Teaching Children About Bible Miracles – Zacharias Is Struck Dumb

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.

Today let’s focus on a Bible miracle from the book of Luke:   Zacharias is struck dumb. (Luke 1:1-20)

Zacharias was a priest. He and his wife Elizabeth were childless and were now old.  Zacharias was serving in the Temple and an angel of the Lord appeared to Zacharias and spoke to him.

Ask the children…

What did the angel promise to Zacharias?

“’Don’t fear Zacharias.  Your prayer has been heard.  Elizabeth, your wife, will bear a son to you.  You are to name him John.’”  (Luke 1:13)

How did Zacharias respond?

“Zacharias said to the angel, ‘Do you expect me to believe this? I’m an old man and my wife is an old woman’.” (Luke 1:18)

What did the angel tell Zacharias would happen to him as a result of his unbelief?

“But because you won’t believe me, you’ll be unable to say a word until the day of your son’s birth.”  (Luke 1:20)

Zacharias was mute until the day that his son John was born.  God wants us to believe even the seemingly impossible things that He tells us He will do.  He wants to bless us far beyond what we can understand.

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