Tough Questions (Matthew 22) | Games


The Pharisees and Sadducees, two groups we love to paint as the bad guys, but amongst the bad apples were men seeking God, even if they were misguided.

Essential Teachers notes:
Children are far too familiar with questions, they can be good or bad, they can hold promises or expectations or traps. It’s both encouraging and reassuring therefore to teach this lesson about Jesus being faced with tough questions and to look into his answers. Be sure to follow up with some open questions that may have a right answer and a wrong answer as well as a best answer.

Main Passage : Matthew 22
Additional passages : Exodus 3.
