The scriptures have many stories of Jesus Christ. I can learn about Jesus Christ when my parents and teachers read me scripture stories.
I will read the lyrics of a song called Tell me the Stories of Jesus that talks about how children may feel when they hear scripture stories about Jesus:
Tell me the stories of Jesus I love to hear;
things I would ask him to tell me if he were here:
scenes by the wayside, tales of the sea,
stories of Jesus, tell them to me.
First let me hear how the children stood round his knee,
and I shall fancy his blessing resting on me;
words full of kindness, deeds full of grace,
all in the lovelight of Jesus’ face.
Into the city I’d follow the children’s band,
waving a branch of the palm tree high in my hand;
one of his heralds, yes, I would sing
loudest hosannas, “Jesus is King!” ()
