Come and See (RE)

TOPIC Reconciliation


LEARNING FOCUS 4: Jesus teaches his disciples about forgiving.

The friends of Jesus asked him about forgiving people who had hurt them.  Peter thought it would be good to forgive them seven times and that would be quite hard to do.  Peter was surprised when Jesus told him that you have to keep on forgiving, but he did say that the person who had done wrong should say sorry and really mean it.


Peter came to Jesus and asked, ‘If my friend keeps hurting me, how many times do I have to forgive him/her? Seven times?

‘No, not seven times,’ answered Jesus, ‘but seventy times seven.’                                               Based on Matthew 18: 21-22.


Seventy times seven is a way of saying always.


How do you think Peter felt when he heard what Jesus had to say?

How do you make up with others after something has gone wrong?

How do you feel when you realise you have to keep forgiving?


Can you talk about forgiving - what do you need to do when someone has hurt you? 


Can you remember a time when this has happened to you, make a storyboard about it and include links between the story of Jesus and forgiveness.


Can you write words of friendship and forgiveness?
