Kids Lesson Review – Matthew 3:1-12 – The Ministry of John The Baptist


Here are some review notes from this week’s lesson in our preschool and K-4 classes. This week we studied Matthew 3:1-12, The Ministry of John The Baptist.

This is lesson 4 of 78 in our study of the New Testament. This lesson corresponds with Story 82 in The Gospel Story Bible and with Week 4 of the Old Story New family devotional.

Gospel Truth for Today

John the Baptist clearly portrayed men as sinful, in need of a Savior. In Luke 3:6 John the Baptist said: “All flesh shall see the salvation of God.” John was not merely introducing a great prophet; he was introducing the Lord himself, who would bring salvation to all people.

The Lesson In A Sentence

Today we talked about John the Baptist’s ministry preparing the way for Jesus and how John called the people to not trust their heritage but to repent of their sins and follow God.

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?)

John The Baptist – Prepared the way for Jesus by calling people to repent (turn) from their sins.

Pharisees & Sadducees – Religious leaders. John told them that their heritage as Jews was not enough to save them, but they needed to repent like everyone else.

What does repent mean?

To turn away from sin.

When we turn away from sin (repent), who should be moving towards?

Jesus. Hebrews 12:2 tells us to keep our eyes fixed on Jesus the author and perfecter of our faith.
