1 LESSON 2: JESUS, THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD, IS BORN Leader Guide for One Room Classroom: M y Classroom Luke 2: /06/2016 Teachers Dig In Dig In to the Bible Read: Luke 2:1-20 In This Passage: Mary and Joseph travel to Bethlehem to take part in a census. In those days, a census was merely a way of collecting more taxes. Because the law required it, they went to Bethlehem, and Jesus was born there. This fulfilled prophecies that the Messiah would be born in Bethlehem (see Micah 5:2). After Jesus was born, angels appeared to shepherds and told them the good news about the Savior s birth. The shepherds rushed to find and worship Jesus, and then they shared the good news with others. Bible Point: Jesus is the light of the world. Summary Verse: Glory to God in highest heaven, and peace on earth to those with whom God is pleased (Luke 2:14). Dig Deeper You ll Be Teaching: Jesus is the light of the world. Jesus came in the midst of a dark time. Although his birth wasn t extravagant, God s glory lit up the night sky when the angels proclaimed Jesus birth. And Jesus can light up the dark places in kids lives today! Think About: What feels dark in your life right now? Where do you need Jesus light? In what ways have you seen glimpses of Jesus light in the past? Dig In to Prayer Pray by name for kids who are living through dark times right now. Quick Tip Pair shares (kids answering a question with a partner) ensure everyone gets to talk and listen. If you want to hear kids answers, ask a few kids to report back after their pair share. 1 of 14

6 CORE BIBLE DISCOVERY The Night Jesus Was Born (Luke 2:1-20) [20 min] Bible music player CD or MP3 of quiet music small box or basket thick blanket 1 glow stick per child, plus 2 extras rubber bands to make a cross from glow sticks small bag of potting soil Easy Prep Darken the room as much as possible. Set up a box or basket as a manger. Crack two glow sticks, use rubber bands to bind them together in a cross shape, and set the cross in the manger. Put uncracked glow sticks around the cross. Cover the cross with a thick blanket to obscure the light. A Dark Night Turn off all the lights and darken the room as much as possible. Say: It s dark in our room, just like the night Jesus was born. Did you know there s another kind of darkness we can have in our lives? When we feel afraid, sad, confused, lonely, or far from God, it s like being in the dark. Have kids form groups of four or five to talk about this question. Ask: Tell about a time you experienced darkness by being afraid, lost, confused, or all alone. Before kids share, give your own example of a dark time, such as losing a job, moving away from friends or family, or facing an illness. Play music quietly while kids talk together. (This fills some of the background silence and makes it more comfortable for kids to share.) Say: When we go through dark times like the ones we ve talked about, we need Jesus, the light of the world. Angels Visit Shepherds Say: The Bible tells us that shepherds were out in a field that night, protecting their sheep from wild animals. Have kids imagine they are the shepherds in the dark field as you read aloud Luke 2:8-12, with expression. Turn on the lights. 6 of 14

7 Say: Wow! There s a bright light! I need your help celebrating this good news of Jesus, the light of the world. The angels did it with style, so let s do what they did. Read aloud Luke 2: Have kids pretend to be angels as they crouch and whisper Glory to God when your hand is low. Practice that. Have kids jump and shout Glory to God when your hand is high. Practice that. Say: There was one angel (hand low) And then more (hand medium) And then all the angels in heaven. (hand high) Do this again. Heading to the Manger Say: After the angels returned to heaven (turn off the lights), the shepherds hurried to find Jesus. And they found Jesus lying in the manger just as the angel had said. Listen to this! Read aloud Luke 2:6-7, and then have kids make baby crying sound effects. Say: Jesus God s Son had left heaven to come to earth. Ask: Call out words that describe what you imagine heaven is like. Say: Jesus left that perfect place to come to earth. And the first thing he experienced was a dirty stable. Pass around the bag of potting soil and have kids smell it. Ask: What would it be like to put a newborn baby in a dirty stable? Shining God s Light Have children gather around the manger. Say: Jesus was no ordinary baby Jesus is God! Jesus is the light of the world. Jesus came to show God s love to a world that was dark and smelly with sadness, fear, and sin. Pull back the blanket to show the glow cross. Let kids take turns looking inside the manger. Give children each a glow stick, but tell them not to crack it. Have kids go back to their groups of four or five. Ask: What do you want to do with the glow stick? Say: The shepherds wanted to share the news that Jesus is the light of the world! That s the most important news in the world! They ran and told everyone about Jesus, the light of the world. Let s do that now! Let kids crack their glow sticks and hold them up high. Light Party Tell kids to be the shepherds. They have 30 seconds to tell as many people as possible that Jesus is the light of the world. Ask: What just happened here? 7 of 14

8 Say: That was exciting! That s what happens when we share that Jesus is the light of the world. We can celebrate and share this amazing gift of God s love! 8 of 14

