Themes: Amazing, Challenges us

Why: to think about what Peter said about Jesus

With: paper, crayons

Duration time: 5 minutes

Description: 1 Fold a piece of paper into three parts for each child.

2 Say that Jesus is called different things in the Bible. Last time we thought about how Jesus is our friend. Can you think of any other friends that you have? Draw a picture of your friend on one part of the paper.

3 Sometimes Jesus is called ‘teacher’. Can you think of anything that Jesus teaches us? Can you think of anyone else who teaches you? Draw a picture of a teacher on another part of the paper.

4 Peter called Jesus ‘the Son of God’. Can you think of anyone else called that? No! It is only Jesus who is the Son of God. Peter was amazed when he realised that his friend and teacher was also the Son of God. Draw a picture of Jesus, the Son of God, on the final part of the paper.
