Talking about the Atonement
An illustration to get across the idea of the substitutionary atonement
that children will understand:
- It is like someone being willing to take a spanking for you. Except Jesus
was taking the punishment for sin, so He had to die. (Reference Hebrews 9:22b.)
- This simple illustration can even be given in the context of asking a child
in the club if they would be willing to take the punishment for a sibling who
is also present.
