Scriptures:  Acts 17:2–4, 10–12; 18:28
Lesson: 
Watch the videos; read the scriptures or use a combination of both.
Ask the kids what stories about Jesus are their favorite. Remind them of some you've studied this year if they need help.

Hide some scripture references around the room and have the kids find them and look them up. Ask them what can they can learn about Jesus from these scriptures.
