Easter Story Cookies RECIPE

The process of baking these cookies will deepen every family member's understanding of the Resurrection.  Easter Story Cookies may very well become a family tradition first for your child and perhaps his or her children someday.

On the Saturday before Easter collect the following:

1 Cup whole pecans

3 Egg whites

1 Cup sugar

1 Teaspoon vinegar

Pinch of Salt

Resealable plastic storage bag

Mixing bowl

Wax paper

Masking Tape

Wooden spoon

Hand mixer

Cookie sheet

Family Bible

Preheat oven to 300 degrees

Place the pecans in a resealable plastic storage bag and let
your child beat them with the spoon to crush them into
small pieces.  Explain that after Jesus was arrested the
Roman soldiers beat Him.   READ: John 19:1-3

Help your child smell the vinegar.  Put 1 Teaspoon into the
mixing bowl.  Explain that Jesus was given vinegar to drink
while on the cross.
  Read John 19:28-30

Add the egg whites to vinegar.  Explain that eggs give
life.  Explain that Jesus gave His life to give us eternal life. 
Read: John 10:10-11

Sprinkle a little salt into your child's hand and let them taste
it.  Pour the remaining salt into the mixing bowl.  Explain that
this represents the salty tears Jesus' followers shed.
Read:  Luke 23:27

Explain that the ingredients so far have not been very tasty.

Add 1Cup sugar to the mixture.  Explain the sweetest part of
the whole story is that Jesus died because He loves us.  He
wants you and your children to know and belong to Him. 
Read: Psalm 34:8 and John 3:16

Beat the mixture on high speed for 12-15 minutes untill
stiff peaks are formed.  Explain that the color white represents
the purity in God's eyes of those whose sins have been
forgiven by Jesus. 
Read: Isaiah 1:18 and John 3:1-3

Fold in the crushed, broken nuts.  Drop the cookie dough
by teaspoons onto a cookie sheet covered with wax paper. 
Explain that each mound represents the tomb where Jesus' body was placed.
  Read: Matthew 27:57-60

Carefully put the cookie sheet in the oven, close the door, and
turn the oven OFF.  Give the children masking tape and
help them seal the oven door.  Be careful - the edges of the
oven may still be extremely hot!!  Explain that Jesus' tomb
was sealed.
  Read:  Matthew 27:65-66

Go to bed.  Explain that Jesus' followers were in despair when
the tomb was sealed.
  Read: John 16:20 and 22

On Easter morning, before the children awaken, remove the
tape form the oven door.  Allow the children to open the oven
and to give everyone a cookie.  Point out the cracked surface
and take a bite.  The cookies are hollow!  Explain that on the
first Easter Jesus' followers were amazed to find the tomb
open and empty! 
Read: Matthew 28:1-9

Hope you all enjoy your time with your families making
these cookies.  Although we could not physically be together
to do this project --we are still together making them at the
same time.  I encourage you to invite a friend to join in too.

New Teaching Study Material for Old Testament

LESSON SNAPSHOT:  God wants us to know what 's in the Bible and where to find it.

There are 66 Books in the Bible.
Old Testament:  39 books
New Testament:  27 books

Think about it like this:  there are 3 letters in Old and there are 9 letters in Testament - join the 3 & 9 together and you get 39.
If you take and same 3 & 9 and make them 3 X 9 that equal 27. 
The number of books in the New Testament 27! 
Wasn't that Easy!

God says the Bible is like a sword.  Just like a sword takes practice to use, we need to practice using God's Word.  One of the ways we can do that is by knowing what God has included in the Bible and where we can find it.

Memory Verse: God has breathed life into all Scripture.  It is useful for teaching us what is true.  It is useful for correcting our mistakes.  It is useful for making our lives whole again.  It is useful for training us to do what is right.  2 Timothy 3:16 NIrV


Summary:  The first five books of the Bible tell us how the world began, what God expects of us (the law), and how God put a plan in action to set things right.  It is sometimes called the Pentateuch. 

Bottom Line: The first five books of the Bible tell how God created the world and chose a special people.

Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers & Deuteronomy

Easy way to remember them is Gods Eternal Love Never Dies.

Key Passage:  Genesis 17:1-8, God's Covenant with Abraham

Summary:  The books of history tell us what happened to God's people when they inherited the Promised Land and what happened when they forgot about God.  They teach us about God's laws and God's forgiveness.

Bottom Line:  The books of history teach us what happends when we obey or disobey God.

Next 12 books: Joshua, Judges, Ruth, 1 Samuel,
2 Sameul, 1 Kings, 2 Kings, 1 Chronicles, 2 Chronicles, Ezra, Nehemiah and Esther

The first 3 books can be remembered like this:  Joshua Judges Ruth.  Say is like a sentene.

Summary:  God's books of poetry are not simply pretty verses.  They are filled with praise to our God and wisdom for daily living.

Bottom Line:  The books of poetry are full of praise and wisdom.

Summary:  The Major Prophets were men who delivered God's messages to his people.  Three of them warned the people to turn back to God.  The fourth one spoke while the children of God were in exile and reminded them that God was still in control.

Bottom Line:  The Major Prophets brought important messages to God's people

Summary:  The Minor Prohets didn't write as much as the "majors", but they all delivered important messages.  They reminded the people of God's love and forgiveness, and tried to warn them not to make the same mistakes their ancestors had and they spoke about the coming Messiah.

Bottom Line:  The Minor Prophets delivered important messages about God's judgment and God's plan of salvation.
