The Baptism of Jesus (Kids' Talk)

For the baptism of Jesus I went through the story and at each stage had a projected picture or prop.

  1. John the Baptist: camel and locust (picture and live locust respectively)
  2. He said get ready for God (picture of the crucifixion)
  3. People came out and said ... (I asked the kids what people might be saying about John, and while I did this we had a picture of the congregation on the screen.)
  4. He said, 'Be baptised' (picture of the river Jordan)
  5. Jesus came and was baptised (picture of baptism with dove)
  6. and he heard the voice of God (asked the kids what God might have said to Jesus)
The most important thing about the story of Jesus, to hear in all sorts of ways, "You are my beloved, in whom I am well pleased."
