New Testament Scripture-Story Grab Bag


To play this scripture-story game, remove these two pages from the magazine. Mount the picture cards on lightweight cardboard, cut them out, and put them into a small, sturdy bag. Have the first player pick one card from the grab bag and tell which New Testament story the card reminds him or her of. There are no wrong answers, but the player must explain why the card reminds him or her of that story. For example, the money card might remind you of the widow’s mite, the parable of the talents, money changers in the temple, or something else. If the player can’t think of a story, the other players may help. Keep playing until at least one story has been shared for each card. To expand the game, use the Old Testament Scripture-Story Grab Bag cards (see The Friend, October 1998, 13), and play the game with stories from the entire Bible.
