Balaam – Bible Film Camp

Balaam and the Talking Donkey from Numbers 22, 24, 31

When the donkey saw the angel and felt the presence of Love, she stopped in her tracks, which prevented Balaam from going to Moab to curse the children of Israel. The donkey seemed to be more willing to listen to God than Balaam and was able to communicate with Balaam in a language he understood. By listening to the angel thoughts, and obeying them, the donkey saved not only the children of Israel, but Balaam as well. That’s an example of God’s protecting power — what cannot God do?

Two more points:

  • Balaam knew God and carried out his commands, but he was an evil man, driven by money rather than love of God.
  • The angel threatened Balaam because Balaam was obeying God in his actions, but in his heart he was rebelling, thinking only of the bribe.

Elisha – Bible Camp Video

Elisha the prophet

Elisha was a prophet (Important Bible Dude).  His teacher was Elijah (another prophet).
Elijah, with God’s help, divided the waters of the river Jordan.  He taught Elisha how to talk with God, and let God’s light shine in him.  Elisha divided the waters of the Jordan river.  Elijah was taken up into heaven in a fiery chariot, leaving Elisha to continue to show God’s great works.
 Elisha was a leader.  He taught his people what to do, where to go, how to make the soil and water better.
He was bullied for being friends with Elijah.  Elisha knew this was wrong.  They should not tease about God’s great prophet Elijah.    And immediately two fierce she-bears rushed out of the wood, and killed forty-two of them.
God enabled Elisha to do many miracles. He brought a dead child to life again. He healed the Syrian general, Naaman, of an incurable disease; fed a hundred of the prophets with a small quantity of bread; and did many other wonderful works.
Elisha shows us friendship!   And the concept of Prophesy — what does it mean to know what God knows?

Bible Lesson Art – SOUL

By: Marjory Hawkins

Soul

About the Weekly Lesson Art:
As a Sunday School teacher, each week I pray about interesting ways to
present the stories and ideas in the Weekly Bible Lesson. The idea to make
art out of selected citations from the Bible lesson came to me recently as I
was thinking about teaching the 5th-6th grade class. I wasn’t sure if any of
them were reading the lesson on a regular basis, and thought if they could
learn to love and appreciate individual citations, they might be more
inclined to study  and love the entire lesson. The idea is to provide them
with a template each week on drawing paper that they can paint (watercolor)
and then fill in with a fine point marker with words, citations, thoughts on
the upcoming week’s lesson. We bring them in the following Sunday to show
what we each did with the page, and talk about what citations were selected
and why….which hopefully promotes a lively conversation about the Bible
lesson.
