Kids Lesson Review – Luke 1 – The Birth of Jesus Foretold


Here are some review notes from this week’s lesson in our preschool and K-4 classes. This week we studied Luke 2:1-20, The Birth of Jesus.

This is lesson 1 of 78 in our study of the New Testament. This lesson corresponds with Story 79 in The Gospel Story Bible and with Week 1 of the Old Story New family devotional.

Gospel Truth for Today

The baby born to Mary would be the savior of the world.

The Lesson In A Sentence

Today we learned about how God announced the birth of Jesus to Mary and that her son, Jesus, would be the savior of the world.

Questions For Your Kids

Parents, we have provided some basic answers to the questions so that when your child inevitably says, “I don’t remember,” you can feed them some clues and help them recount the lesson.

Who were some of the people you learned about in class today (what did they do?)

Zechariah – John the Baptist’s father. Was visited by an angel and told he’d have a son in his old age. Couldn’t speak until his son, John, was born because he didn’t believe the angel.

Elizabeth – John the Baptist’s mother. She had a baby even though she was very old. Proclaimed Jesus to be Lord in vs 43.

Gabriel – Angel sent to Mary. Told her she would have a son even though she wasn’t married. The baby would be called Jesus.

Mary – Jesus’ mother. Believed God’s good news about the baby to be born.

What was special about Mary’s baby?

The baby is Jesus. The angel declared that he would be called “the son of God” (v 35). He would grow up, just like a normal child, but he would live a perfect life of love and obedience to God and give his life to die for our sins.

Mary responded to God’s plans by saying “yes.” What is God calling us to do?

God is calling all of us to believe and trust in Jesus. Though Jesus came as a baby, he grew up to be the Savior of the world and died on the cross for the forgiveness of our sins. God calls all of us to believe.
