Discovering Jesus from Eternity Past to Eternity Future
Wouldn’t it be the coolest thing ever to travel back in time and witness epic events in history? Imagine the thrill of meeting great heroes of the faith like Moses, Mary or Paul. Or the fun of experiencing life in ancient cultures like Egypt, Greece or Rome. Or the fascination of watching famous inventors make discoveries that change the world.
Now imagine traveling through time and meeting the most important, unique man ever—a man who was not just a man, but also God. A man who turned the world upside-down. A man who existed outside of time.
We did just that as we embarked on Time Lab. We used words beginning with “C” to help us remember that Jesus, our forever faithful, loving, caring, promise-keeping Lord, has been with us always!
- Creation: Did you know the Son of God has always existed? We’ll talk about his existence before time and his activity at Creation.
- Christophany: Big, cool word the kids will love learning that teaches the Son of God didn’t start as a babe in a manger but has been around forever, actively involved throughout history, including the Old Testament! They’ll study the biblical accounts of Abraham and Gideon that show appearances of the Son of God to people before he came to earth.
- Cross: Here’s when Jesus is actually given the name “Jesus.” And here’s where he lives, dies, and comes back to life. It’s the most epic historical account ever! Because of him, we can live forever, too! Although opportunities to present the gospel are provided every day, this is the day we’ll present the gospel in all its glory.
- Clouds: After Jesus rose again, where did he go? He’s actively working on our behalf as he sits at the right hand of God the Father, interceding for us, protecting his Church, and preparing a place for his children! Wow!
- Crown: We’ll end our tour through time at the new heaven and new earth, where Jesus and his children will live together in the most amazing place forever. Whatever your best day ever has been, a day on the new earth will blow it away!
Time sure did fly while we were having fun at Time Lab!
