Scavenger Hunt Intro

Clue #1 Luke 2: 6-12
This story begins in a different way. The baby Jesus was sleeping on the hay. He was the Messiah, God’s Only Son, but his journey began as a quiet one.
FIND: A barn or manger
TALK: Why don’t you think Jesus was born rich or mighty, but as a humble baby, just like us?
Clue #2 Matthew 3:13-17
He grew and gained respect from God and man. His calling to save us, we didn’t yet understand. He declared He came to set the captives free and was baptized by John to begin that journey.
FIND: A stream, river, pool, or any other kind of water.
TALK: What do you think baptism meant for Jesus? What does it mean for us today?
Clue #3: Matthew 4:18-20
Jesus began to teach all the people. They’d come to hear Him, no building or steeple. He’d talk in the mountains and down by the sea and to those who’d listen, He’d say, “Follow me.”
FIND: A place where someone in your family has learned.
TALK: Where do you think Jesus would teach if He were living and teaching in our neighborhood?
Clue #4 Mark 4:35-41
Many people came to Jesus in need, some sick and some lame, some broken indeed. Because Jesus would heal, touch, and feed news of Him spread through Israel with speed. 
FIND: Something you think is amazing.
TALK: What makes this place or thing so amazing? What was so amazing about what Jesus did?
Bonus Clue Matthew 21:1-11
FIND: A branch and have a parade. Shout “Hosannah!”
TALK: In our scripture reading the people asked, “Who is this?” How would you answer that question about Jesus.
Clue #5 Matthew 26:20-30
But some people didn’t like Jesus, God’s Son and started a plan to get rid of The One. Jesus gathered his friends for a Passover meal and shared what would happen. It seemed unreal. 
FIND: A place your family can eat together. Share a meal!
TALK: At the Last Supper, Jesus explained communion for the first time. What do you know or not understand about communion?
Clue #6 Luke 22:39-48
Into the garden, Jesus went to pray. He asked His Father if this had to be the way. His friends were there too, but they fell asleep. When He was arrested, they started to weep. 
FIND: A garden or patch of flowers.
TALK: Once, these flowers were just a patch of dirt. How does Jesus bring new life to us, like He does to these flowers?
Clue #7 Matthew 27:32-56
Betrayed by a friend, Jesus was arrested. He was tried by a court. His death was requested. On that saddest of days, our Savior did die but within that dark moment our salvation did lie. 
FIND: A place where someone in your family has learned.
TALK: The cross was a symbol of great suffering, but also great hope. How can we have hope in Jesus?
Clue #8 Luke 24:1-12
Some may think that our story is done, But they would be wrong! It has only begun! For after three days, Jesus rose from the dead to give us new life forever, just as He said! 
FIND: Something empty (be creative)!
TALK: Our greatest hope comes in knowing that we get to spend forever with Jesus! How can we celebrate that this Easter?
