    EGG 3 • THE CUP
    The cup reminds us of Jesus’ last supper with His disciples before His crucifixion. It was used for the wine, which symbolizes Jesus’ blood poured out for us and our sins.

    Matthew 26:26–28 (ESV)
    26 Now as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and after blessing it broke it and gave it to the disciples, and said, “Take, eat; this is my body.” 27 And He took a cup, and when He had given thanks He gave it to them, saying, “Drink of it, all of you, 28 for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.

    Parents, explain to your children how Jesus has taken the punishment meant for them, even though He didn’t deserve it and now they are able to be free! His sacrificial work gives us the opportunity for eternal life!
    Has there been a time when you’ve trusted Jesus? If not, share the Gospel with your kids! (God. Man. Christ. Response.)
    If so, how can you give thanks for what Jesus has done in your life?

    1. Communion reminds us what Jesus did for us. What are other ways we can remember what God has done for us?
    2. Read the first Passover from Exodus 12:21-28. Notice the importance of explaining this event to the Israelite children!
    3. Knowing the blood of the lamb kept death from their houses, how did the people respond? (Exodus 12:27)

  • The Resurrection Journey Day 2

    The coins remind us of the 30 pieces of silver that Judas received for betraying Jesus.

    Matthew 26:14–16 (ESV)

    14 Then one of the twelve, whose name was Judas Iscariot, went to the chief priests 15 and said, “What will you give me if I deliver Him over to you?” And they paid him thirty pieces of silver. 16 And from that moment he sought an opportunity to betray Him.

    Parents, explain to your children that we are just like Judas because we have all betrayed Jesus through our sinful rebellion.
    How have we sinned against Jesus?

    1. How have we sinned against Jesus?
    2. What is the result of our sin? (Rom. 6:23)
    3. What hope is there for us? (Rom. 5:8, 10:9-10)

  • The Resurrection Journey Day 1

    EGG 1 • A DONKEY
    The donkey reminds us of Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem.

    Matthew 21:1-9 (ESV)
    1 Now when they drew near to Jerusalem and came to Bethpage, to the Mount of Olives, then Jesus sent two disciples, 2 saying to them, “Go into the village in front of you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied, and a colt with her. Untie them and bring them to me. 3 If anyone says anything to you, you shall say, ‘The Lord needs them,’ and He will send them at once.” 4 This took place to fulfill what was spoken by the prophet, saying,
    5 “Say to the daughter of Zion,
    ‘Behold, your king is coming to you,
    humble, and mounted on a donkey,
    on a colt, the foal of a beast of burden.’”
    6 The disciples went and did as Jesus had directed them. 7 They brought the donkey and the colt and put on them their cloaks, and he sat on them. 8 Most of the crowd spread their cloaks on the road, and others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road.9 And the crowds that went before Him and that followed Him were shouting, “Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!”

    Remind your families that God calls us to follow Him no matter what, and Jesus showed that to us. In peace or in tribulation (good or bad) we should follow Jesus, who is the King of Kings.
    What is peace?
    How do we follow Jesus in good times and bad?

    1. Can you think of examples of good times? Bad?
    2. What is peace? (define the word-look it up in dictionary if needed)
    3. What does it mean that Jesus is the Prince of Peace? (Isaiah 9:6 + Ephesians 2:13-18)
