Sunday School - October 4, 2020

Our Sunday School lesson for October 4 focuses on Jesus' telling of the Vineyard Parable also known as the Parable of the Tenants.  During the Sunday session, we will focus on listening.   


Read the NRSV Version here:
Matthew 21: 33-46


This version of the story is relatable for younger students: 



Here is the scripture passage from our weekly lesson plan: 



Here are some questions you can ask your students before reading the story: 

  • What is a good way to get someone to listen to you?
  • Can you think of some people from the Bible that listened to Jesus when he talked about God?
  • Can you think about some people that didn’t?

Here are some questions you can ask your students following the story: 

  • What did you think about the story?
  • Who were the people in the story that are mean? Why were they mean? 
  • Why do you think Jesus told the Pharisees this story? 
  • What was he telling them about God? 
  • Why do you think the Pharisees didn't want to listen to Jesus?


Here are some children's stories about listening:
