Reading the scroll


  • Paper
  • Marker



  1. Before class begins, use a sheet of paper to write down the words of Isaiah that the eunuch was reading: “He was led like a sheep to the slaughter; And, as a lamb is silent before the shearers, He did not open His mouth. He was humiliated and received no justice. Who can speak of his descendants? For his life was taken from the earth” (Acts 8:32b-33).
  2. Roll the paper to form a roll.
  3. When the children arrive, open the scroll and ask one of them to read it.
  4. Ask them what this verse means, then discuss how sometimes the Word of God can be difficult to understand.
  5. Explain that in today’s story they will read the story of a man who read these verses and someone helped him understand them.
