Jesus Time- Our Bible Story this week is Jesus on the Cross. We hear about Jesus being arrested and tried and put to death, even though he was innocent. In His great love, Jesus chose to die for the sins of the world. He was put to death by the Roman government, but they wouldn't have had the power to do it, if Jesus hadn't allowed it. Everything that Jesus went through, the beatings, the crown of thorns, being crucified, were all fulfillments of Old Testament prophecies meant to show that He was the promised Messiah. This story will be a difficult one for preschoolers to understand, but as they grow and mature and understand more and more how much Jesus loves them and the lengths he went to so they would be saved, I think it's a necessary story for them to hear. May God richly bless you during this Holy Week and give you a joyous Easter!!
