Korah’s Rebellion

This lesson might be too intense for the

Korah’s rebellion – worksheet

 young child, but very important nevertheless, for here we learn of a man named Korah who wanted to minister where God had not called him.  We are warned of him in Jude.  Korah’s job as a Levite  ( a son of Kohath) was to transport the Holy things when they were moved from place to place without looking at them or touching them.  But Korah coveted  Moses’ and Aaron’s God-ordained authority.  Read what happened to Korah and his followers in Numbers 16. In Numbers 17, the people were complaining about the judgement that had fallen.  God showed them by a sign who He had chosen to minister before His presence.

The assembly is similar to the “Crossing Jordan” lesson.  Color Moses, Aaron and the first two groups of  people…the other  two are spares.  A piece of card-stock 6 inches by 8 1/2 inches will be your background.  Glue figures of  Moses and Aaron and plain tent to a strip of paper 3 1/2 in. wide and 7 1/2 inches in length.Cut as shown in sample below.  The open tent and figures with censers will be glued to a strip 3/4 in. by 3 1/2 inch.   On the end of this strip write “Korah’s Rebellion”.  Glue black construction paper, 3 in.  by 6 in. long to the middle of the background.  Fold horizontal edges 3/4 inch and glue down the edge 1/4 inch closest to the fold…that will leave 1/2 in. on the top and bottom to slide the piece  with Moses and Aaron. Write verse as shown in sample and prepare smaller strip with figures you have glued .  As you tell the story, separate the sections and pull the “wannabe’s” into the crack of the earth!:(
