Clues of the Good News: Family Gospel Devotion

15-day interactive family Bible study to help kids (and parents!) make connections between the Old Testament and the good news of Jesus.


Help kids put on their detective caps to uncover “Clues of the Good News” by exploring Old Testament passages that point to the Good News of Jesus Christ.

Families will create an investigation board with the clues provided in this family resource and read the daily verses and devotional. While the Scripture is being read, kids can complete one activity page per day (included in the download) to make their own Good News booklet. See a sample of the devotion here.

This study is designed to be flexible enough to meet each family’s needs. They get to pick and choose which elements of this study are best for their family.

Included with each of the 15 Bible readings:

📖 READ IT: a short Bible passage to read.

🖍 REPRESENT IT: a drawing page for kids to complete while reading.

🕵️‍♀️REPORT THE FACTS: a time to encourage kids to tell you what they noticed.

✝️ REFRAME IT: a short explanation to explain the Jesus-connection.

🙏🏼 RESPOND IN PRAYER: a prayer prompt.

🔍 RECORD THE CLUE: a clue that kids can cut out. They can use the clues to create a clue board on your wall, a mirror, or a bulletin board (see sample photo).

This Bible Study was written by award-winning author, Christie Thomas, and was illustrated by Casey Hilty.
