The Bible that Would Not Burn

Junior Level



Our Sunday school topic for today focuses on Matthew 24:35, which states that "Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away."


Handout: The Bible that Would Not Burn

  1. Ask the students - Have you ever seen a home that caught fire?
  2. Ask the students - What would probably happen if a Bible was caught in a house that burned down?
  3. I have a story about a Bible caught in a burning house.  (Use story in Handout)
  4. This is but one example of the miraculous power of God.
  5. Who performed many miracles as part of His 3 years of ministry?
  6. Why would it be important for Jesus to demonstrate this special gift from God?
  7. Think how stong our faith must be when we can't see such dramatic miracles.
  8. But please be aware of (and thankful for) miracles in each of our lives.
  9. Can you tel us of a miracle you have witnessed?
  10. Prayer


Have a Bible on a small table in the classroom.

discussion: Have I ever seen a miracle? Yes, several, and this was a miracle that took place before several witnesses.
God’s word is precious, and I believe He preserved that Bible that day to implant on our minds He takes care of it and
preserves it. This physical copy of His written word would normally have burned to ashes, along with everything else.
That day God chose that copy as one He would protect from the flames.prayer:


Matthew 24:35

Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
