Day 19 of the Matthew Bible Lego Challenge! We are nearing the end of our 21-day challenge, friends! Today the challenge Jesus dying on the cross.
If you haven’t downloaded the printable yet, you want to do that right away! You can do the challenge on your own (there are 34 days total with copywork and notebooking pages) or you can use it to follow along with us here and share your creations with us on the Proverbial Homemaker Facebook page, Twitter, and Instagram!
For the 19th day of the challenge, we read Matthew 27. The challenge is to create the three crosses on calvary hill, adding detail depending on the sensitivity of the child. My son created the three crosses, the center one with Jesus. Guards, people observing, and Jesus’ mother were also present.
It is strange and somewhat powerful watching a child build a scene like this, depicting our Savior in the most important act and sacrifice of all time. It is the very event that the entirety of history is hinged upon, and the center of what my life and our family is all about. Here we are, building it with Legos.
If it seems a bit irreverent, I have had that thought as well. However, he is learning about the story more. He is interacting with the details and we are having amazing discussions about what it all means to us now. I have to say that our Bible Lego challenges have been some of the most meaningful family devotions we’ve experienced.
The copywork for the challenge is Matthew 27:46, where Jesus cries out to God and asks why He has been forsaken. The printable includes a drawing and writing page for those who would rather draw the scene.
We are going through 21 (out of 34) of the buils from the Matthew Lego Challenge together, following a FREE kids’ devotion on the YouVersion app (or the desktop version, Bible.com). The devotion is called Walk With Jesus: 21 Days Through Matthew and it is from What’s in the Bible?, one of our favorite family discipleship tools! Don’t forget to enter to win the What’s in the Bible DVD that goes along with the book of Matthew!
