Things To Do Together
For Younger Kids: have them color the sheet of Jesus in the synagogue. Explain that a temple is similar to a church. It's where Jewish people gather to worship God, to learn about their faith, and to be in community together. Look at the symbols of David’s star, the candles, the scroll of the scripture. What is the same as our church? What is different?
For older kids: complete the fill in the blank sheet with the words from scripture. Then, roll both ends toward each other so it looks like a scripture scroll. Tell the kids this is what the scriptures looked like in Jesus time. Each book (Genesis, Isaiah, Deuteronomy) was a separate scroll. Research the Dead Sea Scrolls together and see what you find!
