Lesson Review – John 10:22-30 – Jesus Claims to be God


Here are some review notes from this week’s lesson in our preschool and K-4 classes. This week we studied John 10:22-30 – Jesus Claims to be God.

This is lesson 26 of 78 in our study of the New Testament. This lesson corresponds with Story 104 in The Gospel Story Bible and with Week 26 of the Old Story New family devotional.

Gospel Truth for Today

Jesus is the Good Shepherd who, though God, laid down his life for his sheep.

The Lesson In A Sentence

The people became angry and wanted to kill Jesus because he claimed to be God.

Questions For You Kids

In today’s lesson, Jesus said something that really upset the crowd. What was it?

Jesus said, “I and the Father are one.” (John 10:30)

What did the crowd try to do when they heard Jesus? Why?

They tried to capture him and kill him. Because they didn’t believe Jesus was God.

Do you believe that Jesus is God?

Yes – If your child says yes, encourage them in this expression of faith.

No or I Don’t Know – If your child does not answer with a yes, use it as an opportunity to explain why you believe that Jesus is God.

Your lesson talked about Jesus being like a shepherd. Do you remember what Jesus said about his sheep?

If your child is unsure, give them a hint, “it is in the Bible verse you are memorizing for class.” Jesus said that he knows his sheep and that they hear his voice and follow him. (John 10:27)

Who are his sheep?

Anyone who believes Jesus and follows him.

How do we hear Jesus’ voice and follow him?

We hear Jesus through God’s word, the Bible. There are many ways to “follow him” that you can affirm from your child’s answer. Use it as a springboard to “follow him” in faith, believing in his death in our place for our sin and resurrection.

Praying Together

You can end your conversation with a short prayer asking God to help you hear Jesus’ voice and to follow him. You can also thank God for his promises in John 10:27-28 that if we are Jesus’ sheep, no one can take us from him.
