Kids Lesson Review – John 3:1-21 – Nicodemus


Here are some review notes from this week’s lesson in our preschool and K-4 classes. This week we studied John 3:1-21, Nicodemus.

This is lesson 9 of 78 in our study of the New Testament. This lesson corresponds with Story 87 in The Gospel Story Bible and with Week 9 of the Old Story New family devotional.

Gospel Truth for Today

You must be born again to enter the kingdom of heaven.

The Lesson In A Sentence

Nicodemus visited Jesus in the cover of night and learned that it isn’t his good works that gain him access to heaven, but it is the work of God’s Spirit through the faith in Jesus.

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 came to Jesus?

Nicodemus came to Jesus. He was an important religious leader, similar to a pastor in the church.

Why did Nicodemus come to Jesus at night?

Nicodemus came at night so no one would know that he wanted to know more about what
Jesus was teaching.

What did Jesus tell Nicodemus that confused him?

Jesus told Nicodemus that he must be born again. This confused Nicodemus because he knew that a man could not go back into his mom’s body to be born again.

What does it mean to be born again?

That is when the Holy Spirit comes into a person and changes his heart so that he can love God.

Why did Jesus say being born again is important?

Jesus told Nicodemus that unless a man is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God. Jesus was explaining to Nicodemus God’s plan to save his people. God would take their sinful hearts and change them, make them as if they were born again so that they would be able to understand God’s plan.
