Bible Study: Visiting with Angels

How would you respond to a visit from an angel?


It is hard for us to think about how we might react if, suddenly, an angel came to visit. Would you run away screaming? Would you be immobilized in fear? Would you think to yourself "WOW! This is the greatest moment of my life!?"


In the stories surrounding Christ's birth, we see several encounters people had with angels. Ordinary people, like you and I, were visited with extra-ordinary messages from God. In this series, we will take a look at their stories: the hope that God brought to Zechariah and Elizabeth; the trust that Mary showed in God's promises; the Good News that was given first to the shepherds.


Each lesson contains four main sections:

  • Getting Started: At the start of each lesson, there is an activity provided to help get your students thinking about the main theme for the day.
  • Digging In: This is the foundation of the study. This section focuses on the content and context of the story from the Bible. It is set-up in a question-and-answer format, with leader helps provided in parentheses.
  • What About Today: In this section, we will try to bridge the gap between the first Christmas and today. This is where the application to your students' lives will take place. This section is also formatted in a question-and-answer style.
  • Closing Prayer: These activities are designed to challenge your students as they leave the study. During each of these closing prayer activities, students will be doing some simple writing to take with them as they go through their week.

 Blessings as you prepare for the celebration of Christ's birth!
