Joseph and Jesus


How can you teach your small children about how the story of Joseph foreshadows Jesus' story?

Tell your kids that you want to see how much your family has in common. Then ask, "Who can curl their tongue?" Instruct everyone who can do this to stand together in one corner of the room. Then ask, "Who can hop on one foot?" Repeat with new questions to find other similarities between family members.

Explain that the lives of Joseph and Jesus had remarkable similarities. Both men were betrayed by someone close to them. Both were also used by God to save His people. Joseph saved his father and brothers from a terrible famine, and Jesus' sacrifice on the Cross delivered mankind from sin.
