Bible story: The sheep and the goats

Creative activities based on the Bible story of The sheep and the goats

The Parable of the Sheep and the Goats in Matthew 25:31-46 is a story told by Jesus about the final judgment. In this parable, Jesus separates people into two groups, like a shepherd separates sheep and goats. The sheep are praised and welcomed into heaven because they cared for the needy, fed the hungry, and gave water to the thirsty. The goats, on the other hand, are condemned and sent to hell because they did not help those in need.
