Memory Verse: Acts 1:8

Bible Truth: Jesus did not leave us alone.

1. Open in prayer

2. Introduction
The Feast of Weeks is also know as the Feast of Pentecost. Pentecost is a Greek word for fifty. It was during the Feast of Weeks that the Holy Spirit was given to believers. Fifty days after the resurrection of Jesus, the Holy Spirit came to dwell in believers.

Acts 2:1-4 NKJV
“When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.
And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house were they were sitting. Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. And they were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.”

4. Memory Verse

Acts 1:8 NKJV
“But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”

5. Jesus Appears To Mary

John 20:1-2 NKJV
“Now the first day of the week Mary Magdalene went to the tomb early, while it was still dark, and saw that the stone had been taken away from the tomb. Then she ran and came to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and said to them, “They have taken away the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid Him.”

Early Sunday morning Mary Magdalene went to the tomb of Jesus and found the stone rolled away. She ran and told the disciples and they returned with her to the empty tomb. After the disciples left the tomb she stayed behind looking into the tomb. Two angels appeared to Mary and asked her why she was crying. As soon as she told them she heard a voice behind her. Turning around, Mary saw a man who asked her the same question, “Why are you crying?”

John 20:3-15 NKJV
“Peter therefore went out, and the other disciple, and were going to the tomb. So they both ran together, and the other disciple outran Peter and came to the tomb first. And he, stooping down and looking in, saw the linen cloths lying there; yet he did not go in. Then Simon Peter came, following him, and went into the tomb; and he saw the linen cloths lying there,
and the handkerchief that had been around His head, not lying with the linen cloths, but folded together in a place by itself.
Then the other disciple, who came to the tomb first, went in also; and he saw and believed. For as yet they did not know the Scripture, that He must rise again from the dead. Then the disciples went away again to their own homes. But Mary stood outside by the tomb weeping, and as she wept she stooped down and looked into the tomb. And she saw two angels in white sitting, one at the head and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain. Then they said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping?” She said to them, “Because they have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have laid Him.” Now when she had said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, and did not know that it was Jesus. Jesus said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?” She, supposing Him to be the gardener, said to Him, “Sir, if You have carried Him away, tell me where You have laid Him, and I will take Him away.”

Mary thought this man was the gardener, however after He began to speak, she realized that He was Jesus. Mary was so excited that she wanted to reach out and touch Jesus. But Jesus told her not to touch Him because He had not ascended to heaven yet. Jesus asked Mary to go and tell the disciples and tell them that He was going to the Father in heaven.

John 20:17 NKJV
“Jesus said to her, “Do not cling to Me, for I have not yet ascended to My Father; but go to My brethren and say to them, ‘I am ascending to My Father and your Father, and to My God and your God.’”

6. Game – People Shuffle

Acts 1:8 NKJV
“But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”

Divide the memory verse up into parts. Make 2 sets of card with the memory verse dived up on them, each set a different color.

EXAMPLE:
/ “But you / shall receive / power when / the Holy / Spirit has / come upon / you; and / you shall / be witnesses / to Me / in Jerusalem, / and in / all Judea / and Samaria, / and to / the end / of the earth.” / Acts 1:8 NKJV /

For the above example you will need two teams of eighteen children. Divide to memory verse up according to the group size.

Divide the group into two teams. Tape a card on each of the children’s backs. At the signal they are to find their team (each team’s cards are a different color) and arrange themselves so that the verse can be correctly read (in order). The first team to do so correctly is the winner.

7. Jesus Presents His Blood In Heaven
After speaking to Mary, Jesus went to the temple in heaven and presented His own blood as a sacrifice for all the sins of every person. Later that day, Jesus returned to earth and appeared to His disciples. Jesus showed them the scars on His hands and His feet.

