Bible Time FUN Through the Bible
Kids Bible Lesson 8 - Jacob's Ladder

Week 8 we had fun learning the Bible story of Jacob’s Ladder.

In the previous Bible stories, we learned God promised to make Abraham the father of a great nation. In this children's Bible lesson, the children learn how Jacob continues the story of God's promise through a great dream.

This is a great story of God’s love and protection.  Have fun learning!

If you haven’t read the introduction to Bible Time yet, I recommend you read the outline about the Bible lessons for children first.

Bible Story Tips

  • We read the story “Jacob’s Ladder” beginning on page 15 of the children's Bible Storybook called Bible-Time Stories and Rhymes.

  • During story, draw attention to the key concepts for this lesson.

  • Don't forget to ask questions related to the story, for example, “What did Jacob see in his dream?”

  • This week our daughters learned about blessings, what it means to worship and how we can be close to God.

  • After the Bible story and discussion session, we stand up and do the interactive rhyme found in the Bible storybook

After the story and rhyme, we say a prayer that is related to the Bible story. You can either have your children repeat after you or allow them to come up with their own prayer.

  • The Bible song for this week is "Jacob's ladder".
