Parents, say: “in the video, the serpent bit the heal of the promised savior. Let’s find out what that means! [Open your Bible to Genesis 3:14-15.] After God created man and woman, He put them in a beautiful garden and gave them one rule. They were not to eat the fruit from the tree in the middle of the garden called, “the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.” Unfortunately, after being deceived by the evil serpent, Eve chose to disobey God and eat the fruit, and she gave some to Adam and he ate, too. Tonight, we’re picking up after Adam and Eve have disobeyed God and eaten the forbidden fruit. In the middle of telling the serpent how he will be punished for his actions, God mentions a promise about a future descendant of Eve.”

[Read Genesis 3:14-15]

Parents, say: “by defeating sin and death through His death and resurrection, Jesus proved that He is the Messiah promised throughout the Old Testament and the perfect display of the image of God! But what does it mean to be made in the image of God? Let’s find out tomorrow!”