9 TALK-ABOUT VIDEO Karl, Light of the World [10 min] Karl, Light of the World teaching video (watch or download here) Discuss and Watch "Karl, Light of the World" Have kids get into groups of three. Say: Today we re going to watch a video about a guy who got confused about something that was said at church. In your group, tell about a time you got confused about something someone said it can be something you heard at church or someplace else. I ll go first. Share your own story about a time you were confused about what someone said. Take about a minute to share so you model the type of sharing you d like kids to do. Then invite children to share their own stories with their groups. Allow three minutes for sharing, and then have kids return their attention to you. Say: Let s watch our video and see what happens. Watch Karl, Light of the World. Say: Karl was confused about what the pastor at his church said. He thought the pastor said that Karl should be the light of the world, and Karl thought that meant wearing a funny sunshine costume. Ask: What did Karl get wrong when he thought he was the light of the world? Allow another three minutes for kids to share in their groups, and then invite a few kids to share their answers with the larger group. Ask: We know that Jesus is the light of the world, not us. But how can we show Jesus light in the world? Say: Jesus is the light of the world! We have the great opportunity to reflect the light and love of Jesus to others so they can experience that light and love, too. 9 of 14

10 HIGH-ENERGY GAME Light of the World Tag [10 min] flashlight small lamp (optional) Easy Prep If your room doesn t have any windows, consider turning on a small lamp to one side of the room for safety. Recommended for 6 or more kids. Set Up the Game Choose a child to be Darkness. Choose another child to be The Light of the World, and have him or her stand on one side of the room, holding a flashlight. Tell him or her to be careful not to shine the light directly into anyone s face. Have the rest of the children spread around the room. Play the Game Have kids move around the room using only baby steps. When children are tagged by Darkness, they must freeze and crouch down on the floor, waiting for The Light of the World to shine the flashlight on them. When the light shines on them, they re free to stand and can continue playing. If a younger child is The Light of the World, help him or her shine the flashlight on children who ve been tagged. The Light of the World can t be tagged by Darkness. The game starts when the lights go off and ends when the lights come back on. After a few minutes of play, choose different children to be Darkness and The Light of the World, and repeat the game. Talk About It Have kids sit in a circle. Ask: What would the game have been like without The Light of the World? What would our world be like without Jesus the true light of the world? 10 of 14

11 Say: Jesus is the light of the world. Without him, we would live in darkness. But Jesus is more powerful than the darkness. His light can never be stopped. Have kids each think about a friend or family member who would be encouraged by Jesus power over darkness. Let kids pray silently for those people, asking God to shine Jesus light into their lives. 11 of 14

12 DEEPER BIBLE Does God Have Favorites? [15 min] Bibles candy or other treat for each child Wonder Read aloud Luke 2: Repeat the end where it says with whom God is pleased. Say: This verse makes it sound like God is going to give peace to only those people he likes. Does God have favorites? Let s dig in to that. Favorite Kids Choose a few of the kids as your favorites. Have your favorites come to you and get candy or another treat. Let your favorites eat their candy up front, and ask the other kids: What s this activity like for you? Ask the favorite kids: What was this activity like for you? Ask everyone: Do you think this is the way God treats people? Explain. Have the favorites rejoin the rest of the kids. Give everyone candy. Peace on Earth Say: Some of you probably didn t have a very peaceful feeling about that experience. Tell the kids about a time you felt God s peace. Ask: Turn to a partner and share about a time you felt peaceful. Say: That peaceful feeling is like God s love filling your heart. True peace can only come from God. Jesus came to show God s love and to give us true peace because Jesus is the light of the world. Look at Verse Context Tell kids to listen to a Bible verse so they can answer this question: According to this verse, who is God s good news for? Have an older child read Luke 2:10. Ask: According to this verse, who is God s good news for? Look at Other Verses Tell kids to listen to a Bible verse so they can answer this question: What do these verses show you about favorites? Have an older child read Acts 10: of 14

13 Ask: What do these verses show you about favorites? Based on these verses, who can receive God s peace? Summarize Say: Everyone is special to God, and peace is available for everyone. Jesus is the light of the world, not just parts of it! What this verse is really saying is: Glory to God in the highest, and peace and good will toward all people on earth. 13 of 14

14 LIFE APPLICATION WRAP-UP Light Prayers [5 min] glow cross* glow sticks* markers sticky notes Listen to God Darken the room, and set the glow cross in the middle of the room. Say: Jesus is the light of the world. That means he came to show God s love to everyone. Now that you ve heard about Jesus light, you can shine it to people around you. Take a moment to silently ask God about what he might want you to do to show his love to people around you. Listen to hear what God might say to you. Allow about one minute for kids to sit in the dark, quiet room and silently listen to God. Light Prayers Explain that sometimes we hear God s voice, and sometimes we get a feeling in our hearts. Sometimes God brings a picture or name or word to our minds. Have children each write or draw on a sticky note what they just heard from God. Let kids know that it s okay if they don t hear from God. If they didn t they can write a prayer to God instead. After they re done, have children each stick their notes around the cross so that the light of the cross shines on their notes. Ask kids to return to their seats, and then have them silently pray for the courage to show God s love and share about Jesus, the light of the world. Say: Thank you for being here today. This week you can be like the shepherds who shared about Jesus. Hold your glow stick up high. Pause. You can share God s love and light with the people around you. Thank kids for coming, and tell them you look forward to seeing them next week. The Life of Jesus, Lesson 2: Jesus, the Light of the World, Is Born.
