Storyboard: The Parable of the Needy Gift
AMG4 – Notes for adapting:
For younger groups…
Introduce the objects earlier on in the session, enabling your young people to think through what each of them may mean for them.
For older groups…
Explore the passages about Jesus’ return in more detail, discussing what the end of time might look like.
For churched youth groups…
Some young people may have never heard that Jesus is coming back, thinking that heaven is somewhere else - a separate spiritual realm. Take this opportunity to discuss the ‘new earth’ that will be a fulfilment of creation at the end of time.
For unchurched youth groups…
Focus on the theme of eternity, asking your young people whether or not they believe in life after death, and use this as a springboard into a discussion about the biblical understanding of heaven.
