Memorize "The Living Christ": Week 5

My family is memorizing "The Living Christ: The Testimony of the Apostles" by breaking it down into
"The Crucifixion of Christ," artist unknown

small sections, using helps from as well as a couple of my own. My helps are aimed at adults and teenagers, but the website above has more ideas for younger children.

Week 5 Assignment
Memorize: “He was arrested and condemned on spurious charges, convicted to satisfy a mob, and sentenced to die on Calvary's cross. He gave His life to atone for the sins of all mankind. His was a great vicarious gift in behalf of all who would ever live upon the earth.”

By the way, here's how to pronounce spurious (I didn't know either!).

The Plan
  • Start in Week 1.
  • Print the Week 5 assignment and hang it where you will see it a lot. After a few days you may want to start using the fill-in-the-blank sheet instead.
  • This little booklet (image below) covers weeks 5-8. I punched a hole and used a carabiner to hold the pages. 
  • I created a second little booklet with the same pictures but no words (below). Email me if you want it as a DOC or PDF instead.
  • Keep reading this week's assignment and saying it out loud. Then go back and practice tagging it on to everything from the beginning.

Use the images below or the links for printable helps.
