Have the Birth of Jesus Timeline Come Alive!

Birth of Jesus Bible Study

Often we get so busy during the month of December that we forget the true meaning of Christmas- The Birth of Jesus!

Grapevine Studies  assists you as you train your children in His Holy Word. Grapevine Studies provides effective, easy-to-teach Bible curriculum to disciple ages five to adult.

This advent season we are stick-figuring through the Birth of Jesus.  The nativity timeline is coming alive in our school room each day. It is so exciting to watch my children draw and meditate on the birth of Jesus.

Lessons in the Birth of Jesus Study:

  •  The announcement
  •  The birth
  •  The proclamation
  •  The Wise Men and Herod

In the Birth of Jesus study your students will learn the chronology of the Nativity, the people involved, where Jesus traveled, and pertinent scriptures related to the Birth of Jesus.

I chose the Multi-level Birth of Jesus study for my family since our children range from 15-2 years of age.  Each morning my children come to our school room prepared with their Bible, Bible notebook, and coloring pencils/crayons.  

First, we review the timeline events from the previous day.  I ask several suggested questions that are provided in the teacher’s guide.  Next, we all look up the recommended scripture for the lesson.  The older ones help the little ones. This is an important part of our study. One person reads the scripture passage while I draw the stick figures on our large dry erase board.

While the children are copying the simple stick figure artwork on their own notebook pages, I review and expand on the scripture passages related to their drawings.  Also, we take turns looking up any key words in the Bible dictionary.

The last part of the lesson for the day, the children draw their favorite part of the lesson on the drawing review page and copy the scripture for the day.

My two year old even tries her very best to draw the stick figures on her own notebook pages.  She might not understand the whole concept of the birth of Jesus, but she knows for certain that Christmas is about Jesus’s birthday.
