Well done!

Do you want to have another go?!

next

#1 Have you watched this week’s lesson?

You must have known that question was coming!

next

#2 Why did Jesus visit the well?

Jesus had been on a long and tiring journey. He had stopped at the well to have a rest and a refreshing drink of water.

next

#3 Jesus met a woman at the well. Where had the woman come from?

The woman was from a city called Sychar which was in a country called Samaria. People who lived in Samaria were known as Samaritans. You may remember the story of the ‘good Samaritan’ in the Bible from a previous lesson.

next

#4 Jesus asked the Samarian woman if she could give Him some water to drink. She was very surprised that He had spoken to her in such a friendly way. Why was she surprised?

Jewish people did not speak to, or want to have anything to do with the Samaritans as they did not like them. The woman was therefore very surprised when Jesus spoke to her in a friendly way.

next

#5 We can drink water which quenches our thirst for a little while, but Jesus can give us ‘living water’ so that we will never thirst again. What is this ‘living water’ that only Jesus Christ can give?

When sinners trust in the Lord Jesus Christ and repent of their sinful lives, He forgives all of their sins and ‘saves’ them from the power of sin and the Devil. He also gives them the Holy Spirit and promises them everlasting life.

Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission (forgiveness) of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost” Acts Ch. 2 vs 38

next

#6 Whenever we use water at home it costs money which has to be paid to the water company. What do we owe God if he saves us and gives us His ‘living water’ for ever?

A saved sinner is unable to give God anything. God’s gift of salvation is free and unconditional. He saves His people out of His incredible love for them. A Christian seeks to praise, love and glorify God for His unspeakable gift, desiring to please their loving Father in Heaven.

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and not of yourselves; it is the gift of God; not of works lest any man should boast.” Ephesians Ch. 2 vs 8-9.

next

#7 The Samarian woman told Jesus that she thought He was a prophet. Why did she think this?

Jesus knew that the woman had been married to five husbands. She knew that no man could have known this unless they were a prophet. The Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, knows everything about all of us. He knows all of the bad things we have ever thought and done (sins). We must therefore turn to Him and plead for His forgiveness and mercy.

“..but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.” Hebrews Ch. 4 vs 13

next

#8 Do the things of this world really make you happy or are you always looking for something else to excite or entertain you, with no lasting happiness or joy?

The world is full of sin which becomes more troubling as you get older. People are forever seeking more exciting and fun things to do, but the excitement never lasts, and in the end have nothing to show for their lives. There is only one way to find true peace and happiness in this world, and in the world to come. That is by believing and trusting in the Lord Jesus Christ and ‘drinking’ this Living water.

Then shall the dust (our body) return to the earth as it was: and the spirit (our soul) shall return unto God who gave it. Vanity of vanities, saith the preacher, all is vanity.” Ecclesiastes Ch. 12 vs 7-8

next

#9 Water washes dirt from the outside of our bodies so we can look clean to others around us. However, we are all dirty and polluted with sin inside, where only Almighty God can see it. How can our sins be cleansed and washed from inside us?

Jesus Christ is the only One who can wash away our sins: we cannot do it ourselves, however good we try to be. King David repented with great sorrow after he had sinned against God and said “Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow” Psalm 51 vs 4

Sunday School Quiz – 28th June 2020

Click ‘Next’ to start this week’s quiz. This is a long memory test over a lot of lessons, so make sure you’re ready…

Results

Well done! Have you realised that God is calling you, trusted His promises and asked Him to save you? If you have then you will know what it’s like to have your prayers answered and experience everything in your life working out for the best, just like Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph did.

Perhaps you should have another try! Have you realised that God is calling you, trusted His promises and asked Him to save you? If you have then you will know what it’s like to have your prayers answered and experience everything in your life working out for the best, just like Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph did.

next

#1 Have you watched this week’s lesson?

Although it’s revision week, you should definitely still watch the lesson!

next

#2 Over the last few weeks, we have learned about a very famous family, whose history and God’s plan for them is told in the first book of the Bible. What is the first book of the Bible?

Of course it’s Genesis! God used Moses to write the book of Genesis around 4000 years ago.

next

#3 The first member of the family we learned about was Abraham, who was called by God to make a long journey to a promised land. Why did Abraham follow God’s instruction?

Abraham was a man of faith and knew that God would keep His promises and protect him and provide for him wherever he was.

next

#4 God put Abraham’s faith to the test in a particular way; what was the test?

