The task:

Write a short essay describing ONE of the Biblical events below in graphic detail as though you had actually been present – each has a reference alongside to show you where to find it in the Bible.

Imagine being ONE OF THE PEOPLE mentioned in the Gospel account – such as Mary or one of the Apostles. Or INVENT A CHARACTER such as a bridesmaid at the wedding at Cana, or a relative of the blind man healed by Christ.

Note that some incidents are mentioned in more than one of the four Gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. You may like to look up other references too.

It will make sense to cross reference (read about the same event from different sources/books/authors) the event: what happened just before, and what happened afterwards could also make you essay more interesting. You may even think about publishing your story even if you don’t win! I will set an illustration competition to reflect you essay visually in summer term 1 for your art homework.

Your essay should use Ariel font, size 12 and must be your own unaided work.
Year 7 must write 1-2 A4 sheets
Year 8 must write 2-3 A4 sheets
Year 9 must write 2-4 A4 sheets

Here are the events from which you must choose:

• Angels announce the birth of Christ (Luke 2:4-20)
• The wedding at Cana (John 2: 1-11)
• Christ heals a blind man (Luke 18:35-43)
• Christ calms the storm at sea (Mark 4: 35-41)
• Christ is crucified (Matthew 27: 27-54)
• The Resurrection (Mark 16: 2-18)
