In this lesson, we consider how God rescues us and is with us. The snake bites and bronze serpent cure of Numbers 21 might seem a little odd, but the passage points to a greater savior. Just as looking at the snake on a pole helped the Israelites live, we look to Jesus on the cross for life. This message discusses various cures for things and how Jesus is ultimately our cure and answer for all that we need, most importantly rescue from sins! 

The story of the snake in the wilderness can be a strange one for young children to consider. However, it has a wonderful message reminding us of God’s mercy and faithfulness. While it’s hard to imagine the devastation of killer snake bite punishments, the “antidote” is a foreshadowing of Christ. The Israelites didn’t need to fear death when the bronze snake was near. We don’t need to fear death because we know Jesus is always close to us and promises to give us eternal life. He is the cure for sin and death, and will be with us always! 

“Lifted up to Rescue - Numbers 21:4-9” is a Christian educational resource that aims to teach children about the story of the bronze serpent in Numbers 21 and how it points to Jesus as the cure for sin and death. The lesson includes a discussion about how God provided for the Israelites in the wilderness, even when they were complaining and ungrateful. God sent poisonous snakes to punish the people, but He also provided a way for them to be saved. When they looked at the bronze serpent, they were healed. The lesson goes on to explain that Jesus is like the bronze serpent. He was lifted up on the cross so that we could be saved from our sins. When we look to Jesus, we are healed and have eternal life. The resource also includes a number of activities that can be used to reinforce the lesson, such as a snack activity, a game of freeze tag, and a craft project.
