Godly Play I, II & III
And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men. Luke 2:52
Summary: During Lent, we are using a set of stories that walk through the life of Christ. They are called “Faces of Easter.” Last week, we focused on the “face” of Jesus as a newborn. This week, we will focus on the “face” of Jesus as a young boy in the temple.
I Wonder…: what you liked best about this story? what part is most important? what other stories this one reminds you of? what it was like for Jesus to be left at the temple?
Additional Followup: Talk about Jesus as a child. Wonder together about what He was like as a boy. I wonder what he experienced as he grew? I wonder if it is like what your child experiences? HERE is an interesting article about the temple (it’s also where the image below was found).
