Teaching Epiphany in Sunday School

For some children, Epiphany may be a familiar time of the Church Year. Others may wonder what Epiphany means. Here's a simple way to teach about Epiphany.

On Epiphany, we give thanks to God for Jesus Christ, revealed in the Gospel as the Savior for all people. Epiphany means “to shine through.” This reminds us of the shining star the Wise Men followed, searching for the foretold King of kings. Jesus' birth fulfilled what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah: “The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness, on them has light shone” (Isaiah 9:2 ESV). The time of Epiphany reminds us to share Jesus, the Light of the world, with a world living in darkness.

To help your students understand the meaning of Epiphany, we've included a free Epiphany maze and a What is Epiphany? video for you to use in your Sunday School class or at home. May God bless you during this season!
