Teaching Children About Bible Miracles – Moses’ Shining Face

Teaching children about the Bible miracles is important because it helps them to see how nothing is impossible for God.  If God can do miracles in the Bible, He can do them in our children’s lives today.  Here is an easy way to do that interactively.

Moses' Shining Face

Today let’s focus on a Bible miracle from the book of Exodus:  The Miracle of Moses’ Shining Face (Exodus 34:29-35)

When Moses went up on Mount Sinai to meet with the Lord, he stayed their 40 days and 40 nights in God’s presence, and God gave to Moses the 10 commandments on 2 tablets of stone.  When Moses came back down there was something strange about Moses’ appearance.

Ask the children…

What was strange about the appearance of Moses’ face and why did it happen?

“When Moses came down Mount Sinai carrying the two stone tablets inscribed with the terms of the covenant, he wasn’t aware that his face had become radiant because he had spoken to the LORD.” (Exodus 34:29)

What did Moses do because his shining face scared God’s people?

“When Moses finished speaking with them, he covered his face with a veil.” (Exodus 34:33)

What did Moses do when he went into the Lord’s presence in the special tent of meeting?

“But whenever he went into the Tent of Meeting to speak with the LORD, he would remove the veil until he came out again.” (Exodus 34:34)

2 Corinthians 3:18 tells us that we as Christians can stand in the Lord’s presence with “unveiled faces”.  That is because of the work of Jesus Christ to make us holy and to bring us right into God’s presence.  Now that is something to shout about.

Now you can see how Bible miracles are God’s way of blessing the world.  Glory to Him!!!
