Temple Vocabulary Card


The temple was a place to go to worship God and offer sacrifices. It is where God lived among the Jews.

What God said about it:
· The temple was in Jerusalem.
· God gave instructions about how to build the temple to David and Solomon.
· The Ark of the Covenant was inside the temple.
· Deut 12:13-14 says the only place to worship God was at the temple in Jerusalem.

I also had drawings of the temple here, but I didn't want to violate any copyright laws. I'll attach a photo of the card later, if I remember. This is the text, though.

Passover Vocabulary Card


Yearly festival that reminded the Israelites of how God used Moses to bring them out of Egypt.

What God said about it:
· Exodus 12 gives the Israelites rules about how and when to eat the Passover.
· God wanted the Israelites to remember every year how He had brought them from Egypt and saved them from slavery.
· Jesus ate the Passover with the disciples.

I know these are basic, but this isn't a lesson, merely a reminder of things the kids should already have been taught. Again, on mine, there is a drawing of the food and a man painting door posts with blood.
