Are you teaching your students about the leper who Jesus healed and came back? It’s in Luke 17:11-19. Here’s a teaching skit that you can use to go along with your lesson. It’s a short one, but getting the children involved in the skit will help them be active in their learning and will hopefully help them to understand it better.
- Ten Lepers
(Jesus is walking across the room/stage while the 10 lepers are walking towards him, but staying away)
Narrator: Now it happened as He went to Jerusalem that He passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. Then as He entered a certain village, there met Him men who were lepers, who stood afar off.
Ten Lepers: (together) Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!
Jesus: Go, show yourselves to the priests.
(10 lepers can go away from Jesus, but one of them stop, while the others keep going and off the stage)
Narrator: And so it was that as they went, they were cleansed. And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, returned, and with a loud voice glorified God, and fell down on his face at His feet, giving Him thanks. And he was a Samaritan.
Jesus: Were there not ten cleansed? But where are the nine? Were there not any found who returned to give glory to God except this foreigner? Arise, go your way. Your faith has made you well.
(leper leaves and goes off rejoicing)
