Events that Led to the Crucifixion of Jesus
This past Sunday, we watched a "portion" of the DVD, "The Jesus Movie." The kids were glued! The Last Supper, Judas' part in the arrest of Jesus, Peter cutting off a soldier's ear, Jesus healing the ear, and Jesus telling Peter he would deny him three times before the rooster crowed the next morning were emphasized . I stopped and started the DVD to further discuss events. Each child left with a communion sample and should know what the cracker and juice symbolize. When I stopped the DVD and told the children that we would continue the story next week, the moaning began. I loved it! I told them to be sure to be back next Sunday!
