Family of Jesus Story Figures - Matthew 1:1-7
The Family of Jesus: Use these figures to discuss Jesus’s family.
Tip: Consider how Jesus’s family is like yours. He had cousins, a mom, a father, who could not be with him while he was on earth. He had Mary’s husband, who raised Jesus as his own son. We know he had brothers, and sisters. He also had past ancestors (as noted in his genealogy listed in Matthew.) How do you think their family acted around each other? Do you think Jesus, as a child, had chores, ran races, laughed or even at times cried? We know once he grew, he loved children, “Let them come unto me.” He must have been a great older brother! Guess what. He is your older brother too!
