Kids Lesson Review – Luke 5:1-11 – The Miraculous Catch


Here are some review notes from this week’s lesson in our preschool and K-4 classes. This week we studied Luke 5:1-11, The Miraculous Catch.

This is lesson 11 of 78 in our study of the New Testament. This lesson corresponds with Story 89 in The Gospel Story Bible and with Week 11 of the Old Story New family devotional.

Gospel Truth for Today

In our story, Jesus told Peter he’d be a fisher of men. After Jesus’ death on the cross for our sins, resurrection, and ascension, Peter told a massive crowd the Good News of Jesus and thousands were saved. Now he calls us to be fishers of men!

The Lesson In A Sentence (or two)

After preaching to a crowd, Jesus performs a miracle by allowing Simon to catch a huge number of fish. Simon is convicted of his unrighteousness, but Jesus calls Simon to follow him and become a fisher of men.

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.

What happened in the story?

The fishermen had been out all night fishing but had caught nothing. Jesus told Simon Peter to push the boat out into deep water and cast the nets again. This time they caught a huge number of fish.

What was so amazing about catching so many fish?

The disciples had already worked all night and had not caught a single fish.

What was Jesus trying to teach the disciples by helping them catch all these fish?

He used this miracle to illustrate his awesome power and control of all things. By this he taught them he was not just a good teacher, he was God.

Does God call people to follow him and be his disciples today?

Yes, every person who becomes a Christian has been changed by the power of God and called to follow him as a disciple of the Lord. All Christians are Jesus’ disciples or followers. That is what the name Christian means.
