Hello sweet sisters in Christ.
I posted this graphic on my socials and got an overwhelming response from you all that “Discipleship School” was something you wanted me to share.
For week 1, lesson 1: THE BREAD LESSON.
(Feel free to follow my lesson plan OR come up with your own. I’d love to know what you’re doing if you’ve begun DISCIPLESHIP SCHOOL in your home.)
I chose a bread recipe out of a new book I got for my birthday a few weeks ago:
For copyright reasons, I’m not sure I can show the recipe from the book but I will link a few copycat recipes below.
We started by making the bread together but I let the girls really take ownership of the baking. We’ve been baking for the last year and have grown to love it.
While the girls were cooking, I read John 6.
The key verses being:
Jesus said to them, “I tell you the truth, it is not Moses who has given you the bread from heaven, but it is my Father who gives you the true bread from heaven. 33 For the bread of God is he who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.” 34 “Sir,” they said, “from now on give us this bread.”35 Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.
We then played BIBLE “BREAD” TRIVIA:
Questions To Ask and Look Up:
What kind of bread did the Lord send from Heaven down to the Israelites?
Psalm 78:24, Exodus 16 A: Manna
What did satan tell Jesus to turn into bread when he tempted Him in the wilderness?
Matthew 4 A: Stones
What did the unleavened bread represent to the Israelites during Passover?
Exodus 12:39 A: Being driven out of Egypt quickly, no preparations.
What does the bread in communion represent?
Luke 22:19-20 A: Jesus’ body- remembering what He did on the cross.
Jesus refers to Himself as the “Bread of *what*?”
John 6:35 A: The Bread of LIFE.
We had a really good time and it was refreshing going over these passages with the girls.
Here’s some copycat recipes:
The purpose of this lesson, is not only to get your kids baking and learning how to follow recipes BUT to remind them that our true satisfaction, sustainer, and life is in JESUS.
Bread is so very significant in the Bible and we should think about Christ every single time we eat it.
