Peter’s Defence (Acts 4) - Games


This is a story of a trial, an arrest for an act of kindness, a rough fisherman, filled with God’s spirit to speak eloquent words. These games take the idea of Jesus’s power being the foundation of Peter’s acts even though he was not present.

Peter’s Defence (Acts 4) | Craft


We had far too much fun playing with these little hats that remind us the power is not really ours, just as Peter’s defence stated the power was not really his, but from Jesus. We are all Jesus powered!

Warning: We know kidmin leaders will be the first to try wearing them… it’s tall but still kid sized!

Peter’s Defence (Acts 4) | Story

Peter's Defence (Acts 4) | Story

Essential Teachers notes:
Peter had healed a man using Jesus’s name. Nobody was going to say the healing was bad, but the authorities really didn’t like the mention of Jesus of Nazareth. This story of Peter and Johns arrest and the defence that Peter provided gives us a glimpse into the strange place the early believers inhabited, part of the Israelite nation but not an accepted part. This story uses the technique of repeating part of the last story as a recap before adding the next part.

Tell this story or a similar one of your choice from a favourite bible translation or story book. This version is supplied for inspiration, feel free to omit or embellish to give it your personal voice.

Main passage: Acts 4
Additional Passages: Acts 3.
