Parable of the Hidden Treasure

In this session we are going to hear another parable that Jesus told. This Bible story is about a man who finds hidden treasure in a field. He sells everything he has so he can buy the field and keep the treasure for himself! Let’s watch the video to see what happens:

Time to Think and Pray



  • Have you ever found treasure?

  • How did the man in our story feel when he found treasure in the field?

  • If you had a chest what special things would you put in it?

The man in our story unexpectedly came across the most wonderful treasure! He thought it was so amazing that he had to have it for himself. But the field didn’t belong to him, which meant that the treasure didn’t belong to him either! So he sold everything he owned so that he could have enough money to buy the field and dig up the treasure! Now the treasure belonged to him!

Jesus told this story to teach us that knowing him, and being able to live in heaven forever, is the most wonderful thing we could ever have. It is like finding an amazing treasure! It is so wonderful that he wants us to be willing to give up everything else to have it.



Dear Lord, Please help us to remember that knowing you and being able to live with you forever in heaven is the most wonderful treasure we can have. Amen
