Daddy Daughter Great Game: S1E1!

Compiled by Ramesh C. Reddy

Editors Note: Seven years ago today, Esther was seen kissing the Bible on April 19, 2013 which was posted on facebook. Little did I know, seven years later this day, she would play a daddy daughter Bible game before we looked at the memory. When I took my precious daughter Esther (7) to school, she would recite Bible verses from A-Z. Then, she would share 5 things she was thankful to the Lord for from the previous day. She would also love to play the alphabet Bible names game. She would start reciting the alphabet in her mind and when I say stop, whatever letter she stopped at, she would give me the Bible name for that letter and share about what she knows about that character. With this home order still going on due to the COVID-19 virus, this is a great game for anyone to play with. For the season opener, we used Esther's name to give 6 Bible names and what she recalled from the Bible going back and forth between daddy and daughter. The video of Esther is from 7 years ago. The game is from today.

 

Esther:

E for Esther:

Esther saved the Jews. Esther has my name. Esther has a cousin named Mordecai. Jesus told Esther to save the Jews. She heard that [Haman] was going to kill all her people.  Because of Esther, the king arrested Haman.

Daddy Ramesh:

E for Elijah:

Elijah won a battle against Jezebbel. Elijah became depressed and wanted to die because he was afraid. Elijah thought he was the only righteous person left. Elijah was told by God that there are others who won't bow down to Baal. Elijah dared the worshippers of the idol Baal to bring fire to the logs  but no matter how much they prayed to the idol Baal, the fire did not come. Elijah then challenged them to pour water on the logs and prayed to the Lord for  fire to come on the logs and fire came. Elijah later got rain to come too after a 3 year drought. Elijah is mentioned in James about the prayer of a righteous man availeth much bc Elijah prayed and rain came. Elijah realized the Lord was not found in fire, water, earthquake, but in  small voice. Elijah appeared to Jesus and 3 of the disciples during the Transfiguration.

Esther:

S  for Simon:

Simon Peter was a fisherman. Simon was a disciple of Jesus. God said, I am going to change your name to Peter, which means Rock. Simon Peter had a little brother.

Daddy Ramesh:

S for Saul:

Saul persecuted Christians. Saul wanted all the Christians to die. Saul was there when they stoned Stephen to death because Stephen was worshipping the Lord Jesus. Saul was blinded by a light on his way to Damasus to persecute Christians. Saul heard a voice saying, 'Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me? It is Jesus' Saul was told by Jesus to go find a man named Ananias to restore his sight. Saul gave his life to Christ and changed his name to Paul. The Apostle Paul preached to the Gentiles writing many epistles inspired by divine inspiration. Paul was so joyful even when he was in jail writing to the Philippians to rejoice in the Lord. Paul was content whatever he had and did not worry. Paul was a Roman citizen. Paul mentored Timothy and went on Evangelistic missions with Silas. Paul wrote letters to the Romans, Corinthians, Ephesians, Galatians, Thessalonians, to Timothy, Titus, Philemon, Colossians, and Philippians.

Esther:

T for Titus:

Titus got three letters from Paul, chapters 1, 2, & 3.

Daddy Ramesh:

T for Thomas:

Thomas was called 'Doubting Thomas' because when the disciples told him that they saw Jesus on Resurrection Sunday, 3 days after his crucifixion, he did not believe them. Thomas said, unless I see the nail scars in his hands and put my finger there and put my finger and touch his side, I won't believe. Thomas was then surprised to see Jesus in the room and said, "My Lord, and My God!" Thomas was told by Jesus to put his fingers in his hands and to the side. Then, Thomas was told by Jesus: 'Blessed are those who do not see me and yet believe."

Esther:

H for Herod:

Herod was a king. Herod was a person people go to when they did something bad. Herod could not do anything when they wanted Jesus to be crucified. Herod had a lot of servants and a big palace.

Daddy Ramesh:

H for Hosea:

Hosea was a minor prophet in the Old Testament. Hosea was commanded to marry Gomer who was a prostitute. Hosea obeyed God and married Gomer. Hosea found out that Gomer was unfaithful to him and still loved her very much. Hosea learned from the Lord that Gomer represented Israel and her unfaithfulness to the Lord but the Lord never gave up on Israel. Hosea learned that the Lord loved Israel very much even though the people were faithless. Hosea also learned the Lord's faithfulness towards Israel.

Esther:

E for Elizabeth:

Elizabeth had a baby named John the Baptist who was Jesus' cousin.  Elizabeth had a husband. Elizabeth was helped by Mary during her pregnancy.

Daddy Ramesh:

E  for Emmanuel:

Emmanuel means 'God is With Us'. Jesus is called Emmanuel.

Esther:

R for Reuben:

Reuben did not do something good and slept with [Jacob's wife].  Reuben was Joseph's big brother. Reuben's dad was Jacob. Reuben was not a good brother because he wanted to sell Joseph.

Daddy Ramesh:

R for Ruth:

Ruth was Naomi's daughter-in-law. Ruth was praised by the people of the town because she loved her mother-in-law more than seven sons. Ruth had more love for her mother-in-law than seven sons combined. Even though Ruth's husband died and she could have gone back to her parents, she did not. Ruth was a Moabite. Ruth was so loving that she did not abandon her mother-in-law but told Naomi, where you go, I will go. Your people will be my people. Ruth married [Boaz]. Ruth became the mother of Obed, the grandmother of Jesse, the great-grandmother of King David, and the great-great grandmother of King Solomon.
