Jesus Stories

The Enemies Came

The apostles awaken.

They heard voices.

They saw lots of soldiers.

Judas walked to Jesus.

Judas kissed Jesus.

Jesus said, "Are you betraying me with a kiss?"

Peter ran to Jesus.

He drew his sword and was ready to fight the soldiers.

Jesus said to him, "Put your sword away."

The soldiers took Jesus.

The apostles were scared.

Would they be arrested too?

All of the apostles ran.

Jesus was left all alone with the soldiers.

What do you think?

Did you think Judas would do that?

Did you think that Peter should have fought the soldiers?

Would you have been afraid?

Would you have left Jesus all alone?

Write to me and tell made what you think, BUT, ask your parents first.

Let's Pray:
Dear God,
Thank you for teaching me the way I should be.
Thank you for sending a guide in Jesus.
I have learned to accept.
I have learned not to fight.
I have learned that peace is the way.
Please help me not to fight.
Please help me to accept even when it is what I don't want.
I know that Jesus didn't want to be arrested.
I ask this through Jesus Christ Our Lord.

Can you think of a better prayer?
