Chuck Waggin says: Yep. There are at least ten questions every family should be talkin ’bout. Come on down and join us at our weekly movie adventure. Y’all, it’s the purrrfect excuse to bring up topics for discussion at home – on account of y’all watched the video. See ya there?
Last week we watched a video about the Gospels. Here is a short bit from our video… (if you are reading this in an email click here to view the video).
Here are some questions to talk about at the family dinner table. (Or wherever your family is gathered together.)
You can ask these questions even if you missed the video showing last weekend! For other sets of discussion questions view here. If desired, print out this family discussion guide here. (You can spread this out over several days.)
HAVE SOME FAMILY DISCUSSION…
- Pass around a Bible. The person holding the Bible gets to be the one who shares their glads and sads for the day. (Or perhaps you call them peaks and pits?)
- Open up the Bible and point out (or ask your child to find) the Gospels.
- What does the word “gospel” mean? (good news) Talk about what is this “good news.” How has it made a difference in your life?
- What are the names of the four gospels? Who wrote each one? (Watch the video above to find some answers). Why do you suppose that there are different gospels?
- Chuck Waggin is a country western, singing member of the What’s in the Bible? movie. See if your family can come up with a country western tune that teaches the names of the four gospels. ♩♫ (Bonus: Add the rest of the books of the New Testament!)
- Find the first book of the New Testament – Matthew. Note how chapter one starts off — with the genealogy of Jesus. What is a genealogy? What do you know about your family genealogy? (Draw a family tree!) Why do you suppose Matthew included a genealogy? (it connects the OT to the NT)
- What important things did Jesus do? (review some of Jesus’ miracles & teachings) If someone asked you to summarize the gospels, what would you say?
- Make a list of words that summarize what the gospels teach. Play a game of “How Few Can You Do.” In this game you take the list you created and try to reduce it to as few key words as possible. How did you do? Share your words with the community!
