Training for Children's Ministry Course-14: Teaching Old Testament Narrative
Before you carried away with exciting visual aids prompted by OT stories you have to be careful to get the meaning and application right. Andy Gawn goes through 4 principles (all beginning with 'R') to help leaders correctly understand and teach Old Testament narrative to children: Review the history: explain the historical context. Remember that you shouldn't expect what happened then to happen now. Recognise what God is doing as part of his whole plan of salvation. Reinforce things that point to Jesus.
