More Questions for Your Family:

If you want to spend more time talking about what you've learned - here are few more questions.

 

  • Jesus was fulfilling an Old Testament prophecy by riding a colt into Jerusalem. We saw the original prophecy in the verse from Zechariah. What are other Old Testament prophecies that Jesus fulfilled? (Here are a few that you can look up in your Bible: Micah 5:2, Isaiah 9:6, Isaiah 53:3)

 

  • The Jewish people thought that Jesus was coming to be their earthly king, that he would overthrow the Romans! But God had a very different plan for Jesus. Sometimes God’s plans don’t make sense to us. Can you share a time you couldn’t figure out what God was doing in your life but then you understood later? (Parents, this is a great time to share with your children about how God has worked in your life. Being open about your faith journey with your kids will help them see what a Christian walk is really like! It’s not always easy, but we can trust that God is always faithful.)
