Teach your kids how Jesus’ birth fulfilled prophecy with the 40 adorable cards in this Christmas Bible verses for kids set.
There’s a popular saying that the days are long but the years are short. Have you heard it? As a mom of four kids–two grown and two teens, I can tell you this saying is true. The years fly by.
We only have about 18 Christmases with our kids at home. There are so many things we do for Christmas that seem important. There are traditions we insist on. New pajamas, family photos, Christmas cards, sweet potato casserole, beautifully wrapped gifts, and decorating the house–those things seem so vital to our celebration of Christmas, don’t they?
But what is Christmas? It is the time that we celebrate the birth of Jesus, our Lord and Savior. Teaching the Bible to our kids, and pointing them to Jesus, is the most important thing we can do for them.
If we aren’t pointing our kids to Jesus at Christmas, then all of our celebrations and traditions are meaningless. We can’t let our children leave our home thinking Christmas is just a festive time that revolves around what we can get. We want to go deeper with our faith. We want to lead our kids in the path of life and truth. We don’t need to insist others alter their celebration of Christmas. We just need to do it ourselves. We can quietly and winsomely make our own family’s celebrations about Jesus, his coming, and the reason it matters two millennia later.
Nothing in Scripture is random. Every event was ordained by the God of the Universe as a part of his great big plan.
The birth of Jesus is a spectacular example of the outwork of God’s plan for humanity.
We tell our kids about baby Jesus being born in a manger, but what if we told them about how Jesus fulfilled prophecy given to men by God hundreds and thousands of years earlier?
What if we made it clear to our kids that Jesus is God-made-man?
Our kids are able to understand that God the Son came to earth, born as a human in the fullness of time, to redeem us from our sins. This is an event that deserves our awe, and our excitement. It’s also an event worthy of our wonder. Jesus was born not as a king in a palace, but as a pauper in a stable. We learn much about humility from the humility of Jesus.
It’s important that we share prophecy about the birth of Jesus with our kids. It’s also important that they understand how that prophecy is fulfilled in his coming. Don’t miss your opportunity to share the amazing truth about Jesus with your kids this Christmas.
Use this set of Christmas Bible Verses for Kids to help you teach your kids about the birth of Jesus–and the prophecies it fulfilled.

Help Your Kids Learn and Love the Bible
You want your kids to learn and love the Bible.
You want to teach the Bible…
As parents, we deeply desire the best for our kids. We look for the right schools, we make them eat right and exercise, and we get them involved in extracurricular activities. We take our job as parents seriously.
But are we also putting our time and energy into
teaching them the Bible? Giving them the life-changing, soul-nourishing words of Scripture is not only doable, it’s an essential part of parenting kids for Jesus. And the good news is, studying God’s Word as a family doesn’t have to be difficult!
2 Timothy 2:15, ESV, says:
Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved,
a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.
Our job, as parents who love Jesus, is to help our kids become approved workers, unashamed and rightly handling the word of truth.
The good news? Teaching the Bible isn’t hard. Your family can learn the Bible together.
…and you can!