Abraham was prepared to do what God commanded and trusted that God had a plan even though he didn’t know what it was. When God stopped Abraham and provided a ram for the sacrifice to take Isaac’s place, it gives a picture to us of what the Lord Jesus did on the cross.

next

#5 We learned about Abraham’s nephew, Lot, who had a choice to make between following his uncle’s example, or taking what looked like an easier way, which he thought would make him rich and successful. How did Lot’s choice work out?

Lot’s selfish choice turned out to be disastrous for him and his family. If we turn away from the Lord and go our own way we will find the same thing: that life without God is empty and bitter, hopeless and cruel.

next

#6 Abraham’s son, Isaac, needed to find a wife. How did they go about finding someone for him to marry?

God answered their prayer in a most wonderful way, and He will also answer our prayers if we really mean them.

next

#7 Isaac married Rebekah and they had twin sons, Esau, the eldest by a few minutes, and Jacob. Esau should have inherited the family goods and especially God’s promises to the family. Did Esau take this seriously and what happened to the inheritance?

Because he didn’t care much about his part in God’s plan, Esau was prepared to swap it for a bowl of soup! He is a warning to us not to dismiss God’s love and mercy.

next

#8 Because Jacob had tricked his father and made his brother Esau so angry that he threatened to kill him, he had to run away. On his journey, he had to sleep in the open. How did God speak to him?

God sent Jacob a dream about a ladder reaching up to Heaven and angels going up and down the ladder. We learnt that the dream is a picture to us of the cross of Jesus which has made it possible for us to reach Heaven and brings God’s love down to earth.

next

#9 Jacob was away for over 20 years before he decided to return home, having become prosperous, hoping to be reconciled with Esau and bringing him many gifts. The night before he met Esau, he had a wrestling match; who did he wrestle with and why?

Jacob wrestled all night until the sun started to rise in the morning. We learnt from Jacob that if we really want to have our sins forgiven and have the Lord Jesus save us then we need to keep praying and not let Him go until He has forgiven and saved us.

next

#10 Jacob has returned home happily and is back in the Promised Land, with his large family. Who was Jacob’s favourite son and how did that son make his family angry?

Jacob loved Joseph more than his other sons because he saw that Joseph loved and trusted God and wanted to do what was right. He even made Joseph a special coat of many different colours. When Joseph had his dreams about the sheaves and the stars he realised that they were from God and didn’t mind what his brothers said about him or thought of him. We learnt that sometimes we worry too much about what other people think and not enough about what God thinks, and that we should ask the Lord to help us to be more like Joseph.

next

#11 Joseph’s brothers sell him into slavery because they are so jealous of him. His life has lots of ups and downs, he becomes head of his master’s household, but then goes to prison and finally ends up as Prime Minister of Egypt. What do these events teach Joseph?

Joseph went through many difficult times in his life, but he remained content and joyful through them all because he knew that God was with him and would help and protect him. He also trusted that God had a special plan just for him and we learnt that if we become a true Christian then the same will be true for us too.

next

#12 This series of lessons about Abraham and his many descendants has taught us a lot about this family’s history. Although they lived thousands of years ago, people are still the same today, wherever they live, rich and poor, boys and girls. What do these lessons teach us today?

We have been taught many vital lessons in this series. Hopefully you have got 12/12 in this quiz…!

#2 In today’s lesson we heard about a dream that Pharaoh had. What animals appeared in Pharaoh’s dream?

There were 7 fat cows that were eaten by 7 thin ones. Later, he had another dream about 7 full ears of corn which were eaten by 7 withered ones. When Pharaoh woke up he was very confused and frightened. He knew that the dreams were not ordinary dreams and that they had a meaning.

Benjamin had stayed at home with his father Jacob. Joseph wanted to see him as well as test his brothers.

next

#7 Why did Joseph decide to test his brothers?

Joseph wanted to know if his brothers had changed since they sold him into slavery and told his father he had been killed. If they treated Benjamin the same way as they treated him, then he would know that they were not really sorry.

next

#8 All the while Joseph was testing his brothers he struggled to contain his love for them. He kept having to rush out of the room! How long ago did Jesus’ love for His children begin?

Jesus’ love for His children never had a beginning! He has always loved them, even before the world was created. It was this eternal, infinite love that brought Him into the world and led Him to the cross, and it was this love that kept Him suffering on the cross until all of His children’s sins had been dealt with and paid for. What a Saviour!
