Today’s hero is the lamp lighter, because he shows us the gift of LIGHT.

Essential Teachers notes:
This is a story rather than a biblical retelling. It is recorded that Antioch had street-lighting in the early centuries so it’s not a big jump to assume there would have been a lamp lighter. It’s also assumed that people had started to scribble down the words of Jesus before the gospels were compiled. By attaching a face to this story it makes it easier for children to relate to the central teaching it contains. It also highlights how God uses ordinary people and professions.

Main Passage : Luke 11:33-36
Alternative Passages : Luke 8:16-18, Matthew 5:14–15, Mark 4:21–25

Herod the Great (Matthew 2) | Play


Herod the Great really does epitomize the darker side of the Christmas story and his choices were down-right morally offensive. These games therefore look more at the elements of choice, clues and searches. The first two games here use a card set that can be found by clicking on the picture. If you are teaching Herod alongside the Magi then the games for the Magi can be found by clicking HERE

Match it – This is similar to the popular ‘Dobble’ or ‘Spot it’ where cards are dealt to two players and upon turning the top card over one symbol one each card will match. the first player to identify this match wins both cards until one player runs out of cards. Link to Herod looking at clues and signs to help the Magi find Jesus.

For the play post this time round there are a couple of games that requie this set of cards. There are 21 cards in total spaced over 3 pages of printout. They are designed like the popular game ‘Dobble’ or ‘Spot it’ but have only 5 images rather than the usual 8. Every card in the pack had one image in common with another card.

Though these little baubles are linked to the Herod the Great lesson they are suitable for any Christmas lesson as there are 3 different designs – The Magi & Herod, the Shepherd & Angel and Mary & Joseph. Including Herod on our Christmas decorations reminds us of the darkness that came with the joy, the strife that accompanied The Prince of Peace arriving. Herod the Great (Matthew 2) | Make 1
