Advent 2011: Day 18

Rejoice greatly, Daughter Zion! Shout, Daughter Jerusalem! See, your king comes to you, righteous and victorious, lowly and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey

DAY 18: King (Zechariah 9:9) Read and Discuss. Who is the King in this story? Is this prophecy? Was it a prophecy that has been fulfilled? 

Language Arts: How can Jesus be a servant and a king? Learn the literary term "paradox." Have your children think of more examples of a paradox. 

Art: Make crowns. Older children can perhaps illustrate the combination of Jesus as servant and king. 

History: Talk about some Kings in the Old Testament or any other time period. Were they good kings or bad kings? why? 

Civics: Why doesn't the U.S. have a King?
