Lego Brick Testament Bible Story

Relaxing games, Prize games, Junior youth games, Artistic games


1. Find the story or book of the Bible you want to teach to your group at www.TheBrickTestament.com. The site has great Lego images which most people find entertaining in themselves. (Warning ... some images, although made from Lego and accurate to the text, are sexual in nature).

2. Copy and paste the relevant images into a document with one image per page. I did the book of Exodus and used 25 images for a group of 10 people. That was probably too many images but was enough to convey the key events.

3. Randomly hand out the pages to each member of the group.

4. Go around in a circle asking each person to put their photo down in the correct position.

5. If they get the position right then they can be rewarded with a prize (a lolly say). If they get it wrong then the leader gets the reward :)

6. Frequently through the game take the time to explain the story as it is unfolding.

7. At the end of the game get the kids to explain each image of the story.

Hey this is a great game!! You could even divide the youth into two teams... and make them answer questions at the end of the story. Questions could include 'is this story in the new or old testament?' 'what colour was God's beard?' etc. The team that gets more q's right wins!!

While a great game idea, PLEASE DO NOT use pictures from www.thebricktestament.com!! I have visited the website and was seriously disturbed by the mocking and blasphemous way the photos have been done and the comments made on the website. The lego artist who calls himself "reverend" is actually an atheist out to dishonor our almighty God!

Yea, you need to choose the images carefully. And yes, the creator is by no means Christian. The vast majority of the images however are done really well and are free to use in the way described above.

I love the idea of taking something that was meant to mock our faith and instead using it to strengthen us and teach our youth about God! Sucked in to the "rev", even his attempts at blasphemous crap can be turned around and used to glorify God! Ha!

Well put Alyce :) I used them again last week to good effect. This time i just told a Bible story and as i got to each scene i gave the next child in the circle the image. It really helped keep their attention. They were all keen to see what the next picture was going to be and try to work out exactly what it meant. And of course they wanted to know why the key character looked like Luke Skywalker.

I made a slide show from one of the stories to help keep the kids attention while we read through a somewhat difficult section of the Bible. I did edit some of the text though.
