Parable of the Two Sons (Matthew 21) | Craft 2

 

In the parable of the Vineyard owner the men collect the grapes and that’s as simple as this craft linking idea is. It’s wonderfully open ended. Fill your bunch of grapes with coins that the men will be paid, scrunch tissue paper, dab paint, use glass beads or sequins, or anything you have on hand.

Parable of the Two Sons (Matthew 21) | Craft 1

 

In the parable of the Vineyard owner’s Two Sons the key idea is changing your mind. Visually a yes and no can be easily expressed through a thumbs up or thumbs down and that’s what this craft captures. It’s a really easy craft and you get a nice prop that the kid can use – the prototype came in quite handy for video calls! Parable of the Two Sons (Matthew 21) | Craft 1

Parable of the Two Sons (Matthew 21) | Story

 
Story notes based on Matthew 21 where Jesus tells the parable of the Vineyard owner asking his sons for help

Today’s hero is The Older Son because he shows us the gift of A Changed Mind

Essential Teachers notes:
This little parable packs a punch, here we have the vineyard owner again, but instead of looking for hired workers he’s asking his own sons to help out. The two sons both react very differently, in the moment they both tell the truth, one says no (or perhaps ‘I won’t’ or ‘I don’t want to’ dependant on your translation) but the other obeys. In that moment the good son is obvious. But as we see the words are empty, much like the religious leaders faith in the encounters. The challenge of this parable goes two ways, to act on your convictions and to be willing to recognise your errors and put them right. If you have older kids do delve into the question that the religious leaders hit pass on and why they may be afraid to stand behind John the Baptist.
