Bible Lessons

The Lord’s servant must [be] . . . able to teach. . . . God may perhaps grant . . . repentance leading to a knowledge of the truth, and they may come to their senses and escape from the snare of the devil, after being captured by him to do his will (2 Timothy 2:24–26).

Each lesson supplies the written-out Scripture for the story, the Bible story itself, “Lessons from This Lesson,” “Activities,” memory verse[s], a suggestion for handwork, and visual aids.

Although over 250 lessons are posted on this website, many Bible stories are yet to be posted. The Lord willing, the gaps will be filled by adding one or two lessons each week. May you find the existing lessons helpful.

Originally these lessons, including visual aids, were designed to be printed out. Therefore, in order to make the pictures as large as possible, many were rotated to fit a landscape orientation.
