The Passover Door Video (VBS 2013)

THE PASSOVER DOOR

Passover Door - Workshop

Elizabeth explains how to “apply the blood” on the doorposts of the Passover Door.

Recently, at the Publisher’s VBS Seminar in Texarkana, Elizabeth Stacks displayed her “Passover Door” and explained how she constructed it, and how to apply “blood” to the top and sides of the door. The Passover Door idea is found in the Director’s Plan Book, and the transparencies for sketching the scene are found in the Room Decorations Transparency Book.

 

HOW TO BUILD THE PASSOVER DOOR

Hebrew family eating the Passover mealElizabeth used a little creativity, velcro and red felt to bring this Passover scene to life. You can download her instructions that she gave at the workshop (Passover Door – Handout Page - PDF.) She noted that “applying the blood” in this manner allows for repeating the lesson for several groups of students.

Children at VBS will love the realistic atmosphere, and will be able to relate to the family eating the Passover meal. Notice that Elizabeth Room Decorations Transparency Book , p 93 - Passover Doorplaced the Hebrew family behind the door; when you open the door, you see them sitting at the table. The illustration that is found in the Director’s Plan Book, and the artwork in the Room Decorations Transparency Book also allows for the family to be in a window. VBS Decorations

In her handout, Elizabeth referred to the Passover Door as a “Door of Faith.” The blood-covered door displayed their faith in God. The Israelites were redeemed from Egyptian slavery by trusting (having faith) in their Mighty God. That is what Lesson 3 is all about. Of course, the Passover Lamb was a type of Jesus Christ who redeemed all people who trust (have faith) in Him.

 

Lesson 3 VBS Workshop - The Passover DoorLESSON 3 – GOD SAVES ME

Setting: The Passover at an Israelite House in Egypt

Bible Event: God spared Moses and the Israelites by the Passover (Exodus 12:1-14).

Student Application: The Passover pictures God’s salvation in the sacrifice of Jesus, the Lamb of God. Christ’s sacrifice means God can forgive our sins and save us (1 Corinthians 5:7; 1 Peter 1:18, 19; 3:18; Isaiah 53:3-6).

Memory Verse: John 1:29, “The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.”

Student Objective: I am saved by God.

Lesson Purpose: The student will comprehend that Jesus died on the cross to save him from his sins.

 

VBS 2013: THE MIGHTY GOD — GOD LEADS MOSES AND ME

The Mighty God VBS is based on Jeremiah 32:17, 18, “Ah Lord GOD! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee:…the Great, the Mighty God, the LORD of hosts.” As the students study the life of Moses, they will learn at the Nile River that God Loves them, at the Burning Bush that God Calls them, at the Passover that God Saves them, at the Red Sea that God Guides them, and in the Wilderness Desert that God Cares for them. (See article by our Editor in chief, Larry Clements.
