Video: A Science Experiment to Show How Christ Washes Away Sin

Zoe Romanowsky - published on 06/28/15

Here's how to help kids understand the power of Jesus

With a little help from some common household materials, this video demonstrates a simple experiment to teach children how Jesus Christ washes away sin. You’ll need to label three large jars, and here’s what you put inside each one:

Me and You: Tap Water
Sin: Water and Iodine
Christ: Water and Bleach

The experiment highlights how sin muddies us, the sinlessness and purity of Jesus, and the power He has to wash away ours sins—and all sin.
