Read the Bible Together: Jesus Rises from the Dead - Bible Reading Plan
Explaining the story of Jesus' crucifixion to our children can feel intimidating. As parents, we don't want to confuse or scare them. That's why this 7-day plan not only covers Jesus' death, but also his resurrection–for that is what the Christian faith is built upon. As you read this story to your children, assure them that God's big story has a happy and hopeful ending. Your children may have questions and that is okay! Sometimes an "I don't know" is the appropriate answer. Children can comprehend more than we realize. Therefore, never underestimate what truths will sink into their hearts. Trust that God will use this time to guide your children into a deeper love for Jesus.
