Jesus and His Miracles

 www.biblefunforkids.com
 **This is an overview lesson on miracles. I picked several (not all) and combined into this one lesson, although there are a couple miracles that I did a whole lesson on. More Miracles of Jesus lessons will be added later.

 
(John 2:1-11) The first miracle of Jesus takes place at Cana in Galilee.

There was a wedding feast and sometimes they lasted up to 7 days! Jesus had 6 of His Disciples with Him and they had been traveling for 3 days.  Mary, His mother, told Jesus that there is no wine. And He said to her, Why should it concern me? There was 6 pots (big enough to hold 20-30 gallons each)

 
Jesus told the servants to fill them with water and then take some to the bridegroom. He said: Usually, people put out the good wine and keep the inferior wine for last, but this time you saved the best for last! Verse 11: This is the beginning of signs that Jesus did. AND His Disciples believed Him.
  
(John 4:46-48) The second miracle the Bible tells us that there was a nobleman that had a sick son. He went to Jesus and begged Him to go to Capernaum (about 20 miles away) to heal his son because he was dying. Jesus said that people wouldn’t believe in Him unless they saw Him do miracles. He told the man: “Go your way; your son lives.” So the man believed and left.
When he headed home, the servants met him and told him that his son lives! He asked them when his sons fever left and they told him about 1 PM. He realized that was when Jesus told him, “Your son lives.” So he and his whole household believed.
 
(John 5:5-9) There was also a man that had an sickness for 38 years. Jesus could tell that he was sick for a long time. He asked the man if he wanted to be healed and Jesus told him to “Rise, take up your bed and walk.” And immediately he was made well and walked away!
(Matthew 8:2-4; Mark 1:40-45; Luke 5:12-16) Jesus healed people with leprosy. That was a terrible disease back then. People that had this disease had to leave and live with others that had leprosy. If you touched someone that had it, then you would get it. They had to stay 6 feet away from people. While Jesus was traveling, a man came to Him that had leprosy. He fell with his face on the ground and begged Jesus to heal him if He was willing. Jesus told him He was willing and He was filled with compassion. He reached out and touched the man and He said “Be clean.” Immediately the leprosy was gone! Anyone else would have gotten the disease by touching the man, but not Jesus…He healed him!
(Luke 5:17-26) Now this miracle took some work to pull off! People knew about Jesus and wanted to see and hear Him. They were gathered on this day and there was a crowd and people were even standing outside the doors.
Jesus was preaching to them and there were 4 men that carried a paralyzed man on a mat and tried to take him to see Jesus.
 
They couldn’t get through the crowd, so they made an opening in the roof and lowered the mat right in front of Jesus.
  
 Jesus told him to take up his bed and go home. Immediately he stands up and takes the mat and is healed!

This is just a couple of the miracles that Jesus did. He healed so many people. He healed lepers. They were so contagious that the people had to live apart from everyone else and you couldn’t touch them or you’d get it. Jesus healed the blind and the deaf. He did them to prove to people who He was. The Apostles were able to perform miracles, and they could give a portion that ability to people. They were the only ones able to cure people by a miracle. Obviously, since those people are certainly dead now, that ability is dead also. The miracles were to prove who Jesus was.

I purchased these jars at Wal Mart in the artificial flower dept. They are small, but just over $1.00 and good for little hands. Since some can't tie yet, I had these ready as you see. There are several colors to pick from, so I had them on the front table, first come, first to pick! When they come to class, I have what they need on the front table and they know to pick one of each before they sit down. Hobby Lobby has some really cute ones I used the year before, but they were a lot more expensive this year. I have not seen any at Dollar Tree. Click here to print the tags (I used a square punch to cut them out) that help them to remember that this was the first miracle Jesus did.
