2. N.A.S.A. says the Morning Star (Rev. 22: 16), and the Evening Star,
are both the planet Venus. Yes, even today, many people look up into the
night sky and mistake planets for stars. And in fact, to the untrained
eye, planets do look like stars. The Morning star, is the first star seen
most evening, and the star seen latest in the morning. It is much brighter
then any of the real stars, because it is not a star, it's a planet. Venusis
much closer to the Earth and the Sun than real stars are and because
of it's thick cloud cover it reflects a lot of sunlight making it shine very bright. That is why you can still see the Morning Star for about 15 minutes after the other stars have faded away each morning. In the olden days people worked from sun up to sun down. The Morning Star was often the first thing a person saw each day. Like the Morning star, Jesus should be the first thing in our lives each day, standing out above everything else. Praying the first thing each morning gets the day started right, and bright.

(Note: To see the Morning Star, get up just before dawn. Remember Venus is between the Earth and the Sun. So Venus can be anywhere from directly over head to where the Sun is coming up. Before the Sun comes up the stars will start to fade away. It is possible that at the most, you may see as many as four planets (they will look like stars) which will remain for up to about fifteen minutes more then the rest of the real stars. To see four planets you really have to be looking, but it is very common to see Venus and Mars at the same time. Venus will be the closest and brightest of all the planets you may see to the Sun. Mercury is closer to the Sun than Venus, but it is very hard to see. (DO NOT LOOK AT THE SUN! and it may damage your camera!) To see the Evening Star, Venus, look in the same general area that you looked in in the morning. You might see the same planets in the evening. The first star you see is the Evening Star, Venus. If you happen to see up to four about the same time, they are planets. The closest and brightest to where the Sun went down is Venus. The Evening Star can be seen for about fifteen minutes before all of the real stars start to shine.)
Skit Outline ideas:
NOTE: Creating historically accurate skits about Jesus being born in
Bethlehem and living in Nazareth, is hard and expensive. You would need
to make all kinds of props and backgrounds. It is much easier to do skits
based on life today, and show Jesus in action today.
1. Create a skit that shows two people talking and one shares Jesus.
2. Show someone that is afraid to go to school because of gangs and violence, and
show how they need to pray for protection and deliverance.
(See the Sunday school lessons section )
3. Show someone that is trying very hard to learn and just can't get it. That person needs
supernatural wisdom. James 1:5-10.
4. Show how a planet full of hate will destroy itself, but a planet full of love will grow.
5. And yes you can have some fun too: Actors take turns reading a few verses and
teaching. One reads Rev. 22: 16 and suddenly looks up and shouts
"Jesus is the planet Venus" everyone else looks at him and yells
"... NOT..." then explains why not.
