The Resurrection of Jesus

John 20:1-9

Mary Magdalene came to the tomb where Jesus had been laid to rest and discovered the stone had been rolled away and Jesus was no longer there. She rushed to find Simon Peter and John to tell them someone had taken Jesus’ body away. The disciples and Mary came back to the tomb and an angel explained that Jesus had been raised.

The Bible Story Adventure Game

This story takes place in Jerusalem at dawn. Children are told to find Mary Magdalene approaching Jesus’ tomb. They watch a cinema of John 20:1-2, where Mary Magdalene is astonished to see the stone rolled away from the entrance of the tomb and then rushes to tell Peter and John.

Kids must then find a way into the home where Peter and John are sleeping. Upon entering, kids watch a cinema of John 20:2-6; they hear Mary Magdalene tell the two disciples, “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid him.” Kids see Peter and John rush to the tomb. John reaches it first and looks inside the tomb. Simon Peter arrives next and goes into the tomb.

Children are told to enter the tomb and find a Bible. They watch a cinema of John 20:6-9, where Peter can be seen looking around the tomb at the linen wrappings lying around. Kids see John enter the tomb also. The two disciples nod, understanding that Jesus is risen.

Children are tasked with helping Mary Magdalene tell five disciples about Jesus. Children find these people throughout the city of Jerusalem; Mary Magdalene tells them, “I have seen the Lord!” Children hear the people shout, “Praise be to God!” and “Glory to God!” Kids then enter the Bonus Round.

Kids can earn additional points by helping others they meet in the game. Children can help a baker put yeast in his dough, then distribute the baked bread. Kids can also help a young girl make a bouquet of flowers for her mother.
