Lesson Review – John 11:1-53 – Lazarus


Here are some review notes from this week’s lesson in our preschool and K-4 classes. This week we studied John 11:1-53 – Lazarus.

This is lesson 28 of 78 in our study of the New Testament. This lesson corresponds with Story 106 in The Gospel Story Bible and with Week 28 of the Old Story New family devotional.

Gospel Truth for Today

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?” (John 11:25-26)

The Lesson In A Sentence

After Jesus’ friend, Lazarus, died Jesus came to Bethany, raising him from the dead and showing that he was God.

Questions For You Kids

Who was Lazarus?

He was Mary and Martha’s brother and a friend of Jesus.

What happened to Lazarus?

He became sick and died.

Why did Martha want Jesus to come before her brother died?

Martha was aware that Jesus had healed many people. She knew that Jesus would have healed her brother. What she didn’t know was that Jesus’ power was greater than she thought; Jesus was not just a healer of the sick but the creator of life itself.

Why did Jesus raise Lazarus from the dead?

He raised Lazarus so that the people standing around watching would believe that he was God.

How are those who believe in Jesus like Lazarus?

One day everyone who believes in Jesus will rise again from the dead. All believers know that after we die we will live again with Jesus. (see “Gospel Truth” above.)

Praying Together

You can end your conversation with a short prayer thanking God for showing his power in raising Lazarus and for promising that when we die, if we believe in him, we will be raised to be with him forever.
