Lesson: Prayer for Israelites to be saved
Scripture: Romans 9:1-10:4
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.

Healing of the sick

Resurrection of Jesus
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.
Discuss prayer and law – all point to Jesus.
The Jews didn’t see Jesus when he came.
