This is a 17 slide, highly animated, powerpoint presentation on Religion – Children’s Bible Stories - John the Baptist. Each of the slides are editable and can be reordered to adjust to your presentation, if needed. I have also included a slide called “Think about the Story” for student review and questions.
About the same time Jesus was born, another baby was born. His name was John and he was important because God had a special job for him. His birth was announced by an angel to his father Zechariah. Because he didn’t believe the message from the angel, he was struck dumb until after John was born!
When John grew up, he was a bit unusual. He chose to live in the desert and make is own clothes and find his own food. He probably looked like a wild man! His clothes were made of camel’s hair, and he had a big bushy beard and long scraggly hair! Guess what he ate? Mostly, locust and wild honey. Think of a locust as a big crunchy grasshopper (he probably dipped then in honey to make them taste better)!
Joh was fearless and called for the people to repent of their sins. As a sign of their true repentance John baptized the people and he was shocked when Jesus presented Himself to be baptized as an example to the people. people.
Herod continued to sin with his sister-in-law and her daughter. Tired of his message John was thrown into prison. Finally, Herodias, after a wild party in King Herod’s presence, asked her daughter to demand John’s head on a platter, which she did.
