PB KidLit – Emmanuel, God With Us



Picture the Bible KidLit brings together biblical literature, children’s literature, and art to foster biblical literacy, encourage students to explore biblical and theological ideas and connect them to their lives and the world.

Emmanuel, God With Us is the fourth of seven resources in the new Picture the Bible KidLit series. All seven KidLit resources together will bring you 52 stories from Picture the Bible in this easy-to-use new resource. The resources can be used in any order.

This set of lessons explores five stories surrounding Jesus’ birth, from the Annunciation through Jesus Teaches in the Temple. Each lesson contains the core components of a Sunday School class: a Bible story, a related children’s literature story, a creative art project, conversation, and prayer. The lesson is flexible and readily meets the needs of a range of learners. The lessons do not require extensive preparations from teachers—background information and biblical insights are provided! This series can be used in a wide range of congregational contexts.

This resource relies on Picture the Bible art and the book Picture the Bible, published by The Pilgrim Press (www.thepilgrimpress.com).
