Lesson Review – Matthew 14:25-34 – Jesus Walks on Water


Here are some review notes from this week’s lesson in our preschool and K-4 classes. This week we studied John 6:1-15 – Jesus Feeds the Multitude.

This is lesson 21 of 78 in our study of the New Testament. This lesson corresponds with Story 99 in The Gospel Story Bible and with Week 21 of the Old Story New family devotional.

Gospel Truth for Today

Jesus saved Peter from drowning in the storm and Jesus can save us too!

The Lesson In A Sentence

After seeing Jesus walk to them on the water, in the midst of a storm, the disciples were more than amazed—they worship Jesus.

Questions For You Kids

What scared the disciples when they were in the middle of the storm?

They saw a person walking towards them on the water. They thought it was a ghost. But, it was really Jesus.

Why did they think Jesus was a ghost?

They could see that it was Jesus, but they didn’t understand that Jesus was God and all powerful over heave and earth.

What did Peter do when he saw Jesus?

He said that if it really was Jesus that he should ask him to come out to him. So, Jesus told Peter to come out on the water. Then, Peter got out of the boat and started walking on water too! But, then he took his eyes off Jesus and started to get scared. He began to sink. But, Jesus saved him!

What did the disciples do when Jesus got in the boat?

The worship him and said, “Truly you are the Son of God.” (Matthew 14:33)

So, Jesus saved Peter. How does Jesus save us?

Parents, use whatever answer your child gives to lead the discussion to how our sin (breaking God’s good commands) separates us from God and that we deserve to be punished by God for breaking His rules. But, Jesus followed God’s good commands perfectly and never broke any of God’s good rules and yet he chose to be punished for us, by dying on the cross. When we believe in him, God sees all our sin as being punished in Jesus and we get Jesus’ perfect record. So, Jesus “saves us” from the punishment we deserve.