John 20:19-25 NKJV
Then, the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples
were assembled, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and said to them, “Peace be with you.”
When He had said this, He showed them His hands and His side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord.
So Jesus said to them again, “Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you.”
And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit.
If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.”
Now Thomas, called the Twin, one of the twelve, was not with them when Jesus came.
The other disciples therefore said to him, “We have seen the Lord.” So he said to them, “Unless I see in His hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe.”

Thomas, one of Jesus’ disciples, had not been with the other disciples when Jesus appeared to them. When he arrived they told him about Jesus appearing and the scars on Him. Thomas did not really believe them. He made the comment the he would not believe it was Jesus unless he could actually touch the scars for himself.

John 20:26-28 NKJV
“And after eight days His disciples were again inside, and Thomas with them. Jesus came, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, “Peace to you!” Then He said to Thomas, “Reach your finger here, and look at My hands; and reach your hand here, and put it into My side. Do not be unbelieving, but believing.” And Thomas answered and said to Him, “My Lord and my God!”

Eight days later Jesus appeared to the disciples again. This time Thomas was with them. Jesus stood in front of Thomas and told him to touch His scars. Thomas immediately believed it truly was Jesus.

8. Game – Ping Pong Ball Tic-Tac-Toe
Need: Nine glasses (or jars), ping pong balls (two different colors)

Set glasses up in a grid of three glasses in three rows.
Divide group into two teams.

One player at a time, and alternating teams, they must bounce a ping-pong ball into a grid of glasses and try to get it in a glass. Only one bounce per person each turn. The team that gets three in a row first is the winner.

9. Ascension To Heaven – 40 Days After Resurrection

Acts 1:1-3 NKJV
“The former account I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach, until the day in which He was taken up, after He through the Holy Spirit had given commandments to the apostles whom He had chosen, to whom He also presented Himself alive after His suffering by many infallible proofs, being seen by them during forty days and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God.”

For forty days after His resurrection Jesus stayed on the earth appearing to many different people and teaching them many different truths. Jesus gave the disciples the command to go into all the world and make disciples. We call this commandment “The Great Commission.” After Jesus gave the command, He told them that they would receive power to be His witnesses.

Acts 1:4-8 NKJV
“And being assembled together with them, He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, “which,” He said, “you have heard from Me; for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.” Therefore, when they had come together, they asked Him, saying, “Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” And He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority. But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”

As soon as He spoke that He began to float up into heaven. Those standing there watch Jesus go out of sight. Then two angels appeared to them and told them that Jesus would return to earth the same way He left.

Acts 1:9-11 NKJV
“Now when He had spoken these things, while they watched, He was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight.
And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel,
who also said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven.”

Prior to Jesus’ crucifixion He told His disciples that He would send the Holy Spirit, however they really did not understand Him.

John 14:26 NKJV
“But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.”

John 14:16 NKJV
“And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever”

John 15:26 NKJV
“And you also will bear witness, because you have been with Me from the beginning.”

Jesus knew that the time was soon approaching when He would not physically be with His disciples any longer. He wanted them to know that He would send them another counselor to them. Jesus even told them that it was to their advantage that He go away.

John 16:7 NKJV
“Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you.”

Jesus told His disciples to go to Jerusalem to wait for the Holy Spirit, the gift that God had promised.

10. Game – Up In The Air
Need balloons (already blown up)

Mark out a start and a turn around line. Divide the group into two teams and have them form two lines. Give the first person on each team a balloon. At the signal the first person will run to the turn around mark and then back to their team, while keeping the balloon in the air by gently tapping it. They will pass the balloon to the next person in line and they will repeat the process. The team that finishes first is the winner.

11. Jesus’ Promise Is Given
Thousands of Jews had journeyed to Jerusalem to celebrate the Feast of Weeks. It was during this time that Jesus’ followers obeyed His words and went to a room where they waited for the promised helper.

Acts 2:1-4 NKJV
“When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.”

For ten days for the true followers of Jesus were in an upper room waiting and praying. On the tenth day, the sound of a mighty rushing wind filled the room where they were. The Holy Spirit filled the upper room where the early believers were waiting. Tongues of fire appeared over each of their heads, and they all began to speak in different languages. They began to worship God in the foreign languages that were spoken and understood by the Jews that had come to Jerusalem for the feast.

