Lesson Review – Acts 1:1-14 – The Ascension


Here are some review notes from this week’s lesson in our preschool and K-4 classes. This week we studied John 12:10-50 – Triumphal Entry. This is lesson 43 of 78 in our study of the New Testament. This lesson corresponds with Story 121 in The Gospel Story Bible and with Week 43 of the Old Story New family devotional.

Gospel Truth for Today

Jesus’ physical earthly ministry is complete and he has ascended to the Father. He now sends his disciples to take the good news of his death and resurrection to the whole world.

The Lesson In A Sentence (or Two)

After revealing himself to his disciples and many others for 40 days, Jesus bodily ascends to heaven and sends his disciples to await the power of the Holy Spirit before they take the gospel to the ends of the earth.

Questions for Discussion

What do you think it would have been like to see Jesus float up into the sky?

Accept any answer.

Where did Jesus go when He was lifted up?

Jesus went back to His Father in heaven.

What do we learn about Jesus from this passage?

No mere man can simply lift himself up into the heavens. Jesus was all-powerful God who surely defeated death in rising from the dead. He is more than a mere man.

What helped the disciples believe?

Jesus opened their minds. Even today there are people who hear all about Jesus but still refuse to believe because they see no connection to themselves. Jesus, by the Holy Spirit, still needs to open the minds of people today so they can believe.

Praying Together-Pray with your child, ask God for faith to believe and the joy would overflow in telling others the good news of Jesus.
