Meals with Jesus

A journey through Luke’s Gospel

Meals with Jesus is a series of 9 lessons in Luke’s Gospel that explore who Jesus chose to sit and eat with. He could have dined with the VIPs of his day, but instead he often ate with the sinners, the outcasts, the broken and the needy. Through these Bible stories, children will discover more of Jesus' character as he showed care and compassion for the marginalised.

The lessons have been written to dovetail with the Meals with Jesus book of family Bible times so families can enjoy bite sized chunks at home while these key passages are taught at church:

Lunch with Levi (Luke 5:27-32)

Supper at Simon’s (Luke 7:36-50)

Big Picnic (Luke 9:10-17)

At Mary and Martha’s (Luke 10:38-42)

Best Seat in the House (Luke 14:1-11)

With Zacchaeus (Luke 19:1-10)

The Last Supper (Luke 22:14-20)

On the Road to Emmaus (Luke 24: 13-35)

The Greatest Party Ever (Luke 14:15-24)

The lesson plans are broken into separate teaching materials for 3-5s, 5-7s, 8-11s and mixed age groups, and include worksheets and handouts for parents to help start the conversation at home.

We need Jesus lesson 8 - We need new life

Matthew 9:18-26

Simplified Sunday resource to be taught by parents at home during lockdown

Matthew’s story shows us the great power and compassion of a Saviour who transforms lives. Hear what he says. See what he does. The desperate woman clinging to his cloak is called “daughter”. He walks with the grieving father. He holds the little girl’s hand and she lives. He reaches into death and brings life.

We are dead in sin, unable to help ourselves. Our only hope is that Jesus is kind enough and powerful enough to help us. This story should thrill our hearts with the wonderful truth that he is BOTH! This great news should change us and this new life should spill out of us to those around us.

Questions to Ponder

Do I really recognise my desperate and helpless situation before God, apart from Jesus?

How much of a difference does knowing Jesus make in my life, that others can see?

We need Jesus lesson 7 - We need a friend

Matthew 9:9-13

Simplified Sunday resource to be taught by parents at home during lockdown

Matthew’s story helps us see the connection between how we respond to Jesus and how we view others. If we view ourselves as sinners in need of a Saviour, failures whose only hope is grace, we will extend grace to our fellow sinners. Once we have been humbled to recognise our own sinful state, we won’t be able to look down on others with pride. Our delight at being included by Christ and welcomed to his table will transform us to welcome, include and love others, especially those that others leave out.

Jesus' call to follow him is for all who know they need him. Sadly, the Pharisees don’t think they do.

Questions to Ponder

Are you amazed and delighted that Jesus welcomes you, or should he be delighted to have you on his guest list? How does his generous welcome of you change the way you think about and act towards people who some view as failures?