Acts 2:5-12 NKJV
“And there were dwelling in Jerusalem Jews, devout men, from every nation under heaven.
And when this sound occurred, the multitude came together, and were confused, because everyone heard them speak in his own language. Then they were all amazed and marveled, saying to one another, “Look, are not all these who speak Galileans? And how is it that we hear, each in our own language in which we were born? Parthians and Medes and Elamites, those dwelling in Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya adjoining Cyrene, visitors from Rome, both Jews and proselytes, Cretans and Arabs—we hear them speaking in our own tongues the wonderful works of God.” So they were all amazed and perplexed, saying to one another, “Whatever could this mean?”

Jesus’ followers had been baptized with the Holy Spirit. The people in Jerusalem heard Jesus’ followers declaring the wonders of God in many different languages. The Holy Spirit came Jesus’ followers and empowered them to witness. They left the upper room full of power and proclaimed the gospel of Jesus Christ with boldness.

12. Game – Moving Tic Tacs
Need: four bowls, ten tic tacs, two pair of tweezers

Each team will need two bowls, five tic tacs and a pair of tweezers. Place five tic tacs in one bowl of each team.

Divide the group into two teams. Line the teams up – each in front of their set of bowls. At the signal the first person on each team will use tweezers to relocate the five Tic Tacs from one bowl to another. When they finish they will give the tweezers to the next player on their team. The team that finishes first is the winner.

13. Worship Song – _______________________________

14. Challenge and Altar
Each one of us are to share the message of Christ with those who do not know Christ as Savior. There are many people have never heard about God and how much He loves them. They don’t know that God gave His Son, Jesus for us. And they don’t know Jesus died on a cross for their sins. How will they ever know unless someone tells them?

Matthew 28:19 NKJV
“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age. Amen.”

God does not want anyone to be lost so He has commanded us to tell them the good news. Each of us have the responsibility to go and make disciples. We should witness out of obedience and because of the need to spread the gospel. We should not worry about acceptance or rejection, because God draws the person to Him by the power of the Holy Spirit, not us. Remember, power to witness is available to everyone.

Acts 1:8 NKJV
“But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”

Allow the children time to pray.

1.) ______________________________________________

2.) ______________________________________________

4. Memory Verse

Matthew 26:16 NKJV

“So from that time he sought opportunity to betray Him.”

5. The Plot Against Jesus

Jesus had ministered for 3 years and He had made several enemies among the Jewish leaders. They did not believe that He was the Son of God. They wanted Him killed, so they plotted how they could do it without turning the people against them. One of Jesus’ disciples, Judas, agreed to point Jesus out to them.

Matthew 26:36-47 NKJV

“Then Jesus came with them to a place called Gethsemane, and said to the disciples, “Sit here while I go and pray over there.” And He took with Him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and He began to be sorrowful and deeply distressed.
Then He said to them, “My soul is exceedingly sorrowful, even to death. Stay here and watch with Me.” He went a little farther and fell on His face, and prayed, saying, “O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will.” Then He came to the disciples and found them sleeping, and said to Peter, “What! Could you not watch with Me one hour? Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”
Again, a second time, He went away and prayed, saying, “O My Father, if this cup cannot pass away from Me unless I drink it, Your will be done.” And He came and found them asleep again, for their eyes were heavy. So He left them, went away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same words. Then He came to His disciples and said to them, “Are you still sleeping and resting? Behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of Man is being betrayed into the hands of sinners.
Rise, let us be going. See, My betrayer is at hand.” And while He was still speaking, behold, Judas, one of the twelve, with a great multitude with swords and clubs, came from the chief priests and elders of the people.”

In the pre-dawn hours of Friday morning, while Jesus was in the Garden, Judas lead a group of soldiers to Jesus and the disciples. Judas knew that he would find Jesus there. Judas went up to Jesus and kissed Him – Judas had told the religious leaders that the one he kissed would be Jesus.

