Oriental Trading Is a good place to poke around to find small figures that can be used on story tables. Here are sets for Easter: Palm Sunday and, Empty Tomb. figures can be repurposed for telling other stories too!
Updated to add: The Last Supper, a three piece set (figures not removable on this one).
And look, a mini flock of lambs (about 1" tall)! Cute, plus useful in many stories!!
