Sunday School lessons for children from the Books of Joshua, Judges, and Ruth. Includes Rahab, 12 Spies, Deborah, Gideon (etc), Ruth, Naomi, and Boaz in the Bible.  Be sure to see the Writing Team's "Judges Then, Judges Now" lesson set, and "The Story of Ruth, Naomi, and Boaz" lesson set.

"WT" sets are in addition to all the great public content here at Join today!

The Lesson Summaries and Bible Background are open to all. The creative lesson plans in this Writing Team lesson set are open to Supporting Members. The stories and lessons in the Book of Judges can be harsh for young children, so we've gone to extra lengths to teach them in kid-appropriate ways and focus on how Jesus "judges" and treats others -- and how we should too.
