GAME: Guess Who

Prepare some descriptions of occupations, e.g. doctor, teacher, contractor etc.

E.g. I help sick people get better. I prescribe medicine. I usually wear a white coat. Who am I? Get the kids to guess the occupation.


GAME: Describe Myself

Hand out small pieces of paper and get each kid to describe him/herself without putting their name. E.g. I am 8 years old. I like to play Pokemon Go. I attend BJJ class after church service.

The teacher reads out the description, and the other kids get to guess who the person is.


Peter Declares That Jesus Is the Messiah

Mark 8:27-30

Jesus and his disciples went on to the villages around Caesarea Philippi. On the way he asked them,

“Who do people say I am?”

28 They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, one of the prophets.”

29 “But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?”

Peter answered, “You are the Messiah.”

30 Jesus warned them not to tell anyone about him.

The Transfiguration

Mark 9:2-10

2 After six days Jesus took Peter, James and John with him and led them up a high mountain, where they were all alone. There he was transfigured before them. 3 His clothes became dazzling white, whiter than anyone in the world could bleach them. 4 And there appeared before them Elijah and Moses, who were talking with Jesus.

5 Peter said to Jesus, “Rabbi, it is good for us to be here. Let us put up three shelters—one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.” 6 (He did not know what to say, they were so frightened.)

7 Then a cloud appeared and covered them, and a voice came from the cloud: “This is my Son, whom I love. Listen to him!”

8 Suddenly, when they looked around, they no longer saw anyone with them except Jesus.

9 As they were coming down the mountain, Jesus gave them orders not to tell anyone what they had seen until the Son of Man had risen from the dead. 10 They kept the matter to themselves, discussing what “rising from the dead” meant.


Jesus the Messiah

Jesus had been going around performing many miracles. He healed the sick. He fed the thousands. He delivered people from demon possession.

Many people had their own ideas about who He was. Was he a prophet like John the Baptist? Or Elijah?

Earlier, some people had hoped Jesus would be the one who would overthrow the Roman Empire and be their king.

But they all didn’t know who He really was or what He was sent to do.

But the Holy Spirit revealed the truth to Peter.

When Jesus asked Peter, “Who do you say I am?”

Peter answered, “You are the Messiah.”

Messiah means Saviour. Jesus was sent to the world so that He would suffer all the punishments and the death that we deserved. And He would rise from the dead after three days. And through His death and resurrection, He would save the world from sin and punishment.

Jesus is the Messiah of the World.

Jesus is God’s Beloved Son

Jesus and His disciples went up to a high mountain. And there, He was transformed into a dazzling white being, together with Elijah and Moses.

And God spoke through a cloud. “This is my Son, whom I love. Listen to him!”

This is the second time when God spoke these words. The first time was when Jesus had just been baptised and was coming out from the Jordan river. The heavens opened, the dove came down, and God’s voice was heard.

In both instances, God wanted to tell those around that Jesus was His beloved Son whom He sent to earth to save the world.

Do you know that because of Jesus coming to save the world, you and I can become God’s beloved children?

Who do you say Jesus is?

We all may have heard of Jesus or read many things about Him.

People outside have their own different opinions about Jesus.

Some think He is a myth/fake. Some think He is just a good man. Some say a teacher. Some say a prophet. Some think He is crazy.

But today, Jesus is asking you and me the same important question. “Who do you say I am?”

Do you really know who Jesus is?

Let me share with you my Jesus story — how I came to know who Jesus is and who He is to me.

Highlight when Jesus became real in your own life and what His salvation means to you. Make sure to keep it age-appropriate.

Who do you say Jesus is?

If you would like to accept Jesus into your life as your Saviour/Messiah, pray along with me.

Thank you Jesus that You came down to suffer my punishment and die for me. Because of you, I can become a beloved child of God. I want You to be my Messiah. I want to be in God’s family. I receive You into my heart today. Thank you for loving us always. In Your name, I pray Amen.



Prepare some paper and pencils. Get the kids to write out their Jesus Story — Who Jesus is to them, and What He has done for them. Get the kids to share their story with each other. Close in prayer.
