teaching John 6:47 to kids
To give the context of the verse, you can explain to your kids why “verily” or “truly” is repeated twice. The reading found here is helpful for understanding. Sometimes details like this help with memorization.
Also, discuss who is saying this quote from John and that Jesus is promising never-ending life for those who believe in Him.
A video for John 6:47
And here’s the key…learning a verse with a tune always helps with long-term memorization. Just think about how many high school songs you can still remember.
One thing about this video. It’s for the NIV version of John 6:47 so it will say “truly, truly” instead of “verily, verily”. You can learn the tune and change it for “verily, verily” so the kids will stay on track of learning one verse for each letter of the alphabet. They are very close to finishing!
You’re making an eternal impact on your children. If no one in your life is telling you what a fantastic parent you are, let me be the one. Regardless of how it feels some days, you’re doing it right and you’ll see the fruit of your labor in due time.
