Big Picture Question: Who can keep God’s law? No one can keep God’s law perfectly except Jesus
This week, we continued our journey through the Bible using The Gospel Project ® for
Kids and examined the rules that God gave His people for how to worship Him in the
tabernacle. God required sacrifices from the people when they sinned. The Book of
Hebrews tells us that the sacrifices themselves did not save the people, but it was their
faith in God that saved them. God provided the perfect, final Sacrifice His
Son, Jesus to redeem people from sin once and for all.
Help your kids realize that Jesus it the ultimate and perfect Sacrifice and salvation is
found in Him alone.
