Jesus in Every Book of the Bible

Happy New Week!

This week's post is about finding Jesus in every book of the Bible.

Whilst growing up, I learnt a lot of biblical songs that have continued to shape my life positively. There are times that the biblical songs and stories have aided my understanding of scriptures.  
Today's write-up will be beneficial for parents, parents-to-be, carers and Sunday School teachers.

Do you know that there are creative ways that you can teach the children about Jesus?

Buy pictorial bible for your children and spend time to learn fun ways that your children can learn the Bible. You can use flashcards, watch movies together, compose biblical songs together, give them regular homework, get them to also tell you stories from the Bible, get your children to be the teachers, this will help you to assess their understanding, set healthy competitions, let them participate in quiz, word puzzles, drawing, bible charades, and other biblical games.

As a child, I had the opportunity to memorise the books of the Bible through a church competition. Prizes were given to the winners. I was given a Bible bookmark for the books of the Bible, I learned how to open my Bible very fast using the bookmark.

Every child should have a Bible bookmark for the books of the Bible as it would help them to learn and memorise the books of the Bible.

I have a task for you. Can you attempt to learn the books of the Bible below?

You and your children or your Sunday School class can create time to learn the below. Give them two to four weeks to learn it, award first, second and third prize to the children that were able to recite it confidently.

  1. I have been blessed by God by finding your website today.

    I wonder if you would be interested in dialoging with me on a pondering of mine.

    I am now approaching sixty five years of age and I have believed in Jesus and known of His love for me ever since I was five years old. Although I have made some serious mistakes in my life, the Lord continues to show Himself ever faithful to me.

    As Christians, it seems to me that we take for granted that God is real and alive, that He created everything out of nothing and everything in the universe remains on the course that He set it to when He first created it all. God made clear to me early last year that of all His powers, the greatest force in the universe is love – His love. Then all of a sudden I found myself trying to wrap my mind around the reality of God’s love.

    God is the only one like Himself. He was not voted into His place as God. There was no line-up of candidates with Him being chosen from among a number, all with varying characteristics. And wonder of wonders, our God, the only God there is, ever was, and ever will be is a God of love. God is love. And this is my query – should we not marvel over how the ruler of the whole universe is the true source of wonderful, mind boggling love, rather that any combination of personality traits that exist in the human rulers in the earth?

    Is this making any sense at all? I would appreciate any response the Lord lays on your heart to share with me. My query may not have an answer in this life, but I still feel compelled to seek other believers in God to correspond with on this topic.

    Your sister in Christ Jesus,
