Jesus Stories

The Crucifixion

Jesus walked to Golgotha.

The soldiers took the cross from Jesus.

They put Jesus on the cross.

They dropped the cross into a hole in the ground.

The crowd was saying mean things to him.

The crowd was making fun of Jesus.

Mary, Jesus' mother, and John, Jesus' friend, stood at the foot of the cross.

Jesus said to his mother, "John is your son."

Jesus said to John, "Mary is your mother."

The sky got very dark.

It stayed dark for three hours.

The earth began to rumble.

The earth began to shake.

Jesus said, "It is done."

He hung his head forward and died.

How Sad!  That makes me want to cry.  Does it you?

What do you think?

What do you think John and Mary thought?

Why do you think it got dark?

Why do you think the earth began to shake?

Write and tell me what you think, BUT, ask her parents first.

Lets Pray:
Dear God,
Thank you so much for keeping your promise.
Thank you for loving us so much you gave us Jesus.
Help me to always keep my promises.
Help me to always remember Jesus.
Help me to always remember it was for me that He died.
This we ask through Christ Our Lord.

  Can you think of a better prayer?
