This teachers workshop shows how to effectively use the meditation teaching method in the classroom. When the Risen Christ appears to Mary Magdalene in the garden she realizes that in some miraculous way, He still lives. We will present a meditation video to help students feel Mary’s emotions so that they, too, may share in her joy. Identifying with Mary’s experience will strengthen the students’ faith at this time in history, when belief in the Resurrection is under fierce assault.
By teaching the Resurrection using eyewitness accounts and a classroom meditation, teachers create a powerful experience to help students believe. This lesson plan presents the joyous moment at the tomb, when the Risen Christ first appears to Mary Magdalene. Also included are Bible stories, lecture material, and question sets. Striking illustrations and a large-screen video are set to the lyrics of Austin Mile’s popular hymn, In the Garden.
Aim: To strengthen your students’ beliefs in the Resurrection of Christ through lecture, Bible study, and a classroom meditation.
