Jesus in the Old Testament – Teach kids that Jesus was introduced in the Old Testament. That’s how Jews knew to look for him and believe in him when Jesus came to earth.

When I have taught this lesson, I had prepared the list of these prophesies and written them down on individual sheets of paper. Then, I read the OT scripture, and had the kids tell me which part of Jesus’s life the OT scripture discussed. Then I put each on the top of a page and let the kids illustrate each for a class book.