Matthew 26:48-50 NKJV

“Now His betrayer had given them a sign, saying, “Whomever I kiss, He is the One; seize Him.”
Immediately he went up to Jesus and said, “Greetings, Rabbi!” and kissed Him. But Jesus said to him, “Friend, why have you come?” Then they came and laid hands on Jesus and took Him.”

7. Jesus’ Arrest In The Garden

When Judas lead a crowd of armed men to Jesus, Peter attempted to defend Jesus. In the process he cut off the ear of the high priest’s servant with a sword, but Jesus rebuked him.

Matthew 26:51-54 NKJV

“And suddenly, one of those who were with Jesus stretched out his hand and drew his sword, struck the servant of the high priest, and cut off his ear. But Jesus said to him, “Put your sword in its place, for all who take the sword will perish by the sword. Or do you think that I cannot now pray to My Father, and He will provide Me with more than twelve legions of angels? How then could the Scriptures be fulfilled, that it must happen thus?” In that hour Jesus said to the multitudes, “Have you come out, as against a robber, with swords and clubs to take Me? I sat daily with you, teaching in the temple, and you did not seize Me. But all this was done that the Scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled.” Then all the disciples forsook Him and fled.”

Jesus could have called for a army of angels to defend Him, but Jesus understood that what He was going through was God’s will and that He was fulfilling the Scriptures.

8. Game – Coin Toss

Judas betrayed Jesus for thirty pieces of silver.

Matthew 26:14-15 NKJV

“Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went to the chief priests
and said, “What are you willing to give me if I deliver Him to you?” And they counted out to him thirty pieces of silver.”

Matthew 27:9 NKJV

“Then was fulfilled what was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet, saying, “And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the value of Him who was priced, whom they of the children of Israel priced,
and gave them for the potter’s field, as the Lord directed me.”

Need:

60 coins

2 cups

2 teams

Divide children into 2 teams. Give each team 30 coins (Each teams coins should be identical). They will take turn tossing their coins. The team that get the most coins in their cup is the winner.

9. Annas and Caiaphas

The soldiers arrested Jesus and He was charged with blasphemy. First Jesus was taken to Annas, then He was led to the high priest Caiaphas, and the Sanhedrin. They wanted Jesus killed, but according to their religious laws they could not do it personally, so they sent Jesus to Pontius Pilate. Caiaphas, and the Sanhedrin arranged for false witnesses to testify against Jesus, hoping that Pontius Pilate would have Jesus crucified.

Matthew 26:57-65 NKJV

“And those who had laid hold of Jesus led Him away to Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and the elders were assembled. But Peter followed Him at a distance to the high priest’s courtyard. And he went in and sat with the servants to see the end. Now the chief priest, the elders, and all the council sought false testimony against Jesus to put Him to death,
but found none. Even though many false witnesses came forward, they found none. But at last two false witnesses came forward and said, “This fellow said, ‘I am able to destroy the temple of God and to build it in three days.’” And the high priest arose and said to Him, “Do You answer nothing? What is it these men testify against You?” But Jesus kept silent. And the high priest answered and said to Him, “I put You under oath by the living God: Tell us if You are the Christ, the Son of God!” Jesus said to him, “It is as you said. Nevertheless, I say to you, hereafter you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Power, and coming on the clouds of heaven.” Then the high priest tore his clothes, saying, “He has spoken blasphemy! What further need do we have of witnesses? Look, now you have heard His blasphemy! What do you think?” They answered and said, “He is deserving of death.” Then they spat in His face and beat Him; and others struck Him with the palms of their hands, saying, “Prophesy to us, Christ! Who is the one who struck You?”

10. Game – Working Together

Need: several inflated balloons, a sign that reads, “Jesus has called us to work together.”

