This is lesson 10A of our study of Jesus for preschool. Jesus heals a man that can't hear or speak.
Jesus and His disciples were visiting different towns and they stopped at the Sea of Galilee. Jesus was healing and teaching the people. So many people wanted to see Jesus! They came to Him to be healed. Let’s learn about someone Jesus healed. (Mark 7:31-37)
There was a man that was deaf. That means he could not hear. The man was also mute. That means he could not talk. The people begged Jesus to heal him.
Jesus took the man and walked with him away from the crowd of people.
Jesus put His fingers in the man’s ear. Then, Jesus spit and touched his tongue! Jesus looked up into heaven and said “Be opened.”
Immediately the man could hear and talk! This is the first time he could talk, but he talked perfect! Jesus healed the man. A miracle is an act of God. Jesus did a miracle!
Jesus told the people not to tell anyone, but people were so excited about Jesus! Everyone that saw the miracles that Jesus did, wanted to tell their friends about His power. The people were so amazed to see His miracles!
The people said that Jesus could make the deaf hear and the mute be able to talk. The people said that “Jesus has done all things well.”
This sounds funny, but the students can put their fingers in the man's ears like Jesus did. They can pretend to spit and pull out this man's tongue. Of course, they thought this was funny and loved it! Directions are included. Click here to download.
