Teacher Lesson & Activity Guide
The Jesus Creed series
Sharing God's Love - The Jesus Creed for Children

The Jesus Creed series teaches how to live out Jesus' command to love God and to love your neighbor as yourself. When an expert in the law asked Jesus for the greatest commandment, Jesus responded with the Shema, the ancient Jewish creed that commands Israel to love God with heart, soul, mind, and strength. But the next part of Jesus' answer would change the course of history. Jesus amended the Shema, giving his followers a new creed for life, the Jesus Creed: loving God with heart, soul, mind, and strength, but also loving others as themselves.

The teacher lesson and activity guide is designed to help children apply the truths of Sharing God's Love: The Jesus Creed for Children. Through interactive lessons, games, and activities, children memorize the Jesus Creed and then identify specific ways they can apply the Jesus Creed in their daily lives -- loving God and loving others.

Materials may be photocopied and distributed to students, as well as adapted for your own classroom, Sunday school, or homeschool use.
