This Sunday we enjoyed the story of the Mary discovering the empty tomb.
Enjoy the responses from our wondering questions:
I wonder what part of the story you liked best.
*Jesus came back again! (grade 1)
*The same Jesus rises (g1)
*When he became alive again (g1)
*The different Bible stories about the tomb (g5)
*I liked Mark's because it was specific (g5)
I wonder what part of the story is the most important part?
*When Jesus dies on the cross (g1)
*When he comes back to life (g1)
*He goes to heaven but still helps us (g1)
*The earthquake (g5)
*The angel things (g5)
*Jesus saving his life for us (g5)
I wonder where you are in this story? What part of this story is about you?
*When he dies on the cross (g1)
*With Jesus (g1)
*At the Lord's supper (g1)
I wonder if there is any part of the story we can leave out and still have all the story we need.
*If he didn't die he wouldn't always be with us (g1)
*The spices (g5)
*Because there are different perspectives and different details. The parts that aren't in all the stories could be left out and we could keep the parts that are in all the stories. (g5)
I wonder if there are ways we can learn about Jesus even though he's not here with us. I wonder what those ways might be.
*the Bible (g5)
*Going to church and worshiping (g5)
I wonder what God is trying to teach us with this story about loving Jesus even when we'r not with him. (g5)
*feeling the power of the story (g5)
*by loving other people (g5)
*that he's always with you even when he's not on earth. (g5)
Our second grade class chose to find items in the room that reminded them of this story of Jesus' life instead of answering wondering questions:
