Week 26 - Jesus Is Born -
Bible Time FUN Through the Bible
Kids Bible Lesson 26 - Jesus Is Born

Welcome to week 26!

This week your children learn the Bible story about how Jesus was born.

Mary and Joseph returned to the town of Bethlehem to register for the Roman census. While they were there, Mary gave birth to baby Jesus. She wrapped the baby in cloths and placed him in a manger because there were no guest rooms in town. The promised king and Messiah had finally arrived! 


In this Bible lesson, the children learn that Jesus was born to be the Savior of the world. Jesus was a special baby, a gift from God.

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

  • Don't forget to ask questions related to the story, for example, “Where did Mary and Joseph have to travel to?”
