Lesson Review – Matthew 27:62-28:16


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 39 of 78 in our study of the New Testament. This lesson corresponds with Story 117 in The Gospel Story Bible and with Week 39 of the Old Story New family devotional.

Gospel Truth for Today

“If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain and your faith is in vain….If Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile and you are still in your sins” (1 Corinthians 15:13–14, 17).

The Lesson In A Sentence (or Two)

Even though Jesus truly rose from the dead, not everyone believes.

Questions for Discussion

What happened in the story today?

Jesus rose from the dead.

Did anyone see Jesus raise from the dead?

There were soldiers there and they were blinded by the light. Later, Jesus appeared to the women visiting the tomb. Also, God the Father and the angles saw it.

Even though they saw the resurrection, did the guards believe in Jesus?

No, they went and told the rulers and agreed to tell a lie that Jesus hadn’t raised from the dead.

Why is the resurrection important to us?

The resurrection proves that Jesus was who he said he was—God’s Son—and it demonstrates God’s power of sin and death. If Jesus rose from the dead, then all who trust in him can be risen and live with him forever in heaven.

Praying Together- Take time to pray with your child. Pray that you would both not just “know” about the resurrection, but that you would believe in the resurrection and the good news of the gospel.
