Bible Parables--discuss Bible parables and what they mean to us today. Use three or four of them and get into them in full detail. Use the dictionary to see what the word choice tells us. Read what Apostles and/or Prophets have said about those stories.
Read the New Testament all of the way through. Serve food with Bible names or from the Old World, like Peter's Fishsticks, pomegranate, figs, dates, Caesar's salad, Red Jell-O (then you have to part the Red Sea), unleavened bread, Sahara Dessert (see Desserts and Fun Foods to Make for ideas), Oasis tray (set up broccoli and cauliflower "trees" around and place dip in the middle). Dress up for the activity. When you get worn out, take a break sharing Bible Humor
Bible Stories--take any Bible story and retell it in modern times. Tell it using youth names or hypothetical people. Use actors, if you would like. Or, do a reader's theater using the Bible as your script. Or reenact a story in the original setting.
