Level 1 Lesson Plan: Paul, the Teacher

Here is a lesson plan that can be covered in 30 to 45 minutes, relating to the lesson objectives: “Be able to list Jesus’ twelve disciples who followed Him while He was on earth, and the role that they played in helping Jesus in His mission,” and “learn of some of the lives of the great men and women of the Bible.” (Christian Life and Faith: Biblical and Christian Foundation: Discipleship-1b; and Christian Life and Faith: Witnessing and Missionary Training: Great Men and Women of God-1a

Read The Acts of the Apostles: Sleeping in Class.”

Read The Acts of the Apostles: I Have Kept the Faith.”

Listen to the audio “New Testament.”

Do you know which books in the New Testament were written by Paul? (Answer: Romans, 1st and 2nd Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, 1st and 2nd Thessalonians, 1st and 2nd Timothy, Titus, and Philemon. Also, he might have written the book of Hebrews. Paul’s writings are often referred to as “letters,” because these are recordings of letters he sent to individuals and groups of Christians he was teaching.)

Memorize or review a verse from “Crazily Cool Cards Set: Sharing God’s Love.” Talk about how Paul obeyed Jesus’ request in Matthew 28:19–20. (For example, Paul traveled to various cities and countries to teach people about Jesus. He taught not only in person but also through his writings.)

Do you know where Paul received the power to be such a faithful witness and teacher about Jesus? (You can find the answer in “The Gift of the Holy Spirit.” See here for a further study on the Holy Spirit.)

Level 1 Lesson Plan: Introducing Paul the Apostle

Here is a lesson plan that can be covered in 30 to 45 minutes, relating to the lesson objectives: “Be able to list Jesus’ twelve disciples who followed Him while He was on earth, and the role that they played in helping Jesus in His mission,” and “learn of some of the lives of the great men and women of the Bible.” (Christian Life and Faith: Biblical and Christian Foundation: Discipleship-1b; and Christian Life and Faith: Witnessing and Missionary Training: Great Men and Women of God-1a)

Read Faith-filled Models from the New Testament: Paul the Apostle” and November Hero of the Month: Paul the Apostle.” If the children are unfamiliar with the martyrdom of Stephen, read about Stephen from the story found in Acts 7:1–60. You can find a simple visualization of the story here.

Did you know that “The Feast of Saint Stephen” is celebrated in some countries on the 26th of December, the day after Christmas, to honor Stephen as the first Christian martyr?

Listen to An Audio Bible Adventure: A Rabbi Sees the Light.

ColorColoring Page: The Acts of the Apostles: The Road to Damascus.” You might also like to assemble this 3D picture, “3D Picture: The Acts of the Apostles: The Road to Damascus.”

Do you know why the book of Acts uses the names of both “Saul” and “Paul” for the same man? “But Saul, who was also called Paul…” (Acts 13:9 ESV). Saul was his name in Hebrew. Paul was his name in Latin, the language of the Roman Empire.

ReadThe Acts of the Apostles: Saul Escapes in a Basket.” To give the children a fuller study of this story, you can also read with them Acts 9:8–25. There is also a coloring page and a 3D picture that accompanies this story.

Ask the children if they can think of another Bible story that has to do with someone being lowered from the top of a house. (See “A Plan to Help a Friend.”)

More to come later covering more of Paul’s exciting adventures!
