Before Saul came to put the followers of Jesus in prison, and now he is returning to tell everyone he can about Jesus.
(9: 26) When Saul had first come to Jerusalem, he tried to join the disciples, but they were afraid of him. They didn’t believe Saul had really changed so fast and so much! But Barnabas took Saul to the disciples and told them about Saul being blinded by the light on the road to Damascus and how he had been preaching at Damascus. So Saul preached boldly, but more people wanted to kill him. So he went to Tarsus, where he lived as a boy. The churches in Judea, Galilee and Samaria grew and were peaceful.
Here is the project we did with this lesson. I used the large 12x18 black or dark blue construction paper. I purchased 12x12 stone scrapbook paper. I cut the top to look like the wall and have the string inserted through the paper and tied to the ends of the basket. The kids will glue on the windows and add the star stickers for the night. You can print the basket and Saul here.
