Holy Week "Who's Who" & Vocabulary

a lesson resource from Neil MacQueen, Sunday Software

Stories are stickier and more quickly learned when they're less confusing to read and hear. Yet, the Holy Week stories are full of new names, strange place names, and challenging vocabulary words. To improve familiarity, recall, and comprehension of these important stories, each year many of us in Sunday School create quizzes, wordsearches and crossword puzzles. In the computer lab, that means using programs like Bible Crosswords and Wordsearch CDs or quiz-making programs likeFall of Jericho orBible Grand Slam CDs, which many of our customers already own. The thing I like about this list, is that in learning it, --it opens up all sorts of opportunities to dive into the story.

I've gone through all four Gospels in the NIV version to create the following list and you're welcome to use it.  <>< Neil
