Could Jesus really heal people?
Were these miracles or is there some other explanation?
The children will start by looking at what happens when they are sick or ill, thinking of who helps them and whether their mind frame can support recovery. They will learn the stories of Jesus and the Paralyzed Man (Mark 2:1-12) and Jesus heals the Blind Man (John 9:1-12) before discussing the importance of these stories for Christians. The children will get deep into the learning pit through questioning what is a 'miracle' and whether it matters or not if these stories are true.
