Bible Lessons

I teach the first and second grade Sunday School class at church. That is such a fun age. They can read, color, cut, and respond to questions. And they're not so old that they're all "been there, heard that, can we talk about the movie that I saw last night?"

Last week's lesson was on Saul. The Saul that saw the blinding light of Jesus shining down from heaven, became a believer, and then had his name changed to Paul. That Saul.

So I was telling the kids the story and said, "he heard a voice saying Saul, why are you persecuting me?" And then I explained that persecuting meant hurting. I asked, "who do you think was talking to Saul?"

One little boy raised his hand and said, "I think he fell on someone when he fell off his horse."

I'm telling you, I learn more from the lessons than the kids do most weeks. It's kind of like Paul Harvey's The Rest of the Story. Apparently that fun little detail was omitted when the Bible was written.
