Lesson Overview

In this week’s Gospel the risen Jesus appears to His Apostles and tells them that they are His witnesses. In this lesson, students will prepare their own witness testimony to Jesus to share the Good News with others.

Lesson Materials


  1. Have students read the Gospel passage, or read it aloud to your students, and then answer the focus questions. You may have students answer them on their own or you may discuss them together as a class.
  2. Review and discuss the correct answers when finished.
  3. Have your students read the information on You Are Witnesses and answer the questions to create their own witnesses and testimony to Jesus. When they have finished, put students in groups to have them share and practice their witnesses with each other. As students are writing, circulate around the room to assist as needed.
