Christ the King (John 18) Games


Kingship is quite a simple concept to describe to children on one level. It’s the idea that one person has the authority to make decisions for others. Like so many thinkgs Jesus turns this Kingship idea on it’s head. By the time we reach the passage with Pilate it certainly doesn’t feel a very kingly setting. Jesus is seen at one of the weakest moments, he’s arrested, questioned like a criminal , and about to be sentenced to die by the brutal execution process of crucifixion. It may seem tempting to act out this passage but playing the role of one who thought they had authority over Jesus, or Jesus himself is a lot for anyone to take on. These games skit the passage, look at it sideways and spark conversations.

Who am I? – Also known as the Sticky Note game. Write the name of someone the child will know and stick it to their forehead. The child then has to guess who they are by asking questions that can only be answered with a yes or no.

Essential Teachers notes:
As we finish our cycle through the lectionary it’s important to help kids learn this anchor of our year. We start with the birth of our saviour and end with the acknowledgement of his eternal kingship. This passage centres around Pilots question about Jesus’s earthly claim to kingship and how his divine kingship is misunderstood.
