Looking for a Change of Pace from Traditional Bible Lessons?
Grab Your Students’ Attention
And Teach Them How to
Recognize & Resist Sin -
With Lessons Focused On the
Bible’s ‘Bad Guys’!
Bible lessons tend to focus on the “good guys” – people like Moses and Noah and Mary and, of course, Jesus.
There's a lot for us to learn from these admirable men and women.
But just as it's good to learn about the “good guys,” we can also learn a great deal by occasionally focusing our attention on the “bad guys.”
We can see where they went wrong … and learn valuable lessons about how to resist temptation as well as what can happen if we do give in to sin.
That’s why it’s also good to present lessons on men and women like:
- Herod the Great
- Herod Antipas (son of Herod the Great)
- Queen Jezebel
- King Saul
It’s time to learn what caused these people to “break bad” and what the consequences of their actions were!
Biblical Bad Guys:
9 Cautionary Tales for Kids
In this new lesson pack, children will learn how and why the bad guys went wrong.
They’ll learn how small sins can turn into big sins and they’ll learn not just to recognize sin once they leave the classroom but to find a path away from it.
Here's What's Inside:
Inside you will find 9 lessons, each a cautionary tale for kids to learn and grow from.
Each lesson focuses on one “Biblical Bad Guy” and the sin or temptation that led them down the wrong path:
Herod the Great
Giving in to Peer Pressure
Misery Loving Company
Lack of Vision
Blind Ambition (Stubbornness)
Each lesson focuses on what happened in the Bible and how to recognize the wrongdoing today.
A teaching script is provided for each lesson, which you can choose to follow word-for-word or use simply as a reference or jumping off point.
We use everyday household objects to generate interest, such as a string, balloon, or flashlight in our lessons.
Following the lesson, we provide a set of discussion questions.
The discussion questions bring the sins of the bad guys into a child’s modern-day world.
The bad guys and wrongdoings were picked because the wrongdoings are very recognizable among children.
The questions will help them figure out how to avoid similar wrongdoings or recognize if they see a friend going off track.
Each of the 9 lessons runs about 30 minutes.
We design lessons to be flexible. You can do all 9 “Bad Guy” lessons in order, or you can break up a series of “good guy” lessons and give kids something new to think about.
It’s often fun to cover two “Bad guys” in one hour-long lesson and compare/contrast their mistakes.
Here is Just Some of What Kids
Will Learn from this Lesson Pack:
- How just one small sin can lead to a tangled mess of bigger sins!
- How peer pressure can squash you down into a pint-sized version of yourself — and even make your life explode!
- The bad guy who is a perfect example for Proverbs 16:18 which says “Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall!” – and the important lesson we can learn from this person’s life!
- How not to be attracted to Satan’s wiles – this is important because if we attach ourselves to his ways, we will end up being as miserable as he is!
- How idols can be anything that draws us into the darkness ... and how love, hope, guidance and true peace are the real Light we should pursue!
- How easy it is to miss the big picture when you are blinded by desire for what you shouldn’t have!
- What it is like to focus on one thing at the expense of all others, especially when that one thing causes damage!
- How someone with seemingly everything can still allow insecurity to destroy his life!
- And much more!

As we see again and again throughout history, sin unchecked can lead to some very warped actions. But we must always remember that no matter what happens, God can turn all things to good.
As it says in Romans 8:28 (NIV) -
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
That’s why we should strive to teach kids to follow God and avoid the sins covered in this lesson pack!
