

98 29 "Come on!" Jesus said. Peter then got out of the boat and started walking on the water toward him. 30 But when Peter saw how strong the wind was, he was afraid and started sinking. "Save me, Lord!" he shouted. 31 Right away, Jesus reached out his hand. He helped Peter up and said, "You surely don't have much faith. Why do you doubt?"