Place the sign a short distance from both teams. Divide the children into two groups and have them line up in two lines. The children will team up into pairs in each group. The leader will place a balloon between the backs of the first pair on each team. At the signal they will walk or run to the sign and say “Jesus has called us to work together.” They will then return to their team and place the balloon between the backs of the next pair on their team. They will repeat what the first pair did. The team that finishes first is the winner.

11. Pontius Pilate and Herod

Pontius Pilate questioned Jesus then had Jesus sent to Herod. Herod and his men mocked Jesus then sent Him back to Pontius Pilate. Once again Pontius Pilate questioned Jesus again and found no fault in Him. He wanted to have Jesus whipped then released. However, the religious leaders and the crowd began to cry out, “Crucify Him!”. In the end, Pontius Pilate sentenced Jesus to death.

Matthew 27:1-2 NKJV

“ When morning came, all the chief priests and elders of the people plotted against Jesus to put Him to death. And when they had bound Him, they led Him away and delivered Him to Pontius Pilate the governor.”

Luke 23:1- 16 NKJV

Then the whole multitude of them arose and led Him to Pilate. And they began to accuse Him, saying, “We found this fellow perverting the nation, and forbidding to pay taxes to Caesar, saying that He Himself is Christ, a King.” Then Pilate asked Him, saying, “Are You the King of the Jews?” He answered him and said, “It is as you say.” So Pilate said to the chief priests and the crowd, “I find no fault in this Man.” But they were the more fierce, saying, “He stirs up the people, teaching throughout all Judea, beginning from Galilee to this place.” When Pilate heard of Galilee, he asked if the Man were a Galilean. And as soon as he knew that He belonged to Herod’s jurisdiction, he sent Him to Herod, who was also in Jerusalem at that time. Now when Herod saw Jesus, he was exceedingly glad; for he had desired for a long time to see Him, because he had heard many things about Him, and he hoped to see some miracle done by Him. Then he questioned Him with many words, but He answered him nothing. And the chief priests and scribes stood and vehemently accused Him. Then Herod, with his men of war, treated Him with contempt and mocked Him, arrayed Him in a gorgeous robe, and sent Him back to Pilate. That very day Pilate and Herod became friends with each other, for previously they had been at enmity with each other. Then Pilate, when he had called together the chief priests, the rulers, and the people, said to them, “You have brought this Man to me, as one who misleads the people. And indeed, having examined Him in your presence, I have found no fault in this Man concerning those things of which you accuse Him; no, neither did Herod, for I sent you back to him; and indeed nothing deserving of death has been done by Him. I will therefore chastise Him and release Him”

Matthew 27:11- NKJV

“Now Jesus stood before the governor. And the governor asked Him, saying, “Are You the King of the Jews?” Jesus said to him, “It is as you say.” And while He was being accused by the chief priests and elders, He answered nothing.
Then Pilate said to Him, “Do You not hear how many things they testify against You?” But He answered him not one word, so that the governor marveled greatly. Now at the feast the governor was accustomed to releasing to the multitude one prisoner whom they wished. And at that time they had a notorious prisoner called Barabbas. Therefore, when they had gathered together, Pilate said to them, “Whom do you want me to release to you? Barabbas, or Jesus who is called Christ?” For he knew that they had handed Him over because of envy. While he was sitting on the judgment seat, his wife sent to him, saying, “Have nothing to do with that just Man, for I have suffered many things today in a dream because of Him.” But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitudes that they should ask for Barabbas and destroy Jesus. The governor answered and said to them, “Which of the two do you want me to release to you?” They said, “Barabbas!” Pilate said to them, “What then shall I do with Jesus who is called Christ?” They all said to him, “Let Him be crucified!” Then the governor said, “Why, what evil has He done?” But they cried out all the more, saying, “Let Him be crucified!”
When Pilate saw that he could not prevail at all, but rather that a tumult was rising, he took water and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, “I am innocent of the blood of this just Person. You see to it.” And all the people answered and said, “His blood be on us and on our children.” Then he released Barabbas to them; and when he had scourged Jesus, he delivered Him to be crucified.”
