A Closer Look at the Bible Content for VBS 2018

DAY 1: Jesus Cares About Me

Bible Story: The Lost Sheep (Luke 15:1-7)

This passage will serve to establish who Jesus is. As a parable, it begins with the basic starting point of acknowledging Jesus as Teacher, but quickly moving along to reveal that Jesus is so much more! Through this Bible story, kids will discover that they are valuable and important to God. He loves them more than anything. He wants sinners to repent and be brought to Him.

DAY 2: Jesus Gives Me Hope

Bible Story: The Resurrection of Lazarus (John 11:1-44)

This Bible story sets up who Jesus is, what He can do because He is God’s Son (raise the dead), and what He will do for us (die, then live again). This passage also emphasizes the hope we have that we will one day be resurrected to live forever with Him. 

DAY 3: Jesus Helps Me Believe

Bible Story: Thomas Believed (John 20:19-31)

This passage is somewhat of a “Part 2” of the Day 2 Bible story. On Day 2 we saw Jesus foreshadow His coming resurrection and now on Day 3, He’s done it and we’re privy to the aftermath. Thomas believes immediately upon seeing the risen Christ. This is an eyewitness account/first person testimony … a strong apologetic. We can believe because of this. 

 

DAY 4: Jesus Loves Me

Bible Story: John Wrote About Jesus (John 13:1-35; 19:25-27; 20:1-10; 21:1-14)

John refers to himself as “the disciple whom Jesus loved.” Because he experienced Jesus’ love in such strong and personal ways, John was sensitive to those words and actions of Jesus that illustrated how the One who is love loved others. This Bible story will encapsulate the personal story of John’s relationship with Jesus through four key events. John was loved by Jesus, was witness to Jesus’ acts of love (great and small), and wrote about God’s great love for us in his books. Kids can come to recognize the immense love Jesus has for them through the eyes of someone who experienced it firsthand. 

 

DAY 5: Jesus Gives Me Joy

Bible Story: Paul and Silas in Prison (Acts 16:23-34)

Joy is different than happiness. It transcends circumstances and it comes from a source that is separate from ourselves (God). Paul and Silas could experience joy in the midst of a dark jail cell because they were tapped into the Source of all joy … and their response to adversity was praising God. Kids will discover that regardless of their circumstances, they can praise God/Jesus and experience joy!
