Activity to Teach Children the Bible’s Storyline

A fun activity that you can do with your children to teach them the storyline of the Old and New Testaments is to work with them to draw out the most significant events on paper or whiteboard.  Have the children think through the major milestones and then order them correctly.  Where appropriate, point out how the events before Jesus looked forward to His coming.  Here’s a New Testament example based on the collaboration of three children:

The events in this example include the birth of John and Jesus, Jesus’ time in Egypt, His childhood in Nazareth and visit to the temple at 12, His baptism and ministry along with the crucifixion, empty tomb and ascension.  The bottom briefly touches on Pentecost, Stephen’s stoning, Paul’s conversion and the planting of the church in Acts.
