99. The Picture Cards - let them tell the Bible story

How do you tell a Bible story to a group of children or teenagers for whom the story is so well known that they can probably tell it better than you? :-)

That is a tricky question!

What!? You don’t tell the story?

No, you let them tell it to each other in such a way that it is fun, everyone participates and the only thing you have to do, is ask good questions and share your own story.

There are three very simple, but effective ways how you can encourage children and teenagers to share their insights into a Bible story:
