Celebrate the Baptism of the Lord.
Use this image of Jesus being baptized by St. John the Baptist by Murillo and the scripture passage from Mark 1:11 to teach children about baptism of the Lord.
“And there came a voice from heaven: Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased.”
This scripture learning game is simple to use. Cut out the various pieces and mix and match to recreate the image and encourage scripture knowledge and mastery. A scripture piece and title piece are also included. Advanced learners can use this game to commit the specific passage to memory. The puzzle has four different levels - 4, 9, 12, and 20 pieces. Store all pieces in a small stationary envelope. Repeat for review as necessary.
This is especially appropriate to use on the celebration of the Lord's baptism, during a unit on the Sacrament of Baptism, or to highlight the First Luminous Mystery of the Holy Rosary.
