What is a disciple?[edit | edit source]

Find in the Bible the names and occupation of the disciples and put each name and occupation on a separate card. (Matthew 10:2-4, Mark 3:14-19, Luke 6:13-16, John 1:41-48). Mix up the cards on the floor and see how many names you can match with an occupation.

Name two sets of disciples that were brothers. See Matt. 10:2.[edit | edit source]

These are the names of the twelve apostles: first, Simon (who is called Peter) and his brother Andrew; James son of Zebedee, and his brother John;

Discover which disciple was called first to follow Jesus? Read to find what that disciple did when he discovered Jesus was the Messiah? John 1:35-42.[edit | edit source]

35 The next day John was there again with two of his disciples. 36 When he saw Jesus passing by, he said, “Look, the Lamb of God!”

37 When the two disciples heard him say this, they followed Jesus. 38 Turning around, Jesus saw them following and asked, “What do you want?”

They said, “Rabbi” (which means “Teacher”), “where are you staying?”

39 “Come,” he replied, “and you will see.”

So they went and saw where he was staying, and they spent that day with him. It was about four in the afternoon.

40 Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, was one of the two who heard what John had said and who had followed Jesus. 41 The first thing Andrew did was to find his brother Simon and tell him, “We have found the Messiah” (that is, the Christ). 42 And he brought him to Jesus.

What did the disciples ask Jesus to teach them to do? See Luke 11:1.[edit | edit source]

Repeat the Lord’s Prayer.[edit | edit source]

Our Father in heaven,

Hallowed be your name,

Your kingdom come,

Your will be done,

On earth as it is in heaven.

Give us today our daily bread.

And forgive us our debts,

As we also have forgiven our debtors.

And lead us not into temptation,

But deliver us from the evil one.

Choose a disciple and learn three things about him.[edit | edit source]

Sing a song about the disciples and/or do a short skit.[edit | edit source]


(Tune "Jesus Loves Me")

Jesus called them one by one,

Peter, Andrew, James and John,

Next came Philip, Thomas, too,

Matthew and Bartholomew.

Yes, Jesus called them,

Yes, Jesus called them,

Yes, Jesus called them,

Disciples they became.

James the one they called the less,

Simon, also Thaddeus,

The twelfth apostle Judas made,

Jesus was by him betrayed

Be a disciple for Jesus.[edit | edit source]
