Questions and Answers
To introduce the Bible to a young child at Easter, let them tell you what questions they have that they want to know about Jesus' dying for their sins. You can then find scripture to answer those questions. You will both learn from these special times searching the Bible for answers for your child.
The Living Giving Bible
During Easter and all year long the Bible has messages that teach children about giving. Jesus gave His life so we are saved by the shedding of His blood. Children of all ages can learn giving to others less fortunate than themselves by reading Acts where the people who had more than what they needed gave to others who needed what was given to them. Children get messages all through the Bible for Easter and other holidays to bring the relationship with Jesus closer and more meaningful to their lives.
If your child has a Biblical name, find it in the pages and read those verses to make Bible reading more personal for him or her. You, your spouse and child will be enriched with Bible reading anytime.
