Sunday School Lesson 302 Israel Crosses the Jordan River with the Ark on dry ground

Lesson: 302

Lesson Name: Passage Over Jordan
Theme: Christ the Lifegiver and Resurrection

Reading: Joshua 3:1-17; 4:1-24

Memory Verse: 1 Corinthians 15:4
Memory Verse Text: He was buried and He rose again the third day according to the scriptures.

Talking Points

Point 1: Likely this lesson should be used for the more advanced classes. The passage over Jordan is a picture of the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Point 2: Some references should be used to show that the Ark is a true picture of Christ; this will require some digging, but it is possible that older students could do some research to supplement what the teacher has to say.
Point 3: God gave Heaven-sent instructions for the passage before it ever took place.  Likewise, God said that the Lord would rise again before it ever took place.  The people were also instructed to maintain a holy distance.  This was/is a reminder of the uniqueness and distinctness of the glory of our Lord.
Point 4: The Ark stayed in the midst of the river until all the people had passed over.  God intended that everyone would know the great significance of it all (Joshua 4:21-24).  In addition, the stones left in the river and placed upon the banks were a lasting testimony of what had happened.

Notes: This lesson presents a good opportunity to show interested believers the advantages and usefulness of having a concordance, a Bible dictionary, and a commentary.
