Angels Spoke To Mary & Joseph
This week, we began our Christmas unit. Our RADIUS Kids learned how angels announced the birth of Jesus to Mary and Joseph. God chose Mary and Joseph to be the earthly parents of Jesus by grace, not because of anything they did to deserve it. The baby Jesus fulfilled Isaiah’s prophecy, as well as other Old Testament prophecies, about the coming Savior. Through His life, death, and resurrection, Jesus fulfilled God’s plan of redemption that God started thousands of years before with Abraham in Genesis 12.
Family Conversations and Activities
Main Points from the Bible Story:
- An angel told Mary that God had chosen her to be Jesus’ mother.
- An angel told Joseph in a dream that Jesus, God’s Son, would rescue people from sin.
Family Discussion Starters:
- How do you think Mary and Joseph felt when they heard they would be Jesus’ parents?
- Who told Mary and Joseph about God’s plan? (an angel)
- Whom could you tell about Jesus’ birth?
- Why was Jesus born? Jesus was born to rescue us from sin.
- Read the Bible story to your kids as they act out the story. Remind your kids that Mary and Joseph were real people who lived long ago.
“For God so loved world that He gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)
