Notes to help you
Explain the Video:
Jesus got angry because the temple was to be a
House of Prayer
not a place of merchants cheating people.
Then we see what we call
"The Last Supper"
where we get communion of the symbolic body and blood of Jesus.
Peter says he will never deny Jesus,
but he does 3 times.
Then Jesus goes to
The Mount of Olives
to pray to the Father.
There he is thinking and praying about
what would happen to him the next day,
and he begins to sweat great drops of blood.

When the authorities came to arrest Jesus,
Peter took his sword
cut off the ear of a servant.
Jesus picked up the ear and healed the man.
Jesus was taken and beaten and laughed at.
The suffering of Jesus,
because sin is terrible
and sin had to be paid for once and for all
we could go heaven if we repent of our sins and
Soldiers rolled dice for his cloak.
"My God, My God why have you forsaken me."
There are several reasons why Jesus said that -
ALL the sins of the World
were laid on Jesus, and he became sin
as he was on the cross. 2 Corinthians 5:21....BUT

For older children,
means "Save us now" in Hebrew.
Why were they shouting "Save us now" ?
The Jewish people were treated badly by Rome.
They were hoping that Jesus would come and save them from the Romans.
But Jesus came to save us from our sins.
