We are a die-hard Jesus family. In every thought, action, and deed we aim to please Him.
The boys have had solid teachings on many of the New Testament scriptures and stories as we align our thoughts and behaviors more after Christ.
We've decided to study history and the Bible together from Creation to Modern times. I am weaving in the Jesus Connection throughout our journey so they can see God's master plan of redemption for all of mankind.
However, I find the need to sidebar and just have some fun connecting Jesus to it all. I enjoy watching their small faces light up when they find OT Scriptures in the NT too.
I made this Jesus and the 10 Commandments printable as an engaging way for my sons to “hunt” through the Bible finding the NT equivalent to each commandment.
Here are a few remarks from my sons while “hunting”
“Wow, Mommy look! Jesus said the same thing!”
“Moses and Jesus are on point!”
“Oh, I get it now! ‘Jesus came to fulfill the law' means He teaches his followers the same things that God taught the Hebrew people.”
“Mom, what's the word for when the same thing happens in more than one area? Consistency? Yeah, I like that the Bible is consistent.”
It's your turn! Add a fun and Biblical activity to your home(school).

Here are some different ways to participate
Sibling Bible Hunt Contest (works best with 2 or more kids)
Print 1 sheet for each child. Have them each grab their own Bible. Choose a room in the house (kitchen table may be best) and grab a timer/stopwatch. Yell, “Go!” and let the games begin.
Quiet Time Bible Hunt (works best with any number of kids)
Print 1 sheet for each child. Have them each grab their own Bible. Choose an independent space for each and allow them to study their Bible uninterrupted.
Interactive Bible Hunt (works best with 2 kids)
Print 2 sheets. Tape one sheet to a wall, whiteboard, or any other hard, flat surface in your home. Use the other sheet as a reference. Have 1 Bible handy. Choose one child to find the Bible verses and the other to read them. Allow the children to alternate deciding which NT verse pairs with the OT verse and walking up to the taped sheet to record the answer in marker (so you can see it from a distance).
I hope you all enjoy studying the Bible and having fun together.
