We’re looking at the whole Bible this week … don’t be concerned. We’re not reading the whole thing in one sitting or anything like that. It would just take too long, even though it’s a pretty good read. We’re actually looking at a passage in 2 Timothy that helps us see how vital God’s word is.

INTRODUCTION:

If we stacked every book in my house, it would probably be three times taller than the house. There are books everywhere, covering all sorts of topics. Ross and Naomi share a few of their favourites.

READ:

2 Timothy 3:10-17

You’ve probably heard of John 3:16. But what about 2 Timothy 3:16? It’s pretty good. While you’re at it, check out 1 John 3:16 too.

There are loads of great 3:16 passages.

WATCH:

What do you know about the Bible? This clever little clip might help explain it even more.

The Bible is pretty cool and all of it came from God. There are so many books, can you name them all? These farmers had loads of fun learning them. You can use their song to learn the books too.

DISCUSS:

  • Paul says heaps of stuff in this reading. Do you think he found being a follower of Jesus easy or hard? Why?
  • Is it easy or hard now?
  • What should we do about this? (there’s a hint in verse 14)
  • When should people start learning from the Bible?
  • Who wrote the book of 2 Timothy, Paul or God?
  • If the Bible is useful for rebuking, who should get rebuked: you or someone else?
  • How might knowing God’s word help you?

DO:

CRAFT

This looks fun and definitely shows that all scripture is God-breathed. It is from the ‘Crafting the Word of God’ website. Download and print, cut around the templates, colour them in and stick them together.

It is the face of Jesus. You can glue the Bible to the “air” and connect it to Jesus’ mouth to demonstrate his influence over the Bible.

Poke a hole in his mouth and you can even use your own breath to animate it.

ACTIVITY:

This should be heaps of fun. Make your own Bible Bingo and play it with the rest of the family. There are separate versions – one for the old testament and one for the new testament.

***** PRINT ACTIVITY NEW TESTAMENT BINGO LINK *****

Simply print the templates, cut around the edge of the various bingo mats (these list 25 OT and 16 NT books), then cut out the smaller tokens (36 OT and 21 NT). Draw them from a hat and shout bingo when you have four in a row.

COLOURING:

Here is a colouring page about the Bible. How many of these facts did you know?

***** PRINT ACTIVITY TEMPLATE LINK *****

Imagine how long it would take to write a book of the bible. Here is one of the authors at work. Colour him in.

Please share any of your completed crafts or activities on the StAKs Online Facebook page or email Ross and Naomi.

VERSE OF THE WEEK:

This is so much more fun when there’s a song you can learn too. This clip is a good example.

Here’s the verse:

2 Timothy 3:16-17

All Scripture is God breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness so that man of god many be thoroughly equipped for every good work

Last week’s verse:

Psalm 34:8

8 Taste and see that the Lord is good;
blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.

PRAY:

There are so many ways to pray. It’s great to spend time quietly with God, but sometimes short, quick prayers are all you can manage. That’s fine too.

Here’s a quick game you can play that will help you think of things to pray for. All you need is a balloon (when doing it inside) or a ball (definitely for outside).

Play volleyball. Each time the ball comes, hit it back and send God a one-word prayer.
