This volume explores life in the time of Jesus through 20 everyday items from 1st-century Palestine that children can see in colour photographs and make themselves. These items in turn provide a focus for 20 stories that tell of the life and teaching of Jesus.
Imagine growing up in the time of Jesusbeing part of the world that he lived in, seeing the same sights, sharing the same meals, taking part in the same customs and traditions. If you could really do that, you would discover that the story unfolds in a lively and bustling community in Palestine, in the time of the Roman empire. This book is designed to help you recreate that world with 20 different craft and cooking activities: clothes and food, and familiar objects from home, school, and synagogue. Each one is set alongside an episode from the life of Jesus, and the episodes build to provide a complete picture of his life and teaching."
