REVIEW:

Last session we learnt that Jesus can raise the dead and that all things are possible if we only believe and trust in Him. Any dead or dying situation in our lives He can restore and heal.

TEACHING:

Who knows what sin is? (Sin is anything we do, or say, or think or don't do that displeases God.)

Who knows the name of the first man and woman that sinned? ( Adam and Eve that's right .)

If you have sinned raise your hand - come on all of us have sinned.

FUN ACTIVITY: LONG JUMP TO HEAVEN Have one child dressed up like Jesus ( white wrap and blue sash across his chest ) standing at the far end of the room, draw a line on the floor far enough away from him that there is NO way the children can jump and reach him. Have the children take turns trying to long jump to Jesus. They all fail because:

MEMORY VERSE #2:

'All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God' Romans 3:23

Now because GOD is perfect we can't be HIS friend if we have sins in us.

This is a really BIG problem for us but GOD had a solution He solved that problem by sending His son Jesus who is perfect and if Jesus died for our sins then we can ask Him to forgive us and He will.

BIBLE STORY/DRAMA:

Animated video is available to compliment the Bible Reading

(A Mute version has been created for the teacher to read the Bible Verses as the animated video is playing)

When Jesus lived here on earth and grew up he had 12 close friends he called his disciples. (Allocate 12 children to be disciples ) He was having dinner with them (All sitting down pretending to be eating ) and He said " one of you is going to betray me to the enemies". All his disciples looked at each other wondering who it would be. Many saying " never not me ." Jesus said ALL of you will run away because you will be afraid when they come to take me away.

One of the disciples named Peter said " I will never turn away from you even if ALL the others do."

Jesus said "yes, even you will, in fact you will say you don't even know me 3 times before the rooster crows in the morning."

What sound does a rooster make? Let's hear all of you make that crowing sound. (Print Peter's colouring page visual aid)

Jesus knew all that was going to happen to Him and He was going to let it happen because Jesus loves us and so our sins can be forgiven.

Now Jesus looked at Judas one of His disciples and said go do it quickly. Judas had gone to the high priests and asked them how much they would pay him to lead them to Jesus. He knew they wanted to kill him because they were jealous of Him. The men told Judas they'd give him 30 pieces of silver, so he went to collect his money and lead them to Jesus. (Allocate Judas who leaves the room angry to do the betrayal )

Now after dinner Jesus and some of His disciples went to a park to pray. Jesus asked God is there any other way for people to have their sins forgiven then for me to die? He knew the pain He was going to have to suffer. But Jesus was willing to do it. WHY? (Because Jesus loves us and so our sins can be forgiven.)

Judas knew where they were going so he led the soldiers to the place. (Judas and a solders with sticks enter ) The soldiers came with torches and swords hundreds of them. Judas had told the soldiers the one I kiss is Jesus, just so they'd make no mistake in who Jesus was in the dark. So he kissed Jesus and the soldiers grabbed him tied Him up (Judas and soldiers act out the scene )

DISCUSSION:

•  Has anyone ever let you down? How do you think Jesus felt when his good friend betrayed him?

•  Have you ever let a friend down? How did that make you feel?

•  Does anyone know what it means to be jealous?

•  Has there ever been something that someone had that you were jealous over, is so what?

Those who had arrested Jesus took him to Caiaphas the high priest, where the teachers of the law and the elders had assembled. (Print Jesus taken to High Priest visual aid ).

Who took him to Pilate the governor, who was in charge like a king, he made big decisions. (Print Pilate's visual aid ).

Download Persian colouring page visual aid

Pilate asked Jesus is it true you claim to be king of the Jews? Jesus answered " yes this is true ." This made the people go wild they were so upset by Jesus answer. They yelled crucify him. (That means kill him).

Pilate said to the people "I can't find anything bad that Jesus has done. What do you want me to do with Him?" The crowd started yelling louder and louder. " Crucifies him, crucify him." Pilate sent him over to Herod, who was himself in Jerusalem at that time.  

(Print Herod visual aid ) When Herod saw Jesus, he was very glad, for he had long desired to see him, because he had heard about him, and he was hoping to see some sign done by him.

But he could find nothing wrong and sent Him back to Pilate who washed his hands of the entire situation but not wanting the people to turn against him had Jesus whipped.

Then they put a robe on Him (Place gold cloth over his shoulders ) and a crown made out of sharp thorns.

(Print Jesus crown of thorns visual aid ). Does anyone know what a thorn is? Do you think it would hurt to have them pushed into your head?

(Print Jesus and soldiers visual aid ). And why did Jesus let them do this to Him? (Because Jesus loves us and so our sins can be forgiven.)

Now the soldiers put Jesus clothes back on Him and put a huge, heavy wooden cross on His back to carry up the street to a hill to kill Him on it.

When they got to the hill called Golgotha, which means skull because it looks like a skeleton head from a distance.

The soldiers hammered big nails in Jesus hands and feet and picked the cross up putting it between two bad, really bad men.

Why did Jesus let them do this to Him? (Because Jesus loves us and so our sins can be forgiven.) Poor Jesus, they left Him up there until they thought He was dead and then stabbed Him in the side just to make sure. This is a very sad story isn't it? The sky turned pitch black in the middle of the day and a big earthquake happened that shook everyone. They took Jesus off the cross and put Him in a grave, it was like a cave. One more time. Why did Jesus let them do this to Him? (Because Jesus loves us and so our sins can be forgiven.) They rolled a huge heavy rock in front of the grave a put soldier outside of it because they had heard rumors that Jesus would come back to life. And that's a hint about what our next session is going to be about.
